Where do you go to find the freshest ingredients in the city? Strawberry Fare.

It’s a great place to come and have dinner with friends, family or colleagues. There are wonderful views over Hagley Park not to mention an abundance of natural light.

Fresh produce cooked well means a very tasty plate! Begin with something punchy like their House-cured Salmon Gravlax, Duck Confit Hash or perhaps go for Beetroot and Falafel Salad.

For mains get stuck in with their Slow-cooked Lamb Pappardelle, Daily Fish with herb and lemon mash or the delicious Pea and Lemon Risotto.

Finish off your meal with one of Strawberry Fare’s amazing desserts – the chef’s tasting plate, Bombe Alaska or Chocolate Devil's Dream.

I was most impressed with Strawberry Fare. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was great. The servings of food were generous and the quality did not go down through having the food at a heavily discounted rate. We had a lovely view over looking Hagley Park.

We had a great meal here and introduced our 11 and 13 year olds to strawberry fare for the first time, despite the fussiness of our youngest who wanted the steak on a plate separate to everything else we all loved our meals, the steak was beautifully cooked, portions a perfect size, desserts were of course superb, the 13 year old was beaten by the chocolate platter, but has serious friend envy after posting pictures of her dessert all over social media, my tasting platter of 3 desserts was the perfect end to the meal- creme brûlée, cheesecake and white and dark chocolate cake provided a taste of 3 different choices

We had a lovely evening at Strawberry Fare. The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were generous - one of our group had the salmon off the 'light meals' part of the menu but it was the size of a regular main! The lamb in the lamb ragu was so tender it was falling apart and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The highlight of the night, though, was the desserts. They were stunningly presented with shards of chocolate and spun toffee balanced on top (if you want to take a nice picture for Instagram then this is definitely the place to go!) The dessert portions were huge and I could barely finish mine so I would suggest sharing a dessert unless you have a real sweet tooth.

We had a fantastic time at Strawberry Fare. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. We were also asked if we were there for a special occasion and our friend was surprised with a birthday candle in her dessert! lovely touch. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The waffles, cinnamon roll french toast, and thyme roasted potatoes were very tasty. The coffee was great and the service was excellent. Our table was by the window with a lovely view of the corner Hagley Park! The atmosphere in the restaurant was also very pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend breakfast at Strawberry Fare to any of my family and friends.

My friend and I had a fabulous meal at Strawberry Fare yesterday. The service was impeccable and the food outstandingly delicious! We had a lovely table by the window, with lovely views of Hagley Park. We were treated so well. It was a belated birthday lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for a while and I thank you for looking after us so well. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful meal and dessert! We had the Turkey Salad and also the Fish of The Day, both were amazing! Thank you again! We will most definitely "spread the word" that Strawberry Fare is not to be missed!

First time back in years, and disappointed we hadn't returned sooner. The service is impeccable and the food was exceptional. We had the baguette and prawns to start with which were both delicious. We both had the fillet steak and both were cooked as we had requested - one of the only places I've been that provided a genuinely rare steak for me. The dessert is what they are famous for, and we splashed out with a dessert each. We had the ultimate chocolate plate and the hazelnut and caramel torte. They were both so well done. The chocolate was probably too much chocolate for us, but that was what the dish was about, so not a criticism. The torte was just perfection. We would change nothing about the night. The atmosphere was also enjoyable. We were the fifth table upon arrival, and leaving the restaurant was full (on a Tuesday)! Highly recommended, we look forward to returning.

The only thing I could fault Strawberry Fare with is that I couldn’t resist but eat too much! The food was amazing! Service was friendly and the food came out so quickly, which is always appreciated when you are eating with young children. My four year old is still raving on about her delicious steak and wasn’t even able to finish her ice cream because she was so full... which was my cue to try and eat her dessert as well. Overall, the whole family thoroughly enjoyed our time there and I am very much craving the warmed raspberry drenched chocolate cake.

I had breakfast here with my Mum, 3 year old daughter and my 5 month old son came along too. We were very impressed with the food! I had the Duck Confit Hash which I thought tasted amazing. My mum had the Simply Salmon - the apple slaw with this was so fresh and delicious! For my daughter we ordered the Cinnamon Roll French Toast which was also nice - but I think just a little too much cinnamon for her liking.
The only negative we had is I had my pram with me for my son and there was no elevator to get up the stairs, so we had to carry it up - which was not really a big deal for us as the pram is light, but I could see that it may be an issue for others. We were so full after our meals that we didn't have any room for pudding, so will have to go back one day for desert!

Fantastic enjoyable date night out. Food was delicious and the cocktails are hard to beat. Sharing a creme brulee at the end of the evening topped it off. Keep up the good work.

Had a lovely evening. Staff very attentive. Both main and dessert were delicious. The main of Confit Duck Leg was a highlight.
Our meal was a birthday celebration and once the staff became aware they presented the birthday recipient with a birthday message in chocolate on their dessert; very special.

Lovely spot for lunch. The beef was cooked to perfection, turkey salad lovely and I'm told the berry hotcakes were 'MMMmmmmmm very good actually'.
After years of driving past we are glad we finally stopped by. Menu looks fabulous, will be back to try more.

Exceptional Dining

Food is delicious and tasty, excellent combination of flavours. Food is plated perfectly and well presented.
Extensive dessert menu, with a large selection of dessert options.
Despite restaurant being incredibly busy on a Saturday night food was presented in a timely manner and service was friendly and efficient.
By the end of the meal we were planning our next visit.
