We held our joint birthday party in the Old Barn restaurant at the Cock Inn on 12 April and had the room to ourselves. We had 20 guests (including two small children) and were seated at a long and spacious table running down the centre of the faithfully restored old barn, now an atmospheric, spacious room with authentic beamed ceiling and sympathetic décor. The room and table were beautifully set out and perfect for our needs with fresh flowers decorating its centre set on pristine tablecloths. Attention to detail was very evident. No effort was spared to make our special occasion a success in every way.
We had agreed a set menu with Hilary, the restaurant manager, with several choices for starter and main course and were able to pre-order our guests choices in advance. This ensured that service was fast and efficient and everyone ate their choices at the same time. We were looked after by Hilary, Sue and Sophie who worked very hard to ensure that everything we wanted was there waiting for us.
The standard of food provided by Andy and the kitchen team was excellent and the wine was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and our lunch was in every way just perfect. We have travelled widely both at home and abroad and we have seldom encountered such professional and sympathetic treatment on an occasion that was very important to us, our family and our friends.
I wholeheartedly commend this pub and its restaurant to anyone thinking of marking a special occasion with a memorable meal.

We have just returned home after another excellent meal in this friendly pub. We had booked a table (which is essential as it is very popular with walking parties) though today it was very full with folk like us who were just enjoying lunch out on a miserable rainy cold day! We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. I had Sea Bass Nicoise and it was superbly cooked, indeed the best I have ever had and we eat out frequently! My husband had Gammon and he also was equally pleased. We will certainly keep this pub on our visiting list. Today was an excellent test of efficiency of the staff as they were extremely busy, but still had time to give us a friendly smile. Here you are treated personally, not just a Table number, Thank you.

Lovely traditional pub, beams,open log fire,great garden with outdoor dinning area and a large,safe kids play area. Eat inside or outside or book a table in their lovely restaurant,regular,good selection menu with a daily specials board full of goodies. Starters and main courses very good value but deserts overpriced.

A group of 20 friends stopped here for snack lunch whilst on a walk. Whilst I understand that the pub is busy on a Bank Holiday Monday, this does nor explain why when we all ordered food within 10 minutes of each other, some of us had to wait over half an hour after others had their food.
The staff were bringing out plates of food but seemed to have no idea who it was for, despite having to give in your table number

The waitress was apologetic and suggested we speak to the manager. When he came out he was unfriendly, not in the least apologetic and downright rude. Apparently it was our fault for ordering food when they were so busy!!!

I'm afraid if you're in the restaurant business then being busy isn't an excuse for poor service. We must have spent £200 in his pub and he couldn't have cared less.

The food was also expensive for what you got. £6.95 for 4 triangles with no salad or anything and over £7.00 for a ploughmans which was a very basic bread and cheese.

This pub relies on it's location for it's customers....pity it can't put in some more effort

stopped by here on our way through to Amersham, seemed popular & looked like it had a kids play area, decided to give it a go. Very disappointed. play area was poor-average, our young boys were bored in 5mins. Bar service was slow & unfriendly. 2 drinks cost £7.10 for 1pint & 1fruit juice!!! Food was expensive too, £8.50 for a Ploughman's! Hot meals averaged 12.50 ! Prices were ridiculous, kids meals were £5.95..Each!!! Left never to return!
