We placed our order (which we had to adapt because at 1pm on a Thursday they were sold out of Fish & Chips and Bangers &... More

Been to this place 3 times in 2yrs. food ok and nice looking pub, however the ambience is cold. Went in Saturday lunchtime & the bar staff looked like they did not want to be there and poor customer service (only about 5-10 people in bar and barmaid taking her time to serve me) Atmosphere was so cold and unfriendly...

I drink Guinness. A lot. This by far is the best pour of the beer I have had in ages. It's a Tuesday night and lively with a gal playing the guitar. This is my type of bar - friendly, straight forward and no fluff. Note, this is cash only. 50 should be enough to have a good time, provided... More

Cock n Bull has the worst staff in all bars around Bondi. They are rude, arrogant and don't expect any good service. Throw things on clients and laugh at your face. The security asked a friend of mine to leave Laughing - by the way this person didn't have a single beer. If you want a place to enjoy yourself,... More

Always packed to the rafters with Irish workers and backpackers. Pub has an outdoors veranda, which doubles up as the smoking section. If you don’t mind the smoke, the outdoors section is a pleasant place to have drinks and dinner. The indoors sections are stock-standard with fairly dated deco but do the job. Bar staff are all irish girls, mostly... More
