The food and service were both excellent; however if you are a past patron I must warn you that their menu has been reduced. You will not find their delicious calamari on the new menu or the sumptuous bread pudding. Overall it was still a very good experience!

When entering the building, my family all noticed a musty smell. We considered leaving, but did not know of any other local restaurants, so decided to give it a chance. Waitress was friendly. Drinks were watery and disappointing. The major disappointment was in our meals. I ordered the short ribs, and asked to replace the bread bowl with mashed potatoes. When my meat arrived, there was only about 2 ounces of meat. I need to focus on eating mainly protein, so I am a pretty good judge of portion sizes. Also, the meal was mostly squash, with a few tomatoes, neither of which were even mentioned in the description on the menu. The meat was definitely not short ribs, and appeared to be a simple pot roast. The mashed potatoes has a 1/4 inch hard crust on the top and did not have any taste.
My daughter and her husband ordered the beyond burger , which was supposed to have tomato jelly, and balsamic glaze. Both of these things were missing.
The waitress had the manager, who also was the hostess, come to our table. She said the chef chose to add seasonal vegetables to my dinner, and offered to make a new dinner. I did not want to wait another 30 minutes for a new entree, as I was already suffering from low blood sugar and needed to eat. I also do not enjoy eating alone, and wanted to enjoy a meal with my family. The waitress brought the tomato jelly for the burgers after another 5 minutes had passed and the burgers were no longer hot.
When the bill arrived, we were all shocked to see that there was no adjustment made.
This restaurant offers terrible diner food at over twice the diner price. Avoid if possible

As many times before, we enjoyed a very nice dinner at the Cock 'n Bull. Everyone was very nice and our waiter was the best! The food was very good. I had the Voodoo Noodles and enjoyed it very much. We will definitely return again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
