A good place for a casual lunch, with very decent food. Menu has a large offering and likely to find something for almost everyone. Mostly a bar with good service, food and atmosphere.

Stratford is the city of a repertory theatre festival of international reputation. The Festival operates from April till November and during that time the population of Stratford swells. The matinee and evening performances make the theatre goers who frequently attend two performances the same day scramble to find a place to eat. Predictably from 12:00 to 1:30PM and 5:30 to 7:30PM the rush for lunch but especially for dinner is of tsunami proportion. We’ve learned long ago to make reservations. During our last visit in October we decided to try Bentley restaurant and we made reservations for 6:00PM. It was a poor decision. Arriving at 6:00 we found that the table was not reserved and the only option was to wait for the first available table. It was too late to go looking for dinner anywhere else… A few minutes later we were led to a table near the bar where a large group was standing and drinking, perhaps waiting for any available table. It was dark, the noise was overwhelming, our table was rickety, the service predictably slow and the food, when it did arrive, was memorably bad. I cannot remember equally inferior fish and chips. Since the noise was such that we could communicate in sign language only we had ample time to reflect on the miserable quality of our dinner. All in all a singularly uninspiring experience.

Since dining before a theatre performance can be difficult without a reservation I called Bentleys to see if there was an opening for 5.30. The person who took the call was rude and our reservation was right by the front door where the cold air kept coming in. People coming in off the street were getting better seats than us and when I asked for a booth or another area I was told it would be 20 minutes. Point being,don't bother with a reservation as you will get a better table without. The menu has quite a variety of items to choose from and was ok for pub food. The wait staff really hustle and are friendly.

Stopped by for dinner on a Monday night while in town. I had the chicken flatbread and salad, my husband had the quiche of the day and soup. Both were delicious and served quickly. Service was good.
