“Cosy and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

This hotel on the main street has a great menu on offer with lots to choose from. Caters for vegetarians and pudding lovers as well as meat/fish eaters. The staff are very attentive but not overly. A real fire welcomes you which on a chilly day is fantastic. A few fish in a tank also greet you but this looks in need of a bit of TLC. It's a compact eating area so a good idea to book, although they do have extra seating available. Certainly a place worth a try.

“A nice place for a quick bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

We broke a long drive back to Scotland with a lunch time stop in Biggar and had lunch here. I had the Cullen Skink which is a favourite of mine and we also had an open sandwich which were both delicious.
The 80 Shilling and guest ale were also excellent and the price was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend this place and would come back for a pub lunch some time.
