2. The Opposition British, Modern restaurant in Stratford upon Avon 13 Sheep Street - CV37

6. Loxleys British, Traditional restaurant in Stratford upon Avon 3 Sheep St - CV37
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”.
