We're staying in a cottage near Stratford on Avon for 3 nights at the end of Summer half term (making the most of a longer half term due to a couple of non-pupil days).

We are staying with in-laws to celebrate FILs 70th. He's local (Leamington) but hasn't been back for years.

Any recommendations for veggie and fussy children eating and places to visit suitable for mobility scooter? Holiday cottage is near Bidford on Avon. Are the pubs nice for families there?

We'd love to visit Warwick castle but I think we might leave that for when the in-laws aren't in tow so we can go at our own pace. We have NT membership so that is an option.

Forgot to add we have DC aged 9 and 6.

There are absolutely loads of places to visit in Stratford - all the Shakespeare stuff including Mary Arden's farm, Stratford butterfly farm and the river is lovely for a boat trip/picnic and has a lovely park alongside.
Also lots of places to eat in Stratford.
If you want to visit Leamington there are really nice shops, pubs and cafes, fabulous gardens next to the Pump Rooms which house a small art gallery/museum and a small botanical garden type place.
You are also not far from Umberslade Children's farm in Tamworth in Arden or even Birmingham if you fancied somewhere like Cadbury World.
Also a few good NT places in the area.

Lots of ideas there, thanks. Sounds like Leamington will be pleasant for a wander and something to eat. Stratford a must do and then something else for our last day.
