The Craigie Inn is situated in the village of Craigie on the outskirts of Kilmarnock, only 30 minutes’ drive from Glasgow. Serving Contemporary modern classic food in a warm cosy environment. It is a short trip for anyone in the surrounding towns and villages. We have lovingly refurbished the restaurant and have created a modern yet cosy restaurant whilst keeping many of the traditional features. The result is perfect and the Craigie Inn is once again - back to life!
