Just 5 minutes away from William Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, The Encore is housed in a refurbished 18th-century building, and serves modern British pub food with a Mediterranean twist. With plenty of windows allowing natural light, hardwood floors, a large bar, and cushioned seating, this gastro pub offers a warm getaway among the town’s boutiques and tourist attractions.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Encore menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Encore bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Encore is a 12-minute walk from Stratford-upon-Avon Railway Station.

    There was a mix up over table allocation which was uncomfortable and after being offered our favourite table and settling happily with the menu we were told to either move or leave swiftly as they had taken a large party booking. We weren't very happy. Food was OK though the menu ode red koftas are different and fewer than last yeR, also over cooked,

    Service was average. One waiter spoke very loudly which was annoying at times. Food at previous times was better than this last experience but would still recommend it to friends.
