“Excellent food, lovely atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

The outside belies what lies within. A warm and friendly greeting, superb range of well kept real ales and delicious home cooked food. I had the Boar Burgers and my Wife the Chicken , ham and leak pie. Both obviously home made and absolutely delicious. What was really nice to see was that the pub is obviously used as a "local" and was enjoying plenty of trade even later in the evening. Highly recommended.

PS. They allow dogs in and support guide dogs.. a definite plus from us !!

“Good traditional pub food Sunday Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Went to the Cock Inn with my family for Sunday lunch. We all ordered the turkey dinner which came with plenty of meat, Yorkshire pudding, Roast&mash potatoes and plenty of thick gravy. It was very tasty and good value for money

“Lovely food, nice pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Booked here for a meal with friends Good Friday. First impressions were of a country pub out in the middle of nowhere, but it's just off the motorway. Loads of guest beers and a good atmosphere. The food was spot on with proper chips, my partners steak was cooked just as ordered. Good service from the staff too.
Recommended.
