Sokrates Tavern on Winter Hey Lane in Horwich is a relaxed and friendly restaurant serving authentic Greek, Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. The dining room has a rustic and easy-going ambience. When the temperatures are high customers love to dine in the Greek village yard. The focal point of the menu is the Greek Meze Banquet which offers an array of 15 or more dishes served to the middle of the table for people to share over an hour or so. It is a great way to eat with family or friends and enjoy a Feast of Flavours. There is a full A' la Carte menu with dishes like Stifado, Mousaka and not to forget the Greek Souvlaki (skewers) and Lamb Koftas. Desserts like the delicious and very

Food was amazing and portion sizes were generous, I struggled to eat all mine. Highly recommend the aubergine! Pricing was reasonable as well. Will definitely be going for a second visit and have already recommended this restaurant to friends and family.
