Gastro Pub
The One Elm was the second pub in the Peach Pubs’ stable. It has long been a stalwart in the Stratford social scene. Our latest refurbishment has added cosy booths and a new log fire up in the Loft and re-paved the courtyard, so it’s the perfect spot to eat, drink and catch up with friends any time of the day or year.

Had a great evening of drinks with friends. Service was so impeccable we never had an empty glass! I think our server was called Tom? He was really great. Had a nice table in the courtyard and was offered heat lamps and hot water bottles in the evening when it became cold due to not being able to sit inside because of Covid restrictions. They even let us bring our dog and gave her some water and treats! Would highly recommend and we are going again next week!

Had such a nice time at The One Elm. All staff were on the ball at all times, they ran the place like a show, everyone was well versed in making this a safe environment for all. Myself and partner had two servers and the food was really nice too. Offered more gravy for our roast without having to ask (this is a revelation as most places don’t offer this!). Offered more veg or potatoes if there wasn’t enough for us too (we were stuffed as it was, great portion sizes!).
Thanks so much for the service, would recommend and will visit again if we’re ever in the area.

Staff were polite but service was terrible. Unacceptably long wait. Food when it arrived was well presented and cooked well. Menu choice was severely reduced due to a number of main courses being taken off the menu. Too late to have pudding. Ordered at 9.15 pm and received starters at 10.10 pm.

Oh dear- sorry Corinne, I think the eat out to help out scheme might have gotten the best of us in the first couple of weeks- demand was so high.

As loyal One Elm customers over several years, we left disappointed after our recent lunch there. The place seems tired and in need of a spruce up. The food was of average quality and, considering the place was extremely quiet, the quality put into our food was just average, I’m afraid. However, the personnel were all friendly as we’ve come to expect and maybe it’s a cyclical thing. We wish the One Elm all the best but we won’t be returning in the near future.
