We popped into town on a sunny day to mooch and grab some lunch, whilst turning the corner by the Bancroft we saw some seating outside the Encore, historically a great local pub but in recent times becoming good for food. I think her name was Debbie a rare English waitress in Stratford who took the order and was fantastic,... More

On a warm summers day the outside seating area was busy, but a table was being cleared as we passed, so we stood and waited. Having sat we were quickly asked if we wanted drinks, however it took a long time for these to be delivered - by this time we were ready to order food, but had to wait... More

6 of us met up for dinner this evening. The menu for me isn't very inspiring, but the burger I had, although very small, was very tasty. The food took almost an hour to be served and the place was not busy, but when it was, only 5 of the 6 meals were served. The waiter told us the kitchen... More

I ate here with my friend and daughter. We were given a lovely table with a view of the river basin. The menu was quite extensive and hard to choose from as most dishes sounded tempting!! Lee White has recently taken over this restaurant and has the perfect hosting skills... attentive, but not invasive!! We left feeling it was great... More

No experience of the food, just the bar. We visited twice after having been for a meal elsewhere and wanting a nightcap before heading back to the hotel. The first time we were turned away as they had stopped serving (10.25). We thought they must close early on a Sunday evening. On our 2nd visit, we ordered our very expensive... More

This eatery was recommended to me by a friend who used to own a restaurant; so he knows his grub. He is also quite a big unit and I was looking forward to a substantial feed. Me and the mehm sahib arrived early doors on a Monday evening at 6.45pm. It was quite busy with some people dining and others... More

Food was average. Poor customer service, waitress didn't offer any other sauces and no check backs, felt like it was more just give us a money rather than a nice homely atmosphere. Food overpriced. Will look elsewhere in then future .

This restaurant has a prime location by Waterside and on the approach to the town centre. We visited yesterday and everything was shocking: the service, the high prices, the lack of cleanliness and toilet paper in the loos. We had to ask for everything we needed and even when we did manage to attract a waitress and ask where our... More

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
