Classic old Black and White timber pub, full of history and worth a look. Very small front bar with 1 handpump serving a beer from Prescott's brewery. More choice in the back room with 4 handpumps on. I tried the "house" Garrick's ale which was fine.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Garrick Inn

Olde worlde timbered hostelrie in tourist central, with a very compact bar at the front and a slightly larger bar and various dining areas down the corridor further back. All very traditional, as you would expect, and has a reasonable claim to being the oldest in Stratford. As a Greene King house, the four real ales on offer were Old Hoppy Hen (£3.49) on the smaller counter plus IPA, Abbot and the 'house' Garricks Shakespeare on the larger one.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Garrick Inn

An attractive looking timbered pub in the centre of town, it is apparently the oldest pub in Stratford, although I suspect it may not be the only one making that particular claim.

Internally, a corridor to the left has a small snug off of it at the front, and this was a cosy and atmospheric spot with a suitable “olde worlde” charm. Leaded windows looked out on to the street whilst the flooring was dark wooden boards and there were plenty of black wooden beams on the ceiling and further supporting timberwork set in to the walls. A small bar counter was in one corner as well as a small TV in another corner which seemed a little out of character, but fortunately this was not in use. Various old photos of the locale were on the walls. Further back at the rear of the pub it opened out in to a much larger area that was somewhat more contemporary in appearance with some exposed brickwork, but it was still very pleasant. A wood panelled restaurant looked to be quite elegant.

Beers on tap were predominantly from the Greene King stable with their Old Golden Hen, Abbott Ale and IPA. There was also their own Garrick Special Best Bitter, but this wasn’t to my taste to be honest. Cider choice was disappointing with just Aspall’s Suffolk. Overall, I thought the front bar of this pub was a great spot, but I feel obligated to deduct a point for the poor drink selection.
