Managed to find this place on Trip Advisor with plenty of great reviews and only a few minutes away. Called up and spoke to the friendly owner... More

The owners almost always working behind the bar or managing the restaurant. They also have a Farers Market once a month in the spacious... More

We went to the Cock for the first time with friends for our annual dinner! We received a very friendly welcome and the pub had a lovely atmosphere with real fires and tasteful Christmas decorations. The food was excellent, in fact I have never tasted lamb so good! The service was wonderful too. We all had an absolutely fantastic evening.... More

We met up for our annual dinner between our three families for the first time at the Cock. We will be back! ! The food was excellent, the welcome warm and very friendly, even the real fires were roaring. Good recommendation for a meal out in the country.

Went with 11 others last night. We had pre ordered so there was no delay. All three courses were delicious but the shoulder of lamb was exceptional. I asked for the recipe.
