Not as good as usual. Slow service. Tiny steak - what happened to the big Frosty rib-eye? No mushroom or tomato either. Flavour good but not enough for the money (£20). Burger better. Still pretty good, but not up to usual high standards.

Nice food in a good atmosphere, it's a little more expensive than I'd like to pay in terms of bar prices.
However, it's a really nice place and always good to eat and drink there

I came with the family for a Sunday roast after friend recommended it to us and I'll happily recommend it to everyone. One of the best Sunday roasts I've ever had! Great location, great athmosphere and great food!

We were really looking forward to enjoying a Sunday Dinner that is referred to as the best in Manchester. We dined at 6pm on Sunday 10th September. The ribs for starter were tasty and delicately seasoned. My husbands lamb was tasty. The stuffing was very tasty and 3 of us enjoyed the lovely Yorkshire puds. We were bitterly disappointed with the beef. My daughters and I ordered beef and despite it being lovely and pink it was very tough. I dosed it with the gravy (which could have had more depth) and added a good spoonful of the horseradish which was perfect with just the right amount of kick. It was a meal to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was a let down with the beef which should have been the star. Also there were only two puddings on offer...one with pine nuts and the other with courgette. Needless to say the children opted to go home and enjoy dads chocolate birthday cake and we joined them (but married it with Floralus Moscatel wine). I wonder if the fabulous Sunday Dinner is experience only between 12-2?
The service wouldn't have been commented on if the food had been good but despite the very lovely and warm welcome we received when we arrived and we're quickly seated we were just as quickly forgotten and had to chase up menus and in the end felt like we were inconveniencing the waiting staff.
Such a disappointing experience for a restaurant with a wonderful reputation - perhaps we just unlucky!

Went for Sunday lunch with two friends. I ordered the vegetarian roast dinner, which was mostly good but the portion size was pretty small. The main event was a mushroom wellington which when compared to the amount of beef my friend got on his roast, looked tiny. The roast potatoes weren't very good, i sent them back as they were hard in the middle and barely looked cooked on the outside. When the replacements came out, they weren't much better and I was given the excuse that the veggie roast potatoes are cooked differently than the meat ones. I think thats a poor excuse as i'm not a chef but can make good, fluffy veggie-friendly roasties at home so i'd expect to be served good ones when i'm paying £12.50 for a roast.

Also the only cubicle in the mens toilet didn't have a toilet seat, which isn't very hygienic!

We met up with some American friends for a leisurely lunch before they flew back out to the US.
The Parlor completely suited the occasion as it was informal, relaxed, had a nice British "pub vibe" and we'd heard it did a great traditional Sunday lunch.
Service was cheerful, efficient & friendly, atmosphere was vibrant and buzzing, and the Sunday lunch was fantastic - beautifully presented, with a good choice of lamb, pork or beef roasts and very generous portions.
The roasts were all served with nicely cooked veggies, delicious cauliflower cheese, stuffing, yorkshire pud and crunchy roast potatoes accompaniments, with extra gravy brought to the table without us having to ask.
The only complaint was that by the time we ate (3pm) the pub had run out of the lamb roast choice and only had 1 lamb left.
It was tasty, but it was just all the crunchy end bits and not pink lamb meat.
Nevertheless, would definitely visit again, & it was well worth the drive from Chester where we live.

Fantastic British food obviously made with the freshest and best ingredients possible. I will definitely come back, especially to try the selection of beer! I had the lamb which was beautifully cooked and I stole a few chips from the burger and fish which were equally to die for. Small menu reflected a good range of well thought out dishes. Lovely service and The Parlour is the perfect description of this little homey restaurant.

We visited The Parlour on a Sunday and we had a perfectly adequate roast lunch. We were a bit surprised that there was a very limited menu - only roasts being served, with a veggie roast and small kids' roast option - but that was it! The chef was very kind and made a cheese sandwich for our 3 year old, who didn't fancy a roast, but this was a special request.
We would probably go elsewhere next time because we might want more of a varied menu. If a pub/restaurant you is going to ONLY do roasts, the quality really has to be exceptional and for us it was just OK.

Excellent night at The Parlour. Great service. Got a table with a last minute booking. Brilliant food. Only downside was that the music was way too loud and rock-like. I was there with my parents and that was a bit disappointing. We asked to turn it down and they did which was nice but it somehow went back up. Will definitely go back though.

Had an astounding meal here recently. We had steak and they are truly the best steak in Chorlton if not Manchester! Sourced from the local butchers and cooked to perfection by the amazing chef(s). Followed by a perfectly sized cheese board. Lots of unusual craft beers on and plenty of new and interesting Gin and Rum. Fantastic music selection as well and the staff are lovely! We will be returning soon and bringing many more with us. Thank you The Parlour for a great evening x

Really can't fault this experience in Parlour. I've been before and it's always been good, if not with a slightly limited lunch menu. But the meal me and my girlfriend had this evening was fantastic and faultless. Would 100% recommend to anyone unsure about giving this place a go. Another one of Chorlton's fine eateries.

Not as good a portion size for the money as has previously been. Forgot our drinks, gravy very watery, and staff not very attentive. Used to be very good but feels like it's had a change of staff and although the food was nice, it's not got the wow factor it had before.

Staff tried hard but seemed quite stressed and didn't know where to seat people when we arrived, despite having reservations. We unfortunately found a shard of glass in one of our roasts but staff tried their best to rectify the situation and offered us a free meal. The roasts were quite average considering the price but the desserts were brilliant.

Firstly let me say food wise it was excellent. Perfectly cooked roast dinner and very tasty. Starters and deserts also very good.

We visited on Mother's Day which was obviousky busy.

On arrival we were asked to wait as our table was not available. We waited 20 minutes to be seated. Two of our party ordered starters which arrived quite quickly. However, our main courses took over an hour to arrive. This was despite asking on two occasions and other diners that had arrived after us had already finished and left!

As mentioned the roast diner was excellent and the complimentary prosecco for Mother's Day was a nice touch. However this was spoilt as we were told on the dot of 4pm (2 hours after our table was booked) that our table was needed as the next diners had arrived and a reserved sign was promptly placed in front of us!

So we did not have time to finish the above prosecco and promptly left and felt like we were being asked to leave.

This coupled with very slow service spoilt the quality of the food I'm afraid.

It was our second visit to the Parlour. It's location is perfect for a pre concert meal as it is just a short drive into Manchester. I love the atmosphere of quiet conversation - very relaxing. The food is superb with a menu of quality rather than quantity.
