I only went there for a drink but enjoyed the atmosphere very much. The bar staff was extremely professional and pleasant. I did not taste the food but it looked good!

We popped in yesterday whilst shopping in stratford. We come over every Dec to do xmas shopping and stay overnight at a hotel. This is always our choice for lunch. I had the beer battered fish and chips and other half had the burger. Tea coffee too all great. Just wish the place was nearer to us!

Four of us called in for a pre - theatre meal. We had not booked and although busy we were shown to a table upstairs immediately. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Service was efficient and speedy. We had no complaints about the food although my squid starter was a little mean portion wise! We had starter and mains and four... More

Staff were inattentive: We had to clear a table of dirty dishes to enable us to have a seat - we watched two staff gossip for several minutes ignoring this task. Then we were astounded that nobody came to take our order and when a staff member was flagged down we were told we had to order at the bar.... More

I was looking for somewhere to have lunch in Stratford upon Avon and did some research on line. I liked the look of the Encore as it seemed to offer something for all tastes on the menu. I was meeting my sister and daughter for lunch we all live within a 15 mile radius of Stratford. On arrival the staff... More

We booked a table here while visiting Statford-Upon-Avon for the weekend...we had tried to book for some of the smaller (more expensive) restaurants and could not get a table anywhere so have to admit this was a last resort. Well, we were not disappointed with Encore as the service and quality/choice of food were excellent even though there was a... More

What can I say. After having a terrible experience at the Vintner the evening before we were looking for something better and we found it here. The staff very welcoming and our server Anastasia was perfect. She was intelligent and caring for our needs. My husbands steak was rare as opposed to the medium rare which was ordered. Immediately the... More
