The best food I have ever eaten in the city centre. Second only to the Cartford Inn in the wider area, in my opinion. We can't wait to come again. Every aspect was utterly delightful and such a wonderful night all round. Many thanks.

Food and drink was absolutely superb, especially the cocktails. The waiting staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Would heartily recommend Plau to anyone.

This is such an interesting building with many levels. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties (lots of stairs). Quite dark downstairs, so probably not for anyone with sight difficulties also. The food was nice, although there was no guide as to how big the portions were, eg, the prawn dish was 4 prawns, but the seafood with lentils was much larger. The price of the food is higher than average but it was tasty. We paid £200 for food and drinks for 5 people (2 people drinking alcohol) on the sit before 6 menu which includes the 10% discount.

We really enjoyed our meal here. It is great to see a building in Preston being renovated and more choices of restaurants in the city. It was quiet as we had booked early for something to eat and were not disappointed in the taster choices we made. With the well in the basement an interesting talking point it is a great venue for something just that little bit different. Well (!) done Plau...

The service from our lively waiter was perfect . Very informed about the menu and interested in what we thought . The food was excellent as usual . It is not cheap but that’s not what you want . Maybe the odd offer here and there might be a good idea to encourage more frequent dining as it is a lovely experience .

We got a last minute booking at Plau after coming once before with a large group of friends. The food was faultless and so tasty. This was even better than the first time I visited and will definitely be back. The standard has been set for Preston for sure!
