“just gets better and better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Have been fairly regular visitors since this restaurant opened and really feel that the food and presentation are getting better and better. The ambience has also improved and the place seemed warm, friendly and inviting. They are making an effort to source locally and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and made a few very good recommendations. I especially enjoyed the marmalade vodka with my key lime desert and would not have tried this without the suggestion.
Our venison main course was also a triumph with a bottle of the wine of the month. Keep up the good work and looking forward to our next visit.

“Friendly, good quality and fair prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

This is a very good deed in Stratford
It isn't a gourmet experience, the chairs are eclectic and many too low for the table and the bar can be noisy but it is warm, courteous, scoff-able grub with really nice service and a great buzz
Enjoy -oh and the wine list good and reasonable

“A lovely pre theatre meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We enjoyed a delicious terrine starter, coley and duck main courses: beautifully cooked and served. We decided against a bottle of wine as we were going to the theatre, instead a glass each and the bill was entirely reasonable as a result. A very nice upstairs which was full by 5.30pm

“Fantastic Food & a Great Chef in Stratford on Avon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

I visited with our French teaching Chef & another food/alcoholic, The food was some of the best that any of us have eaten in the UK let alone Stratford , Presentation was of Raymond Blanc standard, the quality of the produce was superb. We each chose a different courses & all were cooked to perfection.
Service was attentive but not aggressive all of us felt it was a great evening, cost was not expensive £45 each incl pre -drinks & 2 bottles of wine.

“A gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

There are many restaurants to choose from in Stratford and, having eaten at a number of them, we think this is the best one for food that we've found so far. The 3 course lunch was exceptional value at £16 and the food was delicious - really not far off a Michelin star. The restaurant seems to only have maybe 40 covers so I would imagine booking was essential on weekends.
