The Platform

The Platform Bar & Bistro is the newest addition to The Franschhoek Cellar space. Originally the old Franschhoek Train platform, this space has been converted into a cosy bistro on one side, serving a selection of tapas and flatbreads that will change with the seasons, and on the other side a Brampton Bar with artisanal beer garden outside of this. It’s the perfect spot to unwind, with panoramic views of the vineyards and mountains around it. A great spot for private functions, please enquire with the staff.
