2 roomed Irish pub that's a bit rough n ready just visited the bar area standard draught. Locals seemed friendly enough.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cock Tavern

A proper old-fashioned sort of place, but both bars are rather tatty and even more run down than on my last visit four years ago. Not many customers, just a few older Irishman who had probably been there all afternoon and - unlike last time - the atmosphere was not exactly friendly. No real ale, so had to do with quick pint of John Smiths (£2.90) before moving swiftly on...

The Cock Tavern is a large back street boozer that serves the local residents of Somers Town. When I visited on Wednesday afternoon last week there was an electric pensioner buggy parked up outside and inside there was a wheelchair with a bag of shopping in it. The handful of regulars were all of retirement age and there was a deathly silence. I paid the barman for half a generic lager from the uninspiring draught selection and shuffled over to a table next to the stage area at the back of the pub. I imagine that this stage area is used when the advertised live music is held. The landlady was stoking the coal fire and thankfully the barman decided to open up the jukebox and put some old disco hits on. I only sat in the right hand side of the pub as that was where everyone else was, but I did look into the left hand side and spotted lots of Celtic memorabilia and a pool table. There are some plasma screens and a projector screen that are used for showing Sky Sports.

I found this pub to be a bit grim and I do not plan to return, but maybe it does liven up when some entertainment is on or the football is aired.
