This place was recommended by a customer of my boyfriend and we were not disappointed. The food and the staff were great. I will certainly tell people of this great find.

Chose the Cock to meet my father as it was just about halfway between us. Slightly chaotic as there was a staff shortage but we were provided with a super lunch, which included a very good pie and a jug of gravy. We'd happily return

Went for dinner the other night, good food as always. Love the steak stones, make sure you try. The staff and managment help make this place, really friendly atmosphere, good food, good beer, what more do you want? oh and walking distance for me = even better. They fully deserve their trip Advisor award.

Sunday lunch at the Cock has to be one of the best ever. The roast beef we had today was really tender and cooked just right with a nice pink colour. Vegetables clearly fresh and seasonal and served in a classic English pub. Great value for money.

We found the Cock because we were on the M1, in desperate need of food and drink, and could not face motorway services. A useful website brought this pub to our attention. Head south from junction 15 of M1 for about two miles, enter the village of Roade and at a mini-roundabout where the road veers right, take a left... More

The pub has a really good atmosphere with excellent beer. The food is nothing special really and a little over-priced for what it is. Sunday roasts are excellent!

Needing something to eat after a long journey, two of us had an evening meal one midweek day. While there is nothing truly outstanding about the food or venue we think it does offer a little bit extra to the average pub meal and all in all, it was a very pleasant meal in pleasant surroundings and at a very...
