landlord or barman was lovely here and we sat outside with some delicious real ale. Good choice of ales and cider and a nice place to watch the world go by in Lavenham

We booked for Sunday lunch and it seemed reasonably busy - choice of two roasts on offer and we all enjoyed what we got. It's not a fancy menu - it is a traditional english pub food menu. Nice location opposite Lavenham's lovely church and very handy for the lovely farmers market which we went round just beforehand.

We had stayed in Lavenham at the beginning of October, and ate at this pub. We came back to Lavenham for the Christmas Festivities on 6th December, and had a short stay, so decided to eat at The Cock once again. It was very busy on the two nights we ate there, but the staff bought our food to us... More

We visited here after walking from Long Melford on the Lavenham Walk. We had a look at the Swan but it was far too expensive. We enjoyed cod and chips, fish pie, Cumberland sausages and steak pie along with drinks and all were tasty and filling.

Nice pub and nice food at a reasonable price. Plenty of tables and space which is ideal for families. It was very quiet at the time of our visit but we would still return if in the area.

There were 10 of us and we were shown to our table, our orders were taken and when the food came in a good time is was lovely - not one complaint... More

We had two excellent evening meals in this pub which was situated minutes away from our holiday cottage. On both occasions, the meals were freshly cooked, of adequate size and of good quality for the price. The bar staff were friendly. The puzzling thing was that on both evenings we were the only couple in the restaurant!
