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

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.

The service is terrible. The wait for your food is extremely long, every time I go here I automatically regret it, especially with a big group. Food isn't worth the wait!

Came here twice recently. Small place, but great location and food! Especially nice in the summer time when there is plenty of action outside. Parking can be challenging, but worth the walk!
