Our booking was made 1 week prior to the night we wished to dine. Upon booking we were not informed of the special St Patrick's Day menu. I rang on the day of the booking to confirm numbers and asked if there was anything happening for St Patrick's Day and that is when i was told about the special menu.... More

This pub had a bit of atmosphere. Was recommended to us by a local. Staff were friendly. Plenty of seats. Good range of choices on the menu. Had the roast of the day. $19 for a huge meal. Plenty of meat and veg. My husband had the crumbed scallops. He enjoyed them. Batter wasn't too thick. All in all a... More

Food was average in taste but there was quite a quantity served, couldn't finish the Chicken Parmy as very large serve. The quinoa dish was not what I anticipated and was glad I added the chicken option as I couldn't have eaten the dish by itself. Surroundings fair, a bit gloomy. Service ok.

The meal was excellent and plenty on the plate. The staff provide a very good service. The selection of tap beers is maybe a bit over the top and the wine wasn't the best but all N all a good night.

Had a meal at this pub which was within walking distance from our hotel. The pub serves typical pub grub from the UK. Had the Guinness Pie and Chicken Parmigiana. Good not outstanding. Place is fairly relaxed and good if you wanted to sit and have a drink with no meal.

Delicious juicy sirloin steak perfectly cooked! Chips were to die for and small side salad was crisp and tasty. There were about 16 of us and many had the curry which they said was delicious, and the "Beef and Guiness Pie" was a huge hit. One English girl said it was the best she had ever eaten. Service was outstanding,... More

Very little to recommend at this pub. While we didn't expect fine dining, the food was very poor value. The fish was a thin strip coated in a huge amount of thick, stodgy and undercooked batter, while the roast pork was hard and overcooked. This was bad enough, but made worse by the rude, curt and unprofessional service we received... More

The Cock N Bull is a simply no frills pub, complete with meat raffles and locals. Service is friendly and the menu offers the usual pub fare - from chicken parmigiana to beef & guiness pies, with options for kids. Food arrives quickly and the meals are filling with salad and chips. We sat downstairs, but there's also upstairs dining... More
