The Parlour Bar and Restaurant
You know a place is worth going to when it has been in business for hundreds of years. The Parlour is one of those places. Built in 1735, it is believed to be the oldest public bar in Newtownards. 300 years later, the premises was taken over by Jim and Dawn in 2012 and renamed The Parlour.
They do great pub grub made with locally sourced ingredients. The area around the Ards Peninsula has a particularly full larder. Superb meat, fish and vegetables are a stone’s throw away, not to mention the delicious Glastry Farm ice-creams and sorbets that are made near Kircubbin. They’re all on the menu here.
Sunday lunch is really popular. You can enjoy a 28day prime aged 8oz steak all day, everyday. Their Beef is all from the award-winning local butcher H & J Carnduff. You’ll want to try the two course special for £12.95 and everything else that comes out of the kitchen.
