Visited during hot weather while on short brrak and we sat outside with dogs in lovely garden. Menu had extensive range of tasty sounding meals. We were served drinks and food by lovely friendly waitress. Excellent shared platter to start with - 6 items .Unusual choices including pigs cheeks tomato tartlet and mackerel with tapenade . Plenty for two. Grrat... More

This was our first visit, on the recommendation of a relative. We were met with a warm, friendly welcome and ushered a very comfortable bar for pre-dinner drinks. We ordered sea bass, plaice and baked hake. All three dishes were excellent. The desserts were equally good. All in all, one of the best meals we have had out in quite... More

We frequent the Cock O Barton a lot and love the atmosphere but this is the first wedding we've been to. For most of the guests it was their first visit and everyone was impressed. All the guests were greeted properly, the canapés on arrival were beautiful and the wedding breakfast was excellent. My husband and I had chosen different... More

Visited many years ago and it was great. Went again a couple of years ago and it was not so good. This time it was superb. Food and service just great. I have heard that it has had a new chef, perhaps true, not sure, but I can say the chefs cooked up an amazing dinner. The waitress was so... More

We simply can't sing the praise of "The Cock" as a venue enough. We took what we thought was quite a gamble having our wedding entirely in the confines, well if you count the marquee on the rear lawn, little did I know we were in such dedicated and professional hands, nothing to worry about. From the moment we walked... More

My wife and I made our first visit to the Cock O Barton on the strength of friends' recommendations and the many online reviews. It lived up to its reputation in every respect. It is set in beautiful surroundings, parking is easy, the food is great, and the service friendly and attentive. As a history-lover, the sense of dining in... More

We called in at the Cock O Barton after visiting a local garden open under the NGS. This was my first visit. It was Sunday around 2.30 and the sun was shining. First impressions were very good, plenty of parking space surrounded by extensive gardens and out door seating, all overlooking the Cheshire country side. The interior was really relaxing... More
