Very large meals, always great food. Nice atmosphere. Always busy, doesn't matter what night you go there are always people there, plenty of outdoor dining area. Great value for money.

Group of three visited at 8:30 pm and pleasantly surprised to find meals being served until 10:00 pm. Enormous portions and quickly served with absolute no complaints. No dessert but looking at the enormous ice cream portion size, was probably a good choice. Value for the $$$$$.

We arrived with a party of 6, we found parking easy and went inside where we were sat near the toilets. Our orders arrived and we were amazed at the huge portion size. Ideal for pub food with friends

Took a long time to get after we had ordered. Meals are big certainly nicer places to eat where food is better and on par price wise.

Was recommended to visit the Cock and Bull. First time I tried Croc. Meal was huge and good value. Took two nights to find a table so you may need to book.

I have two teenage sons so I thought I would give this a go. A huge selection, including a few tasty vegetarian meals. You wait at the table with a buzzer, like most pub type places. The meals are huge, fresh and very tasty. Pub style food, good value and something on the menu for everyone

We have eaten at the C & B on several occasions when in Cairns and it's great....if you are really hungry. When we were there a couple of months ago I ordered the Shepherds Pie....it was so big that I thought it must have contained an entire shepherd! The meals are great and very large...it's a little noisy, but it... More
