We went for lunch before the play. Good to see some "hot" jerk on the menu. Food was ok but not outstanding and not that fiery. Customer service left a little to be desired b

We were attending a pantomime at the Theatre Royal Stratforf on Boxing Day so checked out the restaurant as it would mean we had plenty of time to eat before the performance , rather than a nearby restaurant. The drinks arrived promptly and we waited about 15- 20 minutes for the food which was freshly cooked. I had Escovich fish... More

Great bar attached to the theatre - food is generally good but can be slow service. Warm, welcoming atmosphere that's fun and relaxed.

On Mondays they have FREE comedy night. Some days are better than others but in general it's great. Staff is very nice. Didn't had food but lots of people are eating there so I guess it's good. Once I been on red carpet night. Ton of quality time

My hubby and I always arrive at the Theatre early in order to have something to eat from here first. The meat is always tender and they're very generous with the rice and peas. The only downside is that I never have any room left for dessert...

Friendly bar and eatery adjacent to Stratford shopping centres and railway/Tube/Overground station. In the same building as the Theatre Royal so ideal for a pre-show drink/meal or to relax in after a trip round Stratford's extensive and varied shopping facilities. The food is very tasty and not overpriced, with a distinct Caribbean flavour. Service is good.

I used to be borderline evangelical in recommending the Jerk Chicken at the Theatre Royal's excellent bar and restaurant. It's been my comfort food for many years and the quality and portion sizes never failed to amaze me. The quality dropped a little when the price went up from £7.50 to £9, but that was resolved, within a few weeks.... More

Went here on Tuesday night for a bite to eat with my friends and we were so impressed with the atmosphere, the great quality tasty food, at reasonable prices and the excellent polite friendly service from the young man behind the bar and serving food. My friends are still raving about it, thanks so much.

Went here for a team lunch. It was quiet, but still had a nice relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent, very tasty, good range of options, good portion sizes and reasonably priced. I will definitely be returning here again. The only improvement needed is that the service for the food was quite slow. It took 40 minutes from time ordered... More

We ordered a take out from this place. By the time we got home we had half of our order. We tried to call to raise the issue but nobody had answered we tried all evening. Eating in is fine but don't bother with their shody take out service. Which isn't a service.
