This is our local lounge/pub and go quite regularly. Staff are always polite and friendly. Food of fantastic quality with typical country cuisine (done very well!) but there are always a few more exotic choices to choose from on the menu which is good to see. My fiance and I tend to go for the Thursday Steak Night, but we... More

As a travel writer & author, I have travelled far & wide but I can honestly say that I have never had a more satisfying stay than at the Elphinstone Hotel, Biggar! Having been unceremoniously turned away from another nearby establishment, no doubt on account of my muddy, dishevelled state after 7 hours in the saddle, having traversed 2 mountain... More

We had been walking nearby and booked a night here hoping to walk the next day too. Had been told by booking site that we would get a room with no window, but they had obviously not been booked up, so we had room 6. On the small side, but quite adequate with a bath to soak away the aches... More

Enjoyed a meal and a beer (+ too many whiskies!) with a group of friends. Food was fantastic. Best steak pie I've ever had, and the haggis ball starter I had earlier pinched from my mate was excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only gripe we had was they don't serve Best! I mean come on! You can get... More

The hotel is in Biggar High Street which is a lovely little town and very convenient for Edinburgh. I use the hotel regularly. Great friendly staff who are always helpful. The restaurant serves great food and good value prices.

This hotel is a historic hotel and has been owned by Robert and Janette for the last 25 years. You can be sure of a warm welcome, an extensive menu and reasonably priced food. The public bar has been modernised this year and is lovely. Visit during the colder days and enjoy a drink around the open log fire.

Love going to the Elph, food is really good as is the service, could stay there all afternoon by the fire if my kids would let me. The manager and the staff are fab and attentive. Great any day of the week but can imagine being there on a cold day by the fire with a nice bottle of wine... More
