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

On a visit to Helensburgh on a trip home from Spain we fancied a coffee and cake. The notice on the door said open till 4.30. So at 4.05 we entered to be told we don't serve after 4.00. That of course is their prerogative, but if you stop serving at 4.00 say so on the door. Very lucky in... More

Drinks arrived 5minutes after cakes were finished, and 10minutes later a cheese toastie arrived. (No side salad but £1.95 colslaw). Insult to injury, server tried to overcharge me by £2! £4.95 millionaires cheesecake slices were amazing, kids... More

My daughter and I popped into the Craigard whilst in Helensburgh visiting my mum. The menu was varied and the assortment of cakes and tablet were very tempting, but we managed to restrain ourselves and ordered Fish and Chips. The food was very tasty and well presented.
