Great Food But There's Something Missing

We couldn't fault the food here, it was delicious and of great quality. Maybe it was because we were upstairs but there was no atmosphere or ambience and we left feeling the food was superb but couldn't help being a little disappointed. Service was good at it was not over-priced in any way but it... read more

We have eaten at No.9 on a number of occasions, and it is reliably the best meal you can get in Stratford. Three of us had a two course lunch yesterday for £13.50 a head. The service was exceptional and the food exceptional. In a town where mediocrity rules, and menus rarely change, this restaurant offers original, interesting and exciting... More

We always end up back here not for lack of trying to find other places to get a roast just through not ever being impressed with them. I have had better elsewhere but not in the stratford area. It gets quite busy and sometimes there is a wait but overall its a lovely place to grab a good dinner.

After a fairly dissapointing meal on our first night in Stratford we decided to try this small restaurant before going to the RSC at The Swan. We were surprised that the first floor dining room as really cosy and the staff so friendly yet professional; but the food surpassed all expectations especially for the price they charge. We had 2x... More

Been going here for years but haven't reviewed before. Should have really because it has always been and still is the best place to eat in Stratford. Popped in for lunch, the 'Plate of the Day' for £9 Inc a glass of wine was very tempting.. Roast Rump of Pork with wild mushroom risotto, but we plumped for the 2... More

Lunch with a friend at Stratford's Number 9 Church Street was a delightful experience. I can't think of a single negative comment! The premises is small and cosy, a tourist's dream of Stratford, an attractive historic building in a beautiful street of timbered frontages. A warm welcome from the busy staff was followed by good service throughout, on a very... More

My mother and I are here tonight as part of a Groupon deal. We had a 5 course tasting menu which was gorgeous. Everything was so tasty and lots of unusual flavours which went together really well. The two waitresses were also lovely. Thank you

Having dined here before I was looking forward to returning for their tasting menu. We ate mid week and the restaurant had a steady pace of people coming and going which created a very pleasant dining experience. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a cosy feel to it. The waiting staff were welcoming and it was nice to meet... More
