I took my daughters and my parents for afternoon tea at the Church St Townhouse and was delighted with my choice. They do require 24 hrs notice (although tbh I only booked the evening before). Tea was a dainty selection of finger sandwiches, scones with jam and pots of real clotted cream, and a selection of wonderful cakes (eclairs, banana... More

Myself and husband ate here for the first time over the bank holiday weekend for dinner. This place came on a recommendation from or friends who live lovely. The place was busy as loads of people enjoying bubbly by the bar. But dining part was cosy, however, it might be worth asking for the table in the further dining part,... More

Good atmosphere but rather extravagant menu, food was good but served cold and no real attempt made by the manager to compensate us for this. Once my food was served I had to eat it after all my guests had finished theirs - shame really. As a local not a tourist I will not go back there - there are... More

Dear Jack123_13 Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts on trip advisor. You can probably see from the lack of responses on my trip advisor pages that although i follow the reviews I am not a massive fan of the forum itself. It is, however a widely used tool for customers and I respect that people take... More

Excellent food and well presented. Service is slow and staff are function able rather than friendly. Can be a bit noisy so ask for table away from the bar area. Pricey but worth it.

Natalie was a credit to the owners nothing was to much trouble even if we changed our... More

I only seem to write reviews of places when I go on holiday, never on my own doorstep. So I though I would change that. And The Church Street townhouse is on my doorstep. Well not quite, but I can definitely walk there from my house. Although Mrs Griffiths would never walk there as when we go out for dinner... More

We enjoyed an early dinner before the theatre here. The early evening set menu is very good value and has a choice of 3 items per course. Service was prompt and the food was well cooked and presented. Atmosphere is light and airy, and location in the heart of Stratford.

The restaurant and accommodation are in a quiter part of central Stratford on Avon but in walking distance of bars and the theatre (other main hotels are close by). The interior of the restaurant/bar is tasteful and comfortable, with soft lighting, modern kitchen hatch area, mismatched tables and chairs and oppulent soft furnishings. The waiting staff are all presented well... More

We dined here for my birthday and it was just my husband and I. The restaurant was full yet the lay out of the restaurant area made it very intimate, it did not feel over crowded. The food was excellent, all 3 courses. The staff were very attentive. The decor was simple yet chic. After our meal we sat in... More
