50% off at Platform Tavern

It is important that the tastecard scheme works for everyone involved; both the end-user members and the participating restaurants. As such, we encourage our members to drink ‘paid for drinks’ with their meal, and not just to order tap water. This encouragement reflects the idea that the scheme work for everyone – our members and our restaurants – and therefore everyone wins. If eating out becomes more affordable then people will do so more often – increasing footfall for the restaurants – and if the restaurants sell drinks to our members as well as the discounted food, then they are still able to make a profit on our diners.

The Platform Tavern is a unique and tasteful sanctuary in the heart of the historic dockland of Southampton. It boasts a style that has been individually created by Stewart, the proprietor, over the last few years.

The venue encompasses a warm and friendly atmosphere, with much to offer to all visitors to Southampton from home and abroad who are looking for something genuine.

The Platform Tavern has been providing traditional and continental home-cooked food for several years and with newly refurbished kitchens, now offers a new and even more varied menu.

The Platform has deservedly won the reputation as the best, most intimate live-music pub in Southampton. With an emphasis on Blues, there is regular Live Music every week, featuring top local musicians as well as touring artists from around the world.

The Platform Tavern is a historic and interesting Southampton pub in the medieval walls. The venue provides great food and music, a fabulous atmosphere and a convivial, individual style.

The Platform Tavern is also featured in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide.

  • "We had a very enjoyable lunch here.  The team in the pub did a good job of looking after us and the menu was pretty varied so everyone found something they liked. Judging by the blackboard menu they do some interesting specials especially fresh fish. We will definitely be coming here again. Peter   "
