Situated in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, The Vintner is a natural meeting place, whether it be for a coffee or something a little stronger in the café / bar, a meal in this restaurant or when getting together more formally in the Private Dining Room.
Wine and dine in relaxed surroundings and share in Stratford-upon-Avon’s rich and famous heritage. The Vintner has a diverse and thoughtful menu, locally-sourced and seasonally adjusted, as well as a comprehensive range of fine wines and beers from all over the world.
‘The Vintner’ derives its name from the year 1600, when John Smith traded, along with his wife, as a wine merchant (vintner) in the building. It is more than likely that William Shakespeare purchased his wine from here!
This genuinely unique example of timber-framed architecture has remained largely unaltered since its construction in the late- 1400’s. Still privately owned after 500 years, the sense of history in this ancient building remains intact, from the flagstone floors to the fabulous expanse of oak beams.
