"I have lived near Linlithgow for a number of years now but I had never ventured into Platform 3 before today. I will definitely be going again. A lovely little pub, reasonably priced and dog friendly. I took my two dogs in today and they were greeted with a large bowl of fresh water and they were each given a biscuit out of their own dog biscuit tin. My wife and I loved the atmosphere and our two dogs felt very at home as they curdled up to sleep after their biscuits..."

"Great Little Place"

"Great wee pub for a couple of drinks before getting the train. A large selection of gin including the locally distilled Linlithgow Gin which was very nice. Toilet spotlessly clean. Barman very friendly and helpful"

"Just great ..."

"Great atmosphere, great staff, fantastic selection of drinks this is a proper pub where you can enjoy a fantastic afternoon or evening"

"Will return"

Over 45 malts

If you are a whisky fan then you’ll be spoilt for choice at Platform 3. We are members of The Scotch Whisky Experience and have a vast array of Whisky’s and Malts with something to suit every whisky enthusiast.

With the owners of Platfrom 3 being whisky connoisseurs shall we say, our shelves are overflowing with blends and malts and we’re sure to find something to suit every other whisky enthusiast. However, if you have a particular favourite that’s not on our shelves, let us know and we’ll do our best to oblige for the next time you come and see us.

Please see our chalkboard next to the bar in Platform 3 for our current Malt of the Moment.

Fresh n' Tasty!

We have a varied selection of wines and spirits, along with draught and bottle beers. We also have a constantly changing selection of real ales and support the local economy by stocking locally produced ales.

Our approach to quality has earned us the Master Brewer Accreditation from Guinness.

We were the first pub in Linlithgow to be Cask Marque Accredited and have upheld this accreditation year on year since. We have also been Cask Marque accredited for 16 consecutive. In 2019 we were awarded Forth Valley CAMRAs Pub of the Year.

This year we gained our Beer Marque accreditation, we were the second pub in Scotland to do this, exactly one hour behind our sister pub Winstons.  

 For more info on what real ales you’ll see flowing through our pumps, turn to our real ales page.

Grab a Coffee

We are open from 10:30am (Mon-Sat) for the sale of tea and coffee. At lunchtime we have a selection of filled rolls from Taste Cafe and Deli.
If you’re having a party or group night out then ask at the bar for details of light snacks and sandwich provision.

We are members of the ‘Dugs Welcome’ forum, so our four legged friends are always encouraged to come in for a dog biscuit or two which are kept “on tap” (at no charge of course).
