Casual Dining

It’s your holiday and “Self-catering” doesn’t always mean cooking for yourself.

Supper in the garden

First night meal when you arrive?

Big numbers to feed?

Just want a quiet night in?

Re-discover honest-to-goodness, old school cooking and the true, communal essence of a family meal.

You’re in charge. Dining In is the great, no-hassle option for a home-cooked family meal without you having to lift a finger. Maybe it’s a bit retro, but it’s your choice. Pick the meal you’d like to serve, we’ll cook it, deliver it  and all you do is get everyone to the table and enjoy the pleasure of sharing…

Two courses from £16.65 each
Three courses from £20.50 each
Delivered to where you are on Arran.

A carry-out meal of starter, main course with accompaniment and half of a side dish (that you have to collect yourself) can still cost more.
