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!

    We booked into the Vintner for a birthday celebration. The service and food was excellent. All 6 of our party thoroughly enjoyed every course and the staff were very efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend the Vintner after eating there on several occasions.

    Disappointing to be upstairs - didn't know you had to request downstairs. Mango chicken dish v good. Mussels v fresh and large but sauce could have had more garlic and a touch of cream? Dessert - on waitress' recommendation - was excellent, baked chocolatey strawberry cheesecake

    This was a pleasant, quiet restraunt, suitable for a romantic evening out. The service was very good, there was no long waiting times but the staff didn't seem to want to interact. The lamb shank was one of the best I have ever had and my husband really enjoyed the lime chicken in a curry sauce. The cherry ice cream was to die for however my husbands cheese and biscuits didn't seem as generous as in the past. Overall a very pleasant evening

    Vintner's in Stratford-Upon-Avon really does tick all the boxes: atmospheric setting; excellent service; an interesting menu; and a bill that reflects the quality of the experience without requiring a second mortgage for payment. The menu offers contemporary twists and modern classics, with something to suit every taste - and was delicious. The choice of wines was excellent - and I liked that the majority of wines on the menu were available as single glasses (ranging from 175 - 250 ml in size), ensuring that we could enjoy a glass of quality wine without buying a bottle - and thus incapacitating ourselves for the theatre trip following our meal! Food arrive promptly at our table, was hot and well-presented. At the end of our meal we were able to linger and at no point felt rushed to move on for another reservation. The staff were welcoming, unobtrusively attentive and very good at their job. We'll certainly be back.

    A very pleasant experience. Food was excellent, although a little more choice might be a good idea. Service was good, although we were a little concerned that our online booking wasn’t immediately found due to it being hidden. We almost felt at first that we were to be refused entry. All quickly sorted. Atmosphere good although a table of diners when we were first there were a little loud.
