Set in the heart of the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Platos bar, restaurant and rooms opened in July 2009 and is receiving rave reviews from customers and suppliers alike, so its no surprise that they have just been awarded AA 5*s.
Platos was a dream for five years, over that time I built a visual picture of how I imagined the bar and restaurant to look, and the style and opulence of the bedrooms, recalled Fiona Robinson, Director of Platos. I think the result we have created is unique in Cumbria.
Working with local suppliers such as Sarah Osmond Interiors, Fionas dream became a reality in the middle of last year.
Over the last six months, with a young team and Senior Manager Sally Burrow at the helm, Platos has achieved success with the high standards set in quality furnishings, service, ambience and cleanliness.
Our goal now is to maintain this high standard at Plato’s, says Fiona, to ensure this very new business continues to grow its reputation as a quality hostelry in Kirkby Lonsdale, says Fiona.
Not content to rest on their laurels, the next stage is the Pop Shop, a traiteur with a back to your place service where you will be able to buy the same freshly prepared meals which are served in the restaurant, as well as a bottle of fine wine to accommpany it.
