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.

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.
