Spent the weekend in Stratford Upon Avon - Wetherspoons is great as you can always rely on food and drinks to be served throughout the day when other establishment are opening later or closing early.

This Wetherspoons is large and spacious, a quick turnaround on service for food/drink and staff are friendly. Would recommend.

have no qualms with the food, well cooked and presented.
My concern was with the staff. No one to seat us and no request to sign in for track and trace.
The notices said table service only so we waited and waited. Eventually I asked if we should order at the bar but was told no they would send someone to take our order. After about 5 minutes a very surly man came over and told me to 'put a mask on and order at the bar'.
Following our main course I wanted to order a dessert. I waited a while but no one came so I tentatively approached the bar. The barman told me to sit down and wait for someone to take our order. I mentioned that I'd just ordered our main course at the bar but he just told me to sit down.
In fairness the female staff were quite pleasant it's the male staff who need some customer service training.
For a lunchtime it was very quiet so no real need for brusqueness with the customers - not that there is ever a need for being surly and rude.

Like most things in Stratford, this place is just a little bit classier than the norm. Yes Wetherspoons have a terrible reputation and yes they are cheap but this pub is really quite nice. There is a light and airy conservatory style area at the back, a nice sheltered smoking area and the drink and food choices are good. It's also situated right in the heart of Stratford so is ideal for a few pre/post dinner drinks.

I am 10 years old and I had visited weatherspoons today for a day out with my nan. I had fish and chips which was nice. Then I was given a banana which was mouldy. It had a liquid texture and smelt like vinegar putting me off the whole banana. I was trying to be healthy. I wish they had taken me to Miller and carter.. but a girl can only dream. And to top it off the table hadn’t been cleaned.

We were having a pleasant evening until the rude bouncers demanded ID (of a group in which youngest was 25), not at all polite about it, even questioning one of us about date of birth... then one of our friends laughed... yes in a pub which was playing the football he laughed and got ordered to be quiet!!!!! Safe to say this party of 12 decided to take our business else where for the rest of the evening!

My wife and myself paid a visit to this pub last Sunday. Although it was a little difficult to find a table (busy place = popular place!) it was well worth the wait. You order your food yourself at the bar and it arrived extremely quickly, despite being very busy. It was well cooked and piping hot!! Excellent service, excellent food!! Highly recommended it if you find yourself in Stratford!!

Oh, my wife REALLY enjoyed her Pimms!!

like to visit wetherspoons when am in anew area so called in to the golden bee in stratford,was not impressed only when in for a drink like most spoons can be hard to get served when i did get the barman attention i orderd 2 bottles of wheat beer but he asked what the bottle looked like as he was new not really worried about that as everyone has to learn,what realy got my goat up was the state of the tables staff made no attempt to clean dishes away from the tables on one occasion staff took some dishes away but only took some of them away short time later served food at the next table and walked past the dirty table with out the rest of the dishes thatwere on the table,must not be able to multitask, dont think i would go back to this spoons

We visited the Golden Bee with friends on Tuesday 24th September 2019 during a four day visit to Stratford - Upon - Avon. Wetherspoons usually works with the nature of the building to give a complementary ambience. Considering the beautiful Tudor frontage, the interior could be any modern pub in Britain and lacked any real atmosphere.
However, as always, the beer was excellent and I opted for a pint of Sharp's Doom Bar Amber Ale.
For our meal the four of us chose the steak dinner meal deal which included a bottle of wine for every two diners, hence two bottles of wine.
The steak was cooked to perfection and being cut thick was extra succulent. It came with chips, peas, tomato, mushroom, peas and optional creamy peppercorn sauce. All in all, a really good evening meal, cooked well and excellent value. We would recommend eating here.

Dropped in here while visiting Stratford-upon-Avon with our grandkids.
It was a busy lunch time with few spare or clean tables and we had to settle for one that we cleaned up ourselves.
The food arrived at reasonable time, but was very average looking and the taste seemed to match.
This was a great example of “you get what you pay for”.... and I think we will pay somewhere else in future.

I usually think you can’t beat Wetherspoons for value, but not on this occasion. Ordered 2 lamb shanks and fish and chips. When placing our order we were told there was no fish and chips available. Ordered scampi instead. When our food came one of the lamb shanks looked terrible. It looked like it had been thrown onto the dish. Now this is one of the more expensive dishes on the menu so you expect it to look ok. There was hardly any gravy and 2, yes 2 roasted veg on the plate! No one came and asked if our meal was acceptable and when we were finished it took well over half an hour for our plates to be cleared. Seems like they were just interested in clearing tables that had been vacated in order to seat more customers. I don’t expect to sit and look at dirty plates for that length of time! We weren’t alone in what were thinking as I overheard the waiter apologising several times to customers about complaints with their food. Stratford is such a lovely place but unfortunately this Wetherspoons isn’t the best! Won’t be eating here again!
