The venison en croute was sensational, cooked to perfection, the vegetables just right and chips crisp, hot and no sign of any oil. My wife had the scallops that were also outstanding . Service was friendly and efficient and prices sensible. Overall - Excellent!

Once again had a good choice - the crab had made a welcome return in the 'Starter' selection.
Colourful and tasty salds. Sea Bass a shade on the small side! Excellent sweet - warm cherries in a meringue nest with cream.

Took mum for mother’s dey - had a lovely Sunday roast. They gave mum’s a bunch of daffodils, which was a lovely touch. The only lower score was ambience, but that was mainly due to where our table was positioned. Fab food and excellent service

I was rather disappointed that the pie was in fact a casserole with a disc of pastry on it rather than a proper pie. It was also only warm, not hot, although my companions food was hot. My plate wasn't hot. It was very tasty though.
The pot of tea was also not really hot and was stewed as if it had been made before the coffees that my companions had.
I will go again as I have previously had lovely food here and hope this was a one off.

The Sunday roast was excellent, plenty even for a large appetite. The veg were well cooked and nicely presented. I had the cheesecake for dessert which was delicious. We went on a cold day so it was lovely to see an open log fire making it feel very cosy. This is a popular pub so you do need to book to avoid any disappointment.

The food, as always was good however the older waitress did make us feel we were taking our time with our starters. I suspect the main course was ready and sitting under a heater which is not good practice. We prefer to pause between courses and enjoy a relaxed dining experience.
The young lad who was assisting the waitress was polite and helpful

We have been coming to the Cock & Bottle for many years now and the food is consistently excellent. The steak & kidney pudding is a beautiful thing; venison wellington is lovely and this time I tried the chicken curry which was well presented and perfect for lunch. Desserts are also lovely, everything home cooked. Service is fast, friendly and caring. Have been recommending to friends for years and all are very happy.

Second time we have visited the Cock and Bottle. Received a very warm welcome and the quality of the food and level of service was excellent, just as per the prior visit a few years ago. Would definitely recommend it and will be returning again in the future.

Good service, wonderful food, great atmosphere and they even accommodated my being in a wheelchair. The service was good in that the waitress was there when you wanted her but was not too pushy and the food came promptly and was hot - and delicious.

The annual thank you Christmas lunch. I had a heavy cold and had not eaten large meals for a couple of days, but I coped with the large potions - whitebait followed by steak and kidney suet pudding plus a good selection of vegetables. The Christmas pud was light and a nice way to finish off. My colleague started with mushrooms which were excellently presented and very tasty. The lamb shank was sizeable and really very good, as were the vegetables, so she was effusive in her praise. Her meal was completed with a refreshing salted caramel mango sorbet. All in all a really good lunch only spoiled by my miserable cold.
