We went in the last night before the second lockdown and even though they were incredibly short staffed and had to change the menu, the service and quality of the food and drink were both excellent. The table next to us were complaining about the menu having to change and the guy serving them remained so professional and helpful throughout.

As always the Plau was lovely, our waitress was lovely and very attentive. We hope the plau comes out the other side of the pandemic intact. It is the gem of Preston and we hope it is around for many years to come

Me and partner visited at the weekend, we haven’t had a date night in a long time. We walked home and spoke how lovely It all was, not just the food but the music, the interiors, the service. The environment/atmosphere is really important and you have it nailed! We even managed to get the Spotify playlist name so we will be playing at home in lockdown now! Cheers. X

We missed the tapas you used to do. The kinkhali dish was overpowered by soy which was a shame but the prawn starter was delicious. Lovely atmosphere and music.

Plau has moved up a notch on their food. Get in when they can open up again. We certainly will.

We ready it enjoyed our brunch at Plau. Only one problem in that the menus want explained to us and we thought we had to pick from the breakfast/lunch side of the menu. I ordered the trout sandwich (my wife and daughter also ordered a sandwich) but I was given and charged for the trout main. This was really good and worth the £16 but it wasn't what I ordered and we may have chosen other items had we known we could pick off both sides of the menu.
