Ok, so it was Mother's Day and the place was heaving and so we purposefully booked a very late table for our lunch, however, after placing our order, we got totally forgotten - an hour's wait for our starters and then another hour's wait for our Main course. We didn't get to have a pudding as after 20 minutes of... More

A beautiful place full of attention to detail and friendly care. It is unusual to find both a warm and inviting place with lovely hosts. Each room is individually decorated to a high standard. Food is excellent and all local produce.

Booked to stay one night to celebrate a birthday. The room we had was called the old beams - very nice bed, room decent size as was bathroom. Only slight negative I would say about the particular accommodation we stayed in was that the bathroom was a little tired and would be better tiled as walls were water stained. Also... More

Great food and pub with rooms, very high standard - but you pay for this, its your choice and watch out for a 10% gratuity on the room bill as well as food and drink - most strange! Nice atmosphere and a very relaxing place to stay. Walks from the door too!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Excellent menu and wine list, really helpful staff and beautiful, character-filled, comfortable rooms. Beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again. A great place to get away from it all....

I had been recommended the Howard Arms by several friends as a perfect place to stay if visiting Stratford on Avon. We stayed one night and had dinner and breakfast. The room was spacious, comfortable and equipped with all the necessary add ons, including iPod facility and internet access. The dinner menu had a good choice with locally sourced ingredients...
