Description: This outstanding village pub can be found adjacent to the main A559 in the scenic area of Great Budworth. The Cock O' Budworth is a former 17th century coaching inn, which now oozes class and style. It is beautifully decorated throughout, and is everything that you might expect from a traditional country pub; open fires, a rabbit warren of rooms and low beams. However there is much more to The Cock O’Budworth, since it’s recent refurbishment it boasts a beautiful interior that it the perfect place eat or drink and to enjoy a special night out with friends and family. This is definitely a hidden gem that once you have visited you will return to time and time again.Pete and Karen took over here in October 2010 and since their arrival the place has once again become one of Cheshire's destination places to dine and drink. Proprietor Pete has been in the catering trade for the past 16 years, twelve of those with Karen – indeed The Cock is Karen & Pete’s third successful venture as licensees. Both of them are qualified chefs, but whilst Pete remains in tight control of the kitchen Karen lovingly looks after front of house of this family-friendly, picture postcard pub. Karen’s extensive experience from her background in top hotels to managing a busy city centre restaurant ensures that your visit is memorable from start to finish, a fact to which her growing band of loyal customers will attest! Besides the excellent hospitality and the well kept ales, which include Holt's Bitter and regular guest ales, customers are drawn locally, and from further afield, to enjoy the delicious meals served. All the food is freshly prepared on site by Pete’s small brigade of chefs and where possible all the ingredients are locally sourced. Pete says “We like to make use of the best local suppliers, not just because we can be assured of the best quality produce, but also because we believe the ‘local’ pub has a duty to support the community of which it is a part of” You will also find a specials board that, when in season, features locally caught game including such mouth watering dishes as; Rabbit Pie, Guinea Fowl with Whisky & Orange Sauce, Game Pie and Pheasant Breast with Caramelized Apples & Calvados. Karen & Pete believe in the old saying ‘if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well’ and nowhere is this more true than with their menu which features traditional pub food made to the highest standard. The menu includes such classics as; Steak & Ale Pie, Fish & Chips and Gammon Steak as well as Pete’s take on Thai Red Chicken Curry and Beef Stroganoff. Vegetarians are also well cared for, most noticeably with the Individual Cheese & Onion Pie which is good enough to give even the most ardent carnivore pause for thought!The main menu includes the option of smaller portion meals on a healthy proportion of the dishes - less quantity, the same fantastic quality!The Cock’s famous roast dinners are added to the menu on Sundays. A selection of roast meats are available served with all the trimmings, including a fantastic home made Yorkshire pudding, they are definitely not to be missed! Smaller portion and children's roast dinners are also availableOpening Times: 12 noon to 11pm (until midnight Thu, Fri & Sat)Food Service Times: 12 noon to 9pm Mon - Sat & 12noon to 8pm Sun

We have recently discovered this pub again and are very impressed with the quality of the food and the helpful friendly staff. The portion sizes are very generous and the warm rolls served with butter upon arrival is a welcome touch, as we choose from the extensive menu. Last time we visited the barman (could have been the manager) over... More

We stopped here for lunch today, hadn't been before & it was a last minute decision as had intended to eat elsewhere, but they were full & we had time restraints. As soon as we walked in it felt welcoming. Loved seeing the real fire blazing in the grate & the traditional feel to the place made a nice change... More

I visited The Cock O' Budworth with my wife, quite late in the afternoon last Saturday, hoping for a reasonable pub meal, but not really expecting much more than a sandwich, because of the time of day that we arrived. As soon as you walk over the threshold, this pub feels like a place you could spend many happy hours... More

Had a meal recently, my husbands steak and sons steak was alright. My daughter in law had the chicken in a garlic sauce and I had a red ti curry. Both these dishes were very poor, the chicken was tough and both the sauces were thin and not very nice at all.
