What they say about us:

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.

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 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.

The portions for food items are quite large. We ordered two meals and there was enough food for the three of us. The food tasted great and was priced quite good for those on a budget. The restaurant was quite busy but we didn't wait long for our food to be ready.

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.

My 4 friends and I had dinner here tonight. We all enjoyed our meals. I had the crocodile schnitzel which was yummy. I also tried my friends meal of ribs which was so yummy I'm planning on having it next time I visit. The servings are huge and it's extremely good value for money. The service was quick and the staff were friendly.

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.

The Cock & Bull which has pokies and a pool table sports area was recommended to us by another holiday couple. We had the biggest meals we have seen in a long time, which were cooked and presented well with the biggest range of condiments we have ever seen. Two different menus, one pub fare and the other a la carte. We will definitely return on our next visit.
