I must admit one has never dined at the Spiggie Hotel, I thought it had closed down, as many times when stopping by the place it has been closed. While we are on the Spiggie Hotel, is there a reason why a Hotel (Spiggie) does not even offer tea or coffee throughout the day to passing trade? Just a thought.
The Hotel was closed from the mid/late 70's until at least well on to the 90's, the then owners were by then becoming elderly and found running it as a business something they couldn't really keep up with. However, as it was, as it had been for many years, also their home, they were unwilling to relocate, and instead chose to mothball the business parts of the building for their remaining years.
The building was put on the market when it became vacant during the 90's, and was completely refurbished and opened for trade by new owners. It was again sold a few years ago when those owners moved on, the current owners are a local lady and her husband. I've not been in for quite some time, but family and friends who have, all seemed pleased with both the food and the service, under both owners. Being relatively local dropping in for a cup of tea/coffee holds no interest, so I've really paid no attention to whether they offer that or not, but they may well do so, in the summer months at least. The current owners do have a website, so more information may possibly available on it.
It is possible that they have chosen to pass over attracting "cafe" trade though, due to the level of provision in that area elsewhere locally. There is (or at least, there was in the very recent past) a cafe in Bigton, and a cafe area attached to the local shop.
