I really like this pub especially for all this wood and the old style feeling .. The selection itís good with their own brew always on and changing ,many others local ales from London micros and 8 ciders .. The staff is nice and they know the job .. The bar clientele is around 30 years as average , at least in my visits , the prices are quite cheap for London and the pork pie I had was very good ! One of my favourite pub in town !!!!

Man I love the Cock! 8 taps. 8 casks. 8 ciders. About half the beers on are Howling Hops, and the other half are from other London breweries. Small selection of London brewed beers in bottles. Great neighborhood pub feel with a lively atmosphere. Lots of wood: bar, tables, stools, benches. They have the smallest outdoor beer garden youíll ever see. It only fits a small handful of people. The service is usually good and friendly. Bartenders here have great beards which is another plus. Prices are great for London. Highly recommended.

Brilliant brewpub with 5 of their own in cask, 3-4 more cask, 8 keg beers and 8 cask ciders. Theyíve got bottles, bit I did not get that far. Oh, and cheaper than my local. Amazing.

Fine place with some good Howling Hops on cask and keg. Service could be more friendly to outsiders.

A faded old London boozer with a certain messy charm, thereís a decent selection of cask ales and ciders, friendly service and fairly reasonable prices. Visited on a Saturday evening with Jmgreenuk who was very quick to state that he really likes The Cock.

Visited mid afternoon on a Tuesday in September 2013, so unsuprisingly not very busy. A decent pub, with a traditional theme including heritage handpulls. Howling Hops and other London brews were available, plus some decent ciders. Worth a visit.

The major selling point is the beer, and the rest fell short for me. I didnít get a very good first impression when I came in - it seemed a bit smelly and grungy, and I had to persuade my girlfriend that it was worth staying! I went to a few pubs in Hackney on the day and this one certainly had the best selection.

This really was like stepping into a bygone era: original fixtures and fittings and gloomy lighting. Awesome line up of beers and the house brewery ainít too shabby neither. Great stuff.
