    Well we thought we head along on a wednesday night to have a parma.Shock horror it was $12 steak night...(which was excellent FYI). I thought this may actually affect the quality of my parma, but was amazed to find it met all my expectations. The chicken was juicy and cooked to perfection. The topping was plentiful and the cheese....awesome. My associate (refered to previously as the whinger in my other reviews) has learn't much and made one profound statement which i agreed wit which was that the only thing it needed was a balsamic vinegar on the salad (of which there was heaps) and the plate would be complete. He once again footnoted that chips were served under the parma. Looking around the pub it was plain to see the popularity of the parma. On a $12 steak night to see at least 1 in 5 people of the packed venue were eating the parma. i've thought long and hard about the rating on this one and for me the lack of the dressing on the salad was really the only let dow...but one i'm not willing to forgive. 9.60 out of 10. I'm sure you won't be dissapointed by this shining example of a parma!

    A trip down the good old spready on a sunday for the parma special and trivia has once again not dissapointed. An excellent choice of parma's (5 on the $12 sunday special) were on offer. As per the strict judging cuidlines i've gone with the traditional parma. Service was quick and friendly, the parma hot and well presented. The chicken was cooked perfectly and was a good quality whole breast. The parma was served on tp of a bountiful supply of fresh and tasty chips. The salad was HUGE!. This is possibly the biggest salad i've ever seen served with a parma. Plenty of rocket, capsicum, tomato and red onion were drizzled in a light salad dressing. Now the minor niggling downsides... for my personal taste there was too much cheese on the parma, the napoli sauce was plentiful but sadly over the top. The combination of too much sauce and cheese managed to make the upper crust of the parma soggy by the end...only a small thing but enoguht to be noted. Overall a good experience with the spread eagle hotel, great service and atmosphere and judging by the number of people eating there the food has a great reputation.
