The menu offers a diverse choice of excellent dishes prepared by undoubtedly talented chefs. The service is very good without being obtrusive. The only problem is the prices are high for relatively small portions - a deterrent to frequent visits

just spent a very pleasant lunchtime in Plato's restaurant for the first time and what an experience, the choice is very varied, but so much that the microwave is in full use. I decided, after great deliberation to go for the meat platter and my wife chose the seafood platter, both dishes were a mixture of hot and cold food( not as odd as it seems ) two very thick slices of quite rare beef two half's of both home made pork pie and home made scotch eggs, the yolks of which were just perfect not hard boiled in most cases, fresh local bread and salad and to top it all a very large portion of a truly tasty chorizo sausage cooked with onions absolutely delicious.
the seafood platter was of equal quality with smoked salmon, Morecambe bay shrimps a large plancha cooked prawn and a fish cake, again with local bread and salad this was our first ever visit to this restaurant but it certainly will not be the last, try it and be very pleasantly surprised

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic two course meal in the restaurant: scallops with pork and lamb with rhubarb followed by medium rare steaks. The quality of food and service are well worth the prices. I would definitely recommend to couples and friends alike.

I did not have a starter but my partner had a cheese soufflé with ceasar salad and it was fabulous. I will definitely be going back for one of my own. So different in presentation and it tasted wonderful. Every course was just as good. The polenta was fabulous and I was given a taste of the sauce beforehand as I do not like overpowering vanilla. It wasn't and it was extremely flavourful. Dave's steak was tender and cooked perfectly. A really talented chef.

All the positive reviews are correct, we were very impressed. Went for tapas and how delightful the food was, great choices to please everyone reasonsble prices for the quality of products used. The restaurant was busy , but the staff were very efficient and helpful. The bigest surprise was the puddings, Sticky toffee pudding to die for. Platos was extremely busy and the atmosphere was one of joy and laughter. I will be returning but not for Tapas, but to sample the other lovely dishes on the menu .
