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 an amazing pub. Lovely ambience, wonderful staff and great food. It was so good we ate there on 2nights. The staff were so friendly and made us very welcome. It is also dog friendly, a big plus for us. Our pooch was very well...looked after too. We cannot reccommend this eatery highly enough, nor the lovely poeple working there. A must visit pub. You won't be disappointedMore

Excellent quality of food, and service. The meal arrived hot and well presented and we were really well looked after by the excellent Kiera. Chose to eat in the Farmers Bar with a very inviting fire and lovely atmosphere. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Lovely welcoming ambience even though pub not busy. Staff charming and attentive but not overbearing. Bar service very good and food ordering efficient. Both of us had beefburger which was excellent, well cooked, fresh a flavourful. The chunky chips were only just warm which we...mentioned to our server who apologised and within a couple of minutes replaced them. We were both impressed with our experience and also impressed when issues are dealt with so well. Would highly recommend and will definitely return. Thank you!!!More

We've been to this pub on a couple of occasions recently, once for my Birthday in October with my wife and once as a family of 5 for Sunday lunch. Both visits were really disappointing, meaning that I don't think we will be returning in...a hurry... We have been patrons for a while, and previously we've been really really happy. The food was always excellent as was the service. But sadly, no more. The birthday dinner in October was really below the standard we came to expect. Items missing from our order, and the standard was not at all good. Bland, cold and lacklustre. The same can be said about our visit on Sunday. Parts of our order were fridge cold. Not like they had been sitting out for a while, but fridge cold... The staff were attentive, and the tall head waiter chap was engaging and helpful, but the 'spark' that made this place such a destination restaurant has well and truly left the building. The setting and the building itself remains beautiful. I don't know if this place is under new management, or if it has new owners but I hope they take this review in the spirit in which it is meant and that they make the changes needed to get the place back on track....More

Only went in for a drink after a January walk around the countryside but stayed for a lovely lunch. Staff were friendly and helpful. The crab linguine was excellent, tasty and a big portion. Beer was good and revived me after a 5 mile walk...in the mud and water of a wet period thatbwe had just had. Certainly worth going to this off the beaten trrack gastro pub!More

A Christmas family get together was our reason for meeting at The Cock. It was a random choice so no preconceived ideas on the experience. Due to the number in our party we pre ordered our food from the festive menu. There was a good£...atmosphere in the restaurant and we were quickly called through from the bar when the table was ready. I had chosen the trout pate and it was very tasty. There was a lot of trout but I ate every morsel. I heard no complaints from anybody else, with the soup gaining positive comments. We had a bit of a wait for the main courses but with the size of our party this could be expected. I would rathe4 wait and everyone get their food at the same time rather than it coming in dries and drabs. The turkey was well cooked and served with accompanying vegetables that were also well cooked. The beef was well received as was the vegetable wellington. The deserts were large portions and some of the party had difficulty finishing theirs. We all agreed that the food and setting was excellent and the best recommendation I can give is that we are likely to go back next year.More

A cosy, country pub with a good menu - plenty of choices that were competitively priced. Our meals were superb and we found all of the staff friendly and professional.

We have visited thus lovely establishment several times, including Xmas day lunch, and it's always been good. How things have changed. The phone is never answered so you have to book on line. On arrival with my elderly Father we were shown to our table...one of the very nice staff. We commented that it was cold inside and asked for the heating to be turned up, not very inviting. The food arrived on tepid plates, the food itself was only just warm and soon went cold. The 3 tiny pots of vegetables were slso cold and were of megre size. They offered to change these, but as they were already our plates, there seemed little point. Desserts arrived and I think portion control was order of the day here. Altogether a very disappointing experience when the could do a lot better. I put our findings to the them in a very nice e mail, reiterating that it was just feed back and they could do better. To this day, I haven't had the courtesy of a reply.More

Visited last Saturday evening to a packed house. Our group of 4 enjoyed some very well executed and most tasty and flavoursome dishes. Scallops were delicious, and perfectly cooked, as too was the sea bass. And not least, the delicious, juicy rib eye and their...creamy chicken supreme. Combined with polite and attentive service, in what is a very handsome place to dine, we enjoyed a really super evening. Preferring ourselves, the more traditional rustic bar area – which has a great provincial country vibe. Looking forward to visiting this special place again soon.More
