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

Attracted by the good deals and just wanting a drink and snack, we were shown to ours seats straight away. After 10 mins we thought maybe you had to order at the bar; the barman said no, someone would be with us soon. After 20 mins nobody had shown any interest. Just as we were about to walk out, a...

The food arrived I asked for mixed grill with no egg (allergic) & no mushroom & the steak medium. When the girl brought the food I... More

Popped in one lunchtime while at the Steampunk "Splendid Day Out". Not too busy considering the time of day - ordered 2 meal deals from a fairly typical pub/diner menu, then sat back and waited...and waited....and waited... Food eventually arrived, OK, but portion sizes were pretty meagre. As for the desserts ordered with the meals......we waited...and waited...eventually to be told... More
