The meals are your basic pub type meals in huge portions. The price is pub prices too. The venue has also fishing & hunting trophies on the walls & ceilings with pub atmosphere. Great place for families & friends. Highly recommended outback style venue.

Great value for money and good quality pub food. I f you want a quiet romantic dinner, this is not the place but great for group get togethers. There are 2 kitchens, each with its own menu which takes a bit of getting used to, but the upside is there is a great range of food to choose from.

A Cairns Landmark, the Cock & Bull has been around for many years. Situated near the hospital, parking usually isn too difficult. The meals are absolutely HUGE, really two people could share one easily. Plenty of meat for carnivores! Popular with locals & tourists alike, worth a visit!
