We were seated quickly, great table service and the veggie roast (butternut wellington) was really tasty. Really big portions and flavoursome vegetarian gravy (makes a change..!)

We used to go to the Cock when we lived in St Albans but moved 5 years ago. Went back on Saturday and it was just as remembered. Wide selection of beers and located right in the centre of town

The cock is a haven for people who like a traditional pub. It is in the centre of the town but feels like a local pub. The beers are good and there is real variety. The food is pretty good particularly the Sunday roasts. Can...More

Dating back to the 16th Century, The Cock Inn remains one of the most popular pubs in St Albans. We are known for our great food, real ales and extensive wine list. In winter we have a roaring log fire whilst in summer we have a fantastic heated garden offering a little oasis of calm in the centre of St Albans.
