About Sokrates Taverna - Horwich

Dear diners, please note that special discounts are accepted only via telephone bookings.

Sokrates Taverna in Horwich is an outpost of Greek sunshine in the not-so-sunny town of Bolton. They serve up delicacies that recall balmy evenings looking out over the Med from the tavernas of Santorini, afternoons on the beach in Crete, stop-offs on sightseeing tours of Athens and even a few nightcaps you might have had in Faliraki. Based on Winter Hey Lane, they are the best Greek thing to happen to Bolton since Stelios left the Wanderers.

More about Sokrates Taverna - Horwich, Bolton

Greek food is something that most English people will have experienced only in bursts of summer holidays, but at Sokrates Taverna in Horwich, it is now available year round. They take their name from one of the great thinkers of classical Athens, but one need not be a genius to see why a trip down to Bolton’s Winter Hey Lane in makes sense. In fact, the only Socratic problem you’ll be facing is when you pick up the menu, as there is so much choice.

Philosophically speaking, choice is always a good thing. At Sokrates Taverna on Winter Hey Lane in Horwich, you can begin a dialogue about what goes on your Plato by perusing the starter: a sharing triangle of dips, perhaps, or a Pythagorean triangle of spanakopites. Mains are an epicurean delight, with souvlaki, stifado and mousaka all available to those who eat meat, whereas Stoic vegetarians can enjoy the gigantes. Prices are a positively Aristotelian level of reasonable, so head down to Bolton’s most well-thought out Greek restaurant: there’s Socratic method in their madness.

Fantastic as usual, staff are great and the food is so good. Meze is a must! Place is a little slice of Greece and is highly recommended.
