The Old Post Office, Linlithgow

In here with friends years ago as I am not a local. I was told it had improved recently so for an after 10pm drink we tried it out again. Belhaven house that has recently had a change of management. Locals think the standards have slipped since.

Our visits were pleasant but on both the evening and lunchtime visits service was slow and it was obvious the staff were not properly trained. Short pints being the perfect example especially pouring a pint of Strongbow. Head disappears in two seconds and you have an inch short of a pint.

Keg beers were well kept as were the wines. Food looked good and seemed very popular although we did not try any.

It has the Spoons problem of a very long walk to the upstairs toilet.

The Swan Tavern, Linlithgow

Back to Linlithgow to stay with an old friend for the first time in over 5 years.

This pub has hardly changed since my previous visits. No real ales but the keg stuff is pretty well kept. Staff and customers are friendly if you want company. Nice beer garden out the back but it was a little bit too cold to spend too much time out there. Be great on a warm summers day tho.

No food sold but if you just want a beer or a session you could do a lot worse than here.

Varying clientele. Young to old depending upon the day and the time of the day.

Will be back in 4 or 5 years.

The Football and Cricketers Arms, Linlithgow

Different name now and apparently up for sale again. So I'm told.
4 real ales on tap when I visited and the 2 I tried were well kept. Jarl being the best. I visited in the afternoon and it was quiet. Excluding my Linlithgow buddy and myself there were never more than 7 people in and we were there all afternoon.
Barmaid unfriendly and spent her time talking to locals so in the Scottish way, if you wanted to buy a beer you needed to shout for service.

Not recommended.
