Bell Court in Stratford-upon-Avon is already a rather nice place for food, drink and more. But it’s about to get even better.

Three new outlets are arriving at the hub in the heart of Stratford this spring – including two foodie-focused businesses.

The Tempest café bar opened its doors last month and award-winning burger restaurant Libertine Burger is opening its third restaurant on 20th March. 

We all know I’m no stranger to Libertine and now people in Stratford can get their hands on their burgers.

Libertine founder Charles Harris said: “We’re delighted to be taking up our new home in thriving Bell Court. It’s a great place for us and we can’t wait to meet all our new neighbours and open our doors to our customers in Stratford-upon-Avon.”

The Tempest is a new family-run café and wine bar offering breakfast, brunch, cannolis and selection of Italian wines and beers.

Owner Leonardo Shinh said: “The Tempest was inspired by our love for Stratford and a deep purpose to serve our community.

“I grew up in cafés, they have always been my second home. I worked in them, studied, socialised, and built stronger relationships in them. My mission is to offer Stratford a bit of Europe, a personal connection in our service and most importantly to create that intimate experience as if you feel you are sitting in a play.”

Another new name in Bell Court is Papersky, a small family-run bespoke framing service and art gallery that sells unique art, notebooks, cards and other handmade products, as well as offering Craft Experience Days, Photographic Workshops and exhibitions.

Rich Jones, Centre Manager of Bell Court, said: “We’re once again excited to be welcoming these new, local businesses to the centre and further strengthening our food and retail offering, both for locals and visitors.
