This place is fantastic and I have already arranged to dine again the following week. Inside feels like u are in a family run greek taverna. The food is unique and plentiful we all opted for the greek mezze they keep coming with little tasters of the menu. I love restaurants like this, home cooking and very reasonably priced.

If you want a friendly, hospital personalised evening out, try the Meze here. The waitresses know the menu inside out, they will get to know what you like and advise you on what foods to eat together. With a variety of taste sensations you'll have a great night.

My family and I have been dining here for quite a few years but I've never actually reviewed it. It almost feels inappropriate to score a place which feels like visiting friends for dinner. On average we eat here once or twice a month. In fact it has become our family tradition to come here for Christmas Eve. We always... More

Our first visit for a family celebration and we had a superb evening. We chose the meze and everything served was both authentic and excellent. The service was both prompt and pleasant and whilst the taverna is not the biggest it is suitably rustic to suit the overall ambiance. We will certainly be back !

Sokrates Tavern on Winter Hey Lane in Horwich is a relaxed and friendly restaurant serving authentic Greek, Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. The dining room has a rustic and easy-going ambience. When the temperatures are high customers love to dine in the Greek village yard.
The focal point of the menu is the Greek Meze Banquet which offers an array of 15 or more dishes served to the middle of the table for people to share over an hour or so. It is a great way to eat with family or friends and enjoy a Feast of Flavours.
There is a full A' la Carte menu with dishes like the Greek Island Prawns, Mousaka and not to forget the Greek Souvlaki (skewers) and Lamb Koftas. Desserts like the delicious and very popular Greek Yoghurt cheesecake and home made Baklava.
Sokrates Taverna has an excellent selection of red, white and rose wines from Greece and Cyprus.
