Almost all of the entrees on the dinner menu were cajun style. This is not what I was looking for and it was not what I was expecting from this restaurant. So disappointed in the entrees, I ordered a sandwich instead, which was served with cold french fries.

Fried chicken app with corn bread was delicious. Shrimp and grits app equally scrumptious.

The food did not live up to my expectations. The "bourbon short rib" did not taste like bourbon short rib plus the vegetables and fried chicken was greasy.
The lemon cake in a jar was not fresh. The waiter was told but he did nothing about it...☹!

Haven't been to Peddler's Village in years. It was my Mom's favorite place. The Cock 'n Bull needs to be updated in the inside. It looks the same from back in the late 70's. It's in a great spot in the village.

"Blueberry compote" on a pork chop was actually BBQ sauce. Burger was ordered medium rare, was overcooked. We won't be going back

We took my mother here for her 80th birthday. It was the worst dining experience ever. It took half an hour to get drinks. Food was even slower & not cooked to order. Despite 3 different orders on how to cook the beef, it all came out well done. Very limited menu now so only 1-2 choices if you are vegetarian. Don't waste your time as mcdonald's is quicker & better. 2 of our party went home & ordered pizza.

I usually do not write reviews but this was the worst experience in every aspect!!! The service was poor, the server sent the food back after she did not place the order correctly. The kitchen did not have a cook due to the pandemic and the bathroom was dirty. Don't waste your money and beware.

The charcuterie plate was excellent and presentation was very nice. Crab cakes were good. Rack of ribs were excellent. Filet mignon was way overdone although it was tender. For $35 it should be cooked exactly as requested. I did not complain about it so I don’t know if they would have given me a new one or a credit. We are just not the kind of people to complain. We waited a while before the waiter took our drink order. Our server was very sweet and attentive but just a little confused about if he was supposed to be serving our table. In his defense, he was working a wedding upstairs and was called to the dining room to help out, so at first he was unsure of which tables were his responsibility. But overall it was a pleasant experience.

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on Saturday. Our waitress was Donna. She was very nice and friendly. She would ask us if we needed anything. We would have her again as our waitress.
My daughter took me there for my birthday dinner.

Best Cosmo we ever had. The Bronzino was cooked and seasoned perfectly and had no bones. Delicious. We had the apple pie with ice cream that also was very good.

My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and decided to have dinner here where we had held our wedding reception 20 years earlier. This is our second time dining here in the past 5 years and it was dissappointing both times. On this night, we had a great service team and the manager came by to ask how our experience was going and I said fine. I did this because I was in a huge hurry and didn't have time to get detailed and I also didn't have time to change my order. I ordered the turkey dinner plate and the turkey was dry and flavorless, the pan gravy was decent but there wasn't enough of it to cover the tasteless mashed potatoes nor the revolting stuffing. The vegetables on the plate were good but had no butter or seasoning and were cooked al dente yet still the best thing on the plate. I did however, have a delicious french onion soup to start. My husband had a pasta dish that neither of us can recall the details of but it was pretty bad. I would say go here for a french onion soup and maybe a burger and for a better experience, try Earls which is right down the street.

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.

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.
