SquareMeal Review of The Parlour - Canada Square



The guys behind Docklands’ spiffiest ‘bar/kitchen/cocktail lounge’ clearly had fun while shopping for accessories to fill this all-dayer. It’s like a trolley dash through the Conran Shop – Bertoia bar stools, Eames rockers & the rest look ‘super trendy’ under the modish exposed ductwork, & there’s design overload on the tables too. Clipboards, pegs, takeaway cartons & pots of herbs are, frankly, a surfeit of ‘stuff’. The Brit/global allsorts menu is very busy too, a crammed page of sharing boards, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, salads & mains. ‘Quirky’ presentation occasionally trumps flavour: neither prawn ‘lollipops’ (not deveined) nor underpowered Thai beef salad tasted half as good as they looked. Overall, it can seem ‘distinctly average’, but the vibe inside & out is kicking; ‘yummy’ cocktails & an everything-by-the-glass approach to wine are also commendable.

Lovely looking restaurant and a nice atmosphere. Good overall service but the only thing I would say is that our food (mainly burgers) arrived within 5 minutes of ordering however, the food was really good and very tasty. We had 2 desserts to share between 5 of us (chocolate brownie and a knickerbocker glory) both were delicious and next time I will order my own dessert so I don't have to

My first time visiting The Parlour. Great place to go for after work drinks and dinner. We were seated promptly and the place wasn't too busy inside but still took a while for our food order to be taken. It seemed like we were being served by 2 different people and had to ask twice for another drink. Overall a good place to go, value for money.

I confess: I'm frightened of Canary Wharf. The proper grown-ups (with suits 'n' everything!); the incalculable heights of Canada Square that make my brain go funny; the number of supremely hammered folk before 6pm on a Friday. (Triple that when the sun's out / it's a bull market / it's all gone Lehman Brothers). So I faced my fears and visited the Parlour one evening, arriving on my tod. Firstly, a parlour it ain't. It's raucous and rammed, with mercifully high ceilings to dissipate some of the volume. Someone's been pretty smart with design, as tables topped with honeycombed ceramics plus a hint of dogtooth and tweedy upholstery prevent the place being entirely soulless. The staff I encountered were very cordial (contrary to many reviews) and held up admirably under the strain of a billion traders out on the razzle, spilling out across the lawn. Cocktails are fairly priced for these parts, or maybe I was seduced by everything being listed as £9.95 rather than the actual tenner it means. It's also nice to see that everything's available by the glass, from Sancerre through to Chapel Down Brut. There's bar food to soak up the excess, with the usual suspects of the posh pub grub realm. Tasty ballast includes hummus and baba ganoush, or a meat platter so gluttonous it may be solely responsible for global warming. (I counted double pig, mini burgers and token poultry for good measure). A seafood option seems the more refined choice with its frilly blinis and smoked salmon, until you spy 'prawn lollipops'. A deeply disturbing concept. Anyhoo, sharing is the way to go, but don't expect the nibbles to go far; order a couple of dishes if there's more than a few of you. I can't speak for the sit-down offering, but the ring-fenced dining area overlooks the kitchen and is slickly put together. Still a deafening spot though, unless your snide intention is to sidle up to your unsuspecting target. If you're unwinding after work, on the pull or partying for no reason in particular, the Parlour's probably alright. The music is loud - so very, very loud - and the bar queues are long, but every group in the vicinity appears to be having a ball. It's entirely down to personal preference that it's akin to my own version of hell.
