Bites of Success

So Stratford’s event calendar isn’t quite as full as usual, and going to the tip seems to feature in ‘things to do in Stratford’?!  However, we are fortunate that there is a celebration of Stratford’s fantastic food and drink scene running until October 22nd.  Many tempting offers are being run to keep us eating out to help out!  Check out for a list of what’s on.

Some appetising free competitions are running with delicious prizes. On Facebook as before, but as popularly demanded, they are now running on Instagram and Twitter too – and each with different prizes.

How’s FEASTS going? 

The Arden’s outstanding offer of sumptuous afternoon tea for two guests for a mere £25, reduced from £22.95 per person, is going down a treat.… Sai Nathan Chef Operations Manager “ we are pleased so many bookings are coming in through Feasts, we’ve seen great publicity in the Herald and on line.  Even previous members of staff are booking!

New offers are coming in from local independents including …

  • Thai Kitchen Stratford – Shrieves walk – special lunch offers of £7.50 for main course with rice, and if that wasn’t enough in the evenings Tuesday and Thursday they are offering 20% off food!
