Perhaps not a typical experience but our time at the Cock Tavern was awful. We came in late one night and bought a round at last orders, assuming reasonably we'd have enough time to drink them. As soon as we sat down the manager came by and told us (bluntly as if we'd been hanging around for a while) to leave. When we protested that we'd just bough the drinks, he mouthed off at us and then insisted on standing over us with the pub security guard while we sipped awkwardly from our untouched pints. The security guard was meanwhile resting his hand inappropriately on my female companion and when she asked what he was doing, he snapped and snatched the pint out of her hand, spilling it all over the floor of the pub. He then did the same to my other friend. All the while, two people (friends of the management?) were sitting at the bar watching all this while sipping their own drinks - and were still there when we left. Won't be coming back!

This pub is relatively local to me. I go here when I can because the selection of beers is superb. If you like them hoppy, smoky, malty, bitter, dark, light, sour, whatever your fancy they will usually have something to cater to your taste. The pub itself is very simple but its simplicity is not something found in most pubs these days. The wooden furniture and warm setting makes it an ideal hang out spot to enjoy ale during the winter months. During the summer they open up the walls/windows so you get a nice breeze flowing through. Getting half pints is defiantly the way forward. I would highly recommend this pub to anyone visiting or local.

Fantastic proper boozer with a good atmosphere and a great beer selection brewed in the basement. Could do with some soft furnishings though to absorb some of the noise from the chattering-class patrons.

The great thing about this pub, and something so many people seem to forget, is that the bar staff know their product. The ales and beers are amazing in taste and price. I recommend drinking half pints and trying a variety of the ales, they give tasters should you want, and the ambiance is spot on. Pork pies are unreal. Try one , and then tell me you wouldn't be compelled to write a review on Timeout about them!

I live practically next door to the Cock Tavern and its a great pub for a drink. Unfortunately the food is really not up to standard. I've eaten here twice now and both times the orders have been delayed, wrong or just bad. The quality just isn't what you'd expect. When I mentioned into the wait staff, they generally just shrug.
