Traditional British pub! We went here after the theatre and this is where all the actors go afterwards. Good atmosphere!

Good view of the lovely park from the lovely patio and front of the pub. Reasonable price from a wide selection of lagers,ales and bitters and friendly and prompt service. Good introduction for my visiting relatives. Worth another visit.

A really great Friday night, went with 9 year old. Lovely table, great service & fab food. Plus the service was fantastic. I have not been for a while but I have to say it is one of the best places in Stratford.

This used to be the pub where the actors, some of them, came for a drink after the evening performance. There weren't any this time. The boss has opened the backroom to the public, which is where the actors sometimes retired from view. Perhaps that's...More
