The Cock Inn is a rural eating place with culinary standards to delight the most discerning palate. We visited this country pub / restaurant for an Easter lunch. With a very full car park we could see that it was popular venue and were concerned that we may be in for a long wait for our lunch. We need not have worried. This establishment know how to cater for large numbers without subjecting them to a prolonged wait. Their menu is compact, (hence they are able to hold down your waiting time) and it is well presented and tasty. The staff are engaging and efficient and altogether make your visit a pleasant experience.
The ambiance varies according to where you have been placed. If you are unfortunate enough to have been seated in what was once part of the old building, just down from the reception desk then it can be rather like eating in a corridor in which the main problem seems to be where to place your coat. There are 9 or 10 pegs at the reception but, with a restaurant that seats over a 100, this is hardly adequate. If you make a reservation (always best) ask to be seated at a table in the conservatory (the new extension). It is sunny and bright and generally feels more spacious with no-one brushing past you all the time.
Make no mistake, the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Just one thing though - why. when this establishment is called the "Cock Inn" does the pub sign outside bear a picture of a horse's head?
