Came here with friends as we heard good reviews but unfortunately it did not live up to expectations.
Food is bland, flavourless and ridiculously priced for the portion size and quality.
Service was also terrible and it was hard to get the attention of the waiting on staff. Will not be returning and would advice others to go elsewhere.

Terrible food and standards. Waste of an evening and money. Far to expensive for what it is. Better off anywhere else.

We booked via Groupon as a family of four. (Confused about previous comment as deal fine print on my Groupon advised to book by telephone and I could have lunch times or dinner times; http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/wolverhampton/the-parks-restaurant/38455797 and it's still there to see today!)
The surroundings are beautiful, to sit with cocktails outside on a summers evening was like being in a completely different part of the world.
Our food was presented beautifully, and all four of us were so full we had to enjoy the surroundings with more drinks in the Babylon garden enforce our 20 mins drive home.

Held a birthday party for 60 guests. Food was brilliant, staff were fantastic and very accommodating, venue worked perfectly. We also hired a disco for the restaurant area which worked really well. Would definitely recommend The Parks especially for a party or function, the grounds are lovely too, on a summer evening you can open the doors and sit outside. Thank you to The Parks and all the staff for making my party a night to remember...we'll be back soon.

We had a groupon voucher which stated that we could dine between 6 - 7.30 on certain nights, there was no mention of having to pre book so we took our chances one Wednesday evening at 6pm. We arrived and the restaurant was empty, the waiter asked if we'd booked and we said we hadn't he said it wasn't a problem as they had tables free. we sat down and ordered and then along came a jobs worth, I assume it was the assistant manager or the manager, who promptly told us that you had to book but he would allow us to dine this time, which I felt was OTT, and made me feel really uncomfortable, why did he feel the need to announce this when the waiter had already said we could dine?? We ate and then left. The food was nice but a tad on the pricey side, I had ice cream for dessert which was £4.95 I expected a little more than 3 small scoops of ice cream for that price! Cocktails were nice, Beautiful inside and lovely surroundings just put off by the over zealous worker, maybe a course in customer relations would benefit
