According to WhatPub, Real Ale is not available, and it has live music. Drink prices are astonishing considering its proximity to the attractions.

Before COVID, a pint of Guinness was around £3.50, in excellent surroundings. 

The majority of the 308×4.5 star reviews suggest “a warm and inviting atmosphere”, with great food and excellent customer service (some say “fast and efficient service”).

This service is unsurprising because pubs and eating places that fail to cater to their customers tend not to survive long in high demand areas, like Wembley.

Due to its proximity to Wembley Stadium, the Parish Bar is well-placed for a quick drink before heading off to the match or other local event – your prompt departure all but guaranteed by the five girls working behind the bar providing prompt service in a bustling bar on event days.
