I have been several times for a greek mesa, with a couple of friends. The first time , there were just two of us and there was so much food that we could not finish it. We learned and tried to cut back on the delicious pitta bread. Good food and wine, excellent service and fun, Happy to recommend it.

I have visited Sokrates many times. It is good fun with a large group. My daughter had her hen party there 10 years ago! My most recent visit was as a couple. The food was very good and the waitress excellent. We were shown to a table in a side room which I didn't like because it had no atmosphere... More

The best meze we have ever had. Dish after dish of exquisite food served by the nicest lady and, when it was busy, the chef himself. Really close to the Mercure Bolton hotel where we were staying. Can't recommend enough.

We visit here every couple of months. Last visit in December for my 40th Birthday. The service is always excellent. I have the meze on each visit, it is always excellent. On my birthday we had a party of 15, Each persons meal was excellent. All my family loved the food. They even accommodated all the balloons on the tables.... More

Visited here recently to have the meze dish. Firstly food was lovely. Variety of courses brought and all good quality and tasty. However portion sizes of each dish were very very small. Some courses not even a mouthful! To be fair at the end we were asked if we would like to try a dish (singular) again. However what we... More

I want to keep this revue simple - This is by far the best Greek Restaurant I have ever been to. Great for couples, small and large groups. Very attentive staff and family run. Food portions are medium to large and I have tried almost EVERYTHING on the menu. Cooked to a high standard and delicious. Complimentary lemonchello was welcomed.... More

First visit in eight years, can't believe we haven't been in so long, Christina the host was fabulous, she has a real rapport with the regular visitors and made us feel like we were one if them. We picked the meze, there was so much of it, brought out in stages, every dish was really tasty and Christina advised which... More

A group of ten came here for a meal. We went with the meze. The food was lovely. The customer service was on point. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Drinks were reasonably priced too. Atmosphere was vibrant. My only negative would have to be the price of the meze on a Saturday night. I feel that £18... More

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.
