I'd love to be able to write a full review of this place but am unable to do so because they literally don't allow you over the threshold unless you're going to eat here. So, no matter whether or not the place is busy, no matter whether or not they have tables booked for meals later, if you turn up... More

We both really enjoyed our meal last week. Other half had the Monkfish and I had a steak. One of the best pints of Moretti on draft I've tasted. Great service too. Will be back.

Been here before and it was good. This time it was absolutely fantastic! I would recommend The Craigie Inn to all. Food was delicious and the staff great. Cullen Skink to start, then Toulouse sausage and mash for main. In the words of big Arnie... " I'll be back"

Newly renovated restaurant with very attractive interior. The food that we had was home made and absolutely delicious. I understand that the menu has recently been changed with the introduction of a new chef. Well worth a visit.

Just back home after a lovely anniversary dinner at The Craigie Inn. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Fiona and Danielle are certainly the perfect hostesses, very attentive and nothing is too much bother. Lovely decor and the food is amazing. The cauliflower cheese risotto was just wonderful and the monkfish curry is something else. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her... More

Special mention for the Sunday Roast which was... More

We used to go to this Inn many years ago, then it closed down so we were pleased to hear recently that it had reopened and were not disappointed. Very welcoming, lovely dining room and a very enticing menu. We were there for Sunday lunch, and chose the pork belly and the lamb hot pot. Both were plentiful and very... More
