Typical Aussie pub type food. Good selection available and portions enormous. I chose Caesar salad and added chicken for $2, I had 5 large pieces of tasty chicken. Far too much for me to eat. Took 3 pieces home for lunch next day!

Interesting place with large animal heads on walls. Roomy and clean with good choice of beers and huge helpings from the restaurant. We ate here twice and really enjoyed it at a reasonable price.

Well the Cock & Bull name alone makes it a must see. There are many different plates that can be shared with friends like the nacho platter, but the must have is the chicken schnitzel with chips and a side of mushroom gravy.

I had a meal from the specials menu here, and the food was great. It's good value, no frills pub grub, and the atmosphere is chilled. Portions are huge - I'll normally finish my meal easily, but there was no chance with this place! Decent priced drinks too. Would recommend.

Generous portions. The mushroom sauce was great. What ever you try, get the mushroom sauce. The crock and kangaroo sausages were a bit dry, but schnitzel was pretty good.
