I agree with many of the TA reviews, the portions are pretty generous. After some explanation of how the food counters worked I opted for the grilled Spanish Mackerel. Enormous. Two very large fillets, salad and fries (some I left to focus on the fish). Happy hour between 4-6 also a bonus. There is a pretty extensive menu overall with loads of options. Friendly staff included.

Thank Allder

We decided to try this pub for dinner one night during our trip to Cairns in the basis of previous reviewers experiences. The food was good, I had a Lamb Madras Curry, my other half had fish and my son had Steak. All three meals were good, we had no complaints. The restaurant was busy. There are, apparently, three restaurants on site and you have to queue to order your food (and pay for) at your chosen food counter. You get a bleeper which lights up when the food is ready for collection. Drinks are ordered and paid for separately. We have noticed this system in many Australian bars/restaurants and it seems to work well. All in all, it was a pleasant meal. The overall bill for three main courses , a coke, a beer and a glass of wine was $79.

Massive meals that are always tasty...plenty of variety as well. If you only do one pub meal while in Cairns go here. Try the death by chocolate dessert as well. The judgemental looks from other diners well worth the risk as you manoeuvre it back to your table. Chicken parmas are fantastic and huge as are all of the meals.For lovers of mashed potatoes !

Good average food, very large portions, odd system for getting your food. There is no wait staff you are given a menu and then go to a counter to order the food. You get a buzzer and go get your food and then drinks at the bar but, try to stand at the bar long. There are kitchens with two menus.
