Pop-up food in Ardfern

Pop-up food in Ardfern

Permanent and visiting customers at Ardfern will be able to take advantage of a new ‘pop-up’ kitchen that will be coming to the yacht centre on some Friday evenings this summer. 
With the old Crafty Kitchen café in the village having now been demolished and a new building shortly to be under construction for the all-new ‘Craignish Cabin’, which is set to start trading in spring 2020, it is hoped the ‘pop up’ will help bridge the gap left by the temporary closure of the facility during 2019.
New operator and chef, Lucy Gladstone aims to serve fresh home-made local produce at the new restaurant, and will use the ‘pop-up’ to provide customers with a taster of what is to come at the ‘Craignish Cabin’.
“I will be cooking up the likes of pots of mussels with home-made sourdough bread, venison stew or seafood paella’s when we do the pop-up at the Yacht Centre this summer,” says Lucy, adding that she will focus on just one dish each evening.
The first ‘pop-up’ kitchen will be set up in front of the chandlery building on Friday 14th June with food available between 6pm and 8pm, and the one-pot dishes costing around £9.50/dish.
We look forward to welcoming Lucy to the Yacht Centre this summer to provide customers with some tasty hot food on some of the busy Friday evenings we see during the main season, and for the first event we will be providing a couple of glasses of wine each for AYC customers who have pre-booked meals beforehand.
The second ‘pop-up’ food event will take place on Friday 28th June, followed by events on Friday 12th July, Friday 9th August and Friday 23rd August. 

To pre-book meals please email up to two days before each event or speak to Bel in the accounts office to book a place.


In addition to the ‘pop-up’ at the Yacht Centre the ladies at the village shop will be setting up a ‘Car Park Café’ in the village shop car park on various dates through the season. The first of these evenings is set to take place on Saturday 25th May from 7.30pm, with ‘all you can eat’ pizza, salads and pudding priced at £15/head for adults and £7.50/head for children. Soft drinks will be available for sale on the night and customers are also welcome to BYO beer or wine.
Please contact the shop on 01852 500298 to make a booking or for further information on dietary needs etc and please note that payment on the evening is cash only.
