Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Menu is seasonal and has lots to choose from. We had a party of 8 and all the food came together very fresh and hot. Large wine selection also. Staff are so attentive, and the premises are clean and have a lovely atmosphere

Visiting the area, before booking we checked in advance to make sure there's ease of access for those with mobility problems, and all was fine. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our table. We found all the staff to...be friendly, efficient, and attentive. We chose one special and one meal from the standard menu, and it was excellent quality. At each point the staff checked to ensure the meal was fine. I would happily book again when visiting the area.More

We ate here for the first time on Friday June 23rd. We were greeted with a smile from Anna, who then showed us to our requested window table. The menu was just perfect, & our food was exceptional. We had full 3 courses, Pate /goats...cheese tart, followed by chicken wrapped in parma ham stuffed with haggis, which was absolutely delicious, & my other half had the spinach ricotta tortelloni which was equally delicious. We were full as the portions were generous, however we managed to squeeze in desserts of chocolate turkish delight tart & mixed berry cheesecake, all washed down with a bottle of Chardonnay. We would highly recommend this beautiful restaurant as the food & service was exceptional. Thank you Anna & team for looking after us. Harry & John .More

Not to be missed - Amazing The ambiance of the restaurant is first class, the food is excellent and the staff so professional. We had the mushroom stroganoff, Lamb, and Feather blade beef. Absolutely outstanding. Don’t pass by the Barony without giving it a try....Well done to the team.More

Another good meal at the Barony. We went on steak night where I had a ribeye and my wife a sirloin. Cooked to perfection with great service and some of the superb IPA. A great little restaurant.

We’ve not been here for a while so really didn’t know what to expect. We had a lovely meal complemented by great service and really couldn’t fault it. It was steak night so we had 2 steaks cooked to perfection. A really nice experience and...we will definitely be back in the very near future.More

We had visited here for steak night in September last year and had a terrific meal. It was a family members birthday so we thought we would go back. Not sure if they have a new chef but very disappointing. None of the steaks were...cooked as ordered, we only sent two back as they were very rare . When they came back they had with the same fries which were now pretty cool . I’m in the trade and would always send fresh accommodations back with a meal. Meat was not good quality and tasteless, sauces very basic and bland . No server came to ask if everything was ok and this was not because the restaurant was busy as only another couple of tables in . We had to take the steaks back to the bar ourself ,not good customer service.Couldn’t fault the starters or desserts.More

Booked in for Christmas lunch, friendly staff, but lunch was disappointing, very basic Christmas main, roast potatoes were not roasted, small amount of veg, no parsnips, no kilted sausages, no mash. No tablecloths, which would have been a nice touch, we were upstairs with another...group of 6, no atmosphere. We were offered a cocktail & canapés on arrival, which we enjoyed, but still left disappointed.More

My wife’s cod didn’t taste right at all - definitely not fresh. There was only one other dish on the menu my wife could eat, which she didn’t want. No offer was made to make something else. We paid the bill and left. The person...who appeared to be in charge looked entirely unconcerned by the situation. On arrival, when asked if they did mocktails, she had told us that they were “not that sort of restaurant”, whatever that was supposed to mean. Waiting staff were very pleasant and professional - same can’t be said for the senior staff member we encountered. We used to visit regularly when in Biggar. Sadly we won’t be doing so again.More

The restaurant is based in the centre of Biggar where there is on-street parking available. It’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but otherwise serves lunch and dinner. We booked same day online from the restaurant’s website and found this a very straightforward process. The menu...online differed a bit from that on offer on the night. There is typically a choice of six starters, eight mains and five desserts. A current deal offers a 2 course lunch for £19.95 or a 3 course dinner for £28.95, which gives a modest saving on individual prices, although some dishes do have a supplement. Our booking was for early evening on a Saturday and the restaurant was fairly busy to start with and got busier as the evening progressed, including a private group booking upstairs, but maintained a pleasant ambiance throughout our visit. I was too busy looking at the menu to get much of a chance to view the wine list but the latter looked to have a decent choice. (We’ve had the house wine before and it has usually been good). In the distant past you could BYOB but this became less attractive by increasing corkage charges and may no longer exist as an option. In any case we selected a bottle of NZ Siegfried Old Coach Road Nelson Sauvignon Blanc (£26.95) which was very good. If being picky I would appreciate a nicer glass to put it in. We ordered up starters of Bacon, Black Pudding & Potato Salad, which is served warm with a wholegrain mustard dressing; and Haggis & Chicken Croquettes with a whisky & peppercorn sauce. For mains my wife requested the Hake in Parma Ham on a bed of crushed peas, served with potatoes and a butter sauce and I ordered the Rump of Lamb with rosemary & mint gravy, served with sautéed potatoes and a creamed leak, peas & bacon combination. The Bacon & Black Pudding starter is a favourite and remains so and I thought the croquettes were an interesting variation on the theme - neither the haggis or sauce were too peppery for my tastebuds. Both mains were nicely cooked and everything on the plates were full of flavour. To finish off we both chose the Toffee Apple Crumble Tart, one served with Baileys custard per the menu and one without the Baileys. I didn’t taste Baileys so I’m not sure if I got the right dish but in any case it was good. Coffees to follow. Toilets were well maintained as expected. Service was always polite and friendly, if a little rushed. I was still finishing my last chew of the mains dish as the plate was being taken away! It may be over enthusiasm to please but regardless we were still allocated our 90 minute slot per the booking. I don’t think we could have sat too much longer on the seats in any case which lack stuffing. If you are looking for very good food in nice surroundings at a reasonable price, The Barony is a good choice. Our overall bill was just under £95, split between food £61.90 (inc £4 supplement for lamb) and £32.95 for drinks.More

Recently moved to the area and The Barony was recommended by a number of friends. Visited tonight for an early meal and was very pleased with it all. The food, the service, value for money. A very clean and pleasant environment. We will return.
