A very large group of us went for a celebration meal. Although we had booked a late table they were happy to accommodate us. Service was very prompt, friendly and knowledgable. All our food arrived after only a short wait and was delicious. Not too pricey either. Only down side was that for large parties you get split across a... More

Good experience over all but the corned beef hash main, although tasty and well presented, contained only a few strands of meat. Desserts were lovely.

We visited Stratford and there is so many places to eat and drink . We just had a ride on the canal and spotted the encore on the way back up the basin . It looked inviting with the chairs and tables outside . We decided to have a drink. There was a good choice of real ales and cider... More

Luckily, it was a nice sunny day so we were fortunate to sit outside for lunch, overlooking the marina. Food was good, beer was good, service was good. The interior is equally welcoming. Shame we ran out of time to visit of an evening but we will next time.

Poor front of house welcome. Stood waiting whilst someone went back and forth past us without an acknowledgement. Could be a local thing as the same happened to us and others in the evening too. When eventually seated and our South African waiter took over service was fantastic. We ordered a truffle and mushroom parfait with brioche and tasty scallops.... More

We only had a sandwich and a drink here at lunch time but the atmospheres was great and it proved a very popular place as it has lovely views of the rivers. You can also sit outside if the weather is nice and the restaurant upstairs is lovely.
