A Bite on the 'Platform'
'Platform' in London Bridge combines fresh food & a great venue
Location: 56-58 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2SZ
Description: 'Platform' has opened in London Bridge and combines fresh food, enthusiastic service and a great venue to form a welcome addition to the capital's bar/restaurant scene.
Indeed, Restaurateur Tony McKinlay and his Devon farmer friend, the aptly named Barnaby Butterfield, had an ambition to deliver tasty grub from gate to plate and they have fulfilled the dream.
Once a strip club, the two floor venue allows for a change in pace from one section to the other; the casual seating area in which to meet friends is conveniently located next to the long bar. The wooden staircase leads up to the more private dining area, with large glass windows, a view of the kitchen and a stunning reclaimed mirror ball hanging down from the arch above.
The menu alters everyday as it depends on what the farm has to offer. The meat is reared naturally and breeds are chosen for their flavour not their yield.
With an in house mixolologist it is little wonder that the hand-crafted organic and botanical cocktail list is so creative.
So where is it...Underneath London Bridge Station and just a few minutes walk from the London Dungeon and Borough market, it is surrounded by history and character.
