Beautiful food, long wait

I dined here with some family for someone's birthday. We had booked a table in advance for 8 of us. For a Thursday evening I was surprised at how busy it was! To start we ordered the 'garlic bread'. I didn't enjoy this at all, it was on a pizza sort of base, but was hard and crispy. The... read more

A good meal, good atmosphere, but a bit expensive for what was provided. That sums it up I do not have anything else to say

Great pub with great food & drink & lovely friendly staff. Beautiful inside & great outside patio. However the female toilets were absolutely appalling which let the whole place down. The toilets were fairly clean (apart from window sill which was filthy) but the state of repair was diabolical. Cistern falling apart....doors barely lockable.....toilet seat falling of......one of my friends... More

We spent a lovely evening here a week ago. The food was excellent. The service was also fantastic served by a young and very professional waitress who recommended dishes confidently, she definitely knew the menu and the food on it, and she was extremely polite. Her name was Clodagh and could not have done enough for us. We had a... More

Food was delivered in a very timely manner and was fabulous. The quality was exceptional. The service was excellent and the cost was spot on for... More

5 of us arrived on a Saturday evening and hadn't booked a table. The young lady who greeted us was very accommodating and managed to find a space for us. We were advised that we had about 90 mins before the table was required but this was more than enough time to have two courses and a couple of drinks... More

This is a regular favourite of ours and offers good value and good food. The location, Wishaw, on the outskirts of Sutton is picturesque and provides a nice escape from the High Street. Service is good and the selection of Beer & Wine is good with something for everyone.

Our first visit to this restaurant / stylish pub after recommendations from friends. On entry we were greeted by friendly staff and the decor looked great. After a few minutes I went to the toilets to be disgusted by the state of them which immediately made me paranoid that the kitchen may be in the same state. I was shocked... More

We had a lovely meal , with family, at The Cock Inn, on Friday. The food was delicious . The service was second to none . The ladies toilets were a disgrace . The radiator, taps, tiling and overall appearance were awful. Come on, sort this out .
