    Since my last visit for a parma at the Flying Cock, things have changed. The parma itself was A+++, perfectly moist, thick and topped with delicious Bangalow ham. However the fries (not chips) served underneath the parma (THE GREATEST CRIME EVER) were soggy, but the aioli that came with it was delicious. Finally the salad... two types side by side: a bitter and under-sauced coleslaw and a bitter green salad. Both of which were horrible. tl;dr - stay for the parma, leave before the sides.

    For the longest time. Been waiting to try this one out for a while, as I had been hearing and seeing good things online and from friends. However the experience was not as good as the hype. Wednesday is two for one Parmi for $19, so we decided to give it a go for lunch. And with only 10 people in the place, we thought this would be a relatively quick process. However we had to wait over half an hour to get our meals… which was a bit disappointing. But we are not here to review the service. We are here for the Parmi. Parmi was of very good size, but was plonked on top of the chips, and unfortunately they were un-savable due to lack of plate space. Salad is in the form of a quite nice slaw, but the dressing had cross contaminated the chips and parmi due to the plate being so dam small. The meat quality was quite average, not as moist as it could be, and almost the consistency of heavily processed chicken meat, with a suitably salty flavour to match. Crumbing had an smell that reminded me of dagwood dogs/Pluto pops (not a bad thing), but the flavour was pretty lacking of any herb etc. Atop the parmi was a good amount of cheese, with a decent amount of sliced ham. But the sauce… firstly the flavour was a bit meh, it looked and tasted a lot like tomato paste. Secondly we need to have a chat about the sauce people. Is it located under the ham? Or on top of the ham? This one was on top, and it wasn’t bad, but I prefer mine to be under it. Chips were cold on arrival, which mixed with the wait for lunch tells me there might have been a problem in the kitchen the day we turned up to try out the prami. However I could see these chips being quite good, if they were hot, and the parmi also comes with a nice aioli sauce in a dish to dip into. There was a good amount of chips with the parmi. All in all, the parmi was pretty standard in our books not really deserving of all the hype we had heard about it. But for buy one get one free on a Wednesday it makes for a good meal. SPB

    An attempt to modernise parma which fell a little short. The meat was a bit to dry but the real surprise was in the topping. It was a diced tomato-style fresh salsa with grated parmesan on top. Unexpected, but a bit too sparing in the sauce/cheese to schnitzel ratio. It's a new pub, so if they refine it a bit more it will be promising. Especially with the tremendously large serving of shoestring fries and the rather interesting pear-slaw served as a salad.
