Make sure you are hungry

The Cock and Bull does pub food very, very well. They obviously have a lot of growing lads going there as the serves are humongous (even the kids meals!) The food is really tasty and it is worth having a look around the place there are some interesting pictures in the Cairns Game Fishing Club! If... read more

I love the relaxed atmosphere and choice between the traditional Australian BBQ type menu and the traditional English Pub type menu. something to please everyone and the sizes will stump most people.

This was a good value pub and lots of interesting pictures on the walls. The servings were enormous, you could probably have one main meal between 2 adults.

I was given the heads up about how big the meals were at the Cock n Bull and the reputation was well deserved. I ordered the mixed grill........... heaps to eat however everything was well done (overcooked). Very family friendly and a good vibe. Will go back and give it another shot.

We ate in quite a few pubs during our stay in Australia. This one had really good food in a dark pub-like atmosphere. I had the Sliced meat special,that night it was lamb and my wife had the veal schnitzel. The portions are absolutely enormous. The meats were really good. I'm always a little wary of lamb. This lamb was... More

The meals are massive and really well priced . This is real old fashioned pub food . And try the death by chocolate if you dare . This would... More

Had a meal at cock and bull on origin 1 night. Glad we saw the size of the meals before we ordered. Great tucker. Had the lamb shanks (2 shanks) which fed both of us after a seafood chowder starter. Both good hearty courses. Really enjoyed the meal

Go to this place very often, always friendly service. Food is amazing and very good lunch pricing. I go there on my own every now and then, and with family more often. 5/5 without a doubt.
