Since we visited this excellent pub it has undergone a really substantial and beneficial interior refit. As a consequence it's much busier but even at 1pm on a fine Saturday afternoon our meals arrived as we were just finishing our first pints of Old Speckled Hen and Old Golden Hen ales. I opted for the Balmoral chicken, a delicious meal... More

new décor a big improvement. Cleaner,brighter. Nasty toilets gone, that's a big plus.Fast pleasant table service for food and drinks. Only downside ---dogs not kept under control-----.A bit offputting when out to eat.

The recently refurbished Crown Inn, Biggar is an absolute must when in the area. The extensive menu will have something for everyone (including coeliacs which is fantastic) We sat by the fire on a cold December evening & enjoyed a 1st class menu. All staff were very welcoming & pleasant. Keep up the good work 👍🏻

We ate at the Crown on a busy Friday evening, the service was good and food quality was very good, we really enjoyed our evening out and will hopefully be returning.

Been a regular diner here since I moved to the area two years ago. It has never disappointed. But now after the refurb, wow, it is even better than before. Food is still excellent, friendly staff, but feels so much more open, but still has the cosy country pub feel. If you are local, go there.If you live far away,... More

The Crown Inn has had a recent renovation and I was concerned that they might have destroyed the unique atmosphere the place had. I needn't have worried. They have made a splendid job of opening the place up - making it lighter and brighter whilst still retaining the unique atmosphere. Lunch was very nice - good choice on the menu... More

Just been to The Crown for dinner since it re-opened after it's refurbishment and it was fantastic. The place looks amazing when walking in and still has the warmth, ambiance and character that it's always had and the food was fabulous. The menu is full of choice and caters for a wide variety of tastebuds. Would highly recommend the Smoked... More
