Great little Country Tavern with very friendly staff and bloody delicious (and well priced) meals. Also very easy to find, only a stones throw from the highway. Looking forward to coming back, was well worth the drive from the Northern Beaches. If you're going past I definitely recommend stopping in for a drink and a feed.

Spacious and Spotless motel rooms with beautiful bush scenery. The Tavern boasts a "Bill of Fare" comparable to a top class city tavern and justifiably backs it with meals that are delightful and full of flavour.

Friendly and helpful staff, a relaxed environment, great quality food, and a beautiful setting. All for a reasonable price. Highly recommend for a meal with family and friends, or a few drinks. Amazing looking pool as well. It's well worth pulling off the main road and calling in.

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

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

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
