About Us

Welcome to Cox’s Yard

The home of riverside drinking and dining in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Situated on the beautiful river Avon just a stone’s throw from the centre of town, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better location to relax. Cox’s Yard leaves you spoilt for choice, boasting an all fresh food restaurant with a fantastic range of beers and wines, not to mention our Coffee Shop, offering cakes, light bites and homemade Gelato.

We are named after James Cox, a timber merchant who moved to the site to develop his fledgling business over 160 years ago. James Cox and Sons became well known in the area for supplying the finest materials, many of which were used to build today’s historic building in Shakespeare’s County. Whilst we obviously no longer trade in timber, we do serve delicious food and drink, made from the finest ingredients, that’s not to be missed!
