Had a catch up meal here with a couple of friends and was great to be able to order off any one of the four menus for the eateries surrounding the courtyard. A little disappointed that 3 of us couldnt get our first choices on menu as they were sold out despite being a "first table" but was a Saturday so perhaps it had been a busy day? No complaints about the food we got and the price was amazing. The live music which started about 8 I think was really good also but did get a bit loud so hard to hear what our friends were saying. However would thoroughly recommend and would love to go back and perhaps try what I really wanted off the menu.

Loved the atmosphere, service, and the food. The bar tenders recommendation of the BBC cocktail was perfect. We shared some fries that are probably the best in town, and I had a steak and my partner had the duck wings. My steak was slightly over cooked for my taste, and I still thought it was delicious and didn’t care a bit. Will definitely go back!

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. We weren't too sure what to expect but were greeted like an old friend. Being able to choose from the multiple menus was great and allowed for a variety of food choices. Great service and atmosphere completed the night wonderfully. This just became our new favourite!

Efficient, friendly service and a great range of food and drinks to choose from. It was great being able to choose food from multiple restaurants and the food was delicious. Lots of choice and interesting options. Strange & Co, and the lane it is in, is really interesting and was humming with people, without being crowded. Interesting surroundings. Thank you for a great night out.

My mum and I had a beautiful meal and Strange and Co. Well thought out and delicious food; and the Beignets - SO GOOD! The only thing I think they could improve on was the temperature of the room, it was pretty cold. But that could of just been me :)

Never been down strangers lane before so got a nice surprise when we found out what was hiding in behind the walls. It was outdoors, warm, live music and a great atmosphere. We were stoked when the menu cane and you could order from any of about 4 restaurants. We got two dishes from Orleans, two dishes from Stranger and Co, and 4 drinks from stager and Co. Everything was 5 star. Food arrived hot, altogether, presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The cocktails were really different and new, but tasted amazing.
All in a fantastic experience and will return with friends in future.

I would highly recommend Strange & Co for a meal as the food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful,our steak and pork belly were cooked just perfectly and the desserts were excellent highly recommend the Pecan Pie.Our only criticism would be the that it was very dark and for us older diners I am afraid we need a bit more light, needed to use our flashlights on our phones and we were not the only ones to do this apart from that small problem would highly recommend and have done so to friends and family to dine here.
