We had a pre-play dinner in "The Lounge" at The Bruce Hotel. The lounge is an adjunct to the main dining room, and there is also seating on the patio in pleasant weather. We had reservations and were admitted promptly at our designated time. The lounge was about half full and the dining room less. Our server took our drink order immediately and gave us time to peruse the menu...which was markedly different from that presented on-line. We shared a smoked trout gravalax appetizer and I had the braised lamb shank for my entree. Both were excellent. The wine by the glass selections were somewhat limited and I tried two...neither of which seemed to hit the spot. The decor of the lounge seemed a little tired...with worn tables and accessories. All-in-all, it was a pleasant experience and the location close to the Stratford Festival made it an overall winner.
