What they say about us:

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.

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.

Third night here in a row! Convenient location, large variety of hearty, filling, good value, delicious meals!
The decor and atmosphere is brilliant and the staff are friendly.
Great location for families with a big appetite!
"Death by Chocolate" thoroughly recommended along with Lamb Shanks and Rack of Ribs.

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.

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.

The meals here are HUGE. A wide choice of meals and a great environment.
I was on holiday with my family of 6 staying at the Holiday Inn just a block away which I highly recommend also. We had recommendations for Cock & Bull by a few different people for dinner and we could see why. Beautifully decorated too. Loved it.

What a FANTASTIC place to eat and drink.
Went here with my family (6 persons) to have a simple diner after a long drive, without knowing the concept of this restaurant. What a great diner it was. So much nice food for a small amount of money.
The crew was so nice and friendly.
Pay directly after your order so you can walk out whenever you want is something we really liked.
Thank you all!!!

I dined here with local friends for the first time last week. The menu options were great - I went for the chicken Kiev with vegetables and salad and it was delicious. All meals that came out were of a very generous serving at very reasonable prices.
The beer is cold, I opted for the Shark Pale Ale - nice and refreshing.
Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere made for a great night out with friends.
