“Got Better”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We wanted to have breakfast and found the Parlour Inn online and the prices looked reasonable. Very nice restaurant but had to wait before the waitress could meet us. Once greeted , we were given tepid coffee. The waitress was friendly but alone to serve the restaurant. I had bacon and eggs and my wife had French toasts and they were excellent. Our subsequent coffees were much better and the service picked up when a second waitress arrived. The atmosphere was great and so was the food (early coffee aside). Would have liked soft music in background as it was easy to hear conversations going on around us. Will return as the supper menu looks inviting.

“Good quick service & pub food”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I went to Stratford for the first time to see a play and walked around searching for a place to eat. The inn caught our eye as it was a historic building. We were seated on the patio and had prompt service for drinks and food. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. Bathrooms were a bit of a walk from the patio. Food wasn't anything special but tasty. Would go back if looking for a quick tasty meal in the city.

“It costs what for a burger!?”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I went here for the first time on their burger deal night.
We just wanted something new and fun to try. The food was fine, though it certainly wasn't the best burger in town, and the beer selection was current.
Once we got the bill though that made my decision to never go back. We waited 20 minutes for food, my burger toppings were wrong, and the bill was ridiculous.
We won't be going back unless it is for beer on the patio.

“Atmosphere plus good food”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Four of us went to dinner here pre-theatre and had a very nice experience. Reservations are a snap using the online booking and we were seated promptly on our arrival. The restaurant is located in the Parlour Inn in the heart of the the theatre district and the dining room and pub were quaint and cosy with the feeling of a British upscale pub. The menu was varied enough to allow a good choice for all. Everything from a quick bite to a full scale meal. They also offer a wide selection of beers and wines, with pairings on the menu for each dish. There were a couple of daily specials too. Service was excellent and the food arrived hot. We didn't have to wait for our check despite the fact that the place was quite busy with many diners enjoying a dinner before heading out to the theatre. Our server invited us to return after the performance to sample the dessert menu, which was decadent and varied. Another visit when we are in Stratford is definitely on the agenda.

“Good dinner with friends”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a really nice dinner here with friends. A great atmosphere with lots going on. Had a wonderful Caesar Salad which was one of the better I have had recently. Enjoyed the Chicken Supreme entree and could not finish it all. Husband had the Flat Iron Steak special and was really expressed. Friends loved the mushroom ravioli and the lamb sausage they thought was just okay. Their homemade fries and garlic aioli was to die for. Great attentive service.
