Just what we needed to beat the January blues !!!! Do not let the outside cloud your judgement as the inside is spotless , and the decor makes you feel you are in Greece not Horwich!!! Food is tantalising,portions are rather large!! Service is excellent ,well worth a visit!!

Both myself and my wife are big fans of this great Horwich restaurant, of which we have a fair few I'm glad to say. Back in May 2016 we went and experienced the Greek Party night that they do on the last Thursday of every month and saw on the table it being mentioned about the new Years Eve party... More

We have never been to a Greek Taverna before and didn't know what to expect. We had the Meze Banquet that was served by friendly efficient staff. The food, staff, atmosphere and entertainment was excellent. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Went for new year, having been a few times to this restaurant and having loved it. I am sorry to write this as I love this restaurant generally but tonight we found it really quite poor. I do try to be fair and objective when writing reviews, not to be awkward but to help businesses understand from a customer's perspective... More

I had the Meze banquet which was a great selection of Greek food the dishes just kept coming. After food the entertainment started and was lots of fun and we all enjoyed taking part. The special Greek dancing night is once a month on a Thursday evening.

Lovely evening catching up with an old friend (from France). Great atmosphere especially on a Wednesday evening. Super food took the liberty of pre-ordering the Kleftiko for both of us and we were not disappointed. Can't wait to return but this time we shall try for a Thursday night and enjoy the dancing.

Booked a table of 8 for a family get-together. One in a wheelchair, one on crutches, the rest of us ageing gracefully. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the authentic (if dated) Greek atmosphere. But the real difference was the performance of the super-efficient and friendly staff. Instantly welcoming and accommodating. We all had the meze which happily filled 90... More

Strangely you sometimes gravitate towards the main hubs like Manchester for perceived good food but Sokrates in Horwich can claim to lay such myths to rest. Accommodated a vegan in our party with ease and understanding while the rest of the party had a wonderful meze. Not much more to say other than you won't be disappointed.

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.
