Platform One Café is Pulling into Downham Station

Taking over from the former Railway Arms, the new Platform One will open on 20th February.

Jason Sutton, also the owner of Charmed Interiors, will be fuelling commuters and travellers with food and drinks in this new café.

Departing from its pub past, this coffee shop will offer free Wifi, charging points for gadgets, and a TV showing the latest news.

According to the EDP, when local MP Liz Truss visited she noted that once Platform One is open she had no excuse not to use her reusable coffee cup as she travels between her constituency home and Westminster.

New website coming soon
