    Had during a lunch hour at this busy venue where 7 of us went out and all ordered the chicken parma. Thick tasty good quality chicken and a very good size also. Crispy crumbing, nice piece of ham and plenty of mozzarella. The only drawback was that the napoletana sauce was a bit boring and there were no herbs used. Plenty of chips nicely salted and there was a bit of side salad with balsamic and olive oil. Service was good. We all were seriously full after this big parma, i did a quick survey of mates afterwards and it was rated 7.5 to 8.5 by all.

    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.

    slightly staggered at this accidental find during a lunch hour, how could an $8 parma be any good? It comes with a pot of draught so there's a head start. Its a no nonsense parma and chips, with no salad or veg. The structure is spot on, crispy crumbing, nice thinly sliced ham, some tasty napoletana style sauce, good lashing of grilled mozzarella, a good clean butterflied chicken breast and a good serve of salty crisp chips. Really tastes nice and like a good pub parma, and its terrific value so the bonus point. Clean little venue, and the beer by itself is great value also. Recommend.
