Rich and flavourful dishes on the No 44 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.

No 44 at The Arden Hotel 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.

    Wonderful food, service and surroundings! the menu is excellent and offers a lovely choice of tapas style A La carte food; ideal for pre-theatre

    The food and the service are both excellent, and it is just over the road from the theatre. Great for theatre goers. And the pre-theatre menu is spot on. BUT there is no-where to put your coat and no-one ever offers to take it. On my last visit the maitre d asked if i wanted anything to drink whilst i was removing my coat. I awkwardly tried to get my scarf in the pocket, then looked around vaguely for somewhere to put it and in the end draped the scarf and coat over the back of my chair. There wasn't even a spare chair to put it on. All this whilst she was hovering for my drink order. I know that a lot of diners are residents in the hotel and so do not have a coat, but surely us non-residents should be catered for also?

    Hugely overpriced for quite mediocre food.

    The food was amazing, we had the shared menu and for 2 of us with smaller appetites it was ideal. Each dish was delicious and the waiter who served us was very pleasant and cheerful. The desserts were beautifully presented and gorgeous. Ten out of ten for the whole experience. This is our 2nd visit and there will be others??

    No atmosphere, the waitresses didn’t understand what I asked for. Probably the worst afternoon tea I have had

    Disappointing in all aspects. Nobody to greet you on arrival - we walked aimlessly around the restaurant looking for a member of staff (as did every other person who arrived after us) Afternoon tea was served on a coffee table with low couches either side, not comfortable to be eating at and no other table was available. Sandwiches were very basic, ham and cheese, prawn, chicken, egg mayo, (nothing like what is on their sample menu) bread wasn't as fresh as it could be and no butter on it either, and it wasn't served on the usual cake stand/display stand as we expected just basically a plate of sandwiches. We ordered two regular and 2 savoury afternoon teas - (the savouries were nicer than the sandwiches).but the cakes all arrived at least 15 minutes before the savouries. Tea and coffee was fine but when we ordered drinks we weren't given any drink or wine lists we were just offered what was in the waitresses head. we were very shocked to be charged £11.35 for a glass of wine - we thought all drinks were very overpriced so our bill for 4 afternoon teas and 1 drink each came to £146.52. Our waitress was very nice but was run off her feet serving all tables on her own. Definitely wouldn't recommend this place. We felt very cheated - this is definitely not worth the price and is very overstated.

    Had the most wonderful afternoon at the Arden hotel for afternoon tea! Had a mix of the savoury and sweet options. Served by a lovely lady called May who was extremely helpful and wonderful! Food was 10/10. Service was 10/10! Couldn’t recommend them more! Lovely atmosphere with a lovely lady singing acoustic tunes!

    Delicious food! Very attentive service. Could have had a better choice of adult non alcoholic drinks (e.g. Seedlip, etc). Lovely evening.
