Located within the Swan’s Nest hotel, our Stratford bistrot has a smart, yet relaxed atmosphere in an enviable location. Sitting on the banks of the River Avon, our customers can enjoy picturesque views from our bistrot or outdoor terrace whilst dining with us.

We embrace French culture and love of food and celebrate all that is great about French cuisine. All of our dishes are freshly prepared by our chefs, using a mix of artisan provincial ingredients and carefully selected locally sourced ingredients, in the style of typical continental bistrots.

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. We can also cater for weddings.
