Seems like every time I visit, the food is below standard. Example: unchewable chicken in the chicken club wrap. It is very noisy inside, but the outside is very pleasant. Large selection of craft beer.

Stopped in for lunch after a meeting. The beer selection is overwhelming, so you better know what you like or it can be too much to choose from. Ordered a cheeseburger on a pretzel bun, which I assumed would be a bun, but was a pretzel cut in half. Not the best base for a burger. As such, could not... More

Stopped by to get out of very heavy rain. Glad we did. Excellent service. Loved the fish sandwich. I always thought it was expensive. now I know that it is not. Only draw back was too much soccer on TVs.

Decided to take my puppy out for a walk and went to Htde Park square and stopped at the Cock & Bull because the patio is pet friendly. I had the baked cod with steamed veggie. The cod was delicious and the veggies perfectly steamed. Price was very reasonable, service was great and timely. I can not speak to the... More

My husband and I stopped at the Cock and Bull for a quick lunch while in that area of Cincinnati. We chose to sit outside to enjoy the day and watch all the activity on the square. This place is known for its craft beers in which my hubby partook. :) We both had a salad and split a Corned... More

My group made a quick stop into this bar to grab a drink and a quick bite. The interior of the building was clean and nice, with lots of seating, especially at the bar. The menu was decent, with pretty standard bar grub. We enjoyed the pretzels and cheese. The bartender saw we were in a hurry, and did a... More

I love this place and eat at Cock and Bull every time I am in Cincy. Love the atmosphere, the wonderful neighborhood, the staff and the service. They have a bar upstairs and down and TV's. We were there Friday night and they also had live music which was a treat. Parking is always easy. I got the pulled pork... More

Standard American bar food menu. Over priced due to prestigious location in Hyde Park square. Long wait during peak weekend hours. Nice outdoor seating area.

I'm not a big pub person but this pub actually had decent food! The chili was good and they had a good Chili/salad combo. In my experience this usually means bland salads, but in this case there was a great Spinach & feta salad with a great apple dressing!

Just a nice place to grab a quick sandwich and a beer in a casual tavern/pub setting. The food is good but the tremendous choice of beer is fantastic. Prices are reasonable and service is good. Go try it. You won't be disappointed.
