It needs an interior refresher (like new carpets and refresh the interior wood trim) and MUST pay attention to details…a restaurant should never run out of bread.
But the food was good and the service was excellent.

The food was good but service was terrible. They weren’t that busy per the hostess, so couldn’t use that as an excuse. Took some time to get our drinks. 2 out of the 3 of us ordered sangria. It was described w/lots of fruit. 1 person got a lime slice & half a strawberry. The other got half a strawberry. Waitress never came back & checked on us during our meal to see how things were or if we needed anything. Flagged her down for the check & it to be divided. Bill comes & not divided. She didn’t hear us but she can’t do it anyway the computer is acting up. Waited & waited for her to come back. Preferred to pay via credit card but since it was taking so long we put our cash together. Didn’t want to just leave large amount of cash on the table, but she never came back. We started to leave -half way across the room she comes running. Probably thought we weren’t paying. We just said money is on the table & left. Won’t be back.

We always loved Cock n Bull but this trip was disappointing. The waitstaff were great, the menu selection was skimpy and what we ordered was lower quality than what we expected in the past. If you are hungry, be sure to order an appetizer and dessert.
We will blame it on the pandemic and will wait a while before trying it again.

Turkey plate- food was both too salty (stuffing, gravy) and undercooked (steamed carrots & broccoli) Server visited 1 time when we received the food but hadn't started eating yet and didn't check back until more than half way into the meal.... as a matter of fact we didn't see ANY wait staff in the dining room for an extended time period to request a visit from out server so we decided to eat what we could. When she finally checked on us, we explained the salt level was too high for us and we could not finish eating. Explanations were given about how the food was "hit or miss" and that she was sorry but it did not go any further than that. At that point we just wanted to pay the bill and leave. We waited much longer than needed to get the check. Immediately gave server the credit card to be processed and she returned later with ANOTHER
copy of our bill saying she would take care of it when we were ready. Questioned her about the credit card we already gave her. Made an excuse about it "being up front" and that she would be right back. Returned quite a bit later with the card run and apologies that she had printed a duplicate bill. This restaurant only had 5 active tables while we were there. Lesson learned- don't waste your time. Eat elsewhere.

Once a great restaurant, I think it is time for me to give up on the Cock 'n Bull.

Even with a reservation, we waited 10 minutes because the hostess couldn't find a clean table. The service overall was erratic. Several things were wrong with our order and the waitress never returned. I had to get up and find another server and even then our server didn't stay at the table long enough for us to explain the issue.

This is the 3rd negative experience in a row. We will have to find a new restaurant for when we visit Peddlers village.

DONNA! My boyfriend and i (we are 60 and 50 years old) had such a great time because of Donna. Her service was great and she is so personable that i would go back if we could sit with her. We actually got to know each other. Discovered that he and she lived in the same neighborhood in South Philly. We had a lot of laughs and good conversation. She is a gem.

The food was outstanding as were the drinks.

The food was very good with a good selection of food choices. The dining room was a bit loud, but only because of 1 party. The waitress was good at suggesting items that were good. Would eat here again.

We love this restaurant for lunch. Service was great and food was very good. I got a salad and added chicken and it cost $20. I think that’s a little much for a lunch salad.

If you like dill pickles, you have got to try the deep-fried version they offer, this appetizer is delicious..not too crunchy and the pickle inside remains soft and moist.
The Tuscan Linguine was a delight for your taste buds. Mixture of peas, corn and pancetta, with shaved cheese and a roasted garlic oil sauce.
My boyfriend had the Mozzarella triangles and The Hart's Burger, both were cooked to perfection.

I did not enjoy it as much as the last time I ate there (6 months ago). I ordered chicken pot pie, it did have chicken but it was skimpy on vegetables. The strawberry jam jar was described as having a layer of pound cake, not so, there about 5 small cubes. It was hard to find them, what a disappointment.

I've been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it greatly but this time, I have to say it disappointed me greatly. The table was dirty, and not set with silverware. We waited at least 20 minutes to place our order while we watched our waitress cleaning other tables. Once the food came (fairly quickly so that's a plus) the filet mignon we ordered medium was dry and overdone, and the vegetables were cold. For a place that's advertising as a steak place, filet mignon is a staple and to have it overdone and almost inedible and still pay $34 is ridiculous.
Overall, the dinner was disappointing. Next time I'll try a different restaurant.

Menu was limited, more like a fast food restaurant, different than their web menu. Service was pathetic, couldn’t even get a water refill. We ordered a bottle of white wine which was plopped on the table with no ice bucket to keep it chilled. I was also embarrassed by the server when she loudly announced my credit card was declined, we asked for the manager and my credit card was just fine. Apparently she did not know how to work the machine. I was never so embarrassed. We will not return.

They still require a face mask for fully IMMUNE patron to cover the three steps between the hostess desk and the table.

I absolutely enjoyed my Filet Steak but I will not be back until these idiotic restrictions are lifted.

At that same time, I will begin recommending Cock 'n Bull to my friends

Food was just okay and the restaurant looked like it needed some upkeep. The carpeting was stained and overall did not make me feel very comfortable.
