Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!
Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W
Daytime delays may be possible during August, however, all roads and the round-about are open.
Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov
Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.
Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress
Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)
Chef Yva Santini's Italian kitchen at Taverna brings a new direction to Stratford's main corner. Her menu includes sustainable seafoods from Ocean Wise, handmade pasta's, locally sourced meats and produce all cooked in the Italian tradition of simplified flavours. Yva relies on the quality of local ingredients to shine through in her food. Warm service in a convivial dining room and a diverse wine and beer selection make the Taverna a local and visitor favourite. We are excited to celebrate our 22nd season in 2018.
Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!
“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
