A great spot to visit in Stratford!
Jul 2021 • Friends
A great place to visit, especially since the refurb project! There is so many great pieces to explore and a wide range of gifts!

We stopped for lunch in the cafe and the team were wonderful, my friend was anxious about going out with social distancing etc, but the team at Bonds made her feel super comfortable. The service was fantastic, and the hot chocolate to die for!

Can’t wait to go back! Definitely would recommend!

Avoid the coffee shop
Jun 2021
Lovely shopping place to visit with some different items. However avoid the coffee shop at all costs. Tried to get a coffee, waited to get shown a table eventually, sat there for 15 minutes and at that point left. Plenty of staff doing everything but interacting with the customers and it wasn’t over busy.

A disgrace!
Jun 2021 • Couples
We have been visiting Bonds shop for several years now and recently improvements have been made to the shopping experience.

But, avoid hge cafe.

We decided to have an afternoon cream tea. One, pathetically distasteful scone, inferior cream and in excess of £6 for the privilege.

An absolute disgrace!

Hugely disappointing short visit
Jun 2021
Where to start? The inside sales area is lovely and the gifts and products are great and of a high quality. It is the cafe that is the problem! Sort yourselves out please, before you drive everyone away! I met a friend there at 10 30 and we were met by an overly officious young girl who was verging on obnoxious. She interrupted our conversation while we were trying to decide where to sit (inside or out) and kept shoving the Covid sign-in sheet at us. Then she told us that for coffee we were only allowed to stay one hour! That is of course no use to anyone, especially if meeting a friend. On principle I do not do sittings but absolutely no way can you offer just an hour (and one and a half for lunch, so eat fast!). Do they seriously come and tip you out? Probably! Needless to say we will not be rushing back. We went elsewhere and it was unhurried and lovely. Interesting to note that no Manager has bothered to answer the latest reviews of Bonds, both good and bad. Says it all really!!

Amazing new look, great food and still dog friendly.
Jun 2021
We arrived at 2.00pm and went straight to the cafe. Two excellent paninis and cappuccinos, served by cheerful and attentive staff set us up to explore the two floors of retail therapy. This was our first visit since lockdown eased and we were impressed by all that has taken place to improve even further this wonderful Aladin's cave of creative ideas and gift suggestions. Even the car park has been extended to accommodate the increased foot fall that is bound to be generated Most importantly for us, it is still dog friendly!! Full marks to the management of Bonds.

Such a disappointment.

So disappointed!
We regularly visited here and made several purchases before lockdown .What have they done ??
Where have all the individual traders gone to ?Replaced by more expensive areas now ,
We have just discovered The Barn at Long Marston so will be visiting there instead .
We won’t be returning to Bonds ,

Sadly disappointed
May 2021 • Couples
I’ve always loved visiting here and was looking forward to returning after lockdown ended. I can’t comment on the cafe as I didn’t stay long enough but I did see they’d added a lot to their outside area which looked a good idea. There were plants outside which looked lovely but when going inside I was surprised to see it had completely changed. Although it has been beautifully done, to me I much preferred it how it was. It has always been fairly overpriced but now it’s just silly prices. There are some nice sellers and if this place had opened as a brand new business i guess I would consider it to be a lovely place but I just keep comparing it to before. Yes they’ve kept some antiques but not many and that’s what I went to look at. So for anyone that’s an old customer I feel the majority will be disappointed. I feel a lot of browsing will be done but maybe not so much purchasing. Like another reviewer has said ‘don’t try to fix what isn’t broke’.

Breakfast vastly overpriced!
May 2021 • Couples
We visited Bonds this week for breakfast and to have a look around the updated shop, which is always a delight as my wife always finds a bargain or two.
It was nice to see the effort made to reopen the cafe, we sat in a gorgeous tent with a wood fire, a lovely touch!
We had two Full English Breakfasts, two extra toasts and three Coffees, the breakfasts were of good quality but small portions, coffee was nice but I was disappointed in the size of my Latte, as I ordered a second Latte I said to the waiter “I asked for a large Latte?” He replied “This is the only size we do.” I said it’s a bit on the small side, he replied “Yes, I’ve always thought that myself.”
To my amazement, all of this came to £33!
Whilst I appreciate Bonds use quality ingredients (we frequently stop off for lunch which is superb and reasonably priced) I’d say the Full English breakfast needs to be looked at and perhaps adjusted to make it better value.
