The food here is excellent and very reasonable. The portions are enormous, so make sure you are hungry. Pizzas, steaks, Sunday roasts and fish to name a few. They are served quickly with friendly service. You can also visit for just a drink. They have a meat draw on Friday evenings which is fun and a pool table is available.... More

I was not disappointed. Accommodation was clean, and had everything needed for comfort - clean lined provided, clean bathroom and nice balcony out the back which was a... More

We stayed 5 nights over the Christmas period. Mum and Dad were in another unit. Comfortable and clean. Rooms were not serviced while we were there. Coffee and tea and toast making facilities. No microwave. Pub is excellent for a meal. Convenience store next to pub has got the basics you need. Swimming Pool looked good, bit we didn't go... More

Great looking Tavern with good atmosphere, people laughing, dancing, playing pool. They have a Swimming Pool, Pool Table, Outside area, TV area, Music is very loud. Been there twice for dinner and would not go back. Ordered three medium well steaks which came out medium rare, probably more on the straight rare side. Blood pooling on the plate. Send one... More

The tavern is very close to where we live, so you might think we'd be biased, but it is a great place to get pizza and does a high quality restaurant service in the evenings which is just as good as if not better than a lot of 'fine dining' restaurants in Cairns - the chef and staff are friendly...

If you are worried about mobile phone reception, you shouldn't stay at Speewah Tavern. If brilliant starlight dazzles you, protect your eyesight and stay clear of this place. If the haunting call of the curlew sets your teeth on edge, you won't get a good night's sleep here. If a kookaburra alarm clock makes you wake with a frown, you... More

We stayed here for one night after a function and were pleasantly surprised having never even driven into Speewah before. The grounds of the hotel are lovely and are home to some very tame curlews. There's a great sized swimming pool along with a petrol station/convenience store which is pretty well stocked. The pub has lots of country charm and... More

We stayed here and had dinner and it was a great recommendation by the Kuranda Visitor Info Centre. The rooms were basic but clean and well presented, the drinks at the pub were cheap and the meals were way beyond what we expected. I had an enormous plate of ribs and they were delicious. It was a quiet night and... More

Three of us called in to the Speewah Tavern today after completing the Glacier Rock walk from Speewah camping ground. It was great! The place is spotlessly clean and the food a real surprise. Two of us had delicious beef burgers made with the chef's own meat patties (that's right - not the bought in frozen variety!) and our friend... More
