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

When school finished on Wednesday 24th July all the mums decided to go here for some food and drinks.... We were able to sit out in the lovely garden while the children played at the great park they have.... The service and food was excellent ..... Considering they were over run by school children and mums this was no bother... 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...

We had an early New Years Eve meal here and I ordered the Sirloin Steak Stone... I was really impressed and it was very tasty. The choice of steaks you order (including fresh Tuna Steak) comes out sizzling on a Steak Stone in which you complete the process of cooking to your preference. An excellent idea! Included on the side... More

My daughter wanted us to go to the local Taylor Walker chain pub, but as we had a family member visiting us from the Netherlands I insisted we went somewhere a bit more special. So I picked the Cock at Roade, a pub that does home cooked food and had a good rating on Trip Advisor. This was our first... More
