Me and my family went for our tea today. The staff was amazing. The food was delicious and would highly recommend my friends to have their tea. I will be going back to Sokrates Taverna again.

The food is great - the atmosphere is fab - the service and friendly helpful staff are second to none. The surroundings are clean but could do with some modernisation - but traditions are traditions and it's a great Night out!

Easy to find with free parking nearby. Friendly and helpful staff. A large enough choice on the menu, with generous portions and efficient service. I will be going back during this visit to Bolton!

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.

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.
