If you are expecting to sit inside a restaurant forget it. There is none.
The magnificent Hotel itself of course is world class, but you won't experience any of it if you come to eat. Even the hotel residents don't eat here. Don't be misled by the name.
If you like to be overlooked by busy commuters texting on their phone as you see trains pull out and sit out on the platform tarmac, this is the place for you. Alternatively you can sit inside in the bar area with high ceilings, rubbing shoulders with travellers and local workers and lots of noise but not a knife or fork in site, you have to ask, it's more of a ‘pub lunch’ arrangement.
I wanted a quiet dinner for two. Upon questioning, I was told that fine dining was available at a separately owned restaurant within the hotel – Gilbert Scott's. They booked a table for me there and that gets a 5* rating from me and my wholehearted recommendation for service, wine and food. Had a wonderful evening.
As for The Platform, it really is. Fine if you want a coffee or fine sandwich before your train.
