    Had the parmie from the Bar Menu (rather than in the restaurant ... so was $2 cheaper). Have to say it was one of the best I've had in a long time. Not the largest serving but quality was fantastic, the chicken was moist, the ham and sauce had a really nice flavour and I'm pretty sure it was pan cooked rather than deep fried. This pub is the real deal as well, a great atmosphere and non of that gastro-wankery that is spreading like cancer. Bonus point is for the great salad, very fresh & nicely dressed (although maybe chopped up a little small) and served in a bowel rather plonked on with the chips making them soggy. Keep up the top work guys .... I'll be back for sure!!

    This place has a new chef and the parma is fantastic. Has good quality ham and nice amount of cheese and sauce on top. Breast size is quite large and is nice and think but still juicy. Comes with chips underneath which is a little annoying but then again they use the entire plate so not much more room. Becoming a huge favourite in the inner west !!!

    This was a real find a great little pub down a side street again a community Hotel raffles trips away etc The Parma was bloody huge not dry with a good topping and ham and yes it was on the chips the chips were how ever not soggy they were crisp and fluffy inside the salad very fresh with very nice dressing the beer was cold and extremely nice I gave this pub an extra point due to the ambiance of the place and the staff just a great place to have a Parma I did take a point off the chips because of the Parma being on top. I fully recommend this Pub

    Bonus points due to the feel of the place and the staff were very friendly. The parma was moist the salad fresh along with the chips not being crappy thin chips and not under the parma. This pub is off the beaten track has the feel of pubs of old where they have golf games meat raffles and tipping comps, along with a TAB and nice beer. On Wednesdays they have the typical special parma and a pot for $12.00 . The brothers and I have been looking around now for a while at the parma n pot meal deals and this one is up there I will be coming back to this pub.

    ChipsOnTheSide reckons:

    This was the second time that I have been to here for a parma. The first one was good but this time it was even better. The major improvement was in the salad department. They went from a couple of scraps of lettuce on the side of the plate to a generous, well dressed pile of freshness. My one critical comment would be that there could have been more ham in the topping. Bonus point for not putting the chicken on top of the chips.

    A generous sized parma with a tasty salad and good fat chips in support. Topping all the way to the edge. No complaints.

    bear reckons:

    Great sized parma that is tasty with good chips and salad. Quite a good experience this place, a neat and tidy fair dinkum little pub that is very popular with the locals and a certain locally based AFL club and the chefs serve you themselves here!. My only criticism of this parma is that the cheese is a little "rubbery" so i suggest the chefs use a better quality cheese, and that and the chicken itself was a little too moist and waterey. Good chips and salad in generous portions. Overall though this is a very good parma but you do pay a bit less than 20 bucks for it, and though its good its a bit pricey for the area.
