Me and 2 friends of mine tried the roast of the day a few days ago. The meat was ok but cold, my mashed potatoes were definitely warmed up and the sweet potato not even close to cocked. One of the worse experience if it comes to food in Australia so far.. Really don't recommend to go

Great food with large servings, if you get through them you are going well. Would be going there again when back in town.

Last night in Cairns and we picked this pub to enjoy some good fare and we weren't disappointed. I had the mixed plate with the kangaroo and croc. Food was flavorful and plentiful. It's off the main drag of tourist places to eat, but well worth going out of the way.

We highly recommend this PUB. For the faint hearted just ask for 1 serving with an extra plate .You can always go back for another !

Food is alright pub food, but under 18's are not allowed to be there without a parent or guardian! My girlfriend and myself (both 17) were not even allowed to have water with our meals!!!! And then to top it off we were asked to leave straight away! Rude! Bad service! Alright food! No water! What a disgrace! Definitely do... More

Loved the atmosphere at the Cock & Bull, with lots of wild game and examples of sports fishing on display. The steaks were huge - I'll choose a pub like this any day over a restaurant which serves arty food but hardly anything on the plate.

Spent six nights in Cairns and ate here for four of them. I think that tells you all you need to know. The servings of food are absolutely huge, probably too large even for a typical American to finish. I sampled the Big Game Combo which was a massive kangaroo steak and a massive crocodile steak with all the trimmings.... More

For one to describe such a place is like shooting a camel, you just don`t do such a thing. You must experience it for yourself in order to appreciate the majestic awe of the food.

As the other reviewers have stated, the portion sizes here are gargantuan! The quality is also reasonable too so for value for money you simply can't beat this place. If you're feeling adventurous (or suicidal) get the 'death by chocolate' for dessert, I dare you. I'd never seen a dessert so big in my life. I would return again for... More
