We had a day out in Stratford and chose to have our lunch at The Opposition. It was a great choice and would not hesitate to eat there again. We both chose the pork fillet and slow roasted pork belly and it was very, very nice. Would have liked to have had the rice pudding and plum compote from the... More

I recently visited The Oppo as it is known locally and can definitely recommend it. There was a good choice on the menu and we all plumped for the set lunch menu which was very good value! The food was tasty and well presented and the service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very busy and people were being... More

We popped in for dinner and luckily got a table on a Saturday night. The food was superb. I had the Sea bass and my husband had the Cajun chicken and both dishes didn't disappoint. The staff were attentive and friendly. A lovely restaurant with a cosy intimate atmosphere. Well worth a visit!

We booked here for dinner after looking at the reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. I would say if you are thinking of coming here book well in advance as I booked for a Friday night on the Wednesday and the latest table was 6:15. I had an excellent meal as did my partner, the goats cheese in... More

Good menu choices. Good wine list. Good, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Bravely attempted 3 courses, and the portion size was just right. Full of flavour. And sensibly priced. Recommended.

I tend to only write reviews for exceptionally good or bad performances. In this case, I turned up late, with a client on a Valentines evening which is traditionally one of the worst nights to eat out on. in this instance the reception was warm and friendly, the service quick, efficient and not fussy whilst personable and on point.

Wonderful food and choice with some unusual dishes and great staff who really look after you. You will need to book as very popular and tell them the occasion so they know where best to seat you. Also tell them if in a hurry for the RSC.

With so many eateries in Stratford we really liked the look of this one & weren't disappointed. Three lovely ladies looked after us, in a restaurant that was cosy and welcoming. The food was great and as a bonus they have half carafes of house wine. an added bonus, although it didn't apply to us, was that The Opposition has... More
