Description: Dating back to the 16th Century, The Cock Inn remains one of the most popular pubs in St Albans. We are known for our great food, real ales and extensive wine list. In winter we have a roaring log fire whilst in summer we have a fantastic heated garden offering a little oasis of calm in the centre of St Albans.

Visited as a spur of the moment choice and very glad we did. Fantastic staff, food and decor. Not much else needs saying apart from make sure you pay this place a visit if your in the area.

Came here on a Monday evening as visitors to the town - walked past lots of empty restaurants and came across this lovely, busy, vibrant little bar. We ordered off the set menu and were very impressed with both the quality and quantity of food given to us. Duck confit, crab cakes, lamb koftas, all very flavoursome and well cooked. All staff were very polite and helpful and did all they could to help us and I would definitely return!

Maybe they were having an "off day" but really disappointed with the service yesterday. Great menu and selection but we wanted a few amendments (nothing major just no salad dressing and boiled potatoes not chips). Seemed to be such an effort for the staff to help us - there was a lack of enthusiasm in the service. Thankfully the food was very tasty. I had gone back here for a second time having had fab lunch a few weeks ago. Service just seemed to be an effort for the staff and was somewhat embarrassing for me as I raved about the place to my sister and friend. We ended up cutting lunch short and went elsewhere for coffee.

we occasionally lunch here and it's oh so good. The meal deal at lunch time is always worth a look and the staff always give the impression they actually like people!
Food well presented, varied and freshly cooked. Well worth a visit

Been coming to this pub for a while to have drunks with friends and always noticed the menu and great food coming out the kitchen. We arrived without booking on a sunny Sunday afternoon and was able to get a seat outside we both had roast dinners and they were very good not as good as my own but nearly ;) he meet was well cooked and the veg also all served with a great gravy and homemade Yorkshire pudding ! Will definatley be returning to try the normal menu :)
