We only took a beer but we should have eaten there instead our other italian diner experience of Launceston. The place is nice a large choice of beer completed by an attentive service. We did like this Pub.

As this is a British pub, the meals are naturally in that style. The beef and Guinness pie is exceptional, as was the "bangers and mash". Watching other meals being served to patrons, all dishes were huge and definitely value for money

This pub has undergone a huge overhaul by the new proprieters; a new menu offers delicious hearty meals in generous portions and these are very well prepared. They offered a huge range of craft beers and wines, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A great place to dine for couples as well as for large groups, very suited... More

Lovely - upstairs loads of room, well priced, family all fed. Too easy! Nice photographs around the room of Titanic, Winston Churchill ... all very British, so I approved :)

Awesome food- amazing filo parcel! Huge servings and nice to eat upstairs away from bar. Staff looked tired and ready for bed? Could have been friendlier...

Pretty consistent food and a very good range of beers. It is a "British" pub so mainly UK style meals, the Irish Stew is very good as is the Guinness pie. Pretty good wine list and not too dear. Plenty of good local and boutique beers to choose from.

Would be far from my first choice, but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of meals of offer here. Enjoyed a really good steak veges and chips. So enjoyable will be back again soon. The dining area is indifferent and the hotel functions on pokies and a smoking room.... so its far from palatial. Great feed however.

We were visiting Launceston with friends and went out looking for a pub meal. The Cock & Bull was great! Beautiful meals - there were 4 of us and we all ordered something different for mains AND dessert - all delicious. Prices were also good. Quick service and friendly staff. Also a great variety of beverages on tap - great... More

This was my second choice as I went to Irish Murphys and their bistro was closed for renovations :( The Beef Guinness Pie was definitely a winner and the staff were fantastic. "Great Customer Service" Prices are reasonable for this establishment and it feels like a old English Pub! Would definitely recommend.
