The food was wonderful and the service was very good. We will definitely be going again. My husband had the steak and kidney pie followed by orange and apricot bread and butter pudding with grand marnier and I had the roast ribeye beef.

Delicious lunch today at The Parlour. Melt-in-the-mouth slow cooked pork followed by Grand Marnier and orange bread and butter pudding - unlike any bread and butter pudding I have ever tasted and totally scrumptious! Good and friendly service as usual. A local restaurant that can be highly recommended.

Thank Carol F
