My partner and I visited the BC on 6th April and found the service to be so appallingly awful that we got up and left before we even ordered. It was a bank holiday and we knew the pub may have finished serving food for the afternoon however when we asked the waitress she confirmed they would still serve food.... More

After visiting family in Millom we decided to pop in here on our way home for our tea for the time. We didn't book in advance & luckily a few tables were free, wait wasn't too bad either considering the pub was quite busy both with dining & drinking. I chose off the specials board - duck with cranberry &... More

I lived in Broughton in Furness for a short spell in the 80's. The Black Cock Inn became my local. Years later and my job took me back into the Lakes. I needed to find places to stay in different parts of the county and The Black Cock was an easy choice. It's not a Hotel, it's a traditional, homely... More

Just stayed at The Black Cock in Broughton. Nice room if a little querky. We had a lovely evening meal with four friends. The meals were all served piping hot with a good selection of winter vegetables that had been just cooked enough. They gave a little crunch to my Cumberland sausage, mash and wholesome gravy, Three cask ales were... More

Looking forward to a lunch after wlaking in the area. Arrived at 2:10pm and were quite firmly told that the kitchen was closed despite signs etc all stating that food was served all day. Had one drink and left - bar staff not all all helpful.

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family, and have to say the staff were really helpful and friendly and the food and drink were excellent! Great meals, particularly from the specials board, well cooked and presented. The room we stayed in was a little small and the floorboards creaked, but that's all part of the charm of staying...

We popped in at random and thought we would try it! So worth the decision we had a beef roast dinner and it was beautiful. Everything cooked perfect and the plate was set beautifully! Huge portions with loads of flavour! Very happy we tried here and will be back soon! Thankyou! Also they were very busy and managed to find... More

Whilst working locally for 2 weeks I had the great pleasure of eating, and socialising in the black cocktail, for starters the food is quite fantastic, good hearty food, made from local produce, Stacey, Donna, phoebe, steph, peewee, and all the rest of the staff, thanks for helping to make my stay so enjoyable.
