Don't bother with the burger! 2 of us ordered a burger with our drink, I don't know what it was but it certainly wasn't beef in a bun and a lettuce leaf! a few tasteless chips and 2 onion rings! We ate the onion rings a few of the chips and 2 bites of the burger! The table was sticky... More

Just returned from christmas lunch at the platform. We are visiting the area to spend Christmas with family. From the moment we went in we were so impressed with the staff, who where so professional and pleasant throughout our visit. The meal was fabulous. Well done to all concerned. Would recommend this venue very highly. Many thanks.

My past four visits to this pub have all been terrible and I am not giving them another chance. Cold food that is badly cooked,untrained indifferent staff, long waiting times and never having all the menu available have combined to finally force me to go elsewhere.

This was our 3rd visit to The Platform ( having had a bad meal both previous times,we decided to give them another chance). The food,once again,was very limited, not that there is a big choice on the menu to start with. The portions and quality of the food was very poor to say the least, very poor choice on the... More

Not a good experience. Tables not cleaned away so not a lot of tables free. Food orders arrived with items missing, and on one order the food had been replaced with other items. When this was queried we were told we should have been informed, but we we weren't, and they weren't bothered. We had to chase down a staff... More

Once upon a time the trains arrived on Morecambe at this station, now its a multipurpose, stone flagged hall. Used for exhibitions, dances, music concerts and comedians offers very limited seating. The seating is not very comfortable for sitting a long time, there is a licenced bar with prices above average. If you want to see a particular artist then... More

A typical chain pub, we only stayed in the wacky warehouse part but could not wait to get out, filthy and unclean, poor lighting and staff that were clueless, believe it or not we waited one and a half hours for a childs meal when only one other table was taken in the kids play area, somebody had cancelled the...

went in for tea, only had one person taking food orders, and they were slow, and 2 out of the 4 items we wanted were not available. So had to go back and select something else, then had to queue another 15 minutes to order. Only brought out 2 out of the 4 meals ordered so we waited about 5... More

I have visited the Platform often to see very famous and up and coming acts. It is not expensive and should be supported
