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.

    Very average indeed. Lovely dining room, but with a two-piece music combo, playing, amplified, in the corner. The waitress had to shout to take the order. Not what I wanted for my Sunday lunch. Menu was about as unadventurous as it could be - steak, chicken, fish and chips, sea bream, burger and veg ravioli. Starter (mezze) was good, as was my wife's sea bream. My fish and chips were poor, cooked at too low a temperature, with a layer of uncooked batter covering the fish, The staff were very understanding and removed the item from the bill but by that point the enjoyment had been dulled greatly. With so many excellent places to eat in Stratford, this one was very lacklustre.

    Great tasting food but not very good service. Also the restaurant was a bit dirty to be honest, I had to wipe crumbs/food off my seat before sitting down, then I noticed food crumbs all over the table.
    We choose the restaurant for its menu and price off their website which stated 2 courses and a nice selection of puddings, however no nice selection of puddings so I asked and to be fair the waitress was very accommodating and asked the chef if we could have sticky toffee pudding.

    Unfortunately the food was not good. It was very salty for both of our main meals and therefore not able to taste any of the flavor's of the food properly

    Pre theatre meal was excellent especially the whole plaice.

    Relaxed atmosphere, food was delicious. A bit cheeky having the 10% service charge automatically added to your bill - fine if you're happy with the service. We waited over an hour between starter and main course, so this would probably have been reflected in the tip.
