Great Atmosphere & Friendly Staff

What they say about us:

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.

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.

We're so glad that our taxi driver recommended this place. After a full day on the reef, we were VERY hungry.

We had Kangaroo, Crocodile, Shepherd's pie, schnitzle, and beer.
The servings were HUGE!

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.
