We are here on Valentine's and as you'd expect it was packed but that didn't mean that the service or food suffered. The pasta was delicious, my wife had the carbonara and I had the black linguini. Both were excellent as were the starters and desserts. The menu wasn't as extensive as some restaurants but everything we saw looked fantastic.... More

Ordered half a lobster with linguine, muscles, prawns, etc. Flavour, flavour, flavour!!! You have to try it, but you need to pre order when you book. It just is a fantastic main meal and you really are depriving yourself if you don't have it at least once. Mmmmmm!!!!!!.... I could eat this every week and never get board.

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst on a trip to Stratford, and what a lovely surprise. Everything from start to finish was Devine. The starters were very generous and bursting with flavours. The main were also good. The service was excellent. And loved the decor, very regal lounge to the front. Oh and did I mention the service was excellent.... More

We visited Stratford Upon Avon for the weekend as a 'valentines celebration'. We both love Italy and I decided that it would be possible, with a little imagination, to recreate our favourite country, right here in the U.K., the town of Shakespeare's birth. I piloted our Leer jet into Milan airport (parked my Citroen C1 in Bridgeway car park) and... More

Have been dining in the restaurant over frequent visits to stratford over the last 25 years, this warm family run restaurant has a an authentic feel about it. A good menu choice and very traditional. The Prawn cocktail was perfect and generous. Good rather than exceptional food and presentation.

I returned here having come with friends a couple of months ago. This time I brought my wife for dinner before an evening performance at The Swan. We had booked but we're in fact half an hour early. This wasn't a problem at all and all the staff were very obliging and made a fuss of us and we had... More
