Best braised short ribs ever

Service is great! Jambalaya was disappointing. Tastes like it's made with bbq sauce. Braised short ribs are to die for! Will definitely be back for more.

Every time I have the pleasure of visiting Stratford I make a key effort to visit Bentleys. I have never had anything I haven't more than loved and I highly doubt I ever will. The atmosphere is cozy and warm and the servers are attentive and polite

Great place to stay - interesting rooms, excellent value, wonderful patio right on the main street. Beer and bruschetta - my favourite! Enjoy - but remember that there are stairs to climb. Assistance with your bags is cheerfully provided, however, should you need it.

Casual atmosphere made Bentley's a great place to stop for a late lunch. Wait staff was great and food was fabulous. We had an appetizer dish called Antojitos and split a Cobb salad. Both of which were more than enough to satisfy our hunger.‬ Lots of beer selections including local Ontario beer. Added bonus they had free WiFi.

We enjoy Bentley's when we are with friends who want to have a good visit, a nice glass of wine and satisfying meal. The menu is varied and everything I have tried is tasty and inexpensive.Some week- end evenings feature a live band and attracts a livelier crowd. It is definitely a good choice for a casual night out.

We have come to Stratford for over 30 years. The first night we're in Stratford we head to Bentleys for Shepherd's Pie and one of the British beers or ales on tap or a Guiness on tap. It's a busy, fun place to visit I look forward to Shepherd's pie at Bentleys again in October 2015. Maybe we'll see you... More

Waitress was lovely, Soup was a bit salty, sandwich was tasty, french fries crisp and fresh, cobb salad: very nice. Two pots of water with two tea bags, and plastic milk containers on the bill were $5.90. Seriously. $5.90. Come on, it's water and a tea bag. $5.90?

We stopped here for lunch. We had not been here for a few years. Wow! Came in at 11:45am and by 12:10 there was not a seat left anywhere I could see. I ordered a Reuben sandwich and my wife a Burger with all the trimmings. Huge portions with fries, tasty, and freshly prepared. We are determined again to return... More

Stopped in on a recent visit for lunch for four.had chicken cutlets and Bison burger along with the Bistro burger. All came with house fries. Waitress was friendly but did not want to talk about facts just best fries in town, great chicken etc. more info would have been helpful. Standard pub fare clean facilities . Would go back again.

We've had many meals here over the years as we live in Stratford area. Not the top pick, but a good spot to hang out with a buddy for a few drinks and a meal.
