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.

The food is consistently good. The menu is good with Chef specials most days. We always order the same dishes for mains and deserts. We leave feeling well fed and content. Prices are good and worth booking in advance as busy at weekend. I Would...definitely recommend the Dirty burger, its a feast!More

Came here for a last minute Sunday lunch. Have eaten a lot of roast dinners in a lot of pubs across Essex/Herts and this was right up there with the best of them. Everything was just perfect, friendly service in a lovely charming pub. Will...definitely be returning soon. Well done to the Cock Inn!! First class.More

Great drinks and beer garden to enjoy the sun. Food is a little bit pricey and menu isn’t that interesting. Simplicity is the key! Overall a nice spot for a drink when you are passing by! Very friendly staff.

Good quality food, with an imaginative selection of specials, way beyond standard pub offerings to supplement the main menu. The Cock has become our venue of choice for weekly dining out. Excellent pub, superb food.

Very attractive pub in pretty village setting. Don’t be put off by the fryer smells that waft out the kitchen and assail you in the car park, open the door and you are greeted by a cosy log burner and bar and friendly staff. Pick...your way through the locals blocking the bar to the restaurant area which is not so nice and rather charmless but the food is v good and staff lovely.More

I am pleased to say this has become our local and how lucky we are. The food as always is great, the service fantastic. Mel and her team have got this just right, maintaining the country pub ambiance but with food that stands out from...the rest. There is an excellent variety, catering for all tastes. The setting is beautiful and looking forward to going back in July. Highly recommend you visit and sample the food or even just for drinks.More

Amazingly consistent great food. Imaginative menu items but also regular pub classics. Wide choice of food and drinks. Nice atmosphere and superb outdoor eating areas. Covered areas are very weather proof and comfortable.

Returned to this lovely pub after waiting too long because ofCovid lockdowns etc. They have made very good arrangements for eating 'outside' with classy covered protection from the weather and pretty efficient heating as well. So all in all, you can eat in reasonable comfort...with non family-members (up to six per table) and still meet the current government guidelines. Of course if you are all famiy together you can still enjoy the extra homeliness of table service inside. One niggle was that we discovered that smoking was allowed in the covered outside area which did annoy us. However we understand that this is to change imminently with non-smoking instructions being implemented and quite rightly too, as under the new rules, virtually everyone seated outsied or in will have to be eating. (There do still appear to be a surprising number of inconsiderate smokers around!) The food was excellent and the service, considering the difficulties the staff had to cope with was very good and friendly. As before we found the fish and chips superbly cooked and served and the Friday two-for-one is a bargain. The lamb casserole was also pronounced 'delicious' as was the Real Ale and there are some other nice things on the specials and ordinary menus - I particularly liked the sound of tiger prawns in garlic. Next time perhaps!More

My go to place of choice over the past few years whenever my folks come for lunch. Both of them deserve the best and through various chefs Mel has maintained a consistently high standard of food both in the choice and the quality. I have...a high standard as a cook myself and recommend you come here and try it for yourself. The best of the restaurants locally at good prices and with the highest quality of food and presentation.More
