My girlfriend and I are big fans of Greek cuisine and we weren't disappointed at all when we went for my birthday and ordered the meze menu. Small portions of goodness that amount into a lovely and authentic experience. I recommend it.

Decided to try this for a Saturday night meal out and was very impressed. We went for the Greek Meze Banquet which I highly recommend. All staff were very friendly and explained what all the different courses were. Booking essential especially on Saturday night.

We do make sheftalies on occasions as a special. However, they are not present on our menu. Sometimes we get people requesting them and we can make them in these cases.

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 the Greek Island Prawns, Mousaka and not to forget the Greek Souvlaki (skewers) and Lamb Koftas. Desserts like the delicious and very popular Greek Yoghurt cheesecake and home made Baklava. Sokrates Taverna has an excellent selection of red, white and rose wines from Greece and Cyprus.
