Quinno _ left this review about Platform Bar

Neat little refreshment room/micropub on Platform 2 and easily accessible from the main station entrance. Opening in 2019 and it’s clearly a modern interior but a fair attempt at a bit of tradition - cream and blush red trim plus an antique till and the inevitable railway memorabilia on the walls. Note that the toilets are at the other end of the platform. Room for no more than 30 so a squeeze on a busy Saturday I’d imagine. A bit slouchy on the service front and a fairly flat atmosphere, what with a quiet room's ambience interrupted by a tinny local radio's output from the kitchen. Three cask over five with a cider also, sourced from small local breweries. My Muckle Tickle was fair, if a bit aged and just about got a GBG pass (NBSS 3). Probably didn’t see it at its best, but staff make the atmosphere in these kind of places when they’re quiet. 6.5

Real Ale Ray left this review about Platform Bar

A very handy one room bar which benefits some of the locals who pop in, train passengers, and also receives small groups of people visiting here as a destination pub/bar. Along with a choice of three ales and one cider on our visit, this bar also offers teas, coffees, homemade cakes, hot and cold sandwiches etc.
We too met a friendly lady working behind the bar, who made good conversation with a few of us. The beer line up was Twice Brewed Sycamore Gap, Twice Brewed Ale Caesar along with Firebrick Brewery Toon Broon.

Will Larter left this review about Platform Bar

A small room on the west-bound platform of Hexham railway station, and therefore handy for returning commuters on their way home from jobs in Newcastle. I had just time for a swift half before my train on the opposite platform, but it was long enough to be made very welcome by the woman behind the bar and to look around and appreciate the way this room has been made into a micropub. The floorboards here seem to be original, and there's a very nice stone fireplace, though unfortunately the fire itself is fake. The bar, seemingly a modern wood affair, has five hand pumps, with a cider and three real ales at the time of my mid-week visit. Two were from First & Last, the other being York Guzzler. I went for Red Rowan, which is a pleasant beer in the Irish red ale style, and was in very good condition
