Very comfortable atmosphere where people obviously regularly go to for food. Although tied to Greene King they always have a guest ale available. The staff are amazingly attentive and courteous whilst providing terrific customer service. The menu is very slightly limited, but what they provide is very good and satisfies most appetites - the fabulous sticky toffee pudding (and custard)... More

This little town is a bit Hicksville, a lot of 'pubs' but most are really food joints dressed up as pubs. The Cock is a Greene King, which can rarely be forgiven, however it was ok, walked in and it had a 'pub' type seating area. As well as the usual drain water disguised as IPA and Speckled Hen, they...

Went in to get a quick meal. Staff were very friendly and I didn't have to wait long for my food. However, food was very bad. I ordered a 'vegetarian caesar salad'. This meant the chicken was left out, and it was just lettuce and a few croutons. Chips weren't very tastfull either....... A pity that such a simple meal... More

I saw that this pub offers a two meal deal for just £10 and thought I would give them a try. My husband & I went on Wednesday evening and it was very popular with hardly a table left. The lovely lady at the bar said we could have a big round table, even though there were only two of... More

I reviewed the Cock & Bell about 18 months ago, and rereading what I wrote then I was possibly rather harsh, (maybe unfairly?) in my assessment. Since then I have been back twice, including last night, and the experience was vastly superior to my first visit. Last night we had a table booked rather late in the evening as we'd... More

Went for a walk from Sudbury to long Melford. Fancied some lunch so my friend and I popped in to the cock and Bell. Looked like a standard pub with grub and not too expensive. I never expect too much with these type of pubs but this place was a revelation. Two meals for a tenner, some really good beers... More
