Something of a local lynchpin (for example, they sponsor the local food festival) – this well-run, two-floor operation is a stone’s throw from the RSC, and offers a versatile all-day menu from breakfast onwards. For a steak meal in particular, it’s one of the better options in town.

“One of the better pre-theatre places in Stratford” – this smart, two-floor, former clothes shop is barely a three-minute walk from the RSC. Even a reporter who felt the food was “nothing special” says “everything turned out well for a pleasant evening”.

In the “epicentre of restaurants for the hungry tourist or theatregoer”, this ex-clothes shop “deserves your serious consideration”, say fans. There were also reports of “average” or “poor value” food this year, but those “habitually choosing the pre-theatre set menu before a visit to the RSC” seem to find it “well cooked and attractively presented”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
