Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I travel from London to meet a friend for lunch who travels from Waterloo. The food and service are good, and we enjoy getting reacquainted for a couple of hours with no hassle. The menu changes in the months between our visits, so we can opt to try new things. I tend to always have the fish and chips....thankfully that always seems to be a choice. The wine list has reasonable choices by the glass or bottle. There is a parking lot for guests, which is particularly convenient for us. And reservations can readily be made with opentable."

  • "I would definitely return to try more desserts. The Pavlova was amazing, and a nice surprise for our birthday guest. The Vegetarian Curry was enjoyed by everyone at the table."

  • "We've dined here for years. It's a nice balance of English Pub and up-scale. A great bar if you just want drinks. It is kid friendly, but I wouldn't recommend it as kid friendly. If you're kids aren't picky eaters and they are well behaved, then fine. But if they need a bit more stimulation, go elsewhere (for everybody's benefit). The food is excellent, but priced a little on the high side compared to other good restaurants that are close by. Also the new menu is rather limited. I'm never disappointed when I eat here, but with the wide variety of choice that we have in Stratford, the Parlour isn't always my first choice."

  • "My husband had the prime rid and I had the strip loin, I found both fairly bland. The presentation and vegetables were well done but I needed quite a bit of salt and pepper to enjoy the meat."

  • "The service was excellent. The food was amazing, well presented, plenty of it. Even though it was busy, we were never rushed. Will definitely be back and will recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "I took me and my girlfriend here for her birthday. They were absolutely splendid. The food was great, the atmosphere was beautiful, place was quiet and they even gave use a free pavlova for my girlfriends birthday. I strongly recommend The Parlour for any occasion."

  • "The Parlour was one of two restaurants in Stratford who used Open Table. The menu looked great, and I do love me some dining points. The meal was good, but the pavolva dessert was definitely the stand-out. Split with a friend! It's a bit pricey for pub food, but it's on par with inflated Stratford prices. It's also a quick walk to the Avon Theatre (where we saw a show), and the service was great so there was never any worry of us being late for our show!"

  • "The atmosphere is pleasant, quiet and has character, given the historic feel to the building. The server was helpful, made suggestions and willing to engage in a conversation to answer questions. The spinach salad with goat cheese and granola was excellent. Flank steak, salmon and prime rib were all excellent quality and presentation was appealing. Too full for dessert, but specaility coffee was a nice ending to a wonderful dining experience before theatre."

  • "We visit Stratford restaurants before attending a show. After driving in from the GTA, we want to relax in a quiet place, enjoy good food and drink, and be pampered. The Parlour has a nice enough ambiance, and our waitress was absolutely wonderful ... but the food is nothing to write home about. The appetizers (escargots & house flatbread) were WAY too greasy. My roast beef (seemed safest in an English-themed locale) was quite good. My wife couldn't finish her burger, saying it was like shoe leather - no juiciness at all - our dog liked it! Also, I had asked in advance for a "nice quiet nook" ... they put is in an aisle surrounded by tables of six to eight. Still, the noise level was not bad at all, but the mood factor was a zero:-)"

  • "The Palour has been a favourite dining spot for several years, initially with my young daughter on our yearly treks to Stratford and more recently with the ladies for our annual weekend in Stratford. There is always great food, very attentive service, an interesting menu, and a lovely atmosphere. I have never been disappointed. Plus, the hotel rooms upstairs are convenient, spacious, clean, and well appointed. We will be back again next year!"
