    To put it simply, this parma was crap. The only reason I went to this pub was because the parma was rated so highly, and I was bitterly disappointed. On further inspection, the most recent review was in 2011, so things must have changed A LOT since then. The quality of the chicken was what you'd expect from the freezer aisle at Coles. It was horrible, complete with a thick layer of cheap breadcrumb-lard. The toppings were average, the chips nothing special and the salad a waste of space. To top it off, I felt horrible for a few hours afterwards.

    Had during a lunch hour at this busy venue where 7 of us went out and all ordered the chicken parma. Thick tasty good quality chicken and a very good size also. Crispy crumbing, nice piece of ham and plenty of mozzarella. The only drawback was that the napoletana sauce was a bit boring and there were no herbs used. Plenty of chips nicely salted and there was a bit of side salad with balsamic and olive oil. Service was good. We all were seriously full after this big parma, i did a quick survey of mates afterwards and it was rated 7.5 to 8.5 by all.

    Scott reckons:

    A really great parma but it was short lived. It was the highlight of the dish but it was overwhelmed by average chips and a tasteless salad. If the parma was a bit bigger and they added some flavour to the chips and salad this would be a winner, until then, just average.
