People told us that this was good value however we had a lot better elsewhere. True you get a lot of chips (fries) but for the cost the meat has to be better quality.

Hi Almenj, We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t completely enjoy your experience at Cock n Bull.

Recommended by the reception at our hotel and glad we listened to her suggestion to share a single meal. The portions are massive. You order and pay at the 'food' counter, and when the electronic buzzer rings, collect your own meals along with cutlery etc. Food was good with options like kangaroo & crocodile if desired. And massive portions! The... More

Never thought we would be in a wooden 'shack style' pub with stuffed Buffaloes on the walls eating Shepherds Pie and Cajun Fish, in the middle of Cairns. We spotted this on TripAdvisor as it was only a short distance away from our motel and decided to give it a go. So pleased we did, got a pint of Kilkenny... More

This is a must if you're staying at the Queens Court, it's just around the corner. Great food and some entertainment which stops at 9.30. Australians seem to be bed early type people. If you're a steak eater you're in for a treat, I had the T Bone and it's the best so far

You will not go home hungry, the food is excellent and although there really is too much you don't want to leave any as it is soooo tasty.
