Had lunch at The Crown- Battered Haddock and chips and a Coronation Chicken wrap with salad. Tasty food.The service was incredible, prices were average for the area. Nice old pub with a friendly atmosphere - recommend a visit if you are in Biggar

I always stop here on the road North and South. Well run traditional pub, spotlessly clean, friendly staff and very pleasant owner. Typical pub lurch with specials, good value very good portions, highly recommended. Popular with locals and tourists, good parking.

I don't believe they do rooms no. I would either recommend the Cornhill House Hotel or Tinto Hotel for around the area.
