“Should have gone elsewhere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Stopped opposite Stokes and wanted an afternoon snack,little on the menu was suitable,I ordered Croque Monsieur,not bad and on normal white bread.My wife asked for a Ham and tomato sandwich on brown bread,firstly the bread was hard and stale,the bottom layer being
3/4 inch thick and the top piece about 1/4 inch thick.,having struggling though one pice she open the sandwich and found the ham had brown streaks though it,The Waitress (a very young girl spoke with the kitchen and said that it must have been near the bone as all of the cutting is done early morning.
The waitress did not charge for the sandwich,but it spoiled our trip to Stockbridge

“A Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had a wonderful lunch today (13July13) at Stokes of Stockbridge. We were a table of 10, aged from 8 to 80! The food was great quality and worth the money. All the staff were really attentive and friendly and were always on hand for our needs. The restaurant environment is lovely, fresh and has a bistro feel. We had a superb lunch, lovely ambiance and made a great day in Stockbridge. Highly recommended.

“Redefining Ham, Egg and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

On a quiet Saturday evening we received immaculate service, and food of the very highest quality. I started with pork and apple croquettes with a cauliflower mustard picalilli. The picalilli was delicate, really allowing the flavour and textures of the vegetables to shine though, and really setting off the croquettes. The breaded knuckle of ham with glazed pineapple, fried egg and thrice-fried chips; simply delightful contrasts of flavour and texture, taking thehokey old 70s idea of ham with a bit of pineapple and turning it into something rather special. My dessert can best be described as "five things to do with rhubarb" - my favourite dessert fruit - and added peppered meringue for a crunchy, chewy, mouth livening experience. My companion had crab roulet, lamb, and coconut marshmallow. Three courses, you understand, not all on one plate. Not a smidgeon was left. All washed down with a pleasant, light, bottle of red wine (the "Fat B*st*rd"). All at prices which make London - three beautifully cooked, freshly made courses eac, a bottle of red, two-g-and-t's - £80. Wonderful value. Would I eat here again? You bet. Would I drive 60 miles for the pleasure. Undoubtedly.

“Great spot for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We dropped into Stokes of Stockbridge for lunch on a sunny Friday. The restaurant has a small number of outside tables which are ideal when the English weather "plays ball".

Food-wise the menu offers a range of freshly cooked options. The two items we had were very well cooked and presented, and from observing other tables things look very consistent.

A nice restaurant that we'd certainly return to if we were in the area.

“Best eggs benedict!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Have visited for several breakfasts and a few afternoon cake stops - always pleasant staff, great atmosphere, and superb food.
Good selection of teas, and the cakes are not just the run of the mill - some interesting tastes. The breakfast menu is lovely - they really do the best eggs benedict, yummy all the way!
