    6 different types on a Thursday night. have had 3 of them being Mexican, Hawaiian and pizza. All of them were great could of done with larger serve of chips and a bit more in the salad like onion and carrot for example. But overall great value for money and excellent taste.

    Bonus point for speed and service. The parma must have been on our table within 10 minutes of ordering. This parma came highly recommended and failed to disappoint. Great piece of chicken and good topping. Chips were tasty and salad hit the spot. I would also recommend.

    Gregwa reckons:

    I was extremely impressed with the Chicken Parma at "The Local". The chips were delicious and the real chicken used was extremely tender. I was also impressed with the sauce used. I would have preferred chips on the side, but they were underneath the Chicken Parma which is a big no-no.

    Paul reckons:

    Good parma at "The Local", never been there before. Negative points for chips under the parma. Salad was good. Not much to complain about at all to be honest... Id probably go back, but the exchange across the road is probably better.

    Exceptional bird with quality topping. Real chicken that was succulent and tender. Chips were good, not amazing, although they were served in a separate bowl (extra point)

    The Parmavour reckons:

    Great al rounder. Quality chicken, with flavour filled toppings. Some of the chips were served underneath the Parma, which I soon changed, and none of them were soggy, they all retained there crunch. It's definately worth a try.
