About PLAU Gin & Beer House
Gin & Beer House a building that dates back to 1668 and a forgotten Medieval Well with 18th Century distillery and secret vaulted cellar rooms. Join us in this historic pub, closed for over 100 years. We serve Brunch, Lunch & Dinner, including a wide range of Vegetarian & Vegan options.
I had read lots of reviews raving about the atmosphere but this is about the main pub, when you dine at night it’s in the dining room upstairs which has a different feel. I will return to eat brunch (which was amazing)but not dinner because of this.
fantastic place, everything you always want but rarely find - delicious food, wonderful service & great value
Great range of meals and drinks - both delicious. Excellent service- staff very helpful and friendly. Have recommended to family and friends.
I booked a table for my husband’s birthday. We like Plau gin bar after already visiting. This was the first time sitting in the dining room. We had a lovely evening, food was fantastic, service was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I would certainly recommend Plau.
Fantastic place & food
it was a lovely evening and everything about the place was great will be recommending to family and friends.
The spicy chips were dry and my friend left them uneaten. Her coffee was cold( refunded)her white bait and leeks were fine I was disappointed in the Patatus dish . The leeks and lentils were lovely. I would come again and try some different foods. The menu was interesting.
Excellent customer service. Friendly and informative.
Excellent food - really enjoyed every dish we ordered, will be back to try some of the others. Dining room service was professional, attentive, efficient & friendly. Lots better than when I visited when you first opened. Which I am really pleased about as that time the Sunday Feast was delicious & the dining room a nice space. Bar is lovely - great atmosphere- cocktails could be better value. Thank you to the lovely bar tender (blonde lady) who went over & above with service by bringing the cocktails to our table instead of us waiting at the bar for them. It’s great that Preston finally has a wonderful establishment for a decent night out! Congratulations to all concerned!
Service in itself excellent. However the food took 50 mins to arrive. This was fine apart from 2 hungry teenagers with us
Fantastic Breakfast , great staff, will call again soon,
I booked for 6 of the Family for Sunday Feast Very disappointed ☹️ The food was cold we sent it back only for it to be returned not much warmer I did not eat mine as it tasted greasy and the gravy /sauce was like a pot of salt ,,,,,,, 🧂 Don’t think I will return for Food Loved the Bar and the building though
Food was very good. Really enjoyed the bream & belly pork - cooked to perfection! Limited selection of wines & when we asked to try one in the cellar bar was told ‘no’. Also very noisy in there. However, service in the dining room was good. Building / decor is stunning & unexpected from outside. Areas of improvement- bar staff / service in the cellar & ambience in there.
Excellent meal and service. Would highly recommend
We had a lovely experience at the plau and will definitely be returning!
We had a brilliant night, very accommodating with food, will defo be returning
Very pricey for the meals. The sauce given separately was far too salty. Luckily it was in individual jugs. Great service and friendly and polite. Food was good but not great. Yorkshire pudding was very good though. Nice atmosphere though and plenty of food.
GreT food and drink will be coming back..
Once again the plau smashed it!! brilliant ale.. brilliant gins...and even better food!!back soon.,tks!!
Fantastic food and fantastic service.
Good food and diverse menu - unfortunately, staff seemed stretched out and we had to wait for some time for both plates to be cleared and to pay up upon leaving.
Delicious food and great atmosphere.
Food was amazing, beautiful restaurant, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend
Great night out, as usual. Love the house beer!
We've been for drinks before but this is the first time we've dined. The food was excellent and we received great service all evening - friendly and efficient! We'll definitely be back.
