About the Pub

Situated short distance west of Lithgae Cross the pub was known as the Footballers and Cricketers Arms until an extensive makeover in 2015 with the introduction of six Real Ale taps and it was renamed the Linlithgow Tap. The stained glass panels of footballer and cricketer at the front were replaced by clear glass windows although there is a remaining window depicting a footballer to the side. The only pub in the town to have an island bar, has a map of old Linlithgow on the ceiling. Snacks are available and there is music on Friday and Saturday nights. The pub has now reverted back to its original name.
