Centrally located in the town with parking in the street or nearby. Smart looking place however it has a relaxed atmosphere and you’ll be welcomed whether you’ve dressed up for an occasion or are just casual. Best to book at weekends when it can be busy.

The menu gets changed fairly often and even on our most recent visit a few of the listed items had been changed on the day although there are a few popular dishes which remain constant. There is usually around six to eight choices of each course and an offer of two courses for £15.95 or three for £21.95 with the occasional supplement.

There is now a room above the restaurant for private functions.

We were in recently to mark the occasion of our Anniversary although we don't usually need any excuse! For starters my wife had a Parcel of Haggis, neeps and tatties (served in pastry) with the whisky sauce on the side by request whilst I opted for Panko Breaded Goats Cheese. For mains I had Salmon with prawns, green beans and potatoes and my wife had Pork with honey & mustard sauce accompanied by kale, cabbage & bacon and spring onion mashed potatoes. So far, so good - all the food was nicely cooked, well presented and flavoursome. To finish we had a Sticky Ginger Pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla icecream and a Pear & Bramble Crumble served with custard - both very good.

By the time we’d added a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and a couple of coffees our bill was just under £66.

Service was pleasant as usual and although the atmosphere was good at the earlier stage of the meal we were unexpectedly last to leave by 9.30pm (beyond the advertised hours) so possibly best to dine early.

Made the most of the upstairs space at The Barony with a family celebration. Staff very attentive but also enabled us to have time as a family in a relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant. All food excellent quality and served piping hot - even although there were 25 of us. Great choice of dishes for our menu - food to suit all members of our group. Thank you so much to Scott and staff for a fabulous afternoon !

I was invited to The Barony for a friends 60th Birthday celebration meal. Food was delicious, cooked well and presented beautifully. Service was warm, friendly and attentive. Facilities were immaculate and tasteful. Had a lovely evening and will now be adding the Barony to my new ‘favourite places to go’ list. Thanks for a lovely evening Barony!!

The Barony continues to deliver excellent food with unobtrusive but careful service, in an ambience which adds significantly to enjoyment of the meal. How fortunate we are to live within walking distance of this gem!

Tucked away in the village of Biggar this is a wee gem of a restaurant. Not too big and not too small it is well presented decor wise and well kept. Was there using 'birthday' vouchers and was delighted by the service and food quality. Firstly the young lady who served us today was super: happy smile, polite, cheerful and well presented. Looked after us great. We had the lamb shank and the pork both of which were cooked to perfection. All in all if you are looking to eat out in Biggar you would be hard pushed to better The Barony.
