About
Hello and welcome to Platform 3. We may not be the biggest pub in Linlithgow, but what we lack in size we make up in character and service. In recognition of this, we have been consistently awarded a Gold Best Bar None Award and in 2013 we were awarded Community Pub of the Year and Best Bar Person of the Year by the Scottish Licencing Trade News (SLTN Awards). Last year, in 2015, we were again one of the finalist in the Community Pub of the Year category and our Manager won her very own Unsung Hero Award. Platform 3 offers its customers a relaxed environment in which to enjoy a varied selection of draught and bottled beers, real ales, wines and spirits. We hope to see you in the pub sometime soon.

Me and my other half visited linlithgow for a wedding so made the most of doing a pub crawl. Platform 3 was by far our favourite. We felt the most comfortable here and Tracey behind the bar was a big factor in this. She was so welcoming and lovely to speak to. All the locals were great too and had great banter. Would highly recommended here if you enjoy a good drink and good chat.

12 of us started our tour of Linlithgow here. We were late because of delayed train services from Glasgow but the staff had no problem with that.
Service was outstanding and the beer was good too. Well done Cara and Tracy.

Nice friendly, safe visit!
Popped in for a drink after a day out. We were made to feel very welcome, including our dog!
Very happy with safeguards in place for COVID, which were all duly observed and carried out.
First time we’ve visited a pub since lockdown and were most reassured that staff were doing everything they could to make it an enjoyable experience.
Thank you 😊

Excellent little bar with good friendly service , not big but cosy and good advice about beers on offer however only 3 real ales on offer all Scottish , I like to see something from England where the beer is in my opinion excellent. I am Scottish so no bias.
It was lunch time and the bar had 3/4 customers and I got served straight away , on asking if I could pay by debit card the reply was yes but had a minimum £5 spend so I had to buy 2 pints when only wanted one as I don't carry cash nowadays. many other hostileries don't have this restriction.
Will be back but will try to remember to bring cash

This is an excellent little pub with great beer, good unobtrusive background music (if you must have it), and friendly staff and fellow patrons.

I managed to drink in nearly all of Linlithgow's pubs during my stay, and this was head and shoulders above any of the others.

It has lots of signs saying cash only but when you try and pay with a £50 Scottish note they refuse.
The regulars then claim signs on door to say they don’t accept £50 which is not true we checked when we left after returning our drinks. A £23 round that can’t be paid for with cash unless you have small notes.
Rude locals and in competent staff.
Avoid at all costs went to star and garter next door, took my £50 note no questions and would also accept payment by card. Locals also seemed brighter and more fun.

Platform 3 is authentic Scottish pub as you will find. It has a great atmosphere; busy but not claustrophobic. Plenty of interesting beers and ales on tap and friendly staff and customers.

Great location if you fancy a pint or two before you get the train home.
