Lovely open fires, comfy chairs and lively atmosphere, great after work wind down with friends or pre-theatre dining. Reasonably priced drinks and food is good with wide range to suit everyone. Sit outside if warm enough. They are even open for lunch on Christmas Day this year! Tempting!

The table was booked for a pre theatre dinner and so we were eating early. At the time of booking a set price dinner was being offered and it was made clear at the time of booking that was what we would be requiring. When we were given our menus we were told that the set priced menu was not available ( I suspect because the mop fair was on and they were expecting to be busy). The waiter said that there was nothing he could do but when we were insistent that the booking had been made on that condition he went away and returned with the menu we required. We enjoyed what we had and all agreed the food was tasty and well presented. The menu we enjoyed was good value although I thought the a la carte one we were first offered looked a tad expensive for what it was.

We drove over to Stratford for a bit of shopping. With no idea where to eat, we decided on The Encore. First impressions are of a standard pub with a mature feel. Service at the bar was excellent with cheery friendly staff. There was a real sour faced young lady walking around collecting glasses who made no attempt at any warmth or eye contact - but she looked really out of kilter with all the other staff. The food arrived in very good time; a rib eye and a lamb roast. The food was excellent. Hot and good portions. The meat was cooked perfectly and was a quality cut. The side orders and veg were equally good. We were both very pleasantly surprised. It is not often we decide that we would make an effort to return, but next time in Stratford we will return here.
