After visiting The Encore twice last year and having an enjoyable experience, we looked forward to our visit yesterday. However, we were bitterly disappointed. Stratford was heaving with visitors, yet The Encore was fairly quiet. We sat inside and ordered our food. Smoked fish cakes with salad and two roast pork lunches. The fish cakes were tiny little deep fried to death balls full of potato but no fish with a lettuce leaf, two halves of a cherry tomato and three slices of spring onion ( cost £9.95) I asked for more salad and saw this was added to the bill as an additional side order! The pork lunches were three slices of thin pork, three roast potatoes and a small bowl of mange tout and carrot to SHARE! The roast lunches were £14.95 each! After a very unpleasant incident regarding the vegetables the manager, who was very apologetic and honest said there would be no charge for any of our meals. The place was dirty, full of flies and just generally unpleasant. Very sad to see such a thriving place sink to this.
