We had the beef burger and the Yorkshire Pudding with roast beef meals. Both meals were of a generous size, and were so filling we had to leave a few chips! The price was good for the amount of food we got for $18.50 (burger) and $17.95 each. The tap beer and cider were $7.50 for a pint and also... More

The place was deserted. Should have taken this as a sign. Ordered the chicken kebabs for starters, which were nice, but mains were vile. Open steak sandwich was like chewing on old car Tyre and had a strange taste almost like it was off. No steak knives so had to saw at it with a bread knife. In the end... More

We have been here quite a few times and never enjoyed a meal but was told it had improved so went last weekend, I am from Yorkshire and can never understand why they call themselves a British pub but then serve on the same plate Yorkshire pudding, beef trimmings, chips, salad and gravy, who has heard of salad and gravy...

A little dark inside but lots of charm. Large fires burning in winter. Interesting and friendly staff. Tuesdays for senior citizens with reduced prices. I love their roast dinners. Not far from nz's largest shopping centre.

Stopped in for lunch and sat outside on bar stools. Not usually keen on sitting on stools, however these ones were padded which made them comfortable. I had a dozen thai style mussels with garlic bread which were absolutely delicious and a cocktail. My daughter-in-law had a chicken burger which was also good. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating... More

Beautiful sunny day, out to lunch with friend. Cock & Bull have spacious outdoor seating, umbrellas for shade, lovely atmosphere. Ordered drinks and lunch. Very nice. Bit slow getting second round of drinks to us but was a public holiday and they were busy. Clean and tidy surroundings and staff well presented. Free onsite parking. Will be going back. Good...

Good atmosphere even if it is modern "Olde", had the steak eggs and chips and a huge Weiss beer, $30 for the meal, not much change out of... More

We have had meals here before while staying in Hamilton. We always find the service great, the meals lovely, it always feels warm with the fire going and feels like a little country pub in the UK. What I did find was it was a cold windy night, and every time smokers went out or came in off the porch... More
