Great food and fast service again and again. One of the only places in Stratford that shows consistency.

Not a lot of competition in Stratford but this place has a lot going for it. We were made very welcome by attentive and friendly staff. The menu was varied and not over priced. Reasonable drinks prices too. We had a lovely meal and went back for drinks the following night. Highly recommended if staying in Stratford.

Packed out 1st visit advised 1 or more wait so returned next night earlier 6pm. Good selection nicely presented and service very good. Waitresses know their stuff. Would recommend booking or go earlier.

A fairly limited menu, in the mid price range. Recommended to us by staff at our motel as most popular in town, but there is not a lot of competition. If you like steaks and larger portions this place should please.

Arrived for an early dinner, warmly welcomed, good service and food. Would have returned my second night in Stratford but was invited to a BBQ. Free wifi available.

We stopped by for a few drinks and dinner after a long day on the road. The service was excellent, the drinks reasonably priced, and the meals hit the spot and left us well satisfied. The only downside was that they weren't open for us to return for breakfast the next morning!

An awesome place to go for a meal. We went with a very active nearly 3 year old boy. The waitress was so good with him. Keeping him amused with pencils and colouring books. Got his meal out to him early. So welcoming. Very quick service and delivery of food. Beautiful meals. Highly recommend.

This is a good average family restaurant - nothing too flash but OK. The craft beer was lovely. The fish and chips were nicely battered and cooked and portions generous. Plenty of locals eating there.
