Went for dinner after a tiring day. Ordered food, bought drinks, then waited, waited and waited. Bought more drinks and waited and waited. Eventually someone came to ask if we were still waiting!! No apology but food eventually arrived after an hour. The 'pino noir jus' had possibly been shown the label but that's all! Obviously nobody came to ask... More

We stopped there for dinner mostly because it was across the street from the apartment we were renting while in Cairns... and we loved it so much we went again the very next day! Both times, the staff was very friendly, food was excellent and prices reasonable. They have a large patio if you want to eat outdoors and enjoy... More

We found it to be a typical tavern that could accommodate many people and appeared to be geared towards families. Our food was reasonable although by steak requested to be cooked medium rare was blue, albeit a good quality piece of meat.

Had dinner here and the food was great Seems to be a local business people hang out as rotary where there when we where there. Ordered the avocado schnitzel and the parmigiana was typical pub food with a bit of class. Plenty of variety of wine and beers all at taproom prices. would highly recommend

Very good meal, well priced. We were impressed with the Monday night special where the second main you bought only cost $10. It was a great feed but I still wasn't completely full after an entree and main

We had dinner here 2 nights in a row. There was a glitch the first night with our order but Ben the duty manager immediately took ownership of the problem and fixed it and gave us free garlic bread and offered a round of drinks to compensate. The second night we had our meal within 6 minutes of ordering!!!! Cant... More

Had dinner here last night and the range of meals was really good. Not too crowded and looks like the locals place to eat away from those 'tourists'. Our meals were delicious and service was great. Even tried the local Great Northern Beer which went down quiet well. Child friendly with an entertainment room.
