Was really disappointed on my recent visit to this restaurant. I was there with some elderly friends and we opted for the market menu, the meal was really third rate and not very warm. I have been in this restaurant on numerous occasions and it has always been good, however this time we were all a bit put off. Hopefully... More

First visit here and was very impressed. Although it was busy it had a great atmosphere. We ordered Fish and chips which was beautifully presented and tasted great. Happy with the price which was a lot cheaper than our local restaurants and it tasted much better. Staff were efficient and attentive. I will definitely return when I'm next in Hamilton,

First time having a meal at this establishment, staff were friendly and we were seated within seconds of arriving. Good selections on the menu to cover a wide range of tastes, we each had a main course and coffee, most enjoyable. Carrigans have staff who keep the establishment in good order once customers have left.

I had to attend an event which took place in Carrigans. Food was provided and I was impressed. Much was seemed to be made on site and was first class. I would recommend this venue.

Heard great things about Carrigans, Hamilton (there is also a Carrigans, Blantyre). Staff are helpful and friendly, just a little rough around the edges. Superb menu with plenty of Gluton Free choices and all clearly marked. Main "Put-Off" was that there were several people clearly, in view of the staff, sitting in the bar area, Vaping. No smoking rule in... More
