what our visitors say


Delicious food and exceptional service. Very well set out to accommodate social distancing, with specific areas you get to yourself that are physically separated. Always good fun, and will be back!

We came for bottomless on their reopening this august and the whole place was spotless. Felt very at ease with their COVID measurements and the staff were more than amazing!

Maddie

Neeraj Sachdeva

Really fun experience. The staff went above and beyond to make sure were comfortable with controls and games. Would definitely comeback!

Jessica


Everyone at Platform were exceptional, the gaming was so much fun and loads to choose from, it didn't matter if you were a beginner or a pro. The pizzas were so good and the service couldn't be faulted.

Teen Unite


My sister booked a bottomless brunch here for her birthday on Sunday and it was amazing. The concept is great there was a group of 8 of us and we were all able to play. Great selection of games. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only flaw was that the pizza bases were too salty. We did feed this back to them and they offered to change our pizza's.

FAQs

How does Platform / the place work?

 

Platform is a new kind of gaming bar and restaurant. Come on down to our venue right by old street and we’ll prepare a spot for you and your pals. Due to demand we do advise pre-booking, but our team will always do their best to accommodate.  

Can I come down just to drink or eat?

 

Of course. Due to our venue being heavily booked for experiences, we do advise booking in for food and drinks, but if you’re gazing lovingly through the window, our team will always do their best to find you a space

Multiplayer experiences (inc Bottomless Brunch & cocktails & controllers) are all priced by package for 90 minutes. Prices vary from peak and off peak hours

When should we arrive?

We advise that you arrive no more than 10  minutes before your pre-booked time due waiting times and capacity.

We are operating on limited tables to ensure we can adhere to safe social distance guidelines. 

 

What is the age limit? Are children allowed?

How do I order Drinks?

Can we stay for drinks after our booking?


Yes we have tables in our bar area that are socially distanced. Please let your host know if you intend to stay so that they can prepare a table for you if one is available. We advise that you email ahead and book to avoid disappointment on the day. 

 

If I don’t want to game can I just sit with my friends?

 

All those in the multiplayer booths must pay per the zone. Think of it like bowling.

The best way to spend your birthday, company team building event, or just a casual Thursday evening with your pals is at Platform! We cater to all groups with a dedicated Gaming Compere and have food and drink packages available. To avoid the hassle of that one person who mysteriously hasn’t paid their share! Platform Party is our best package for groups at £45pp for 90 minutes of gaming, 2 courses, and 3 drinks / cocktails  each!
