I have eaten here on numerous occasions and the fact that I keep going back must alert most people to the fact that it certainly meets my high standards as far as food quality, choice, service and environment are concerned. I never hesitate to recommend this to family and friends if they are visiting Stratford and I certainly don't hesitate... More

Tried to get in to Lambs for Sunday Lunch. Could not get in so tried Vintners a few doors away. They could take us for lunch and it was great. We ordered Roast Beef, with the trimmings. Had a bit of an issue with it being just warm when it arrived. However, their response when they realised it was excelant... More

There are many options for dining ahead of a visit to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford on Avon but my favourite is the Vintner Cafe and Wine Bar in Sheep Street, just round the corner from the RSC. Their set menu offers two courses for £16 or three for £19. Lovely surroundings, pleasant efficient staff, and excellent food. I... More

They serve breakfast here until 11.45am which means it's an ideal spot for a pre-matinee meal. The full English breakfast with poached eggs was excellent - the eggs were perfect. The service is incredibly friendly and helpful. The decor is interesting and cosy.

Went to Vitner on New Year's Day for dinner, it was fairly quiet, so there were plenty of staff available. The food was very nice and the service attentive without being intrusive. Well worth a visit.

The lunch menu is varied and interesting, not to mention well-executed. Confit duck leg was juicy and tender, while the skin was perfectly crisp, The salmon cakes were very tasty and served with a sorrel cream sauce which was amazing, and the chicken breast with a mild coconut curry sauce was excellent. Good value for money, lovely environment and friendly... More

Whether for drinks and snacks at the bar or a 3 course dinner The Vintner will not let you down. My wife and I did both and we enjoyed both experiences the staff and food are superb. Very busy as you can imagine so reservations are required.

The food is good, well presented and served at a good pace while the staff were friendly and attentive. It's a nice, warm & comfortable, venue in a very attractive town. In my opinion it's well worth a visit for either lunch or dinner. It was so nice we did both.

Thank Terence N
