    Lovely parma, fantastic size, very good salad which comes out seperatly. The chicken to crumb ratio was very good with suffcient chicken. The chips was nice and thick and very fresh. I gave a bonus point for the free bread rolls. However they are at the expensive end of parmas and by the time you add a pint its close to $30.

    Loved this one, good venue, very suitable to enjoy a parma and a few pints. The parma itself was put together well, a beautifully butterflyed peice of breast crumbed and cooked to perfecion. However the parma itself was a tad light with the sauce which was dissapointing. However the cheese on top was cooked and browned by a professional. The chips were fresh and crunchy and not plated underneath the parma. However another handful of chips would have gone down well. Finally the salad, I applaud places that dont mind have an extra dirty dish such as the Brighton, the salad was presented in its own bowl on the side, well done. Last but not least a bonus point for the free bread which always goes down well. It was a lovely afternoon had by all in attendance.

    it was a beautiful well put together parma. The ratio of crumb to breast was spot on, the chips were fresh and crunchy, the cheese was browned nicely. The salad is one of the better ones going around. I would pay more than what they are charging. Where they let themselves down was putting the parma on top of the chips.
