Don't Overlook the Parlour

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... read 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

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

The five great things about this gastro-pub are; Sharon, the food, Sharon, the ambiance and Sharon. Sharon is the best. We arrived at the hotel that the pub is in for Valentine's Day weekend and found that the front desk had messed up our reservation in the hotel and in the pub for Valentine's night. On the second weekend of... More

Recommended by one of the staff from The Stone Maiden Inn, we were totally taken by pleasant surprise. The staff was very nice, and definitely recommended foods that other patrons found to be delicious. The sign above the main doors says "The Olde English Parlour", and it definitely lived up to the atmosphere. The place is decorated in a late... More

We were fortunate to have had the people at Mercer Hall recommend this restaurant to us as their dining was closed when we stayed there. Our meals were delicious, we both ordered prime rib with Yorkshire pudding. It rivals "the Keg" (better in our opinion) and was a lot more reasonable. The décor reminded me of our trip to England...

A little late with this review. We Celebrated New Years Eve at the Parlour with friends. The Parlour offered a selection of 5 course meals specially prepared for New years. We chose to dine at 7:30 p.m. Of the choices offered we chose the fillet of beef selection for 3 meals and the fourth chose the Cornish hen selection. From... More

We had the prime rib and the lamb shank. The prime rib was huge, and excellent. The lamb was also quite substantial and very good. Caesar salad was nice and full of garlic, just the way I like it. Also had the lobster bisque which was good. Service and atmosphere were also good.

If you want great service and amazing food this is the restaurant for you. The staff were friendly and made you feel as if you were the only people they were waiting on. My wife and I are already planning our next visit.
