There are many restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in Stratford, below are a few of our favourites. If you have any comments, or recommendations, or think there is somewhere we have missed please let us know.


(3 Sheep St 01789 292182)
Loxley’s take pride in delivering freshly cooked seasonal dishes in a relaxing and comfortable environment. With a varied menu that should suit all tastes Loxley’s it the perfect pre-theatre destination. 

No 9

 (Church St 01789 415522)
No 9 serves some of the best food in town, they use the finest local suppliers to serve fantastically executed food in their cosy restaurant near Stratford's Old Town. The style of food is British with a contemporary twist. No 9 restaurant is a real treat and well worth a visit for a special occasion.

El Greco’s

(27 Rother St, 01789 290505)
 Opened in 2012 this restaurant has varied Greek menu. If you are feeling VERY hungry try the “Mezzes” (22 dish award winning banquet).  We prefer to opt for the “Mini Mezzes” where you can choose your own 3 dishes for £12.50, a great way to try a few different things and excellent value for money. 

Le Bistrot Pierre

(Swan's Nest, Bridgfoot 01789 264804)
Only a 2min walk from us Bistrot Pierre is our 'local', it has fantastic views of the river and has a lovely deck to dine on when the sun is shining. They offer typical French Bistro food; although they are part of a small chain you will not find your typical humdrum food here. All food is fresh and well cooked. They offer a special gluten free menu if needed too.

The Church Street Town House

(16 Church St 01789 262222)
Church Street is one of our favourite restaurants in town, with an emphasis on local quality produce, its menu offers an eclectic mix of modern dishes from around the world. Having recently been refurbished and with parts of the building dating back to 1600 the mix of old and new makes you feel very welcome. One small criticism is that during the summer the building can get very hot so is sometimes uncomfortable. However if you are there on a Friday evening between 5pm-6pm a bottle of chilled Champagne is only £20

Edward Moon

(9 Chapel St 01789 267069)
Known locally as 'Moons', situated on Chapel Street next to many of Stratford-upon-Avon's key historical sites. They offer informal but professional service catering for all tastes. From the traditional British menu they will serve you the best quality food using local English ingredients, always with a smile. (They offer a 10% discount to Avonlea customers with the voucher attached to the menu in our breakfast room)

The Vintner 4 & 5 Sheep St

(01789 297259)

(12 Sheep St 01789 292554)
The Vintner & Lambs are both owned by the same people. They pride themselves on offering a fine mixture of traditional English cooking and modern European cuisine. Weekly changing specials reflect the thoughtful use of fresh, local produce. The Vintner serve food all day so it is a fantastic place to pop in and refuel at any time of day.
