Exceptional service, good food

This has a typical English pub feel, without the beer smell. What stood out was Shelby our server. One of the best I have encountered in some time. Friendly, helpful, genuinely interested in our feedback. As apps, we had the Parlour Salad, mixed greens, dried fruit, nuts, goat cheese; reasonably... read more

Seen a special advertised in a flyer for their fish and chips. From a previous visit we enjoyed their fish and chip meal of beer battered haddock so was expecting the same meal as the special. To our surprise the fish was bassa, coleslaw, and the plate was 75% fries. Lots of grease which did not sit well afterward. This... More

The baked Goat Cheese Appetizer was fantastic, as was the braised Beef Short Rib Entrée. My friend had the Prime Rib and raved about it. The wine list had a great selection of choices by the glass. Premium wines indeed. Our service was very efficient and outgoing. Great sense of humour.

stopped by on Thursday night. They had a deal on Chicken Wings, so I took the servers recommendation. The wings were huge! Definitely not many places have wings this big anymore. Great draught beer selection, so I elected to go with the draught beer flight. Also had the new brownie dessert. Very rich and delicious. Server was very personable and... More

We love fish and chips! The supervisor of duty was wonderful and kind, as well as the staff is always amazing. By far our favourite place to relax and have a date night.

Had breakfast and dinner...food is fantastic, the service is wonderful! Breakfast was bacon and eggs but they add a lovely mushroom spinach and roasted red pepper salad to it which was devine. The fish and chips were so good!

The Parlour hotel and restaurant, once a reliable staple of dining in Stratford, has slipped significantly in quality. The hotel/restaurant was taken over by new owners over a year ago and this has not been good. The restaurant, although never 5 star quality, was reliable with an interesting menu that was satisfying. Since the takeover the menu has been shortened... More

We have been celebrating at The Parlour for over 20 years. It was on our list for favourite and finest establishments in Stratford. Our recent visit was very disappointing the usual excellent service and food quality has disappeared. Apparently a lot of changes with the chef and wait staff. The prices have gone up while quality and service have gone... More
