    The menu is quite limited. Overpriced for what it is. The dining room itself is full of character and overlooks Parker’s Piece, perfect for a summer’s evening.

    I love the Parker’s Tavern restaurant decor and ambiance. There were 4 of us. We had 2 watermelon salads, a pea soup and a Caesar salad. All lovely. The pea soup was a clear broth with fresh peas. For mains we had a sirloin steak, a chicken schnitzel, a venison and a fish pie with a spinach side. All very good. However the spinach was creamed spinach and I really wanted some fresh cooked greenery -wish the spinach and green beans were simply steamed - too much cream is heart attack food. Not sure why the menu has become so fat rich. For dessert we had a Basque Cheesecake, Cambridge Burnt Cream and Chocolate Fondant. All were excellent.

    This was a graduation celebration. We ordered champagne, the server had no idea how many glasses we would get from a bottle. Two of the main courses were cold. We were a party of 6 and the others had almost finished by the time ours returned. The potatoes were now warm but the meat was still cold and they gave us the same beans. I had spooned some of these onto the original plate so I ended up with half a plate of cold beans. It was an awful course - cold venison, cold puréed potatoes and a few cold beans. The server had no idea which wine to suggest with the main courses and had to go an ask again. Cheese course - guess what, she had no idea which cheeses are served. This server was a student, working to pay her studies and not at all trained in the restaurant industry. Perhaps Parker's Tavern should think about training their staff before sending them to face the public. Parker's Tavern will also inundate you with emails and sms to try to stop you booking and not showing up. In these messages they threaten to charge £20 per person if someone drops out of your party, so make sure nobody is ill or misses their bus. You will receive emails and sms messages asking for the same thing. They are thorough in getting you to commit to arriving, but not so good at looking after you once you're inside. Such a pity for such a price.
