    Cream tea afternoon
    After visiting today for an afternoon cream tea, I have to leave a review. This is my second time here. The staff are amazing, so friendly and welcoming. The food was exceptional and the owners are quite lovely. Previously, we went to a movie night in the vaults and this also was stunning. An intimate room with wine and a fantastic ambience. We will be returning soon and congratulations on a fabulous and versatile venue. Highly recommended ***********
    Thank you very much Rachael! Great to see you both again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

    Cream Tea of the topest of notches!
    Second time in this stunningly renovated mini Palace of Trowbridge. From the warm and very butler-esk welcome to the fantastic staff attention, and delightful interaction and genuine interest from the owners about our experience. Besides the fact of a beautiful professional cream tea and even Earl Grey from the owners mother's teapot no less, the scones and cake are delectable!!! Cannot wait to go back for another event as the other in the dungeon cinema was equally as esquisite. Thank you so much and thank you Aga for your lovely conversations whilst still attending to our every need! (Adrian & Rachael)
    Thank you so much Adrian and Rachael! It was great to see you both at Parade House again, and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Best wishes from the Parade House team.

    Beautiful Georgian venue
    As part of an Open Doors event we visited this Grade 1 listed Georgian house in Trowbridge. It's not generally open to the public as it's mainly used now as a venue for weddings, celebrations and corporate events. It would make a lovely setting for a special celebration as it is light and airy (good for photography) and has been beautifully well maintained. There is a cinema room in the basement with an adjoining bar, showing a mixture of contemporary and classic films and these are bookable events. If you get the chance it may be well worth attending one of these for a special night out.
    Thank you for coming to our Heritage Open Day. We hope you'll come back very soon to one of our weekly movie screenings or a bar night! All details are on our website at paradehousetrowbridge.co.uk/events

    Fantastic Evening
    We chose Parade House for our company event. We had a fantastic evening, Simon, Carey and their team work so hard to deliver a fun packed evening. All of our 30 guests said how much fun they had and how cool the venue is. The evening ran without a hitch and the food provided by The Hidden Chef was superb. Nothing was too much trouble for Simon & Carey and their can do attitude, organisation and attention to detail was next level. Thank you Parade House, you set the bar high and hit the moon!
    Thank you Ben. It was an enormous pleasure to host your event and look after all of your lovely guests. We're delighted that you had a great evening, and hope to see you all back at Parade House again very soon.

    Absolutely stunning!
    Having just visited Parade house for a Regency tea we have all come away completely stunned by this amazing venue. The building itself is beautiful, the rooms have been decorated in superb fashion of the period, the service was the best ever, everyone really engages with the visitors and the afternoon tea was fabulous, far too much to eat and boxes were provided to take the uneaten cakes home. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough, just amazing!
    Thank you so much! We're delighted you enjoyed your afternoon and we hope to see you back here at Parade House very soon.

    A hidden gem - a wonderful evening!
    What a gem of a place! My first time at the Friday night film screening. A warm welcome, a stunning setting (so many original features). This was a night out with a girlfriend and it felt good to try somewhere new and to head out of Bath. Very much looking forward to the beer tasting evening and will definitely be finding out more about private hire for a special birthday! And they even make their own honey - what's not to love!
    Thank you so much! It was a great pleasure to welcome you to Parade House and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

    Stunning setting with attentive service
    Stunning setting, superb service and glorious food. We went for a funeral wake, and I was blown away by the beauty and courteousness of the experience. (It would be a wonderful venue for a wedding or special birthday or celebration) .The rooms were delightful to explore, and the extra touches of so many original features, art, and flowers throughout the light bright space was wonderful. The staff were very attentive and helped made us feel special for our high tea in the ballroom, just as our deceased friend would have wanted. And I hadn’t realised that we had overstayed the time for our booking, thank you to the staff for being so gentle with us.
