Food was very good but too much of it ! They have good quality but no need to pile on salad for no reason. Good surroundings and service. Excellent choices for food and wine. Definitely would go again !

Small but perfectly formed, Socrates is, without question, my favourite place to eat! Wonderful food, excellent service, good value. Varied menu and plenty parking round about. What more could you ask ? Be sure to book as very popular.

Since I first discovered this super little eatery in November of last year, I have returned again and again because the food is excellent, the portions are generous and the service is quick and friendly. That is why I keep coming back!
