Hands down one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a while. My companion and I purchased a package through the hotel which included accommodation and dinner, as well as breakfast. The dinner was incredibly generous, including a starter, main and dessert. I was...More

I had lunch here today with a group of 16 friends. We had reservations so the restaurant knew to expect us in addition to their normal lunch clientele. There was one waitress responsible for our ‘room’. A glaring oversight on managements part. It took her...More

We went as a group for a dinner in October. The menu was varied and the food was good. The service was awkward. The waitress seemed to not be able to stand still at a table to be able to take an order or know...More

We have celebrated our wedding anniversary two years in a row at The Parlour and have enjoyed both. The food and service were excellent and the prices reasonable for the value. I recommend reservations at 7:45pm on theater nights to avoid the hectic turnover. By...More

We did not have a reservation (Thursday at around 6p in October) but they were able to accommodate us right away. We had the Prime Rib and added a Cesar Salad and dessert. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented. My husband likes prime rib but...More

Wide selection of excellent dishes. Flexible. Set in an attractive hotel in the centre of Stratford. Choice allows for "fancy" dining or just an excellent burger etc. Service is outstanding. Easy to access - reservations recommended. Perfect for before or after attending the Stratford Festival.More

I visited this place many years ago...It was always a bit contrived to resemble a British pub, but had some local character and characters. It all seems a bit sterile now. Food used to be OK but not great - I could give the same...More
