The King Edward VII - or King Eddie's as they like to call themselves - has the proud honour of being the best pub in Stratford. Compared to the post-war shopping centre over the road, the pub's Victorian exterior positively stands out, with low doors and bay windows. Indeed, as you step down into the pub, you're greeted with a warm, dark and traditional pub, boasting a host of features dating from its last refurbishment in 1914; check out the cosy fireplaces and the tiled hallway which links the public and saloon bars. Initially it can seem rather small, but the labyrinthine nature of the layout means you'll soon discover two further bars, plus a decent back garden. Despite the size, our recent midweek visit found it busy enough that it was hard to find a seat; we can imagine it picking up even more for the Thursday live music night, or the Sunday quiz. The drink doesn't disappoint either: there were four well kept ales on tap, complimented by a good range of bottled beers and a decent wine list. Meanwhile, if you're hungry, food is served all day - but it's not the cheapest around and our last meal was rather disappointing. Nonetheless, if you're after a traditional pub which offers a genial and friendly atmosphere, then look no further than King Eddies.

I'd agree with the last reviewer. This used to be a great pub around 2007 but started going downhill by 2012. I think it tried to be a bit more mainstream pub and is worse for it. Get rid of the TV, start playing the type of music you used to and stop trying to be "every pub".

I used to come here quite a bit but hadn't done so for maybe a year. I wish I hadn't. It was still busy enough but when we arrived early on a Saturday evening there were only two draught beers on tap and then this reduced to one. The TV was on so load in the side bar it totally destroyed any atmosphere that might otherwise have been there. It was a sad sight to see 7 or so pumps with no labels or the labels turned round. They need to get it together quickly and not just to make money on the reputation and the food. It's always been the case that the toilets are pokey for a largish pub, but with the rest of the place having gone downhill you notice that all the more. A bit of investment in the right areas and a return to valuing real ale would help no end. I hope it was just a really off day but I doubt it.

One of the best pubs in Stratford (and no, there aren't that many).
