Stratford upon Avon Restaurants and Dining

(Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire, England, UK)

View of local coffee shop in the town centreThe town of Stratford upon Avon is well laid out, and wherever you are, you can be sure that a selection of restaurants and cafes are no more than just a short stroll away. Various public houses provide a good alternative, specialising in hearty pub grub and real ales, being based conveniently near to the town's theatres.

Those dining out at a local pub will find the Rose and Crown on Sheep Street being especially charismatic and historic, dating back more than 400 years and known for its flagstone floor, traditional fare and popular Sunday carvery. Of a similar age, Stratford upon Avon's acclaimed Garrick Inn on Wood Street features its very own restaurant, capable of accommodating more than 50 diners.

Where to Eat

Eateries and restaurants are in good supply around Bridge Street, Chapel Street and along Sheep Street, where they are nestled alongside small shops, inns and cafes.

For a spicy curry or tikka masala, check out the Thespians Indian Restaurant in the Waterside area of Stratford upon Avon, while for a taster of French cuisine and something quite different to fish and chips, the Cafe Rouge on Sheep Street is worth considering.
