Food & Drink

Stratford-upon-Avon offers an excellent choice of quality and unique places to eat and drink, from pubs, cafe bars, take aways and tea-rooms to historic inns and charming candle-lit restaurants.

Othello’s Bar and Brasserie is set in a 16th Century Grade 1 listed building. Taste some of the restaurant’s contemporary English cuisine made from exceptional locally sourced produce and wash down with a glass of wine from their extensive wine list.

The RSC Rooftop Restaurant and Riverside Cafe will be a welcome addition to the Stratford-upon-Avon dining scene. The Riverside Café is the ideal place for a tea or coffee and a light snack, or an informal bite to eat. The Rooftop Restaurant is ideal for a pre-show or a leisurely meal and has unrivalled views over the Bancroft Gardens and River Avon.

Or why not sample Stratford’s unrivalled range of gastro and dining pubs including The Encore & The One Elm. The Dirty Duck is a very popular pub amongst theatre-goers or anyone who enjoys a friendly drink in a picturesque pub. The pub is housed in a 15th century building and has been a pub since the 1700s. Pop in for a pre-theatre drink and book a table for supper after the show. Chances are you will see half the cast of the play enjoying a post theatre drink. Visit the Actors Bar which is covered in autographed photos of RSC actors going back over the decades.

If you fancy morning coffee or a delicious afternoon tea then Stratford has a host of delightful and award-winning tea rooms to sample including Bensons, Hathaway’s Tea Rooms and Havilands.
