I'm fairly new to strength training and have come back into weights training after a long time off due to a rib injury. I have been looking over Rippitoe's and Bill Starr's routines but I was wondering if there were any other tried and tested routines that were more suited to someone with less substantial legs which need less volume and consistency throughout the week. I want to keep an even balance on the muscles groups my legs are not my forte naturally unlike my upper body. Anyone want to share the torch of knowledge?

Your legs aren't your forte, yet you want to avoid squatting 3 times a week?

If you have less substantial legs then surely it'll be more advantageous for you to squat 3 times a week.

I'd suggest Wendlers 5-3-1 or Hepburn. But I'd say you'd get more out of both programs if you've done Rip or Starr's routines first.

What's your current weight and stats for the big 3 lifts?

If i were you i would keep it simple, choose a basic progressive overload type routine such as the ones you mentioned in OP.

Eat plenty, get as much rest as you can, train consistently increasing weight/reps on exercises each week = big gains.

There is no magic routine, it comes down to being consistent and training hard week in/week out.
