We were in a couple of weeks ago and had the best cheeseburger and chips ever. Staff were lovely. Highly recommended. Looking forward to our next visit and trying the Cullen Skink.

Found this superb tearoom when we visited Helensburgh.They were very busy when we entered but the wait for our food and drinks was well worth it.Lovely cosy atmosphere and will definitely be back when we are in the part of Scotland.

I recently visited the Craigard Tearoom with a friend for the first time after being recommended to go. I was delighted to see Cullen Skink on the menu as it's always one of my faves! It was absolutely delicious, definitely the best I've had and quite a plateful!! My friend ordered the quiche from the specials board which she also... More

I am nervous to write a review on a recent visit to Craigard Tearoom, as I can see the negative reviews below have all been responded to with a very defensive and unfriendly manner - similar to the way guests are treated in the tea room itself. The tearoom was recommended to me by a friend, and being new to... More

I remember you very well . I assume the review is because we Could not accomodate the large pram you struggled in with . I did however bend over backwards to supply you with a mother care chair seat for your child. I also warned your milk bottle against all regulations so that your child could eat all the food...

Thankyou for your review at Craigard. We are a small Tearoom offering an ambitious menu for our size . This takes time and we appreciate people that prefer the wait to fast food takeaways. Our Chef has been with us for countless years now and we are proud of the consistency this creates . We welcome you back soon. More

Heard good things about this café, and popped in for a quick coffee before the bus arrived. After a minute or two we managed to navigate the overly packed sitting area to a table. The tables and chairs are chunky wood and leave little room to manoeuvre as there are so many. The décor is cheap Scottish/Café and feels 'sticky',... More

This review is entirely false . I note that our Tearoom is your only review made on Trip Advisor. We have had no Gluten Free Cakes this week that needed cut as owner on Holiday. All were slices and not cakes . Everything else you have childishly remarked on does not warrant a reply. Another false review - yawn. More

First thing you notice is that it's warm on a cool Autumn day with tartan on the walls and comfy seats. Good choice on the menu, we settled for the soup which came with fresh brown bread and plenty of butter, delicious. Followed by cake and tea. Staff were friendly and the service was quick. Not the cheapest but certainly... More

Visited CraIgard Tearoom for the first time today. It was lovely and clean and had a Scottish theme with tartan crockery and various tartan on the walls with an explanation of the Clans, a lovely touch for the locals and tourists. The waitress was very patient waiting on our order as we were talking. I can recommend the Cullen Skink... More
