Description: This outstanding village pub can be found adjacent to the main A559 in the scenic area of Great Budworth. The Cock O' Budworth is a former 17th century coaching inn, which now oozes class and style. It is beautifully decorated throughout, and is everything that you might expect from a traditional country pub; open fires, a rabbit warren of rooms and low beams. However there is much more to The Cock O’Budworth, since it’s recent refurbishment it boasts a beautiful interior that it the perfect place eat or drink and to enjoy a special night out with friends and family. This is definitely a hidden gem that once you have visited you will return to time and time again.Pete and Karen took over here in October 2010 and since their arrival the place has once again become one of Cheshire's destination places to dine and drink. Proprietor Pete has been in the catering trade for the past 16 years, twelve of those with Karen – indeed The Cock is Karen & Pete’s third successful venture as licensees. Both of them are qualified chefs, but whilst Pete remains in tight control of the kitchen Karen lovingly looks after front of house of this family-friendly, picture postcard pub. Karen’s extensive experience from her background in top hotels to managing a busy city centre restaurant ensures that your visit is memorable from start to finish, a fact to which her growing band of loyal customers will attest! Besides the excellent hospitality and the well kept ales, which include Holt's Bitter and regular guest ales, customers are drawn locally, and from further afield, to enjoy the delicious meals served. All the food is freshly prepared on site by Pete’s small brigade of chefs and where possible all the ingredients are locally sourced. Pete says “We like to make use of the best local suppliers, not just because we can be assured of the best quality produce, but also because we believe the ‘local’ pub has a duty to support the community of which it is a part of” You will also find a specials board that, when in season, features locally caught game including such mouth watering dishes as; Rabbit Pie, Guinea Fowl with Whisky & Orange Sauce, Game Pie and Pheasant Breast with Caramelized Apples & Calvados. Karen & Pete believe in the old saying ‘if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well’ and nowhere is this more true than with their menu which features traditional pub food made to the highest standard. The menu includes such classics as; Steak & Ale Pie, Fish & Chips and Gammon Steak as well as Pete’s take on Thai Red Chicken Curry and Beef Stroganoff. Vegetarians are also well cared for, most noticeably with the Individual Cheese & Onion Pie which is good enough to give even the most ardent carnivore pause for thought!The main menu includes the option of smaller portion meals on a healthy proportion of the dishes - less quantity, the same fantastic quality!The Cock’s famous roast dinners are added to the menu on Sundays. A selection of roast meats are available served with all the trimmings, including a fantastic home made Yorkshire pudding, they are definitely not to be missed!

“Special 90th Birthday meal”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went as a family to celebrate my Mother in laws 90th Birthday. We went on a lovely warm friday evening. we all enjoyed the food. There was the option to have a smaller portion which 3 of us did. The deco was nicely done. No air conditioning in the conservatory so we all got very hot whilst eating. We thought the service was good and friendly.

“A good experience again”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We decided to visit the restaurant again with some friends who enjoyed it as much as us. On a hot sunny day it was nice to sit out on the patio area which is clean and inviting.

The service was once again excellent and the hostess Karen is welcoming and obviously a keen baker as there was a speciality cake on offer.

The food is good value and it is a great place for the whole family to enjoy good food and drink in a relaxing atmosphere

“Enjoying great company but unfortunately not great food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Thought to go for a great Saturday lunch.... Service ok, but I would not recommend the steak baguette. 2 small pieces of tiny slices of steak in the baguette was just not cutting it. We tried the bulls head in moberley and would definitely recommend this pub for character and service. Althought not tried the food. It smelled very nice though.

“Pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

A return visit and nice lunch. One of the great things about this place is that it does small portions (which are probably all that most people want as the ordinary portions are really large) so you are not outfaced by the plate put in front of you. Food freshly cooked and hot. Good prices, would go back more often but a bit far for us just to go there.
