Eating at Bentleys is as much of a tradition for me as going to Stratford itself - and I've been doing that for 16 years. The standard menu is reliable pub grub, but I highly recommend checking out the specials. With a different soup, quiche, and entree every day, the menu never gets boring.

We walked down the street from our B&B and decided to try Bentleys. It was wonderful! I had a huge salad and my husband had the special -- which was cheaper than my salad -- and included Manhattan clam chowder, crab salad pita sandwich, and a Greek pasta salad.

For lunch we ordered the hamburger with a side salad and the reuben with fries. Everything tasted good. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. I would not have wanted to sit in the dark pub, especially on a beautiful summer day. Our server was very friendly but service was unusually slow.

I had a Bison burger and my wife had chicken salad. Plenty of food and great value for lunchtime. We sat outside until the heavens opened and waitress suggested we move closer to building. Very busy place but make sure you get early before the theatre goer rush hour.

The place was hopping early on a Saturday night and I took this for a good sign. The extensive menu had little to offer a vegetarian but the seasonal roasted beet salad sounded promising and I decided to stay. Despite appearing to be the only waitress on duty, my server remained pleasant and unflappable and I was served in a... More

Was here for dinner because there was an hour wait at the restaurant we wanted to go to. The service was fine and the menu was fairly extensive, including some interesting dishes. Atmosphere was like a typical bar & grill; OK for families. The food left a bit to be desired. I had what was supposed to be one of... More

These accommodations suited 2 families of 4 in the 2 story lofts & 2 couples in the annex. Even tho rooms were above a popular bar & restaurant no sound penetrated the walls. Free parking was a bonus. This is a great option for families w/kids.

We got into Bentley's at around 10:00 for a very late dinner. As a type A personality, I dislike places where you have to sit yourself as it leaves room for confusion. Once we finally decided on a table, it took a very long time to get a waitress to come to our table. In fact, we had an off-duty... More

We like to go there before dinner for a drink because of the terrasse. Fair choice of wine and beer. Even local beer. This time it was after theatre and we enjoys it as well. Service is friendly and smiley.

Ate here twice, both times pre-theatre. Ordered the quiche special both times, and both times it was wonderful. I may return to try the pub pies or the five cheese Mac and cheese, both of which my companions ate and loved. Very busy pre theatre but unlike many of the highly rated Stratford restaurants it is quite spacious with lots... More
