about us

Established in 1989, Edward Moon'€™s Brasserie has earned a reputation as one of the finest English restaurants and brasseries in Stratford.

 

Known affectionately by its regulars as 'Moons', Edward Moon's Brasserie is a long-established, busy and bustling restaurant in the heart of Stratford.

 

Its food is inspired by the eponymous Edward Moon - an English eccentric and travelling chef who worked in the British colonial service in the early nineteen hundreds. Excited by the exotic ingredients he encountered whilst travelling the globe, he incorporated them into his dishes, recording his experience after his retirement in 1940 in a book entitled 'The Travelling Cook's Companion'.

 

It is this combination of classic and exotic ingredients and the warm, welcoming ambience from the front-of-house staff, led by Restaurant Manager, Jean-Luc Coleta that has made Moons a favourite eatery amongst locals and visitors alike.

 

Whether you want to enjoy a leisurely lunch with friends, romantic dinner, special celebration or pre or post-theatre meal, Moons looks forward to not only meeting, but exceeding your expectations.

 


 

Food

 

Offering a winning mix of traditional English dishes and contemporary British cuisine, Edward Moon's Brasserie uses fresh, seasonal, local produce and the chefs' skills and imagination to create a wide variety of delicious dishes:

 

  • Roasted shank of lamb, cooked to perfection
  • Beef Bourguignon with gratin potatoes and seasonal vegetables
  • The 'Duck Supper' - a succulent duck breast and crispy leg with rosemary jus, served with dauphinoise potatoes
  • Gammon hock with parsley sauce
  • Aubergine and butternut squash roast, topped with mozzarella
  • Creme Brulee of the day
  • Lemon posset
  • Old fashioned bread and butter pudding

 

Moons also caters for the younger clientele, with 'Mr Moon's Little Menu' offering such delights as Barry's Best Banger, Little Moon's Sunday Roast and Mr Moon's Finest Fishcake.

 

A coeliac friendly menu is also available.
