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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.
