The bar and lounge used to be a busy place on the weekend. It was my first time in since it has become a 'Vintage Hotel' brand. While the latest facelift has left it brighter, it has lost some of the charm of what made...More

This was my 1st visit to this lovely restaurant. There was 11 family members for this dinner and the staff was kind enough to give us a private room. Right from the time you step into the building you notice it's old country charm. They...More

I had lunch here today with a group of 16 friends. We had reservations so the restaurant knew to expect us in addition to their normal lunch clientele. There was one waitress responsible for our ‘room’. A glaring oversight on managements part. It took her...More

Wide selection of excellent dishes. Flexible. Set in an attractive hotel in the centre of Stratford. Choice allows for "fancy" dining or just an excellent burger etc. Service is outstanding. Easy to access - reservations recommended. Perfect for before or after attending the Stratford Festival.More
