The Westmorland Gazette: MAIN

Nestling in the heart of the bustling market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Plato’s is the sort of place where you can relax over good food and great conversation. Read the papers with a cup of artisan coffee, share a bottle of wine with friends, or for that little extra escapism, why not stay for the night? Everyone is welcome, especially friends of the four-legged variety.

We really love our food at Plato’s. We can’t think of a better way to spend our time sharing something deicious with friends. Try our traditional home cooking, with a twist, made from fresh ingredients sourced on our doorstep. Food is served throughout the day with seasonal menu changes.

The Bar at Plato’s rings with laughter and friendly conversation. Come and soak up the atmosphere, relax inside or outside and enjoy a hearty breakfast, an impromptu lunch or evening meal. Our wine list selected by grape so that you can try new variations of your favourite wine, and honest beers and local real ales for the drinker who knows the difference.

We understand that one of the joys of going away is to indulge in a little bit of luxury. Within our higgledy piggledy old building, each of our eight rooms are luxurious and unique furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture. With drench showers and underfloor heating, you can suggle down in a Vi-Spring bed – the only thing that is standard at Plato’s is comfort.
