Dinner was fresh, hot and yummy! Too much for one, I would plan on sharing a plate. There is an outdoor cocktail area as well as two dining areas,

I used to be a regular here but since moving had not been for over 10 years. Lunch yesterday was crap, to the point that I sent my meal back. Steak was a piece of unedible, gristle ridden mutton. My wifes chicken kiev was deep fried to the point it was very dry and not very tasty. She persevered but... More

Great atmosphere, large meals, good price beers and very cold. You have the choice to order from 2 different kitchens and a wide variety of meals, very quick service and plenty of seating inside and out.

With all the hype, I made the bad choice to have " food " at this over rated joke. I'm very experienced in pub food....but this was a new low. First up was bland, tasteless entrees which I couldn't finish and chose to abandon in favour of the main. Second mistake, being that it was on par with the pathetic... More

Great place with plenty of atmosphere and a great alfresco area. The food is good but a bit pricy. The drink are pricy also, but well worth a visit.

Best place to go for a down to earth meal. Serves are huge, so sharing is recommended. Went there with four others, honestly we could have had ordered just two meals and shared. Sausages were huge, my spag blog was immense, only could eat half of it, but all meals were very tasty. Was going to have a "Death By... More

This place has the best pub feeds ever! We got chicken snitty and a 500gm rump steak, both were absolutely huge! Also really yummy, they had plenty of gravy/diane with them and both sauces were really good aswell! This is the place to go if you have a big appetite! Will definitely be back.

Any visitor to Cairns should eat here but beware: the portions are IMMENSE. I'd advise you order 1 meal you both like and share it -- there's always more in the kitchen in the unlikely event you'll need it.

Located in North Cairns, not far from the hospital in case you need a landmark. It’s a large and popular pub & restaurant serving a decent variety of predominantly meat based dinners. Plenty to choose from if you’re hankering for a roast dinner, burger, steak etc. Prices are fair, portions are very generous, although it’s slightly awkward in that there... More
