Edward Moon Restaurant

Edward Moon Restaurant


9 Chapel Street,
CV37 6EP


Known locally as ‘Moons’, we are situated on Chapel Street. This street can be traced back to the 15th Century and is located next to many of Stratford-upon-Avon’s key historical sites. These include Nash House, Guild Chapel and (school of Shakespeare), King Edward VI Boy’s Grammar School, to name but a few.

In our friendly, informal but professional style we cater for all, individuals, couples, families and large groups. We will serve you the best quality food using local English ingredients, always with a smile... and to top it off we are less than five minutes walk away from The Royal Shakespeare Theatre!

Edward Moon was a travelling chef working in the British Colonial service in the early nineteen hundreds.
Employed by governors and ambassadors around the globe he was famous as an English eccentric capable of creating a culinary “Little England” wherever he was posted.

The banquets he cooked for, serving his traditional English recipes and dishes, became legendary amongst diplomatic circles.

Edward was also a creative cook, enthusiastic and excited by the local ingredients, cooking styles and methods he encountered on his exotic travels.

He retired to England in 1940 and recorded his experiences, philosophy and recipes in a book “The Travelling Cook’s Companion”.

It is the spirit described in this book that has helped us inspire our restaurants.
