Evening meal. Charming and attentive staff. Food very nice and well presented. A varied menu with something for everyone and very reasonably priced. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

I honestly don't know where to begin! The "welcome", well the waitress looked at us as if she was going us a favour. We had booked but she didn't take our name or anything. We then ordered drinks and food, I had to ask 3 times for the drinks, I mean a bottle of water and a glass of wine... More

Had to write this review after a very disappointing meal at The Encore. It was our fourth visit ( we usually eat here when we come to Stratford for the theatre). Previous experiences have been really positive but the quality of the food badly let it down this time. The vegetarian mushroom and feta pie (described as accompanied by asparagus... More

If you are hoping to pay too much for indifferent service and poor food then you just HAVE to go to this restaurant. Be sure to choose from a tired menu and grab an uncomfortable seat before looking forward to the sheer wonderment of the slop put before you. Whatever you do, please make sure to ask them to overcook... More

Had a late Sunday lunch here, food was very good but we thought a little pricey. But we are unsure of the average price in the area to compare it to. Service was first class and as stated the food was excellent, well presented with veggies on the side. Only had soft drinks.

The restaurant looks good and the food is great but it is a little pricey. The service was on the slow side and could have done with being a smidge more friendly. The thing that let it down the most was a complete lack of atmosphere.

As a CAMRA member, I regard Timothy Taylor's Landlord as a decent, steady drink .. but at £4.55 a pint !!!! It took a sheepish manager 10 minutes to dig out a dusty statutory price list (not displayed at the bar), before refunding me. Other such standard ales were around £3.50 a pint, so what is going on ??

We decided to eat here cos we had eaten at another place with the same menu. We waited 20 mins before our drinks arrived, an that was after prompting the waitress an reordering. Food courses came fairly quickly but the restaurant was quiet. Nice food but shoddy service means id be reluctant to return.

Food here was fine but the desserts were extraordinary. Loved the strawberry Eton mess and the sticky toffee pudding in particular. The art and tables upstairs connect with Shakespearian plays, but make sure you stop in the women's bathroom upstairs to see how the stalls are painted to look like book spines! A true delight.
