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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic small and quirky bar with a big heart. Clean, no odours! The bar staff are great as it the beer, gin and whisky. Our dog was also made to feel very welcome too! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and return!

Still the best bar in Linlithgow, great beer, great service and a great atmosphere. Had 2 great nights in there when we were staying in the town. Couldn’t fault it.

Called in for a few drinks and thoroughly enjoyed it. A great atmosphere, friendly staff and they don’t rob you ! This is my favourite watering hole when I visit Linlithgow. I’ve never been disappointed.

Barmaids were awful! There was clearly a mix up with a gin and tonic and we were made to feel like we had stolen a £6.50 drink.
After we had all had a touch of the glass to pass it from one side of the bar to the other and the glass had been drank from the barmaid insisted on removing the drink from us 'to establish who hadnt paid for it' really!!
Wouldnt have been surprised if she was going to give it to someone else.

It’s been a wee while since we were here but had a return visit last Friday night, a great wee pub with some fabulous real ales, good selection of whisky and a fantastic atmosphere. The staff can’t do enough. Def the best bar in Linlithgow by a country mile.

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.
