Modern European
Situated in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, The Vintner is a natural meeting place, be it for a coffee or something a little stronger in the café / bar, a meal in our restaurant or when getting together more formally in our Private Dining Room.

We have a diverse and thoughtful menu, locally-sourced and seasonally adjusted, as well as a comprehensive range of fine wines and beers from all over the world.

'The Vintner' derives its name from the year 1600, when John Smith traded, along with his wife, as a wine merchant (vintner) in this building. It is more than likely that William Shakespeare purchased his wine from here!

    This is a great place to eat and the food is good, but last year the food was excellent. For the money it's a shame it's not so good as it was. However please go the staff the service are top notch...despite the wee drop in food quality we will still dine at this venue

    We're regulars at, and fans of, The Vintner, which makes it the more disappointing to report a couple of recent problems with bookings. On our last-but-one visit the table which we had requested (and which had clearly been assigned to us) was occupied by another couple and we were told that there would be a "small delay". We were asked if we would like to have a drink while we waited. It seemed obvious that they had tried to squeeze another booking in ahead of us, and they had not finished by our booking time. We were due at the theatre, so we declined to wait and asked for another table - which turned out to be the worst in the house. Eventually the couple occupying "our" table left (no attempt by the staff to hurry them out) and we were able to take their place - but it left a sour taste and we did not feel particularly valued. On our last visit, we had again asked for the same table (booking weeks in advance) and again arrived to find that table occupied by another couple. From the questions they were asking it was clear that this couple were not regulars and I really did wonder if they really had booked that table before us, or if we had once again been fobbed off with an inferior table to give preference to walk-in trade. At least the food was as good, and the staff as pleasant and helpful, as always.

    Really lovely drink on Saturday and fabulous meal yesterday bu popped in today for drinks/ maybe to eat but left after one drink because there was a child being allowed to be babysat (for a team member we think) in the bar area - which isn't that illegal??? he was definitely under 10 ? And all we could hear was whatever was playing on the kiddy device he had been given to nanny him ???? Very poor for us on holiday - massive distraction from what should be our well earned adult time planned away from school holidays. Anyway we moved on and ate elsewhere but we did have a nice meal the day before although we had booked weeks in advance but were give an unreserved table that was OK but ................. I book way in advance for a reason and then always confirm reservation when prompted - a bit disappointing to have had a medicore table on the ground floor under the circumstances. Service i.e. all the lovely young servers of food and drink we encountered were great - fabulous. Food very, very good all power to the kitchen who I assume have little control over front of house - great beer though heard a rumour that big changes afoot - so will we come back ?? - debateable - given the points we have made and the changes that they have planned
