Going to a pub as a group of 10 (5 couples) can sometimes be a challenge but the Cock Inn is a big pub so we had space. The bar staff were also quick to serve. There was a great blues singer on Saturday night...More

Definitely one of the best pubs in leek, great space and atmosphere, freindly owners and staff. Always something on, blues fest or live music, quiz nights. Just a lovely place to spend a few hours.

Yet again another fine meal was had. The party of 4 had superb different meals with very good service. The information about the meals from the chef and his team was appreciated along with the friendly bar staff.

Just popped into the cock for some tea to check out the new chef. The mixed grill was one of the best I have ever had. Absolutely beautiful! Definitely worth a visit

The Cock Inn has always been been a good watering hole. Food is excellent but with Carling at £3.70 a pint it's on the expensive side but it keeps the riff raff out.

2 female bar staff do not think it's important to smile and think it is ok to be moody taking your lunch time order! Such a contrast to the friendly customers and waitresses bring out the food, which was generous and good value.More

We like the Cock Inn - a Joules pub serving a great selection of ales. Always worth a visit when in Leek. Warm and welcoming. Great coffee too.
