“Reliable spot for a western style feed a few quiet beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I have been to C&B quite a few times over the last number of months while living in Batam. While I do enjoy Indonesian dishes and I like the crazy atmosphere in many bars around town, sometimes you just want to have a quiet few beers, enjoy a steak and watch a game of anything in English on tv.
Cock and Bull is the best place I've found in Nagoya for this. The staff are friendly and efficient and not at all pushy - you will never be asked to buy drinks for staff here. There's a really good menu of both local and western options at really reasonable prices... I've had salmon, steak and lambchops as well as beef randang, etc. and it's all been really good with a nice home cooked flavour to it.
The bar itself is clean and spacious.. has a pool table and a few spots where you can eat on your own or with a group.
On occasion it will host a party for its regular expat customers and it can be very busy on those nights, but generally it is pretty low key.
The musical taste here tends to be 80's and 90's rock so if you're a Guns and Roses fan, you'll be in your element :)

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Visited batam and went to various bars & restaurants. I must say this place is a nice chilling place. Unlike other bars, girls hassle you to buy drinks. But here, they take care of you and very hospitable. "Puppi" the owner friendly and fantastic. Will recommend to all for relax and chilling out

“Great Place to chill after work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

this bar, one of many in the area, is nice and relaxed. The girls are there of course but they look after you and don't hassle you. It does western food if you want that and the the usual drinks. Popular with expats after work and never too busy. If you want wild - well that's just across the street...
My rating of very good reflects my requirement for a relaxed inexpensive meal and a couple of drinks. You must always remember it's Asia - western standards don't apply?
