Newly refurbished and reopened only 2 days ago. Characterful pub with Carvery on Sundays and good supporting menu. The veggies amongst us found something. Good selection of proper beers.

I went for a Sunday carvery with my wife and nan. We hadn't booked ahead and it was very busy inside but we still managed to get a table straight away. The inside is very cosy and has a really nice calm chilled feeling to it. The food was lovely. There was plenty of meat which was cooked to perfection... More

We took friends there for lunch as we had eaten there a few months ago and found the food and atmosphere very good. This time all four of us had a different dish from the menu and all were large portions and really tasty. I had steak pie and I've never seen so much meat in a pie! On both... More

Never having visited Biggar before, we relied on recommendations to chose where to eat. The Crown provided excellent, well cooked and presented meals from an extensive menu. The pies deserve particular mention, especially the square steak pie. The curry was full of flavours and the hunters chicken was succulent. The staff were friendly and welcoming and happily offered suggestions and... More

My husband and I stopped en route from Chester to Edinburgh to stretch our legs and have a drink at the Crown Inn in Biggar. There was a real warm atmosphere as soon as we walked in and the staff were very friendly. In fact at the back of the pub were about 50 people having a gin tasting session.... More

Friendly staff, cozy surroundings and good fare. Pets are made welcome too. We arrived just after a large party had ordered and had to wait over half an hour for order but staff couldnt have been more apologetic and friendly. My wife was given a free drink for our wait. But the wait was worth it. Have visited many times... More

After fantastic recommendations from previous visitors on Trip Advisor we ventured from our country hotel for a quiet night out and a much anticipated quality meal. We were greeted by friendly service staff, and led to a table next to the bar. Extensive Menu with reasonable country Pub prices - Ordered for Starters Ham and Lentil Soup, Peppers stuffed with...
