This is a lovely building. The decoration is heavy old paneling but there is lots of light. Very welcoming and comfortable. Service is good and friendly. The roast beef was good but my favourite is the pavlova. As always excellent. We did not stay in...More

We're often hesitant to eat in hotel restaurants but were so happy we decided to eat in during our stay at the Parlour Inn. We learned that the prime rib isn't offered as often during the off season so 'settled' on the Steak Frites. We...More

3 out of 6 of our party had the Prime Rib and all said it was “the best”! I don’t know what all the hype is about the Pavlova- it was merely a lot of whip cream on some merengue! It was nasty! Service was...More

As soon as we walked in we were impressed by the beautiful wood work and stained glass. This restaurant is a mix of more casual options and higher end meals. Our waitress was friendly and really worked hard to keep patrons happy on a busy...More

We visited for the first time last year (I wrote a review) after our favourite for many years changed hands. This year we went back on consecutive nights and pork tenderloin, salmon and a stir fry were all excellent. We caved in and split the...More

I am a foodie. We love great restaurants and unique experiences and interesting environments. This is none of the above. Save yourself the hundreds of dollars. We booked it because we were going to theatre and all others were already booked. Now we know why....More

4 ladies staying at the Inn & went there for dinner one night. I had the fish & chips-it was delicious! Everyone like their dinners & we order Pavlova between all of us. Very sweet but different. I would recommend this restaurant.
