Distant recollection only of this quite excellent little bistro in beautiful Stratford. Knowledgeable commentators told us it had started a few years ago with good success but then doubled its prices. We found the food and service more than adequate and weren’t particularly shocked at the cost.
The staff are bright and colloquial, full of enthusiasm. We only remember two dishes: Robin the burger (“delicious!”), and me the smoked meat sandwich. The sandwich opened new vistas of flavour and meat/fat joy, with beautifully fresh rye bread soaked with butter, relatively thick-sliced meat packed with peppery flavour, but particularly revved up by a mustard I think they called “menace mustard”. Better than any comparable sandwich I can remember, including some very classy Reubens.
Sorry for lack of detail here but quite highly recommend this little spot which would be certainly among the top three in town.
