    It had been a while between parmas when my trusted sidekick suggested we check out a pub called the Pumphouse. Strange name - and I'm sure there's a great story behind it - but more importantly, it was a great parma. For 19 dollars and 90 cents I challenge you to find better bang for your buck in and around the Melbourne CBD. There's room for improvement with the chips and the salad could've been just a little bit fresher, but to be honest I'm just nitpicking and I would certainly recommend this parma. Get around it.

    Steve reckons:

    The crumbing was clearly inferior to the best parmas, it was soft, seemed inconsistent as well as very pale (as if it were just little bits of torn up white bread) and seemed to give the chicken a soggy touch. It had an amateur homemade feel to it. It made the parma more difficult to cut as it didn't seem to move with the topping, which was decent but unspectacular. Had ham at least. The chicken breast was thick, but by no means juicy or consistent. It wasn't horrid but it didn't leave me with the best taste in my mouth along with that crumbing. The salad was mediocre. Some of the chips were under the parma, which were decent but needed salt. I'm unsure if this was a special but it was on a special menu for an event in the function room. For $15, it wasn't a bad meal but one of the more average (pub) parmas i've had

    Alex reckons:

    Very decent parma. Nice size, cheese on top was a bit browned and we didn't have to wait long at all! Wonderful service in a really friendly, relaxed pub. Chips were under the parma but they were still crispy.
