If London (never mind just Canary Wharf) has a better menu to cater for all tastes than The Parlour’s, I’d like to see it.

If you and your company can’t decide on a single cuisine, don’t. Life is full of too many compromises.

Whether you’re looking to just casual drinks, a bite to eat or a full blown meal, the very stylish Parlour offers three seating areas – dining, bar stools and sofas

With an extensive alcohol menu as long as both arms (non of which I could try being a non alcoholic (womp, womp womp) and food to please even the most indecisive (me) including burgers, steaks, puddings, sandwiches, salads, flatbreads and sharing boards. See their menu for more details.

I opted for a seafood/Italian dish, the crayfish and crab linguine (£9.95).

Crayfish and crab linguine - The Parlour Bar and Restaurant

Is there anything worse than dry pasta? The Parlour made no such mistake with a lovely tomato sauce coating the dish, seasoned perfectly with just enough herbs and red onions added a little more texture and crunch. A slight hint of chilli made things a little more interesting so it gave your mouth a little kick (in a good way).

There was also a fair amount of seafood too for £10 which I was pleased about. Onto dessert.

Baked Alaska - The Parlour Bar & Restaurant

I wasn’t too sure what a Baked Alaska was although I had heard of it. It came with a little copper pan of sauce with sweet cherries, which I wasn’t entirely sure what to do with. Every time I poured some onto that white fluffy top it trickled right off!

I finally had a eureka moment and worked it out and revealed the sponge hiding underneath. For a moment I thought it was one giant piece of cream! Not that I would have turned it down had it been that. What did it taste like? Melted marshmallow. Mmmmmm.

The light sponge gladly soaked up the sauce up like a, well a sponge… It was all very indulgent and although the cream was light too, the whole dessert felt very heavy after a main course – no regrets however.
