Review on The Opposition
The Opposition affectionately known locally as the 'Oppo' is a colourful bistro of more than 20 years' standing, situated just a stone's throw from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Behind the black-and-white frontage is a beamed dining room oozing history and – beyond that – a walled patio garden for summertime lounging. Its the perfect spot for a meal before or after the show.
The kitchen keeps things simple with a wide-ranging menu aimed to please all-comers, showcasing quality ingredients. Start off with lamb meatballs with grilled aubergine and mint yoghurt and proceed to salmon fishcakes on a bed of spinach with sorrel sauce or penne pasta with roasted aubergine and mild chilli sauce with mozzarella. If there's time, bring the curtain down with banoffi pie or caramelised hazelnut parfait.
