Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon provides the backdrop for this charming, atmospheric gastropub. It’s a home-away-from-home foodie haunt, and the perfect place to relax away from the hustle and bustle that Shakespeare’s legacy has left to the city.
The pub now boasts beautiful high ceilings with exposed beams, roaring log fires, comfy Chesterfi eld armchairs and plenty of other stylish features. The atmospheric interior is complemented by a delightful terrace, where guests can dine al fresco overlooking the park and theatre.
The Encore’s à la carte showcases delicious, seasonally changing fare such as chicken, leek and crème fraîche pie topped with ham hock crumb, served with seasonal greens, potato mash and heritage carrots; and lobster and Devonshire crab fi shcakes served with asaparagus, and pea and truffl e oil velouté, topped with crispy seaweed. There’s also a fantastic range of shareable nibbles, starters, pizzas and a large range of daily specials that complete the well-rounded menu. Don’t leave without tasting one of The Encore’s delicious desserts. The melting golden chocolate bomb with caramel ice cream, chocolate popping candy and hot Devon cream toffee sauce is outstanding.
As well as the à la carte, The Encore offers a fixed-price menu on weekdays, and a terrific Sunday roast. There’s also discounted Champagne and Prosecco on Thursday and Friday and live music on Friday evening, too.
