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

So after seeing the ad on TV I thought I'd give "the famous" cock and bull a go. From the get go I was met with an unfriendly staff member at the bar, very unhelpful. Me and my friend order two meals, both of us were very disappointed. I like pub grub so I wasn't expecting a fine dinning experience,... More

Just an average place to dine. Nothing special , service was average. Food was average. Not much different to all the others around Cairns.

Excellent value for money, huge meals of good quality at low cost and family friendly. No need to book and meals ready promptly. Plenty of free parking.

We had dinner at the Cock and Bull and as newbie's weren't sure what to expect. It was a little confusing having three menu's and two different places to order. The food exceeded all expectations with an abundance of food left over as all meals seem to be served super sized. Well worth the experience and definitely value for money

On the face of it, the Cock& Bull Pub and Restaurant looks a little intimidating, but once you brush past the open-air and ceiling-fanned verandah looking out over a huge expanse of park opposite, and ignore the modern music pumping out incessantly, you can concentrate on the menu. You have the choice of the bar food or - vastly better... More

Cock & Bull is one of my favourite places to eat out in Cairns. Purely because of the fantastic value. The meals are very reasonably priced, but it's the size that blows you away. If there was one issue it would be that the plates aren't big enough. My favourite item on the menu would have to be the sticky... More

Cock & Bull and Carnivore share the same facility along with a bar, and mini game room. There is ample seating inside and out. You are allowed to sit where you please, and order from all the establishments at their individual counters. A buzzer is provided, and you pick up your food once it is ready. We sampled food from...

Went here with my husband and two others. The steak meals turned up quickly and were cooked perfectly. My chicken Kiev was overlooked as well as the chips. If you order from both menus you pay at different counters and your meals can then turn up at different times. Been here once, don't have to return.

If it's quantity & not quality that matters to you then you will probably like this place. I had dinner here with my husband & two children & they got two of our meals wrong. The prices are reasonable, the portions are large but the quality is average & the service a bit ordinary. I won't be returning in a... More
