Our Story

Since 1977 The Prune has been synonymous with sophisticated, inspired cuisine.

Located in the historic downtown, The Prune continues to illuminate the Stratford food scene

offering a dining experience that is consistently creative and joyful.

Our cuisine is inspired in part by the bounty of local artisan producers and growers.  With touches of world cuisines alongside the classics the result is an experience that is both uplifting and memorable.


Hand-picked wines and beers created by passionate wine makers and craft brewers, along with a revitalized cocktail list compliment the fresh menu
