Dined at the Cock & Bull with a group of friends whilst working in Cairns. The meals were excellent, freshly prepared and very large servings. Staff were friendly and service was great. Enjoyed it so much we ate there twice in 3 days. Will definitely visit this restaurant again when back in Cairns again.

Hotel manager recommended this restaurant, it was great, never seen meals soo large at great prices. Only bad thing is you cannot fit dessert in afterwards as you are soo full.

I had two meals here. The first was fish of the day - likely caught a few days earlier, not enjoyable. The second was a traditional pub meal which was much better. The steaks looked good

The pints were decent and reasonably priced. But the meals were incredible So much for your money, had to have a nap once we had finished. We returned the following night.

YOLO!!! You MUST try this. The meals are made to appeal to the budget conscious being a big feed at a reasonable price, not flash. Just good ol pub grub, you won't leave hungry. If there's two of you you may finish 'Death By Chocolate' that thing is HUGE and lots of fun!

I have eaten here nearly every visit to Cairns and while it's definitely not cordon bleu, the meals are homestyle and hearty. The serving sizes are big to the point where I think the could reduce the amount and still have good size meals.
