Nice to go to a proper pub that does simple pub grub well. The proper pies were delicious and the roast beef tender. And all for a very reasonable price. We will be returning.

We 'discovered' The Cock when house-hunting in 2015 and what a find! From our first lunch and many times since we moved to Ashbourne in December 2015, we have never been disappointed. Whether we go on our own (newly retired couple) or when our children...More
