About us

At The Elphinstone Hotel our dedicated team are committed to the ideals and values of customer service. We at all times take pride in ourselves and in our ability and desire to serve our customers well. We take responsibility for our own actions and in doing so we create a positive environment for our team that work here, and also, very importantly for our customers.

We always remember that our customers have a choice but we feel here an obligation to make this choice a difficult one. Our customers will return time after time convinced there is no other reasonable choice that can be made, because at The Elphinstone our customers always receive a warm, friendly welcome, are attentively looked after, and the quality of the food is of a consistently high standard

We know that The Elphinstone has been at the centre of the Burgh of Biggar for centuries and that it has a place in the hearts of many Biggaronians and visitors alike. We are only “Custodians of The Elph” for a short time but we will all leave it enhanced for us having spent time there, upholding the reputation and tradition for warmth in greeting, and excellence in service that have stood for more than 300 years.

Great wee hotel with fantastic food and basic but comfortable rooms. Stayed overnight and ate in the restaurant on a Sunday evening. The food was top notch with service to match. The rooms are about what you would expect from an independent hotel, basic but comfortable enough.

Fantastic place to eat. This was our second visit and we will definately be back. Food was delicious, service was excellent and great value for money too.

We have just celebrated our Golden Wedding meal with the family at the Elphinstone. Our large table was well appointed and carefully set. The serving staff coped admirably with the 11 adults and 2 children and all our varying requirements, including a peanut allergy. They could not have been more helpful. The menu offered a wide variety of choices at reasonable prices. The food was excellent. Well done Elphinstone for making our Golden Celebration very special.

Visited with Dutch friends for lunch. As weather nice we sat outside in the Beer Garden (which is actually upstairs once you get out). Food and drinks are ordered at the bar downstairs, and the food is brought to your table when ready. No complaints about the food - it was typical ‘pub fayre ‘ but was nice enough. We only had contact with 2 members of staff - unfortunately a very mixed experience - one being very positive, and the other very negative.
