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

We are really hopeful of reopening on 17th May 2021!! Please check back regularly for updates and follow us on social media for more information.


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.
