Sharing the ground floor with the magnificent triple-height lobby is The Stratford Brasserie. The seasonal menu, by Ben Harrington, formerly of Soho House, is characterised by local produce and European influences, blending classic brasserie staples with a touch of the unexpected.

Uniting locals, guests and residents over coffee, cocktails and light, relaxed dishes, The Stratford Brasserie is unlike anything in the city – a sprawling, vibrant space featuring an open kitchen, eclectic seating and lounge area and in addition an art installation called ‘Gust of Wind’ by Paul Cocksedge.

They didn't offer the set menu even though it's clearly there on the menu. They demanded us to order a la carte. Their reasons were that they were not ready to offer some of the items on the set menu...

Excellent food, great service, would definitely return. Only reason for not giving it a 5* is we all felt the gravey could have had a little less wine in it.

This was the first time I have eaten in the brasserie (previously we have eaten at the Allegra in the same hotel) and I was really surprised but how nice the food was. There was so many things on the menu that appealed to me but I settled for the burrata to start followed by the hake and finished off with the coconut/pineapple panna cotta and every course surprised by expectations. The service was great and a lovely mix of friendly people on the surrounding tables. Will definitely go back.

Very nice food but service quite slow. The waiter was very nice and helpful but the kitchen were quite slow in making our order, especially the main course. But, a very nice space & good music. Hopefully it will be better next time we visit.

I wasn’t happy with my visit to the brasserie.
The waitress was clearly distressed with the amount of work she had to do.
I had to remind staff twice about our drinks.
The food took over 45mins to arrive.

Finally, my chicken schnitzel was absolutely terrible.

The cocktails were delicious, but other than that, I was hugely disappointed

We’d been to The Stratford Brasserie before and had a fairly good experience however was really disappointed with this trip. The service wasn’t good and had to wait ages to order, get drinks or get the bill. We all ordered different mains from the menu but nobody at the table enjoyed theirs - either lack of flavour or too salty. The food needs A lot of improvement. I’d think twice before booking again. Bit of a shame as the building is lovely and location is great.

It was my first time visiting The Stratford Brasserie and it will not be my last. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. They interacted with my daughter, who was very fond of them! It was my mums birthday and they gave her complimentary macarons. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious!

Have been here before and everything was perfect, but went at the weekend with family and sadly it wasn't quite as good. Two of the group ordered breakfast tea and it didn't come until half way through the main meal, after quite a lot of chasing. Another member of the group also ordered porridge and toast for breakfast, but we had to ask three times for the toast to arrive. Food was very tasty as always and it's reasonably priced for such a lovely setting, and the ambience is great. Will definitely go back and give it another chance but sadly couldn't give 5 stars on this occasion!

Was hugely pleased with brunch last Saturday. The food was delicious and the waiting staff attentive but not over the top. The free flow Prosecco or bloody Mary’s for £20 is great value. Definitely will go back as I’d like to sample more of the great menu.

Lovely atmosphere. A very good place to come for a private conversation and good food.
The chicken Maryland would have been more attractive if it had been served in smaller slices and with an accompaniment. The side of carrots was delicious, but the portion size was slightly on the big side for one person. The miniature crudities were delightful and the overall experience was very pleasant.

The food was excellent and the service friendly and professional despite the staff being constantly busy.
The atmosphere feels a little lacking in personality, but that may be because the restaurant is essentially part of the lounge bar which feels very much like a hotel lounge.
With the 15% local discount dinner was still in excess of £130, which we felt was worth it but means we can’t afford to visit often. A great experience overall.

Not enough choice on food menu. What there was wasn't great, expected better after reading previews.

Not a great choice of cocktails, none of the usual favourites.

Popped in here for a quick bite to eat whilst someone was working on my flat. Chance to try their pizzetta which was just fine - the right size (a full one would have been too big for me!). Washed down with some prosecco. There's always a warm welcome and I shall miss being a local now that I've moved.

Very tasty food and good value for brunch. Achingly cool open plan reception / lobby / bar / lounge. Did feel service was a bit too relaxed and although happy not to feel rushed there could be a bit more sense of urgency and attention to guests.

Celebrated New Years Eve 2019/2020. Food was amazing and service impeccable. We stayed in the lounge area for drinks and music. Again the service was impeccable with staff who were friendly and who had the spirit of New Years. Definitely would go back and try their breakfast, afternoon tea and mezzanine bar. My new gem of a place to go to when in Stratford.

We went to the Stratford Brasserie on Christmas Day, the service was understandably a little patchy, the amuse bouche failed to arrive, even though this was requested three times and we had to ask for the mince pies/petit fours. The food though was delicious and I thought it was good value.

Having booked this for our Christmas Day lunch, my expectations were not met, and I was left feeling very underwhelmed. There was a distinct lack of attention to detail (the table never had a full set of cutlery, crackers were not on the table or offered, and no petit fours appeared with our coffees). I expected more from a hotel charging £200+ per night for a basic room, and even more on what should be a special day.

Spontaneous lunch meet with my lovely friend who has left the Village. Cheeky glass of fizz to accompany a delicious duck rillette, followed by sticky pork belly - which had a good mix of crackling and chewy crackling LOL! I will miss this place when I move but at least I know somewhere to go when I visit the area again.

Seemed quiet but service was exceptionally slow and having chase drinks several times. Took 50mins to receive 3 burgers. They were tasty and well cooked however slightly on the small size.

Four of us dined on Saturday night for my partner’s birthday. From the moment we arrived we felt extremely welcomed and I instantly picked up on how well trained the team are.

The menu has a great selection of dishes and really lovely sides. We really enjoyed our evening and could not fault the service we received.

Thank You for a lovely evening!
