About Cox’s Yard
A once thriving timber yard, this charming and ruggedly handsome building now welcomes the visitors & locals of Stratford-upon-Avon as a lively riverside pub & restaurant.
Serving up honest eats, an impressive range of lagers, real ales, wines & spirits as well as weekly live music performances, we offer a relaxed dining & drinking destination that can be enjoyed by everyone.
Excellent venue for works party. Wonderful food and very friendly and efficient staff.
We had our work Christmas meal here, and it was fantastic! They gave us our own room (complete with Christmas tree), and the food and service were excellent. Everyone praised the choice on the menu. Portions were VERY generous considering the price. AND we all agreed they were the best chips in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Great venue for our company Christmas party. Buffet was great, staff were brilliant as was the DJ. Definitely use again!
I booked a table for Saturday 8th at 7:30 online When we turned up we were informed there was a private function booked and we were turned away.
Booked a table for 8 people on 29.11.19 for 08.12.19 @ 8.00pm, confirmation email received. When we turned up the venue was closed for a private party. The manager informed us that there had been a 'mix-up' and that they had tried to get in contact to explain. Despite having both my mobile number and email address no one had attempted to get in touch. The manager did buy us a round of drinks as an apology and also found us a table at a different restaurant. If you make a booking probably worth double checking by phone to ensure another 'mistake' has not occurred.
Excellent meal and service. The whole family really enjoyed it.
We reserved a table online, but when we arrived and discussed this with the waitress she didn't show us to a table or even say sit wherever you want. Instead she just walked off! The bar staff were as equally polite and helpful, one of them walking off when he was stood right in front of us and could see we hadn't been served. The building was absolutely freezing, we even had to keep our coats on throughout our stay, and were just fobbed off with a "the building is freezing, we have to suffer this all day" from the staff. If you do visit, you can defrost in the toilets! Due to the temperature of the building, unless you threw you food down your throat without chewing it, most of it was cold before you ate it.
Working with the venue was a true pleasure, they could not have been more accommodating and were so supportive in ensuring our charity fundraiser went just as we imagined it. Thank you so much to the staff and managers who made it happen, would highly recommend.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was delicious, hearty portions and served with a smile. Couldn't fault anything and will definitely be back.
Fantastic Venue - great place for private event and Stuart and his staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Excellent food and excellent service. Great night had by all!
Warm friendly welcome, Staff were super attentive and helpful. I would definitely go back for the food too - I had a nice classical dish of bangers and mash but it was so fancy I took a picture - haha, tasted great too! I don't come from the area and was recommended by a friend so if I'm passing through again i would definitely come back here.
Nice food, though let down by slow service and lack of atmosphere (maybe expected on a weds night though!)
Amazing starters and mains but surprised how quiet it was as this used to be such a busy place, shame to see it so quiet
Lovely staff and yummy food. Atmosphere would be better on a busier night! We went on a Sunday and expected it to be fairly quiet.
Service was incredibly swift!
Arranged a Staff get together for 30 people. Food was amazing and was the staff! Brilliant evening had by all.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your service. The bar staff were brilliant with such a big drinks order of 27 they worked together well getting all the drinks correct and to us very promptly twice, a big thank you to them! We were all very impressed with the food service how quickly these came out and taking the order list so that you could give each person their order without any fuss, the food was lovely and so was the atmosphere so thank you for making our lunch enjoyable!
Food was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The toilets could be cleaner (which was something my while party commented on) Overall, a lovely lunch sat outside by the river.
Brilliant service. Staff very friendly and efficient.
great place, great service, super location and nice food
We had a work Summer Party at Cox's Yard for 15 people. The food was excellent, everyone commented on the fact it was tasty, hot and plentiful. Staff were friendly and the male server we had was on hand to top up glasses. The only issue we had were the toilets. The ladies was smelly, untidy and lacking in toilet roll. The gents wasn't much better either. Apart from that, we would highly recommend Cox's Yard.
15 of us met for lunch to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. The food was delicious, and from the moment we arrived, we couldn't have been made more welcome. I would strongly recommend Cox's Yard to anyone looking for somewhere with good food and a warm welcome in Stratford.
Great atmosphere, always really busy, live music is great, staff are really friendly too! This was my first visit and I had booked for 10 people. We got a room to ourselves, which was great! There were some good drinks choices on the menu and all reasonably priced. The food was good and there were happy tummies at the end, but I did have a few issues around this. The food was already being delivered to the table before the last person had even ordered. I like fast service but this suggested to me that nothing was cooked from fresh. I ordered the Thai Edamame Burger and what I received was a lentil burger with a gluten-free bun. When I inquired, I was told that my order was correct and that is what the Thai Edamame Burger was like. No thai, no edmame and no sourdough bun stated on the menu. It tasted good, but it wasn't what I asked for. On the whole, this is a great place for drinks, and a quick bit to eat. We enjoyed our visit.
