The drink menu is amazing and Anna, the barwoman, invents interesting and exquisite drinks. Live music was also definitely a plus. We'll go back next time we're in London!

We had a lovely time here, the staff were super attentive and made sure to recommend drinks as well as ask what alcohol/tastes we liked to ensure we got the right ones. The food was great - we only had the small dishes, but these accompanied the cocktails perfectly.

Food and Cocktails were excellent. Best Squid I have tasted. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Live music was not Jazz - shame about this as this was the reason we booked this bar.

We had a lovely time at the Parrot. They were able to accommodate a slightly larger party (6 persons instead of 4 booked) and the service was reasonably good - although considering the bar is quite small, you'd expect more attention from the staff. The live music was pleasant and the cocktails are fun and delicious. My only criticisms are that it would be nice if they took our coats as there was nowhere to place them, and that the poufs are very uncomfortable to sit on. Overall would definitely go back.

It was ok.. not really a restaurant though. More like a few bar meals on the menu.. very small venue. Good music though. Not many places to sit down. I believe only licensed for 40 guests. Didn’t see Idris the night we went ;-)
