“Such a lovely place!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

My husband,two jack russells and I visit once or twice every week.The good is excellent (not just good pub food) they really can cook! The staff are a marvel; friendly, attentive, efficient ( basically they are intelligent and genuinely seem to care about their customers).The atmosphere is so relaxed yet efficient ( it's so "not Chorlton"). And they love dogs!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We visited The Parlour for the Sunday lunch as we had seen such good reviews. We were seated almost straight away, despite being told it would take an hour as they were quite busy.

We ordered our food quickly and it was served to us within about 5 minutes. It felt quite rushed. The food looked really good when it arrived. However when we tasted it, it was far too sweet and didnt taste right.

The red cabbage was extremely rich, cooked in some sort of red wine or perhaps port and it just tainted the whole meal with this taste. The yorkshire pudding was okish - not a lot of taste, but then again I am fussy and do enjoy my Yorkshire Puddings. The meat was quite good, not fatty so was pleased with that. The roast potatoes were nice, as were the honey parsnips.

Unfortunately overall, I do think that it was either the sauce the cabbage was cooked in or the gravy that spoilt it, for me it wasn't a true Sunday lunch and went away a bit disappointed. It was also very rushed, we were in and out all within 35 minutes which was a shame. Also with being very busy and sat right near the kitchen, we were being knocked and were having to move quite a lot for the staff to get through with the meals.

Wouldn't hurry back.

I've eaten here at lunch and supper as well as sampled the beer on route - the parlour is the most consistent place to meet and eat in chorlton.

“Great Sunday lunch, great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

One of the best Sunday lunches I have had, and that includes any cooked by myself. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly service. Will be back soon.
