The Parlour has been around a long time and deservedly so. The food is usually very good, it is well located, usually has very good and pleasant wait staff. This time around my wife had an excellent beet salad but her fish and chips was sub par. I had a saute'ed rainbow trout which came with an outstanding lentil stew.

I am the type of person to give everyone a second chance. So after my first experience at the Parlour was awful, from the lack of service (food was good) I thought one more chance! So at the end of our holiday stay in Stratford we would go back. Same unorganized service. You could tell that there wasn't enough staff... More

The owner of our B&B recommended this restaurant and it was an excellent choice. It is located in the Parlour Inn. The Prime Rib was delicious and came with mashed potatoes and camelized carrots. The pasta dish was also delicious. The crab cake was only so-so, but the soup of the day was great. We would recommend this restaurant to... More

The Parlour always strikes me as having surprisingly good food simply because it is in a setting where one wouldn't expect anything beyond "garden-variety" - so, even though I KNOW it's always really, really good, I'm still a bit surprised. The menu is creative without being "tricky" or overdone or self-conscious and it unashamedly offers the tried and true "basics"... More

Great food. Atmosphere is nice. Make sure you save room for dessert. Sometimes I just order Pavlova for take out. Yummy!

We were disappointed here, after it was recommended to us. Service was friendly and timely. I ordered the salmon with basil pasta. They were perfectly cooked, but there was so little pesto that it resulted in pretty much no flavor to the dish. Also, the roasted tomato slices served with the entree were cold, not mistakenly so, but truly cold.... More

The Parlour Hotel is a relatively new and welcome overdue addition to the Stratford hotel inventory. This 28 room boutique hotel is the first foray by the Vintage Inn Hotel Group of Niagara on the Lake fame into the Stratford community. It boasts generous size rooms, many of which are suits and is located in close proximity to the downtown... More

We had a very nice lunch on the patio - chilled avocado and lime soup was great ! Staff were very pleasant, service good. It is a short walk to the centre of town and the Avon Theatre.

Nice dining room with friend staff. Good range on the menu with local food dishes (locally sourced meat, cheeses, and veggies).Daily specials are priced fairly. Good portions, sometimes an issue , in touristy Stratford , in the summer.
