Fresh food With the exception only of chips and bread, all our food is freshly homemade on the premises. Choose from a seasonal menu of traditional dishes, plus hand-baked cakes and biscuits. Good Beer Guide A staple inclusion in the prestigious Good Beer Guide, The Old Thatch Tavern is the best place in town to sup a well-kept real ale, crisp lager or world wine. Piece of paradise Stratford comes into its own in Summer, but there’s no finer piece of paradise than our own courtyard garden. Go alfresco in our ‘bijou’ outdoor space, complete with water feature.
