From starter to main, everything was superb. The management and staff know how to run a great place with great food. Best steak I’ve had in ages. Best value for done time. Might need to book at weekends? Will visit again.

Hard to beat this place for quality food, good menu choices, and a really friendly, professional staff. I particularly liked the salmon fishcakes. My wife and I ate here twice while in Stratford-upon-Avon and thought it superior in quality and service both times.

Fabulous service from Assistant Manager Matt. He arranged for me to make a telephone payment as a surprise for my parents anniversary. He couldn’t have been more polite and helpful. Thanks you. My parents had a great time and over their meal too!!!
