Linlithgow restaurants occupy a historic town, situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh by the Union Canal. It's a town with close connections to the Stuart royal family of Scotland. James I built Linlithgow Palace in 1424 and both James V and Mary Queen of Scots were born here. Today Linlithgow is a handsome town and attracts visitors to explore the Palace, take a walk around Linlithgow Loch and visit the nearby engineering wonder of the Falkirk Wheel and the stunning sculpture of the Kelpies. Have a look at our selection of Linlithgow restaurants and book yourself up for a right royal treat.
With such a long and glorious history, it's no wonder restaurants in the Linlithgow area feature some classic Scottish cooking. Look out for fresh Scottish seafood in dishes such as spoots (razor clams), mussels in white wine, smoked salmon, Orkney crab and West Coast lobster and langoustine. Aberdeen Angus beef makes fantastic steaks, while creative chefs do wonders with the famous haggis. Finish with a delicious cranachan and don't forget to indulge in an aged malt whisky to round off a fabulous meal.
The locals may love their Scottish delicacies but there's no doubt that they enjoy a good curry, too. Thankfully, there are a number of really good Indian restaurants in Linlithgow to cater for those curry cravings. Take The Ashmaan, for example. Their special dish of chicken tikka, lamb tikka, prawns & green chillies is a curry lover's dream, combining succulent meat and juicy prawns with bold spicing. Over at Dehli's Winter, meanwhile, it never gets cold. Dishes such as an authentic dilli de chicken curry flavoured with cloves, cinnamon and coriander seeds keep it wonderfully hot instead.
