It’s a ‘spoons. OK, it’s a ‘spoons in a nice building, but that isn’t unusual. Other than that? Spoons. Exactly what you’d expect, smack in the middle of Stratford’s main area. They were pretty rigorously enforcing the use of the family area, I’m glad to say, ID’ing the one member of our party that’s lucky enough to look under 18 when we sat in the main area.

A pleasant-looking pub just on the edge of town: There’s real ale, food, and very friendly staff. The food was OK, the beer excellent, and the prices more than reasonable considering where it is. It’s part of the Old English Inns chain, as is The Dirty Duck, and it’s pretty obvious, though thankfully they haven’t left it devoid of character.
