Disappointed

Visited at lunch time with relatives from Leicestershire. It was our first visit to the Encore for something to eat and was disappointed with the menu and also we thought it was a little expensive. We waited a considerably time for our meals to be served and the wait was not worth it. Meals very... read more

We popped in for a lunch and were quickly led upstairs to the restaurant area. We ordered drinks and then had a menu given to us... The menu had nothing of any kind of lunch time meal on this and was very expensive. We managed to find something we could have for lunch after about ten minutes of reading, when... More

I went here with my husband for dinner and everything was spot on. The food was really good and they do mini desserts with a hot drink which was perfect after our main course!! The staff were really friendly and as attentive as they could be considering how busy it got. I will definitely go back after such a nice... More

Out for the day (Sunday) with family and dog. Sat outside for a late morning coffee, eventually decided we were hungry. Staff found us table inside, made us very welcome. Menu was varied and included Sunday Roast - most of us went for that. Good value considering the time and location. Will go again.

We stayed in Stratford for a couple of nights and went to The Encore both days. First evening just for drinks, great lively atmosphere. Next day we had lunch which was very delicious and very reasonable. Worth a visit if you are in Stratford.

The decor of the Encore is really cosy and lovely. I have visited here before with friends and had a lovely roast dinner. However, I recently visited with my boyfriend and we thought we would try out their regular menu. The service was awful and my boyfriend asked to see a cocktail/drinks menu as we were sat upstairs and the... More
