Food at Carraig Mhor
The name 'Carraig Mhor' has long been linked, in the minds of many locals and visitors, with excellence in food. It was, for many years, a well-known and popular restaurant owned by Peter and Penny Albrich and renowned as one of the foremost on the island for excellent food. Carraig Mhor returned to a private house until Helen and Andy bought it in 2014. Of course, unlike Peter, we are not culinary advisors on the QE2 but we hope, (in some small way), to maintain the Carraig Mhor tradition of serving good food using fresh, local produce from Arran. Home cooking and 'house' breakfast specials feature on our breakfast menu and we offer some 'Carraig Mhor' traditional recipes.
We invite guests to make their selection of main course in advance from our Breakfast Selector as some of our dishes require advance preparation. We cook to order and fresh so your breakfast will be a leisurely affair. (Please be sure to let us know if you have a ferry to catch!). You will have plenty of time to enjoy the aroma of newly-baked bread and freshly ground coffee and to gaze out of the window at the ever-changing, sea view.
We believe 'vegetarians should have fun too'! So our vegetarian options have been compiled with care and thought and are not just the standard dishes minus the meat!
PLEASE ADVISE US OF ANY ALLERGIES OR DIETARY REQUIREMENTS AT BOOKING OR CHECK-IN.

If you would like to take advantage of our packed lunch please complete your 'packed lunch choice' and leave it in reception by 11pm so that your packed lunch may be freshly prepared in the morning before we cook your breakfast. (Please note there is an additional charge for packed lunches).
