Beautiful fish and chips, the whole meal was delicious, my mum really enjoyed the Turkey and ham. The service was a little slow, but I think it was just a busy night and we were sat in an area where we were not easily seen, the staff were very nice and apologetic about this, I will be back and and would recommend to friends.

Our lunch was absolutely beautiful - only one small thing in that it took quite a while for our 2nd round of coffee's to come to the table - waiter/waitress only needed a gentle reminder - I believe the staff were busy with checking covid certs and dealing with people paying bills (which is all part of the business).

The food was excellent. Apart from the a la carte menu, there was also a special dish for the Halloween which was a Pumpkin Risotto with Teriyaki Chicken. This was very tastefully decorated and was delicious as is all the food at Gourmet Parlour. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I felt very comfortable and the meal was perfect.

We had the most wonderful time here. The food was delicious and our services were so friendly and helpful. We started with a lovely bottle of rosè which was recommended by our server and had amazing starters. Our steaks were cooked just how we liked and requested. Our server joked with us and other servers were more more willing to take care of us too. We tried to book in for a second meal but unsurprisingly there'd was no availability due to im sure everyone loves this spot and anyone who hasn't been needs to give them a go.

Extremely oily food and gone off cheesecake. Noone asked us if our food was ok, we would have told them this if they had asked but they were too busy all the time. Also saw them wiping coffee cups with rags to remove overspill just before serving.

Let me start by saying- the food is delicious!
It has been about 2 years since I was last here, and the portions have shrunk and the care to presentation is missing. I ordered avocado eggs, and received very little smashed avo, a light smear across the bread, and felt like the plate was half empty. But - the eggs were poached perfectly!
The staff seemed agitated and rushed. The atmosphere was very busy and loud. The bathrooms needed a good clean. It was still a great spot for brunch, I just hope they can bring back to relaxed and friendly atmosphere with gorgeous and delicious food.

I have been here a few times and loved the food before. They took my favourite dish huevos rancheros off the menu so I ordered the club sandwich. I asked for it on brown toast as opposed to Ciabatta and was told I had to stick with what is on the menu and no changes could be made. I saw that they cater for coeliac with Gluten free bread so can't see why they can't cater for other dietary needs.

Food was only average. Using frozen butternut squash for the superfood salad, which was disappointing.
Giving spaghetti as the kids pasta which is impractical and messy!
Lovely restaurant with nice staff, but food needs to match!

Restaurant wasn’t busy but food still took quiet a bit of time to come out of the kitchen ~40mins. Quality wasn’t great and in general is over priced. We were left waiting again for our bill at the end. Not impressed.

Terrible service! We are waiting ages to even be asked if we wanted drinks ! A table of 6 came in after us and got their food before we even got starters! The mains came out without our starter and When we asked about it , it was brought out and we were told we would not be charged for it but we were! We were waiting ridiculous amounts of time for drinks even when it got quiet.
The waiter was very friendly but completely overwhelmed with catering
for the outside area!
There were hardly any of the desserts available that were on the menu! The food was not great by any means!
Will not be returning
