Impossible to fault. Best food/drink establishment in Preston by a distance.

Fabulous food and service. It's a shame the Tapas is no longer available at lunch time but that wouldn't stop me going.

Staff were excellent but perhaps understaffed as service was slower than would be expected

Amazing. Loved it. Finally something decent in Preston. One small comment...your espresso martinis are far too sweet! Other than that perfect.

My 6th visit to Plau having been a few times for breakfast and now twice for dinner. Always busy ( probably because it’s so good!) food great , lots of veggie/pescatarian choices for me friendly staff. Matthew upstairs and very nice girl in the tiny upstairs bar pulled a blinder as they were obv understaffed ( someone was ill) but they worked incredibly hard to keep the a full house happy. All the food my party had was delicious especially the seafood makhani/veg byriani/beer bread. Highly recommend.

Our favourite new place to drink and eat in Preston. Staff took the time to show us around the beautiful building. Cant wait to come back and eat in the Dining Room. Can 100% recommend Brunch too :)

This was our first visit to Plau and we had a lovely lunchtime meal. The food was delicious and was very reasonably priced. All the staff were friendly and relaxed ... and not intrusive. We were there as a last minute idea for a family treat/celebration ... even though it was midweek. Plau had been mentioned to us by various friends in Preston but we'd not managed to sort out a visit before now. There was a lovely and thoughtful surprise, on arrival, of a complementary Bellini ... as it was our daughter's 21st. We'll be back with friends in a couple of weeks ... and, then, I might remember to ask to see the well too! Thanks for a lovely time.

Beautiful environment, food nice but could just do with a little oomph, bread a little burnt, patatas braves could be a little crisper (to avoid soggyness), chips were pretty atrocious but decent portions well thought out flavour combinations :)

The gin selection was fantastic and most of the dishes were really tasty, especially the steak, pork belly and prawns but the potatas bravas were very overcooked and our table could have been better, a little dark but it is a small place. Service was excellent!
