Recommend to try elsewhere Most of the food seems to be frozen not fresh You would expect fresh when you are paying £13 for hamburger dish The Balti pie was a packet dish - very poor quality Toilet wax also quite dirty Place was empty but service very slow All in all a bit of a tourist trap

I have been a customer at the Mary Arden for nearly 20 years. Throughout the years the pub has been through its high and lows, but I can say honestly, never has the pub been in such a bad state!! The complete lack of interest from the staff and management is shocking, the place is filthy, unkept and sad to... More

We went for a weekend in Stratford and couldn't ask for a better location. Stratford is a beautiful place to visit and if you don't want to drive into the town a taxi is around ten pounds, the Mary Arden inn has very welcoming staff and the food is excellent. The breakfast is included and is excellent and you can... More

Since the Mary Arden has come under new management the atmosphere is terrible. I am a local and I use to walk into the pub and there was always a friendly face behind the bar and plenty of locals to talk to. Now you walk in there and feel like an outsider. I am very upset because the Mary Arden... More

We stayed for 1 night here and found the staff welcoming and helpful with a good comfortable room with en-suite bathroom/shower. We ate here and the food was excellent - my husband had the biggest piece of cod we had ever seen with nice homemade chips which he said was excellent and I had rump steak also with chips which...

We stayed at the Mary Arden Inn last night. The room was clean and comfortable, well aired and pleasant (we had ''Winter's Tale''). It was not perfect- the water pressure in the shower was very low & the water pipes were very noisy, but this did not really matter much for one night. The location is very pretty & a... More

My husband and i spent 2 nights at the Mary Arden Inn over the bank holiday weekend. I had read the reviews before i booked and was pleased by first impressions, room was clean and the location was great, a 3.5 mile walk along the canal takes you directly into the center of stratford and Mary Arden farm is just...

We arrived early evening on a Saturday night for dinner. The building itself has lots of character, and we sat in the well room. It's a bit of a corridor room, but pleasant enough. When we arrived, there was a good number of pissed up locals, some screaming babies, plus a small number of out-of-towners (tourists). The menu is absolutely... More

We had booked last minute so there was not a lot of choice for the Easter weekend. When my wife phoned to book the room we were told £95, my wife said this was too much and thanks but no thanks... They then immediately dropped it to £80.. I think this is referred to as "trying it on".. Anyway.. When... More
