“Excellent Christmas Day meal - thank you!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We booked our Christmas meal at Le Coq having been regular visitors for a few years now. We have always enjoyed the food and friendly atmosphere, but our experience on Christmas Day was especially good.

The bar area is quite small for a pub, but never feels very crowded, even when it’s very busy, and you are never waiting long to be served. The staff are always friendly and attentive.

The food was really good, possibly one of the best meals I’ve had at Le Coq. We were particularly impressed given it was Christmas Day; sometimes when we’ve been out elsewhere for a holiday meal, you can get the impression that things are obviously pre-prepared and reheated, but the quality here was really top class. The beef was delicious and I especially enjoyed the honey, whisky and cream flummery for dessert.

Many thanks to John and his staff for a really enjoyable meal.

“What a find!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Only found this place through buying a living social voucher and so glad I did. This is by far the best restaurant I have been to in a long while. Staff were very attentive, food was excellent, good choice menu and a lovely house red. What more do you need? Had a lovely evening in very pleasant surroundings with a great atmosphere and can't wait to return. This is a well above average restaurant serving excellent food. It's a little out in the sticks but well worth the drive. I would have been happy to pay full price for the meal had I not had a voucher. Costs a little more than your average pub meal but worth every penny. I fully recommend it.

“Very pleasant evening”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We came (from France) to celebrate our son's birthday. The food was very good. We would nevertheless wish there was bread with the meal (in France a meal without bread is not a meal!).
A few spelling mistakes to be corrected on the menu: 'Hors d'oeuvre' instead of 'Hors d'ouvre',
'Assiette d'olives' inst. of 'de olives', saucisse d'Alsace' inst. of 'de Alsace' and 'Filets de porc aux poires' inst. of 'poire'.
The athmosphere was nice. We'll come back if we have the opportunity.
