We have just returned from another visit to see family over in Newtown and once again had another great meal in Parkers. The cafe has recently been decorated and looks much brighter and the new lighting also makes a difference. Whilst this may not be the cheapest place to eat in Newtown it is certainly in my opinion the best... More

Having gone into Parkers on several occasions with one pushchair and friends I went in there again with my daughter who also had a pushchair meaning that there were 2 adults and 2 pushchairs. I was left speechless when as we were sitting down and moving the pushchairs so that we were causing less of an obstruction I was astonished... More

Thank you for your review. However, we never say to anybody about making a mess as it doesn't take a few minutes to clean. However, we do say to parents with prams that if you are obscuring the walkway to please move them as it's a hazard, for my staff going back and forth to the kitchen with full trays... More

Dropped in to Parkers today for a quiet lunch with the wife. Parkers was fairly busy but this didn't stop the staff greeting us and making us welcome straight away. Service as always was polite, friendly and very quick. I ordered an all day breakfast and the other half a burger. As expected we had time to drink a cuppa... More

We visited Parkers on 15/12/16 for our annual xmas party and were greeted by friendly staff waiting to take our drinks order. The food arrived a short while later with no extended delay. Everything was hot, cooked fresh and there was plenty of it!!! which was good because we needed it to soak up the alcohol. I would thoroughly recommend... More

The service was speedy and efficient. Sweet potato fries to die for..... recommended by a regular and well worth trying. The relaxed ambience of the restaurant made our lunch a very pleasant and satisfying experience. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. Cant wait to go back for more.... Merry Christmas to all the staff and diners.
