My friend and I were celebrating my 65th birthday in Stratford (I was returning to Toronto after a 25 year absence after moving to Alberta) anyhow my friend is a "regular" in Stratford and hadn't been to The Parlour in some years.

The parlour is part of the vintage group and we were expecting similar standard to their niagara on the lake properties. That is not to say that this is not a good place to stay we just had different expectations. The shuttle to and from the theatre was a great touch and the location is nearby the centre of town.

We were in town to see a play at Stratford theatre and dined here for our 25th Anniversary and we were not disappointed. We had the 3 course dinner with caeser salad, filet mignon and pavlova for dessert. The restaurant is in a heritage building in downtown Stratford and it's decor is like an old English pub. A bit pricey... More

We were running late and had theatre tickets, but in no time at all, we were relaxed and enjoying a lovely glass of wine and bread thanks to the efficiency of Shelby, the best server in Stratford. The steak is quite good and the room is nice, but really, all the staff were great, especially Shelby, dealing with a very... More

We went with a large group (20+) for an after theater dessert of Pavlova - a hugh meringue dessert which was both delicious and an experience with a story to go with it. Our server was pleasant and attentive, despite the late hour, and multiple checks involved.

We purchased the breakfast deal with our room stay. I had the delicious French toast with crisp bacon and my husband had the eggs with bacon, hash browns and toast with a side of fruit. Everything was tasty and hit the spot. The waitress was personable and efficient. The restaurant itself is almost a work of art, like stepping back... More

We hadn't been here in a few years so we came back for lunch recently. I made a reservation for eight of us using Open Table but when we showed up, there was no reservation recorded. Although they were crowded, they found a spot for the eight of us and we had a very good lunch. When I got home,... More

Alcoholic drinks are overpriced and small. Food is overpriced and mediocre. When you spend $30 to $50 on a steak dinner, one expects a high grade of meat. If you do, don't eat here. The meat was tough and sinewy. The ambiance is nice in a very pub-like atmosphere, but as soon as you start eating or drinking, the "ambiance"... More

We hadn't been in several years since it was called The Old English Parlour. We came for lunch on the patio on a lovely sunny afternoon and had great service with Amy. She was so accommodating, she put our lunch leftovers (delicious reuben sandwiches) in the fridge until we came back for supper! We sat outside again for supper and... More
