We are an all day and late night serving PARLOUR, with wonderful food from Chef/Owner Jesse Dunford Wood; Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and late night dinner. Dishes range from an ‘interesting’ Full English and Toast-Your-Own-Brekkie, to Cow Pie and Chicken Kyiv, and Toasted Marshmallow Wagon Wheel to finish.

Creative cocktails, (a Not-in-Hill Perhaps?) and craft beer from Hackney to Hawaii keep up the standards in the bar. Wine doesn’t get overlooked either, with most of the concise list available by both the glass and carafe.

Menus change throughout the day, and there is something to eat and drink whatever the time.

We do not encourage naughty wandering children in the evening , but saying that we do welcome everyone during the day.

Lousy place which is a shame as the Parlour is a beautiful pub. The decor has a charming Victorian feel and attracts a nice mix of easy going clientèle. The atmosphere is generally relaxed which may contribute to the complacency of the staff. 15 min for an average cocktail not including a 10 min wait at the bar for service. The bar staff are miserable and do not example customer service. all! They are not observant and do not take note as who has been waiting longer than others at the bar. When you gently remind the bar staff that you were waiting before the customer on either side of you, they simply ignore you without apology or acknowledgment. No smiles or thank you's or any attempt to win back your customer favour. Staff training is hugely lacking.

For charging up to £9 per cocktail which tastes average and with a wait time of an average 25min per drink, I'd rather make use of my time and go to a bar that is more equipped at serving larger numbers more efficiently with a taste experience that is worthy of the price tag.

Poor experience and I'm not a fussy customer. Parlour is quite dreadful.

If you are able to sell your firstborn & afford the experience of the Chef's table it is truly an experience! For my bro's 18th our parents splashed out. The food literally keeps on coming & is thoroughly delicious. From beautiful meat & fish dishes to the ridiculous amount of starters & Chef Jesse channelling Willy Wonka in front of your eyes so your dessert is literally on the table (albeit on tin foil)... Can't fault. Stunning.

Great dinner party. Lovely sharing food. Loved the Seabass & Cocktails. My other half and pals loved the beer range. Best bit is the staff, team and atmosphere Very helpful, happy, considerate and knowledgeable. You can tell its a good place by the crowd in there. Thank you. See you soon


Excellent new gastro pub/restaurant for the Queens Park/Kensal Rise area. Ate there last night and the food was delicious, service excellent and friendly. Sunday brunch menu looks great too. Will be going back again soon.
