Description: The Courty as it has become affectionately known, is the oldest pub in Port Douglas and one of the most iconic pubs in Australia. We are located on the corner of Macrossan St (Port’s main street) and Wharf St (overlooking Anzac Park and the harbour). Behind the magnificent heritage Queenslander façade and wide open verandas is a much-loved full-offering local pub. This relaxed and welcoming neighbourhood pub is perfect for lunch, dinner, drinks or a night out on the town. Tailor your own experience at the Courty; whether it is casual large lunches with the whole family, afternoon cocktails in the sun with friends, a much-deserved cold beer, quiet corners for a quick bite to eat or late night celebrations on the open air verandas.

“My favourite pub”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I love the Courtie! the food will not change your life but its a great, iconic spot to stop for a drink and watch the world go by! I always enjoy the calamari, very tasty and the daily specials are great value, such as the T Bone. A must visit on your trip to Port Douglas.

“Location spoils its need to try”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

It's ok. The barramundi was over cooked but the meal was ok. Limited selection of beer on tap. Service officious, not friendly or rude. It's ok.

“Lunch & Drink @ the Court House Hotel”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Drinks were reasonable priced however, our order for lunch took 35 mins (though we were advised of this), the hotel wasn't at capacity. An interesting concept considering peak season. The food was okay, but the cold imported Cider was best.

“Do not recommend this for eating there!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went out the four of us for a meal, we placed our order, they gave us a receipt of the order, waited for about 1 hour , still no meal, we went to enquire, only to be told the had given us the order back so it hadn't been put on the peg for cooking. They then cooked our meal and brought it to us, 2 of us ordered Barramundi, chips and salad, the fish wasn't barramundi, also cooked too fast and burnt underneath. One ordered chicken, that was burnt at the bottom, and one ordered sirloin steak, it were more like stewing steak, very fatty, would definitely not eat there again shocking!!

“Terrible service, bad food,”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Went here for lunch while port Douglas and was very disappointed. Firstly we ordered our food, not a quick process, and then we waited. And waited. And waited.
We found out about the 45 min wait for food from the person who sat next to us who had just ordered.
Anyway, after over an hour of waiting for a couple of burgers and a salad, the meals arrived, with no apology, no cutlery.
Food was poor at best.
I'm guessing this place doesn't care because of the tourists who come through, they don't care about return customers.
Poor service, poor food, don't eat here.
