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
