“What happened ???”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

We have been here the last two years and loved it and returned multiple times to enjoy our meals. This time around I can't say the same thing, the meals were terrible, the menu has changed and not really that great. No oysters Kirkpatrick which my partner used to say were the best he had ever had anywhere!!! We asked if they could do some for us and were told no. We tried other items which were very disappointing. We were very disappointed after so looking forward to going here for our first meal on holidays.

“A Great Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Amazing to read some reviews. Obviously written by people who've been 'caught out'. This is a great little pub with a HUGE history - and it's a drawcard for locals who are more than happy to spend the time of day having a chat with you - even if your name is Norma L or Debbie 2509. I've been to Kuranda a few times, have met the 'blonde with dreadlocks" and have to admit that I admire her mightily! She calls a spade a spade - as do most people in this little town - and that's why I keep going back. If you try to rip people off, then they'll get back at you. I love visiting this little pub and it should be on the 'to do' list for everyone who visits North Queensland.

“Don't eat here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Cold/ half frozen chips. Prime steak sandwich turned out to be a prime cold gristle. Pay top dollar for some of the worst food I have ever eaten.

“Stay away ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Stay away from this place. Staff rude meals had to take back. How do you wait extended length of time for your meals and a steak sandwich arrive stone cold. Some meals were returned and we were told they couldn't tell the chef the meals were crap as he would get the sx&@ts. Seriously a terrible place to have meal.
