The Elphinstone Hotel is a traditional and charming Coaching Inn situated in the centre of Biggar. 'The Elph' has a long and illustrious history that goes back over 400 years. The owners Robert and Janette Allen along with their son Michael have been at the heart of the business for almost twenty five years and offer a warm and friendly welcome to all visitors and locals alike.

The family pride themselves on the continued patronage of a busy local trade with a high level of repeat custom which clearly tells its own story. We now have eleven bedrooms three family (two have king size beds with bunk beds and one with a single and a pull out bed) four double three twin and one single. A five bedroom extension was completed in 2009 and all the original rooms were completely redecorated in the summer of 2010.

We currently hold a two star rating but anticipate three stars after our next review following our extensive expenditure and upgrade programme. The menu is wide and varied with every effort made to source and utilise the best in fresh local produce. Take your pick from two dozen starters and more than twice as many main courses.
