    Parmaman reckons:

    Fantastic parma. If it were around $15 I would say it was one of the best in town. Although a little pricey its very much a get what you pay for situation. Quality chicken, no expense spared on the sauce, nice amount of chips and a fantastic salad that many parmas often lack. Good service and quality make those extra $5 or so go to an area that many parmas and venues often lack.

    Dexter reckons:

    The toppings were caked on to a degree, and it seemed like one of those packaged crumbed chicken fillets, not a fresh piece of meat. The parma was warm, not hot.

    Glenn reckons:

    When making a booking we were asked if we wanted to pre-order out parmas, to which we said yes. When we arrived a little late our parmas were ready, but they came warm not hot. We'll remember to be on time next time, or not pre-order! (Maybe the pub staff could highlight this potential issue when offering pre-orders ...)

    KT reckons:

    The bonus point is because you get a bottle of sauce to your table instead of just a sachet or tiny saucer-full. Very much enjoyed the parma though the general meal could have been a little bigger (although my lunch companion disagreed). Nice venue
