The Parlour Bar & Restaurant
is believed to be the oldest public bar in Newtownards Previously known as the Old Cross Inn, it was built in 1735. Nearly 300 years later, Jim and Dawn took over the premises at the start of 2012, and on March 17 of that year the pub and restaurant was opened and rebranded as The Parlour.
Well known and respected as publicans in the town - they had and still run the extremely popular Tudor Tavern in the town - they have transformed the Old Cross into a beautiful, well run bar and restaurant, serving excellent food and attracting a wide range of clientel, from those wishing to enjoy a marvellous pub meal or celebrating a special occasion with that something extra.
In the short time the Parlour has been trading, there has been nothing but excellent reports on the standard of food, service and general ambience of the premises.
We offer entertainment from local artists including acoustic sets from Sam Gribben. Please contact us for further details.
A beautiful bar, great staff and wonderful food.
