The Cock is a Samuel Smith’s pub that I haven't visited for over 14 months but that changed when I came in late on a Wednesday afternoon.

It was pretty busy with hardly any seats available but plenty of standing room. Amazing tiled floor throughout and attractive ceiling roses also.

Full range of Sam Smiths ales and lagers on with other choices being available in bottle form. I started off on the Old Brewery Bitter, always a dependable ale and kept me going for most of the evening!

I stayed for several hours with some colleagues and it only got busier and busier.

The Cock has always been a central London favourite of mine but I really don't visit often enough, it really is a cracking pub and is internally stunning.

An absolute must visit for any London ale drinker and historic pub enthusiast.

Sam Smith's seem to be champions of preserving Victorian pubs and good on them for doing so. The Cock is not the most opulent example in their inventory but still worth a look if you like this sort of thing. Many original features are in place including, most noticeably perhaps, the snob screens. A decent pint of Old Brewery Bitter at £2.90 a pint !! Staggeringly acceptable price for any UK city , let alone London.

My 2nd visit to The Cock was about 15 years since my 1st visit!

Came in here yesterday afternoon, the pub was a quarter full with one bar man serving.

Being a Samuel Smith's house their full range was on offer. I opted for a bottle of Organic Chocolate Stout...a great drink but not sure this should have been kept in such a cold fridge.

Original tiled floor by the doors as you enter, wooden bar with privacy screens above some of the pumps.

Decent Central London pub, made better in my opinion by being a Sam Smith's tied house.

Been working in the area for the last three months and have enjoying going to this pub, good value for money and very pleasant staff

One of the better options in a woeful part of London to get a drink, this is of course plagued by tourists and office workers but has a grand Victorian interior and a large bar upstairs to accompany the ground floor one. It'sa Sam Smiths pub so has the benefit of being inexpensive while the ales are pretty much what you expect - Old Brewery and Sovereign are nowt special really but eminently quaffable.
