What they say about us:

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.

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.

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.

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.

I loved this pub!! I love the decorations. It’s a very busy place with great service & great food. The food & drink was reasonably priced with big portion sizes.

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!!

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.

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.
