Another regular haunt whenever I'm in town. The meals are massive and prices reasonable. Quite a range of menu and frequented by families, old and young alike. Decor and ambience nothing to speak of but it's not intended to be that type of place.

If is wasn't for a low quality this food could be nice. Plates are huge, which is good but quality so so. Service should improve too to order two plates (different menus) and drinks, customer have to go in 3 different places. Atmosphere is a bit appaling with all that animal trophies.

This place is very big, with themed inside dining areas & spacious outside eating areas. Basically it's old, worn & somewhat shabby, badly in need of a good coat of paint & freshening up. But it's very popular, has a decent menu & serves fresh, well cooked, good pub food very well priced. Also has the best condiments range I've... More

We had eaten there before, good portions, if mediocre quality, this visit made me aware of 2 serious shortcomings. There are 2 ordering counters and 2 menus, one is a steak type counter/menu and the second a general/bulk cooked (cheaper) alternative. Having decided on our meals I went to order but the first (steak) counter explained they had to be... More

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... More

We went here one night for dinner. There were 8 of us. My wife and I were the first ones to order. Everyone go their food except for me. My food did not come until the rest of our party had finished eating (45 minutes later) even when I had been the first to order. The food was good but... More

9 of us on a bucks weekend were a walk in off the street for dinner, our waitress did everything she could to seat us quickly in a very busy restaurant. Our waitress was extremely personable, helpful and cheery. The meals were exceptional to say the least! They were HUGE and very reasonably priced. To have 9 starving blokes on... More
