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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Walked in today without a booking. Was approached and welcomed straight away. Food was great and decided to book our Christmas Staff Party for 18 people there and then. Friendly and great atmosphere. Thank you Andy & Hannah 👍

New to the village so we thought we would pop in and have a drink and some lunch. At first, we thought the pub was closed as there was a sign on the door advising no food as the chef was ill so we thought...we would have a drink instead. There were around 7 people at the bar, as we walked in any sound of conversation stopped and the barman/owner just looked at us, it felt as though we weren't supposed to be there, I can only describe it as he looked somewhat shocked, we had entered the pub. I thought we may have walked into a private function, no hint of a hello or good afternoon or I will be with you in a minute. Not being able to serve food must affect business, not being welcoming and hospitable will also affect your business! We didn't eat so I can't review on that but in respect of hospitality the experience was uncomfortable and very strange.More

Four of us just had a really lovely dinner at the Cock Inn. A,relatively small menu but that’s because everything is cooked fresh. Lamb and beef cheeks a highlight but to be honest we all four really enjoyed all of our three courses. Attentive table...service from Hannah and nice that Andy (the Landlord) sat with us at the end of our meal and talked about the menu and future plans. Would thoroughly recommend and we will be back!More

As we are moving to Hanslope in the next couple of months, we thought we'd try out the local pub. The Cock Inn in Hanslope is a little gem. Immediately we were welcomed by Hannah. We sat in the front terrace/garden in the sunshine under...a parasol. We ordered two roast beef dinners and we were not disappointed. In fact it was delicious and all home cooked, right down to the homemade horseradish sauce. Table service, lovely attentive staff home cooked food, and a well presented clean pub. What more you could you ask for? We have definitely found our new local, and we look forward to coming back. Thank you Hannah and staff.More

New owners and a recent refurb have really made the place smart, I have been in and around Hanslope for the last 45 years, but never stepped in the place as always used 2 other locatons in the village, the refurb has made it so...modern, so hats off to whoever done this, the only trouble when you you take 2 children with you for a family meal and all you hear are the stories of the night before by the locals at the bar, maybe 15 yards away its not exactly my cup of tea! You are literally on a knfe edge waiting for the swear words to come out, unfortnately this was the case before we even had our drinks, so just wanted to eat and get out of there! The food was good though but tbh ruined by the loud locals and swearing, give the owner the credit she did go over to the bar and tell them to be quiet, this is where a stud wall could go between to the bar and the eating side, I understand it wouldn't have the open plan feel, but the locals do want to tell their stories of the night before (as I do elsewhere) so maye a stud wall would drown out some of the nosie from the bar. Still in and around Hanslope, so possibly go in there with a mate or few, but not with my wife, my 12 and 7 year ols because of the last experinceMore

We've tried dinner and Sunday lunch here now and cannot fault anything. Great atmosphere, friendly people and excellent service. The food is outstanding - high quality ingredients, cooked to perfection and great value for money. The portion sizes are well judged - you can eat...three courses without that awful over-stuffed feeling afterwards. It also makes a very pleasant change to find somewhere that puts some thought into creating dishes for people who don't eat meat instead of perpetually offering mushroom risotto. Very highly recommended.More
