Had the goats cheese salad with added chicken. Came to 16.50..
Crazy price for a small salad...not even a slice of bread with it. Salad was grand just not worth the price

Staff under pressure but that’s the same as alot of places so can’t fault them for that

Menu pricey for lunch apart from the soup!

Fabulous food - went at lunch time so it was very busy so we had to wait a little to order our food but it was worth the wait

Food and coffee were delicious, service was fantastic and the tables were spaced out and people sat strategically which for me is very important in this current climate.

Turkey and ham, mash and gravy was delicious but veg was uncooked, I had to send back the sprouts as they were raw. Wine was very tasty. Nice setting. Perhaps we just got unlucky with the veggies!

It wasn’t clear from your website that you had to preorder the tapas so we were very disappointed that this wasn’t an option. We ordered the movember special which was to have mixed house fries. Ours didn’t have the mixed fries or the bacon on the burger and fries that did come weren’t cooked fully. Also the restaurant was cold. Not sure that we will be back.

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.
