Pub style restaurant

Reasonable 'pub' style restaurant with a range of foods. Had the trout which again was reasonable without being standout. No table service as you collect your own meals and drinks.

Really busy night as big rugby match was on so had to squeeze in to get drinks. Had a pizza which was ready very fast (even without the crowd it was quick service) and was delicious.

Can only speak of the venue, drinks and service and not of the food. Come here whenever I'm in town. Find it a good spot to watch all sports and enjoy a drink in ambient surrounds. Staff on each occasion I've been have been friendly but may be hit and miss based on the fact they appear to be backpackers... More

This place is always busy. It has a big outdoor seating which is really nice or you can sit inside where it is a bit more noisy, but still ok. After choosing what you like to eat you have to make your way to the counter to order and pay. They give you a Buzzer and you have to pick... More

We usually come here a few times when we stay in Cairns for work every July/ August. But this time the meal was a disappointment. I ordered the Nachos and the cheese came out as hard strips/slabs, not melted and it was also cold. I have to say it was very quick service - but probably because they didn't bother... More

This place was fantastic. Loved the atmosphere. The staff were awesome, really friendly and chatty. There were several areas to hang out based on what kind of experience you were after. We played pool and had wood fired pizzas and it was amazing. Central to everything and can't wait to come back.

My husband and I went to the Rattle N Hum on the 19 August 2015 expecting a good quality fillet of steak and seafood but instead my husband could not cut his fatty tough steak and the fish, crumbed prawns and squid were so overcooked. We were so disappointed and would not recommend this restaurant. I think they need to... More

Had the vegetarian pizza which was yumm. My wife had the bucket of prawns which she really enjoyed. Atmosphere pub like you order at a counter and are given an electronic device which beeps when your meal is ready then you go up and get it so no real service.

Tasteless food! We were in 6 people and every single food was terrible. Even the chips were soggy and saltless. The ribs were over cooked and sauce was completely artificial.
