What they say about us:

After reading many reviews we decided to go to this establishment and see for ourselves. The meals are HUGE. My sister had an entree sized meal and it was more than enough. I had a steak. It was cooked well. The potato mash was amazing! Prices reasonable and on a par with pubs all over the country. There are two places you can go to order your meals, go to the Hearty food counter, not the steak bar and grill if you are looking for something else to eat. This is not a waiter comes to your table to take your order. It is a pub, not a restaurant. You go to the bar to order and pay for your food and to get your drinks. The staff are great. Shout out to Heidi!
We loved it!

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.

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.

Came back to the hotel after scuba diving, napped and woke up starving! Knew it was time to visit the Cock & Bull since the front desk said the portions were generous. Truly an understatement! Had a rib eye meal with salad and chips with gravy on he side. Chips and gravy omg! Definitely worth a stop if you’re hungry!!

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.

Slightly outside the CBD this is a very busy pub, friendly staff, quick service and large meals from a good menu. The steak and kidney pie was lovely and I would recommend it

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.
