Uplifting quality. After battering the Viking trail on the bikes, this was an oasis of good food, great friendly service with a little garden, perfect for chilling out and refreshing. Check out the real china cups!

The Parlour’s 3-course Christmas lunch was absolutely delicious. The freshest of food was perfectly cooked and featured delicious twists on classic dishes. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Birchington! 👍

Popped in on the off chance, been meaning to try for ages, food was first class and so was the service. I am going to make this a regular stop.
