Our ‘raison d’être’ is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and crème brûlée with our own take on regional favourites like confit de canard and pâté de campagne. Our ‘award winning’ bistrot is relaxed and friendly and the place to go in Stratford for any occasion.

Just five minutes’ walk from the town centre and main attractions like the Royal Shakespeare Company, our bistrot has become a favourite amongst locals, tourists and actors alike. Customers can also make their dining experience extra special, by dining in our private and intimate Clopton Room which can accommodate up to 45 people.

Open seven days-a-week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner we have something for everyone. From our two course Prix fixe lunch for £11.95 and our two course Prix fixe evening menu for £14.95 to our evening À la carte menu. We also offer gluten-free dishes and a children's menu, which comes with our bespoke 14 page activity pack.

Next door you’ll find our sister pub, The Bear Freehouse, which boasts 8 conditioned cask ales, quality draft lager, 28 wines by the glass and so much more. Click here to visit the website.
