friends all had fish and chips and gave that the "thumbs up" I chose the Rueben and was very happy - good ratio of corned beef to sauerkraut, nice marble rye, excellent cole slaw. Had a Porter and Stout to go with and was very pleased. We will be back. Service was excellent. I just rarely give 5 stars to... More

We are here last night when in town in business. The menu selection is very limited to burgers and fried fish pretty much. Ok selection of beer.

We came here on a Sunday for some dinner. When we arrived the sign said please seat yourself, but then we were notified that it wasn't seat yourself. Then the waiter was really awkward and told us that the kitchen staff was all new so that we couldn't order food for at least 10 min. The restaurant wasn't packed at... More

The food was delicious. I recommend their award winning fish and chips. The homemade chips were better than fries. Server was good with recommendations. Lots of beer to choose from. Definitely a place we will visit again

The servers at Cock and Bull were tremendous when we showed up with our extended family without a reservation. They immediately opened the back room and mentioned that service could be slow. It wasn't!! The servers were responsive and friendly as they handled our crowd. We had the room to ourselves, and the food was great. I felt so indebted... More

Seems like every time I visit, the food is below standard. Example: unchewable chicken in the chicken club wrap. It is very noisy inside, but the outside is very pleasant. Large selection of craft beer.

Stopped in for lunch after a meeting. The beer selection is overwhelming, so you better know what you like or it can be too much to choose from. Ordered a cheeseburger on a pretzel bun, which I assumed would be a bun, but was a pretzel cut in half. Not the best base for a burger. As such, could not... More

Stopped by to get out of very heavy rain. Glad we did. Excellent service. Loved the fish sandwich. I always thought it was expensive. now I know that it is not. Only draw back was too much soccer on TVs.

Decided to take my puppy out for a walk and went to Htde Park square and stopped at the Cock & Bull because the patio is pet friendly. I had the baked cod with steamed veggie. The cod was delicious and the veggies perfectly steamed. Price was very reasonable, service was great and timely. I can not speak to the... More

My husband and I stopped at the Cock and Bull for a quick lunch while in that area of Cincinnati. We chose to sit outside to enjoy the day and watch all the activity on the square. This place is known for its craft beers in which my hubby partook. :) We both had a salad and split a Corned... More
