Fabulous meal and service. If you are visiting Stratford and don’t mind a 15 minute scenic drive and want a top quality meal or just a really nice coffee and a snack you must visit this restaurant. Very highly recommended.

our stay at the Stratford Mountain House was a refreshing break. We enjoyed a fabulous evening meal and an accessible walk along a well maintained mountain track close to the hotel. The hotel room was exceptionally clean and well maintained, the bed was very comfortable.

Fantastic service - we were greeted at the door. The quality of food is amazing, and the serving sizes are generous. Nestled up the mountain amongst the native forest, the views and ambiance are second to none.
