We make a point of dining here on every visit to Stratford ... sometimes for lunch, sometimes for dinner. The food is consistently good and the pavlova is a definite must for dessert!

The Parlour Inn is a beautiful building and the dining room is divided into several areas which might have been rooms in the older house. Wonderful character. Lovely architecture and wood work. The wait staff was very client oriented and accommodating. Our server made excellent suggestions regarding appetizers and provided guidance on portion sizes. I had the seafood stew and... More

My husband and I joined the patio at 1130 before seeing a matinee. As an experienced server at a busy downtown restaurant in Stratford, I knew to arrive early as it gets very busy at lunch for theatre go-ers. Despite this, we received sparce and virtually unexistant service. I know this industry in Stratford quite well and understand that there... More

Absolutely wonderful service, prompt and polite. Menu had a nice variety of dishes. Two of my guests opted to share a meal as they had been served a large breakfast at the B&B. They were not only accommodated but the meal was divided and plated onto two plates before being served, I was very impressed with that touch. Everyone at... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful dinner at The Parlour last night. While I enjoyed an amazing fall off the bone lamb dinner my boyfriend took part in the prime rib special that must have been over an inch thick and cooked to perfection! The service was excellent and thanks to some great reviews on line we were... More

The parlor is now under new management, and they made some changes to the menu. I used to quite enjoy the parlor when various local chefs would cycle through and add their own styles to the menus, but this newest change seems un-cared for, as far as the food goes. Was in for lunch with 3 others. One of my... More

The Parlour is one of those small town pubs that is better than expected. I have had several meals there and they have all been really good. Good meals combined with great staff and an interesting atmosphere hakes for a fantastic time. The prices are a little more that some of the other restaurants in the area, but in my... More

My wife and I dropped in for dinner on Sunday after a great day of shopping the many quaint stores that make up Stratford, Ontario. We considered the usual suspects for dinner but settled on a short walk to the Parlour - a wonderful pub attached to the Parlour Inn. We both enjoyed a great local brew from Black Swan... More

If you decide to eat in the cozy pub style lounge or the bit more formal dining room you will not be dissapoined. The fish special was amazing and the fettuccine bolagnese was another hit. Our server Josh was more than helpful with recommendations and his service was some of the best we've ever received. You must also try their... More
