  • Visitor Information

A mixture between a pub and a greasy spoon, the underground Cock Tavern is a cavernous boozer for the carnivorous ravenous. Smithfield Market is on the doorstep and the food served here consists of massive servings of the very best meat money can buy, cooked in a simple but stylish way that brings out the flavour. The full breakfast will fill you up for a week, and the steaks for lunch or dinner are exceptionally good, and huge. This is a basic place, a busy, noisy pub, with no-frills decor, but the food is fantastic and it's a slice of traditional London eating. Very highly recommended. Notes: NO vegetarian choices available. Oh yes, and it's underground plus serves alcohol from 6:30am.
