Nice quiet place during the week. For those of you who have lots of energy, come on Friday.... It's Salsa night!!! Quick, friendly service and freshly made/ cooked food on site.

Extremely well looked after by the staff (Dan) and made to feel welcome. We enjoyed some lovely food including hand made pizzas that are some of the best we have ever tasted. City Centre Bar so we weren't expecting much but The Blue Parrot really excels . Good atmosphere, good food and great service looking forward to going back

Popped in here for a bite to eat and a drink before attending an event at a music store up the road. Our waitress was very friendly and we had the Nachos, chicken wings and fries. All very tasty. Only disappointment was that at 6.30pm they could not offer a dessert of any kind.

The place was very busy which might account for the rather long wait for the food to arrive which itself wasn't bad i had the house burger and a bottle of the house red which were both reasonably priced. Not the most relaxing place to eat but not the worst either.

I must say at first that the staff member who served us was polite and friendly, although he had to go and check if the kitchen was still serving food (8pm). It was, and the food was typical pub style fast food dressed up to look more interesting. The lady who served it was very nice though. The music was... More

We decided to meet at the blue parrot for a friends birthday early evening for some food and drinks as it was central and easy for us all to get too as some had travelled up and got a hotel in town, we arrived and was greeted by friendly staff and sat down and looked through the menu, the cocktail...
