Food was what you expect

It's a busy pub. Busy cause of the location not because the food is exceptional. It's ok and fast and it's reasonable value. Don't expect cutting edge meals but know that you'll probably leave with a full stomach and money in your wallet.

We enjoyed both the Port Douglas and the Cairns Rattle and Hum's. The food is good, although I think it is a bit pricey for pub food. Recommend the woodfired pizza and ribs. Great place to grab a drink and people watch. Must of been good we ate there 5 times in 2 weeks!

The food is shocking. It is a pub but the motto I guess is that the more fatty carbs they can fit on the plate the happier the punters will be. If you like good food don't eat here...... Having a fun time when the game is on, top spot.

The wood fired pizzas are great. You go in and order at the back but can sit inside or outside. Sports on TV inside. Great place to take older teens.

Food was good, huge meal & reasonably priced. Couple of staff were hard to understand, backpackers I think but great atmosphere

Nice bar, good location. We had nachos and there was enough for 3 people, good price and a good choice of drinks. Value for money

I visit Rattle n Hum for the central location, it's convenient and has a great atmosphere when you're with friends. The food however, is a little pricey, but does usually taste nice. The drinks (cocktails) are standard priced but nothing hugely inventive. Staff do tend to be a bit blase, but as mentioned, the atmosphere is enjoyable and worth a... More

Pizza is not bad but not great! Although chicken wings were delicious and meat was falling of the bone! We went at lunch time so they had self-service and we had to get all our food and drinks from the counter. Not somewhere we would go again!

This pub sells a range of beers, all mixed drinks and a good selection of wines. The food offered ranges from wood fire pizza, fish, beef and chicken dishes. One of the best burgers to be found in Cairns. Outside tables are great for relaxing drink or evening meal to accompany a bit of people watching in a busy part... More
