I have visited The Encore previously but that was only for a drink, however this time we wanted a light lunch as we had just arrived in Stratford. We ordered a sharing platter for £16.95, can't remember the exact name of it but it was meats with pickled veg. It arrived on a slate platter and to be honest although... More

Visited on a Wednesday evening. A pretty standard menu, with a few things better than burger and chips. I had large crispy duck salad, and a side of fries. I'm glad I had the fries, as the salad was nice, but hardly filling, and at £11.95 for the main, not cheap. A good location, and on a Summer evening, it... More

Cannot comment on food service poor-we were a party of 4 couples (in our 40s) and they would not seat us even thought place was half empty! We were smartly dressed, sober and not a bunch of giggle teenagers - didn't bother to go there for these rest of our visit.....

Lovely location, nice interior, pleasant staff, TERRIBLE food. One person had mushroom soup that tasted and looked like light grey water. The other had pizza in which the dough wasn't cooked, resulting in inedible food. Ridiculous prices for the worst food i've ever eaten.

This restaurant does not pretend to be 'fine dining' but has an excellent menu with something for everyone including the most discerning pallet. Great service by well trained staff who actually really care about service.

Walked past with some friends on a day-trip and didn't regret it. Great staff, great beer and the burgers were wonderful. Chips were super tasty too!

The restaurant was not busy on the Sunday evening we ate there and as a result lacked any atmosphere. However, the food was well cooked and tasty and we enjoyed our meal.

We have visited here a couple of times with our grandson when visiting Stratford & each time although we need more room & a high chair the staff could not be more friendly & helpful. The menu is quite varied & the prices are on par with other eateries. The food has always been good (try the crispy duck salad)... More

We managed to get a table outside and as the weather was lovely and warm this was an added bonus. The waitress was very helpful and prompt to take our order. We watched the world go by whilst enjoying view of the river and cooling down with a cold Peroni. The food arrived and was very nice and tasty and... More
