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 have been coming to Vintners for at least 5 years as part of our special day out in Stratford. We love the place but it really is time you changed the menu! Food is good but it’s the same same every visit. Just not good enough. Will definitely look at other restaurant choices on our next visit.

    As ever, excellent food and service. Cannot fault the Vintner, it has maintained its excellence for many years and if you are one of the many tourists to our town then please make time to relax and eat here. if you are short of time them coffee and a mince pie is worth a quick visit.

    The quality of food was excellent and the table position in the window was great. The ambience of the restaurant and its location were top notch. Unfortunately the service when we were there was on the slow side…they were clearly struggling to keep up with demand.
