Great Atmosphere & Friendly Staff

What they say about us:

A very funky restaurant that is popular with young people. The meals are huge yet cheap - this is a great venue for special occasions or if you want a group dinner before a night on the town.

Ask any local in Cairns for a great, value place to eat and most will say "Cock and Bull". The pub is clean and quite quirky sporting a Marlin fishing theme. Most popular beers are available on tap. The choices on the menus are many and varied. You can choose from the char grill for a really great steak or try some home style cooking. The portions are huge and delicious. Waiting times are surprisingly low considering how busy the place gets. I would recommend this place to groups and families. Contradictory to another reviewer, the toilets are to the left of the building past the pool table, nowhere near the pokies! Live bands most nights. A really great night out.

A great value meal!

We went to the Cock and Bull for dinner once during our stay after a recommendation from one of our tour bus drivers. Meals were generous sizes and we were all happy with what we got.

We went here with a large group of people and were amazed that we were served so quickly as the place was packed. The size of the menu was huge with so much to choose from and the prices were great. When the meals were ready, we were gobsmacked at the size of the meals. Never had such huge meals and so tasty. They were so well presented as well. Even the men had trouble finishing the meals because of the size. Great value for money and would go here again.

Love love love this place and their pub ambience. not to mention the friendly people...one of the memorable restaurants I've eaten while in Australia and maybe that's because I ordered their kangaroo steak :) taste similar to beef...not too chewy, not too dry.
i can't wait to go back!

Quite a place! We had the Kangaroo Fillet and the Crocodile Schnitzel. Both were excellent. The big surprise for me was the crocodile. I've had alligator in Florida and crocodile in Zimbabwe and Kenya and quite truthfully none of it was very tasty. But this Crocodile Schnitzel was absolutely delicious. No kidding.

Last night in Cairns went to Cock & Bull for a meal. The meals were absolutely huge. We had a variety, steak & kidney with mash and veg (really delicious) steaks and kangaroo and crocodile all really big and very good. Two children's meals were also ordered and they to were excellent.

Great value for a pub in Cairns. The menu is wide and portions are filling. We ended up going here twice during our weeklong stay. There's also a nice area for seating outdoors.
