Excellent pre-theatre dinner. Nice choice of dishes. Service is a lot quicker than it used to be.

An elegant fine dining spot in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, No 44 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 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.

No 44 at The Arden Hotel neighbours the Royal Shakespeare Company theatres, and looks out over the River Avon.

    I was given an afternoon tea by my friend as a birthday treat. Very attentive staff, everything was explained well except parking details as The Arden is on a one way system and unclear how to get to the parking at the rear.

    We had the pre-theatre dinner menu. All the food was excellent and arrived piping hot. The service was very good and the food arrived much more quickly than usual. Very good value for money.

    Afternoon Tea should be a pleasureable experience, ours was from it. Missing cups at the table, shabby, dirty teapots. First impression not good. We chose our preferred tea, this arrived in reasonable time. We then waited almost an hour for sandwiches to arrive, not on a tiered stand as one would expect, but four sandwiches on an old, plain white plate. The sandwiches obviously made in advance were very poor. The bread had dried out from being left out in the kitchen, the fillings were indescribable, the smoked salmon was not, but tinned salmon, not even pink! Served on a thick inedible black bread. The cucumber was soft and soggy, you could not eat it. The fillings were very mean. No suggestion of replacing the sandwiches for fresh. they eventually cleared the plates to another half hour wait for scones and cakes. The choice of lemon curd or strawberry jam arrived in small jars, strawberry with tops unopened, lemon curd in jars already opened. The scones again very mean, the clotted cream resembled plaster, most unappealing.The cakes and pastries were a joke. The small pastry fruit tarts, the jelly had melted the fruit had gone with it lying on the plate, A rhubarb and custard Bomb, was tasteless and had too melted. The only thing eaten from that plate was the carrot cake, cut in small squares with a blob of icing on the top. We were on no occasion asked if the food was okay, complete ingnorance by the staff in seeing that most of the sandwiches and cake food were uneaten. We had to ask twice for the bill. I was very embarrassed by the quality of the afternoon tea, we were friends meeting for a long awaited catch up together. We were very dissapointed with our experience and we would have been better going to a M & S Cafe. Plenty of other venues for an nice afternoon tea. The final straw was when the bill arrived with a 10% service charge added, which we refused to pay. For the price we paid £23.00 each it was an utter RipOff and thoroughly disgraceful.

    Fantastic pre-theatre meal at The Arden Hotel. Beautifully prepared and presented dishes which all diners in our party thoroughly enjoyed. Chicken breast delicious and special highlight Sticky Toffee Pudding. Would highly recommend.

    We were staying at the Arden . Lovely pre theatre meal . Well judged in terms of flavours and portion size. My hake , in particular, was delicious and my wife was delighted with her chicken . Good wines by the glass and incredibly close to the theatre
