What a fantastic venue the ambiance is superb. Congratulations to those involved in refurbishing the property and capturing its history. Preston needs more of this type of establishment. I will definitely come back and recommend to others

Really enjoyed our evening. The food was tasty, a good selection of veggies as well as fish and meat dishes. Service was excellent. The only thing we would do differently next time is to follow the recommendation to order more dishes at the beginning rather than halfway through the meal.

Will definitely come back to try more of the great menu, the only negative was a bit too much oil in the balsamic bread board.

Great restaurant, the food was exceptional, the atmosphere was great and the service was attentive but quite relaxed. We shared five dishes between two of us and they were all excellent, the hardest part was choosing what to have as everything sounded so good. The steak was particularly good. We have the brownie for dessert, the portion size was huge, easily enough for two people. A great find in Preston, will definitely go back again.

I was wary about eating upstairs, as it seems a cool and a bit spacey atmosphere, but it was full and busy on Friday evening so it was fine. Downstairs is so warm feelong and interesting. Though upstairs is interesting too! The service was impeccable throughout, well done.

First visit to the Plau and couldn't fault it. Great service from knowledgeable staff and the food and cask ale were excellent. Definitely one for a return visit.

First visit at lunch time - food to the same standard as that served in the evening in the dining room albeit menu smaller. Staff knowledgeable and friendly.

Absolutely wonderful food, top service and wonderful ambience. Preston has needed somewhere like this for years. Drinks in the bar expensive but the dining experience was brilliant. Coming back for my birthday!

On Saturday I visited PLAU with my daughter and we both agreed it was a great dining experience, really enjoyed the unusual choice offered on the menu which was so different and enjoyable. I am visiting with my friend for lunch on Monday, the 4th of March.
