Bucking Fastard left this review about The Cock

A fine old exterior to this Greene King tied house,which has a beer garden reached via the courtyard.The interior has modern decoration but has retained the feel of a front snug,with a fine curved banquette and seating booth providing a discrete area to drink at the front.However the chain vibe is never far away with corporate GK pub grub menus on every table,and a few fruit machines up a step on the way to the bar.The interior is long and thin with high tables opposite the bar and more dining tables beyond.
The four handpumps were offering GK IPA,Abbott and seasonal Grubber Pale,inoffensive but insipid.The ale selection is cock,the pub could be so much better if only the chain vibe could be downplayed.
