“Good pub food, but too Smoky”
Reviewed January 20, 2017

Enjoyed the meal but staff and customers all smoking made the ambiance less than appetizing. A common drawback in Indonesia where smoking is out of control. Other than that, good place.

“Good food and friendly atmosphere ”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 via mobile

Nice place, somehow I always end up here for a drink and maybe a meal. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. No nasty surprices. Pool table.

“A very nice pub”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 via mobile

This is one of the better pubs in the Nagoya expat pub area. It is well appointed, clean, the beers are cold and the barmaids are not pushy as they can be in other establishments.
The meals menu is extensive, the meals are well made and indeed the Cock & Bull also supplies the meals for some of the other nearby pubs.
Like most of the pubs in the area it can get a little boisterous when the local and Singapore expats congregate at weekends, with sports dominating the many TVs around the walls, but that is the primary market for the pubs in this area.

“Its not about the food, but it kind of is”
Reviewed September 23, 2016

Well.

I reckon I was probably one of the "old drunk guys" from the previous review.

I don't remember much, but:
Not to worry, the food is western and acceptable. When you dine out in Batam, you are buying the whole package. The flirty golf caddies we met during the day (very good caddies BTW) miraculously appeared at the restaurants and nightclubs our tour operator had recommended. Imagine that, played like a violin in Asia. No problem.
Love it.
Cannot wait to return.

“Good Reasonably Priced Food”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 via mobile

Food was reasonably priced and good, staff were friendly, and there's a free pool table too. Place was a little too rowdy with quite a number of old drunk men, and alcohol isn't cheap too.
