The eve before lockdown II, and the Oppo was full of regulars fitting in a 'last dash', all leaving with the words "see you in a month... we will miss you!". And we will. Because as with sisters Lamb's and Vintners, the food is great, setting is charming while relaxing, the 'specials' always varied and enticing, and it's impossible not to enjoy an evening here. The staff and their friendly engagement are a genuine highlight, too. The lockdown cannot end quickly enough...
Enjoyable evening. Good food and staff. Some menu items were very expensive.
Visited with my sisters, the food, wine and service were excellent
Excellent food, reasonably priced. Wonderful service, very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Great food, great service! Great value for money
Our only bugbear was that we could only have the table for 2 hours.
Fabulous dinner here. Food was all excellent (scallops starter, Pot and Lamb mains) and the staff were a joy. One night in Stratford and we chose very well!
Excellent!! This place never disappoints. My husband’s rib eye steak was particularly delicious, and there are always plenty of specials to choose from. Even the children’s food is of a particularly high standard. The staff are wonderful too. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. One of our all time favourite places in Stratford.
Ate at the Opposition Bistro the other evening and had a lovely meal, friendly service and overall good value
Really enjoyed the food and drink here. Good value for money too.
Lovely setting. Great food. Most staff stringently stuck to wearing masks correctly...particularly the female staff. Spaced out tables fast service
Great food and the staff couldn’t do enough for us
Fantastic meal and friendly helpful staff quick and efficient.
Amazing food and an overall fantastic experience.
Superb, food, service and ambiance as usual at this super small restaurant in Stratford u Avon.
We both had moules frites with a prawn cocktail starter. Everything was spot on.
A really good meal during this difficult period of our lives
The seating was good and it appeared that care had been taken to keep us clear of the virus
Excellent food and fantastic staff, great venue and good ambiance
First time we have eaten here, don’t know why we waited so long to go.
Certainly be going back.
Great food that is well presented. Staff very friendly and helpful, I would definitely go again
Popped in for Sunday lunch and I have to say the food was outstanding and excellent value for money. Looking forwards to going back again!
Lovely food Starters great ,except beef dish was very fatty
My other half and I chose The Opposition to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and had a wonderful meal. Thank you to the whole team for looking after us so well.
Great ambience, service was impeccable as was the food and drink. We had a table by the window which was lovely. Definitely recommend
Excellent service. We stayed long beyond the allotted two hours as we were two groups of friends meeting for the first time since lockdown and the staff were appropriately attentive and helpful. Good food too! Will return.
Brilliant food and even better service - in times where we can’t go out and you want to find somewhere special to make the most of when we’re allowed- go to The Oppo
The food was amazing will go again its well worth the 40min drive to Stratford
IT was fine and we enjoyed all aspects of our evening, food, service. Only small write down is that the dining room lacked any sort of character and was rather plain.
Fantastic meal, beautiful atmosphere and lovely staff. Best meal we’ve had for a long time and the best steak I’ve had ever! (Ribeye - Perfectly seasoned and so tasty). My husband and I had 3 courses each and couldn’t fault a single thing. Nothing but praise for this wonderful place! We will definitely return!
Celebrated my wife's birthday on Saturday night with two other couples. Despite the Coronavirus restrictions, we had a fantastic evening, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and the meal was a triumph!
Great place to eat even in these awkward times they gave plenty of space to eat and feel safe
We had lunch recently, the food we amazing in particular the mains and puddings. The service was very quick & friendly.
Covid measures have been put in place too.
Outstanding best Sunday lunch ever will be returning
Excellent quality of food.
The Oppo has managed the Covid-19 adjustments very well
During our recent stay in Stratford upon Avon we used the Opposition on one evening. Easily the best choice we made! Lovely staff, great ambience, good food. A great choice.
The best place to eat in Stratford by a mile and good value!
Have always loved this restaurant never had a unpleasant experience in the 20 years. Thank you
We have been to the Opposition many times now and never have we had a bad meal. The staff are always very hospitable and make you feel welcome. Hats off to the staff for the way they are coping with social distancing. Considering the space to move around can be quite tight at parts of the restaurant, they are doing an outstanding job at keeping the customer safe. Will look forward to our next visit to Stratford and most definitely, the Opposition.
Excellent. The meals have been excellent all the time we have been going there.
Nice place to eat good food pleasant surroundings always busy
Covid 19 prevention guidelines were in place but this did not distract from the really wonderful food and service.
All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, 3 courses for £21, worth every penny.
Strongly recommend it.
