The Cock Pub and Restaurant

47 High Street, HEMINGFORD GREY, Huntingdon, PE28 9BJ

A handsome 17th-century pub on the main street of the charming village of Hemingford Grey, The Cock stands among thatched, timbered and brick cottages. Although it's only a mile from the busy A14, it feels like a world away and it's the ideal place to relax with peaceful views across the willow-bordered Great Ouse. Other than the peaceful location, the detour is well worth taking as the food on offer is excellent - the set lunch menu is a steal. The stylish interior comprises a contemporary bar for drinks only, and a restaurant with bare boards, dark or white-painted beams, wood-burning stoves, and church candles on an eclectic mix of old dining tables. Cooking is modern British, with the occasional foray further afield, and fresh local produce is used in preparing the short, imaginative carte, while daily deliveries of fresh fish dictate the chalkboard menu choice. A typical meal might begin with hazelnut gnocchi with garlic purée, rocket, truffle oil and parmesan; potted rabbit with beetroot chutney and toast; or cod cheek and chorizo risotto with rocket and chilli oil. Follow with a 14oz beef bavette steak with hand-cut chips, fried mushrooms, spinach and blue cheese butter; gurnard with Thai prawn consommé, noodles, pak choi and Thai basil; or aubergine and onion fritters with lentil and spinach dahl, yogurt and coriander; then round off with elderflower and blueberry jelly, honeycomb and white chocolate; or a selection of petits fours. The wine list focuses on the Languedoc-Roussillion region, while longer drinks include a local microbrewery ale such as Great Oakley Wagtail, and Hemingford Grey's own Cromwell cider. A beer festival is held over the mid August weekend.
