By looking at the reviews, the Palour looks exceptional but we were disappointed. We had dinner reservations for the Saturday night, I didn't think we would get in with it being the Saturday before Valentines but we did. The restaurant was very slow, not many patrons. The service was slow and our table left unattended between courses. We walked away... More

Went here a second time for breakfast during our winter getaway weekend. The dining room is lovely, but the dishes on the table weren't all clean - we had to send one back, and there were lipstick stains on a cup. The service was friendly but slow, and the meal was mediocre - too-hard eggs cooked on a too-hot grill,... More

I was taken here for my birthday. This was a great choice. The table had Steak and Ale pie, and pork tenderloin. The steak was so tender and the tenderloin was simply delightful. After saying that I was glad it was my birthday when the bill came. This definitely is a $$$ restaurant.

Very pleasant restaurant for lunch or dinner, especially when added to a Stratford Festival visit. Good food and excellent service with reasonable prices. Located close to the theatre venues.

My family and I love to eat at new restaurants and we were staying at the parlour inn for the night so we thought we should try the restaurant ! Unfortunately there was only one waitress for the entire restaurant, which we assumed it was because it wasn't expected to be a busy night, but having more than one staff... More

My husband and I visited tonight while in Stratford for a night away before our second baby arrives. We had some of the recommended favorites; (prime rib) nachos to start, salmon for my husband and curry for me. All excellent. We also had the pavlova for dessert and although it wouldn't normally be my first choice we were convinced by... More

A group of us went to the bar at the Parlour Inn on a Friday night. There were between 10 - 15 people and we said we didn't care if we had tables or sat/stood at the bar. It was clear from the moment we got there, that the staff (one waitress in particular) did not want us there. I... More
