I dined here as part of a group of 20 people. I was very suprised by the quality of the meals, as i had never dined here before and expected a burger menu. I ordered the eye fillet steak with vege stack, this was cooked perfectly. All our meals at each of the tables came out together. Good service, very enjoyable meal.

Our meal was some way from being the best of our holiday. A lamb burger was OK but the vegetarian option, a bizarre combination of vol-au-vent and chips, was all but inedible.

This seems to be the best restaurant Stratford has to offer. It is in a good location, friendly staff and the meal I had was excellent. Not all places open 7 days a week in this town but this place does

Arriving late into Stratford on Friday 19th January 2013 meant our idea of a leisurely shower, drinks and nibbles in the motel room before heading out to eat was not quite how things turned out. After grabbing our room key at 19:45 and hastily unloading the contents of the car we headed into Statford and to Colonel Molone's Restaurant and Bar.

Thinking we might be just a tad too late we were delighted to find out that the restaurant was still open. A charming young lady showed us to our table and brought us menus. She could tell we needed a beer and within a minute we both had 'a cold one' in hand.

The restaurant is unusual in that it HAS got the mix of pub and restaurant right. The right mix is very hard to achieve. The pub was on one side and the restaurant on the other, separated by a clever placement of a 'wooden fence sort of divider'. It was very well done and both the pub and dining area worked equally well.

The menu was varied and had a couple of specials too. I had pan fried blue cod, on a Mediterranean salad of egg plant, olives, sun dried tomatoes and mussels dressed in red wine honey mustard vinaigrette. My partner had grilled mustard crust pork loin served with a vegetable frittata and rocket and cherry tomato salad with tomato relish. The pork was $26 and the Blue Cod $32.

The food would have been very much at home in a upmarket city restaurant: it was simply stunning and delicious.

Just go, you'll love this unique place - and the beer and wine selection is good too!

It was a cold, wet, windy weekend when we passed by on the way home, and we thought about other times we'd been there, and stopped in by the fire and had some comfort food; pasta. Wanted to stay and not go outside again lol!! Good service, great food, nice surroundings. Will come back.
