“Good food at a price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is our latest visit to 'The Cock Inn' and we were not disappointed. A combination of friendly staff and good hot food delivered to the table made for an enjoyable dining experience. To reflect the price I would have anticipated boneless sea bass and a slightly larger serving of pork with our mains.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

I always consider it a treat to go to The Cock as it's not cheap and it always feel special when we're there. But I am easily pleased I suppose! We went early on a Tuesday evening so it wasn't busy. Great service at the bar, good wine, nice beer. We were able to choose our table and the restaurant service was great too. I had the lamb koftas which were delicious - other half had a mashed potato hash thing which he said was weird but nice! My haddock and chips was very hot, beautifully fresh and perfectly cooked. He had the pork belly which was 'delicious'. Maybe the standards of service and food drop a little at busy times but on this occasion we couldn't fault it - freshly cooked delicious food in very nice surroundings with friendly service. We'll be back again!

“Variable - too little attention to the details”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

4 of us went on a Friday evening in August. As Wishaw is hardly the crime capital of Europe, and The Cock Inn is NOT cheap, then I am at a loss as to why the place needs grumpy and unwelcoming door men - so not a great start. We're 4 sober grown ups with nice manners by the way in case you were wondering!

Of the 4 of us - 3 were delighted with their food - I chose the chargrilled peri peri chicken - dreadful! Worse than a supermarket ready meal and easily the simplest thing on the menu to cook, so no excuses there! Plus under-cooked fries...Had I not been entertaining clients I would have sent the whole lot back.

Service slow and it wasn't heaving so not sure why, BUT apart from that the atmosphere was good and 75% of the food excellent - so I would go again and give them another chance, though at these prices they should be getting the basics right!

...They do sometimes act as if they are doing you a favour by allowing you to book and eat there too, so a few front of house issues!

“Greatly improved - food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

A very good lunch. The food was of good quality, well presented and great service from Tara.

Having been disappointed in the past, it was a pleasant surprise to see things had improved since my last visit. Would definitely go back!

“GOOD BUT CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD LIMIT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

At a family meal, staff friendly. But shocked at the price of drinks at the bar.
Good food, good choice, good decor . I would go back but only for a special occasion. Had a problem with drinks service at the table with orders being mixed up.
