My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner this year and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We had wanted to try the Prune for a very long time but just never got around to it. Now we have and we will definitely go back. The service was excellent from the greeting at the door to the good bye and... More

Three of us had dinner, and very much liked the prix fixe menu. The starters that we had, all the same, were amazingly good. The mid-course risotto, which one of us had with a spinach salad as a dinner, was excellent. The duck and the Cornish hen were also excellent. Where we had the problem was that the wines, ordered...

After the theatre we dined at The Prune. The back room provides an airy and comfortable atmosphere for diners. For appetizers we both ordered squid, an excellent choice For the entrees we enjoyed the muscovy duck and charred sirloin which were excellent. The only disappointment for us was the side potato dish. We were looking forward to a more substantial... More

Try to book a table overlooking the garden... the room is bright and spacious. The menu has more than a few winners.

The Old Prune is in a converted older house, divided into three or four rooms of different sizes. We have only eaten in the large room in the rear of the restaurant, which has an abundance of windows overlooking a small patio. It is a charming restaurant with excellent food. For a main course we had ribeye, which was perfectly... More

Special birthday for the bride and wanted to take her to a nice place for dinner. This was the spot. Restaurant is nicely laid out with plenty of room between table. Service was top notch. The food was very, very good. Did not feel rushed. Price is high but well worth it.

We visited The Prune as we have during past visits to Stratford. Without a doubt the food as prepared and served is excellent and imaginative. The decor is beautiful, and the staff caring and accommodating - and I specifically want to thank Vivian and Regan for their wonderful service and going to the nth degree. When my 97 year old...

My fiancee and I went to The Prune for an early pre-show dinner; our reservation was at 5:30 and we didn't get out of there until after 7:30. We started to worry, a little, by the end of the meal, about making it to the theatre in time, but the restaurant managed to get us out with just enough time... More

Our dinner at The Prune was one of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. It is expensive but worth the money. Favourite dishes in our group of five were: smoked trout, risotto, mint pea soup and skate. Good wine list and fantastic passionfruit mojito. The setting was gorgeous and the service was stellar.
