user reviews of the Volunteer Arms, Uphall

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

What a place, full of drunken pishy women where men can easily obtain their services!! Beer not too bad but fat women spoil the atmosphere. Won't be back.

A great friendly pub with great beer and good staff.

Having acquired the land in 1884, the present Ale House was opened in 1895 by William Paterson, a wine & spirit merchant from Dunfermline.
The Uphall company of the 1st Battalion Linlithowshire Volunteers was formed on 18th March 1872. William Paterson was a member. In 1908 the Territorial Army replaced the Volunteer Force and in that same year Paterson renamed his ale house the Volunteer Arms.
With all the above history, The Volunteer Arms has recently been refurbished to reflect some of its past glories. The original timer lined ceiling from the front room has been exposed as well as the fine Oregan Pine wall linings. Two distinct areas have been created with the lounge and games area. The lounge benefits from a magnificent Royal Stewart carpet to set off a relaxing and warm seated area. The reason for the carpet is the link to the volunteers. Royal Stewart is the tartan of the Royal Scots which was the affiliation of the Linlithgowshire Volunteers.
With a fine selection of wines, lagers, ales and stouts a well as a large range of malt whiskies, the new owners, Anne & Ian Gibson and manager,Carol, hope to see you in the refurbished Volunteer Arms sometime very soon.
