    Chad Baygon reckons:

    Wasn't looking forward to this parma after arriving at this pub and my reservations were soon justified. The parma came out about 5 minutes after ordering which sent the alarm bells off immediately. I was greeted with a bird that had obviously been run over by a steam roller prior to being sent here for cooking. That unappealing fake taste accompanied this pancake/parma, along with undercooked chips and a lacklustre salad with brown lettuce and a mediocre dressing. Not the worst I've had but still a failure compared to the recent quality I've been accustomed to.

    Worst parma. Chips were not cooked, they were raw and disgusting. Chicken was very thin and had twice as much batter and coating to chicken. Will NEVER EVER go back here and I encourage others to do the same. Had intended to go to the Coopers Inn, but arrived 3 minutes after the kitchen closed

    Bonus point for putting the salad in bowl so that the dressing doesn't contaminate the chips.
