We attended as a group of six friends and had a great evening - fascinating venue, excellent food and drink. My only slight criticism was that we paid our bill in cash. Our change wasn’t returned. When we queried this, we were told it had been “assumed” to be a tip. We were indeed planning on leaving it as a tip, but thought it was a bit presumptuous to assume.

Great food and decor however we would have appreciated service with a smile😊. We would have liked to have been offered dessert before the kitchen closed, when we asked we were told that the dessert menu was a work in progress.

Loved Plau gin and beer house, we had a fantastic night!! We ordered 13 dishes between 4 of us and everything was exceptional! The food was truly devine and we certainly will be returning! The only comment i would make is that the music in the restaurant could have been a little louder so it didn't sound like it was coming from downstairs!!

We’ve visited The Pla for drinks and food. This place is a gem. From the moment you enter.. the atmosphere is fantastic. The decor is beautiful. We recommend explore the bars first then dine upstairs. It feels like a high end establishment but the prices are very reasonable . Very good value. Full praise to the staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable and a credit to the bar! Get there early!! Saturday was heaving at 7.30 pm! My favourite place in Preston bar none.

The food was really good, the portion sizes were a lot bigger the what I was expecting and the staff where lovely and was quite happy to help with anything we needed, still some learning problems like our food going to two tables before reaching our table but we had a laugh about it as it is a new place and staff are getting use to the lay out. All in all I will be returning for both the food and the drinks

Loved our first visit! We went on a Sunday so had the Wild Feasting menu which was great and good value. The staff were all very knowledgeable about the gins and beers. We had a look at the well after our meal and ended up staying there for another 3 hours! Bar manager was very knowledgable on beer and let us have some tasters so see what we preferred. 10/10

Excellent all round service from walking in to completion of meal. Could do with bigger tables for all the food that arrived. Other than that could not fault it.

There was an issue with tickets going to the kitchen so our food took a long while to come, however we thought the staff dealed with the situation really well. The food was well worth the wait and we will definitely come again and recommend Plau.
