An elegant fine dining spot in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, the Waterside Brasserie is a majestic string in the bow of the 4-star Arden Hotel. The freshest, seasonal ingredients are incorporated into a menu of modern European dishes, served in a chic and contemporary setting by the River Avon.

Rich and flavourful dishes on the Waterside Brasserie menu include duck ‘two ways’, combining roast duck breast with confit duck leg pie, with accompanying chicory and orange puree. There’s pan-fried hake with pearl barley risotto, crab gnocchi and a crab and ginger sauce, while desserts include a wickedly delicious chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream and a chocolate sauce.

The Waterside Brasserie in Stratford boasts its own sophisticated champagne bar. Large arched windows flood natural light into the restaurant’s pastel interior, creating a bright and relaxed dining space.

The Waterside Brasserie neighbours the Royal Shakespeare Company theatres, and looks out over the River Avon.

    We enjoyed the main course of fish and Puy lentils -delicious. The service was good - prompt and polite. Our only complaint was that the tables for two were too close together. One3 had to squeeze past to get to one's seat.

    Excellent food, as usual. The sea bream was especially good.
    Unfortunately, there was a problem with service: a little slow (which is not unusual here) but also they forgot entirely to bring one of the mains, so that it only came long after the other four. They were very apologetic, and spontaneously removed the 'discretionary' service charge, but of course such things ought not to happen at all. Nonetheless, we always enjoy our meals here and will be coming again.

    The restaurant and the ambiance was delightful, the staff were excellent and the food delicious. The only criticism I have is the lengthy wait for the main course.

    Very pleasant. Nice friendly waiter, nice food. Not the cheapest place in town, but reasonable.

    Good food but a bit pricey. Very convenient for pre-theatre dinner and you can go back for dessert and coffee post-show.

    We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. On arrival we both received complimentary champagne which was a nice touch.

    I fancied the 2 starters. Scallops and salmon. I asked if I could have the salmon as the main and the staff assured me it would be fine. I was pleased because I didn't fancy having a main for my dinner.

    I've been here nearly 5 times now, service is impeccable, food amazing and decor lush. Easily my favourite restaurant.
