Eating Out: Commercial Hotel-Motel in Yarram [238 Commercial Road Yarram VIC 3971]

This place is in a little country town called Yarram. We arrived in the town at about 1:45 and walked down the main shopping strip trying to find a place for lunch. However bistro's closed at 2 and closed all the lights once they saw us. This place was about to do the same until the owner(I'm guessing) came up and told the kitchen staff to serve us. They only offered 2 dishes, which was understandable given the circumstances. So fish and chips and chicken parma's it was for lunch.

Lemon Lime and Bitters
Is there enough alcohol in this to give a blood alcohol reading at all? 
 Chicken Parma
One pretty good parma. Nice and thick but not too big. Under it was a layer of thick cut chips and a large salad on the side. Also came with a bread roll and butter, except my butter melted because it was under my hot bread roll. I found the tomato sauce really rich and delicious. The cheese was stringy and not too strong. Ticks all the boxes for a good parma.
Fish and Chips
The fish was actually quite large. Crunchy batter, decent fish. Everything else was the same as the parma except there was tartare sauce. And a very generous amount of it. 

Altogether it was $50 for 2 parmas and 2 fish and chips and 4 drinks.
Even I didn't believe it.
Food: 8.5/10 Very decent and true pub meal.
Service/Environment: 7.5/10 Can't blame them, we did arrive after their opening hours. 
Value: 9/10 Great value for money.

Verdict? Great pub food except it's a 3 hour drive from Melbourne.
