Popular South Lanarkshire Sunday Roast Spot

New Year’s Day fell on a Sunday this year so on the menu at The Crown Inn was a carvery as well as the regular menu. It would have been rude not to, so some lamb and ham were ordered.

The menu at The Crown Inn, Biggar

What we ate

There was a choice of beef, lamb, pork or ham, or indeed a slice of each. We stuck with one type of meat each going for the ham and lamb.

The meat, for both of us, was moist – no need for the usual ladles of gravy, just enough gravy was given—a good amount of meat for a carvery, with well-cooked vegetables and fluffy Yorkies. The only downside was the stuffing which was more sausage-like than stuffing.

Of course, Mark can’t see past a dessert menu! Toffee Apple and Biscoff Crumble served with custard. Lots of apple and crumble pieces and lashings of custard provided in a separate jug. I picked tablet ice cream and strawberry ice cream in a waffle basket from a local supplier (the strawberry ice cream was delicious)
