    We came here once before and the experience wasn’t so great! But the food is excellent! So we decided to try it again, this time everything was very good, the staff attentive, the food arrived efficiently and was delicious. We wild go back again next time we visit Stratford. We would recommend for sure

    What wonderful restaurant! Staff are so friendly but professional! Food was very tasty, seasoned well & it came on a warm plate which I’m always happy about. We both enjoyed our pre drink & the rose wine was special!

    This is perfect for a pre-theatre meal, for which they are well prepared. The staff are friendly, welcoming and efficient. There's an informal feel to the place which makes very good use of every nook and cranny: even when full and busy you feel your private conversations are not overheard. The dishes are beautifully prepared, and they are not afraid to play with various cuisine. The 2 or 3 course offers are good value, and narrow down the choices if you struggle to make a decison with the main menu. Every taste is catered for.

    Greeted with a smile. A dairy free menu for lactose intolerance... so helpful. Great care to ensure all was good without feeling overwhelmed. Overall, a lovely meal served with care.

    Nice place and food was good. The only real problem was the peppercorn sauce. It was like dirty water with some peppercorns in it..that is not a sauce. Rather don't offer a sauce. My wife's pepper dish was superb.
