Dine with us at The Arden Hotel and celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in style with a unique Alfresco dining experience in Stratford

With spring coming to an end and the warmer summer months fast approaching, there has never been a better time to start planning your summer. What better way than to spend a summer indulging in fine dining out in the open air. Here at the Arden Hotel, we’re offering an Alfresco dining  experience in Stratford. Made unique by our terrace setting which promises to provide you with beautiful views of Stratford and food that will ignite your taste buds. 

The terrace dining experience of your dreams


Our luxurious terrace is set within the perfect backdrop, opposite the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre and overlooking the stunning River Avon where you will spot swans in all their glory and the pleasure boats that tour people around the canal basin. You’ll be able to enjoy your meal whilst taking in the views. Often people who experience alfresco dining with us appreciate the peacefulness of the space they are in and as an added bonus, you may be able to spot a well-known face or two from the theatre, an exciting surprise that pairs nicely with your delicious dishes. 

The terrace experience is beautifully unique as you look out into the distance you will spot yet another iconic symbol of Stratford; the Swan Theatre, a strikingly beautiful building with its Victorian Gothic architecture. You can choose from a selection of elegant and flavoursome dishes; favourites such as our torched and cured salmon starter, to our Asian glazed duck breast main with pickled or roasted carrots, through to our popular banana cake and salted caramel ice cream. All of our dishes are part of our fine contemporary cooking experience that showcases carefully selected ingredients, making for the perfect alfresco dining in Stratford. 

The terrace is a peaceful oasis, moments away from the bustling market town of Stratford where you can enjoy fine food and create even better memories between family and friends. 

A food experience that can be enjoyed by all

At the Arden Hotel Brasserie, we pride ourselves on ensuring everyone can enjoy a luxurious food experience with us. 

We want our vegetarian and vegan guests to enjoy the same choice and quality as their meat-eating friends, which is why you will find we offer a wide selection of dishes to suit every palate. From miso glazed lamb belly for the meat eaters to our cumin roasted cauliflower steak for those who prefer a vegetarian option, we really have it all. 

Our terrace is an all-weather space, with covered spaces that include large umbrellas and heaters, we also have blankets and faux sheepskins should it be cold, so your alfresco dining in Stratford is not ruined come rain or shine. 

You don’t have to be staying at the hotel to enjoy our terrace. Everyone who dines with us will receive a warm welcome, great service and amazing food too. We cater to all group sizes and have a wonderful events team who will go above and beyond, guiding you through your many options for special occasions, which we love to be a part of. Check our website for more on celebrating special events at the Arden Hotel.
