Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great find! We were staying at Flackley Ash Hotel for my partner’s 70th and we walked down to The Cock Inn each of the four nights we were staying there. What a welcome from Simon and his colleagues and from the regulars. We...had a great time and would love to go back. Food was amazing too. Great menu. Loads of choice. Thanks for the games of pool.More

I booked a table a few weeks ahead for a Sunday Roast as was having a break for a few days in the area. Arrived for our booked table for 3pm to be told they were no longer serving. So we went away hungry and...could not find anywhere else in the area at short notice. I told the lady behind the bar we booked a table at 3pm….she was just staring at me!! Why take a booking if it cannot be honoured! Maybe we dodged a bullet! Will never be back!More

We had a lovely family dinner here earlier this summer. Very friendly service and an excellent and varied menu. We didn't have long to wait for the food to arrive. There's also a beer garden to enjoy when the weather's good.

It is a pretty basic pub, but the staff are very, very friendly. The food just lacked flavour - one of us had macaroni cheese, and there wasn’t much if any cheese in the sauce - it was more like macaroni bechamel with a sprinkling...of cheddar on top. That said, the portion was big and the fries were nice. The bar tender did vape as he went around the pub, which we didn’t love, but it’s his place I guess! The pub was very quiet, which was a real shame, but it’s got a nice little garden out the back and it’s fairly priced.More

My friend, who was visiting from The Netherlands, wanted to experience a “traditional meal in a traditional pub”. Most establishments now advertise themselves as gastro pubs, which wasn’t what we were looking for. Having read the most recent reviews and looked at the menu we...selected ‘The Cock Inn’ in Peasmarsh. My friend ordered from the section entitled ‘pub classics’, selecting Steak & Ale Pie which was described as (presumably served with) “Creamy Mashed Potato & Seasonal Vegetables” for £15 As a vegan who is wheat intolerant my own choice was very limited but I’m used to this. There was no indication that any dishes were gluten free, although there was the standard notice regarding allergens “please make us aware when ordering food” I did query one dish which turned out not to be gluten free and took a stab in the dark and selected “a trio of sausages’ which was served with ‘beans and chips’. The beans turned out, not surprisingly. to be baked beans. We ordered cola light and bitter lemon to drink. The drinks were fine but when my friend ordered a second glass of bitter lemon he couldn’t drink it - he said it tasted as if someone had squirted washing up liquid into the glass. Both hot meals arrived on cold plates. Neither looked remotely appetising. The pastry on the steak pie was pale and insipid, (it looked undercooked) and was served with gravy, a dollop of overcooked cabbage and carrots. There was a round of what looked like potato mashed with parsnip or onions. What I had thought was either parsnip or onions turned out to be just lumps of potato. So much for the ‘creamy’ mashed potato and ‘seasonal’ vegetables. Carrot and cabbage cannot, surely, be described as ‘seasonal, vegetables’ in August - or does seasonable now mean vegetables that are available whatever the season? My meal was so poor that I left most of it. Both sausages and crinkle chips were obviously straight out of the freezer: some of the chips were hot but too many were barely warm and the baked beans were cold. The sausages, however, had been heated to within an inch of their lives: hot but hard, dried up and tasteless. I was charged £12 for this! When I went to pay, the barmaid, who was friendly enough, asked if we had enjoyed our meal. I replied “Not really” and went on to describe the state of my meal. “Oh we always serve on cold plates and you should have told me about the cold food and I would have heated it up for you”. I didn’t mention the soapy drink as I felt it was up to my friend to make his own complaints as I hadn’t actually tasted either the drink or his meal but he (and I) just wanted to leave there as fast as possible. My advice to prospective diners is: read ALL the reviews before you go there. We should have done. The claim on their website is “It's important to us that we serve the best quality food we can to our customers”. All I can say is “Really?”More

This place is a home away from home, with a warm and friendly atmosphere and attentive staff who make you feel like family. The food is fantastic, with options for every taste, and the beer selection is impressive. But what truly sets this pub apart...is the genuine warmth and camaraderie that you feel when you're there. It's a community that embodies the best of British hospitality, and it's waiting for you to join it. Highly recommended. (Sirloin steak was truly next level!) My son brought his guitar ans was playing after we finished eating.. A Great evening!More

Stayed at the end of May BH. Depends on how much time you will be on-site. There is a small play area for kids. This is a pub with camping.
