We stayed for two nights in this old coaching inn in Stony Stratford. We arrived before check-in time of 2pm, but our room had already been cleaned and we were able to go in straight away. Best point: very good breakfast menu, including not just full English breakfast but a choice of fish and egg dishes. Worst point: It was... More

I stayed at The Cock Hotel just for 1 night with my friend. The room is supposed to be ready for you at 2pm. We arrived just after 4pm, was given our key, but when we got to our room the beds were still unmade from the visitors from the night before. Not a huge problem, so i went to... More

I stayed at the The Cock last week for a couple of days. The room and the food were great. I was made to feel very welcome by John the manager, and the ladies behind the bar. Big gay Al (his words not mine) was also very chatty. I arrived late on the first night and they left the kitchen... More

Well run, professional, friendly and really great customer service at this charming, historic hotel. Set in an attractive old coaching town Stony Stratford, mentioned in Jane Austin! Well worth a visit.

Loved our overnight stay at The Cock, and the manager was so nice and very obliging. The rooms were modern, clean, and very spacious. Our breakfast was really nice and the staff very friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for an English pub experience. Loved it!!
