Restaurant description

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.

    Excellent midweek deal. The choice and quality of the meals was really good and service fantastic. The location and atmosphere could not be faulted and we were given a genuinely warm welcome.

    We had a lovely meal, the restaurant was empty at 5pm so was asked if we would like to eat downstairs, that was fine with us. The booking was easy on line. Recommendations were fine. The staff member could have taken the opportunity to offer drinks more often rather than waiting Forbes to ask. You are having refurb and to be fair it's needs. Lovely pub, lovely environment. Look forward to seeing the refurb.

    The pub food was tasty and the service was excellent. The bathrooms were worth a visit.. interesting decor and very clean. There was a restaurant upstairs that I would have liked to be sat at.. so ask for it as it is bright and has good views.
