We visited for a pre theatre light meal, food and service was exemplary. The spicy butternut squash soup was particularly gorgeous, when the bill came we were pleasantly surprised. Will definitely come again next time we're in Stratford.

Relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff and good menu. Chose rhubarb sapphire for a refreshing change and indeed it was lovely for a warm afternoon. Chose the crispy sticky duck salad and king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine; food came out quickly and was very tasty however, the 'sauce' on the linguine was watery than expected and the salad wasn't what I...

Our order was taken swiftly, however our starter was then brought out before we even got our drinks! I work in the industry and am aware that this should... More

We ended up here on a hot sunny day this month and everywhere else was packed. Ended up paying a lot for small portions so won't be returning when we return to Stratford we would go back to Wildwood kitchen for value for money....
