We went here to have dinner. Extremely friendly staff, very nice and charming location, solid and decent English food, with a healty touch (steamed vegetables), big portions and a fair price. Recommended!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Had dinner here on Saturday night. The bar was very busy as was the eating area. It was a good job we had booked a table! Am pleased to say the service and food were excellent and the staff very attentive. Will definitely go again the next time we visit Stratford.

“Can't fault the food or service - delicious!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

A quick visit to SuA today and we were wondering what to do for dinner when we stumbled across this little gem. We were concerned that it was going to be a typical tourist trap - high prices, pretty surrounds, terrible food. However in this case I'm delighted to say that it was fantastic on all counts.

We were dining with our 2 young kids (baby, 3 year old). They had a perfectly sized, clean highchair available for baby. For our 3 year old they offered to make a kids sized portion of any main.

Service was friendly and fast. Atmosphere was welcoming and the history of the place was interesting. It was warm on a cold autumn evening.

I've already said it, but the food was delicious and the portions were so generous that we didn't have room for dessert. Prices were very reasonable too - around 10GBP a main.

Would we go there again or recommend it to others? In a heartbeat.
