COVID-19 – here is an update for our planning and ongoing activity.

Following the government’s recent announcement,

It is again with a heavy heart we postpone opening

As you can imagine we are devastated.

However our staff and guests comfort and safety is the top priority for us.

Thank you for the ongoing support throughout this time

From all of us at

The Opposition

Hopefully we will see you all again sometime in May 2021


Just a stone’s throw away from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, you will find a thoroughly modern, bustling bistro – The Opposition.

For over 20 years, The Opposition, or “Oppo” as it is affectionately known by locals and theatre goers, has been one of the most thriving, welcoming restaurants on the Stratford scene.

The “Oppo” is the perfect venue for both pre and post theatre meals. With a thoughtfully-constructed menu and eclectic wine list, the Opposition really does have something for everyone – it is a friendly bistro with an informal atmosphere, offering a delicious and varied menu to suit all tastes. The perfect venue for lunch, dinner or that special occasion where atmosphere, food and service all count.
