    Bird Bandit reckons:

    Although my parma was slightly overcooked i blame this solely on simple chef error & not the lack of quality ingredients or thought process that went into nailing their recipe initially. The chips were possibly the best I've ever eaten (with or without a parma) which even came with aioli dip & the simple yet effective salad really pulled the dish together. This is a venue that really has a passion for beers & you only have to look around the room & endless bar taps to realise you could do some serious time there before being booted for sucking the place bone dry!

    After a manly road trip to buy a vintage woolen afl jumper signed by one of the greats (sure does have a collar), me & a poultry pal ripped into the Berwick Inn for a late lunch/early dinner to be told we were pushing our luck to get a table & the kitchen was still 20mins off opening. Realising this was a bird barn in high demand, we sweet talked our way in & were up & ordering as the buzzer sounded 6pm. With only a short wait which was occupied by ice cold carltons & the swamping of manly stories, the parmas arrived & i new we had struck a winner. On presentation, the bird was big & moist (sounds suss), with generous topping, chips a plenty & even the salad looked like it belonged on the plate. A tender & tasty, well tuned parma that is worth the travel & it's no surprise the locals love it!

    Was a toughy getting a table, especially on weekends in a venue that is actually a maze. Had the pleasure of getting one right near the work room (kitchen) & it was actually a joke how many parmas they were pumping out. Thoroughly enjoyed this bird & would def recommend going there if you like chicken with benefits!
