It used to be called the Cock &amp; Dragon <small>[https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/1458968929/ photo]</small>, and was part of a chain run by the Orchid Group (see <a href="http://london.randomness.org.uk/wiki.cgi?id=Cock_Inn%2C_EN4_9HU&version=11">earlier version of this page</a> for more details). However, it has now been taken over by [[Category Mitchells And Butlers|Mitchells &amp; Butlers]] and renamed to the Cock Inn.
<b>Note:</b> When we last visited, it was part of a chain run by the [http://www.orchidgroup.co.uk/ Orchid Group]. However, the pubs in chain have mainly now been transferred to other operators. This may also be the case with the Cock &amp; Dragon, and hence some of the information below may be out of date.

It's quite smart inside, with subtle decor in shades of light grey. Large stone tiles cover the floor, giving way to interesting abstract designs further back. Entry is into a bar area with comfortable seating, and the space leads around to the left to more seating; at the very back, through an ornate wooden arch, is the entrance to a restaurant area.
They serve regular pub food at lunchtimes (noon-2:30pm) and Thai food lunchtimes and evenings <small>[http://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/1459086415/sizes/l/ photo of the Thai menu as of September 2007]</small>.

[[Kake]] visited on a Thursday afternoon in November 2017. There were a fair few people in when I arrived around 2:15pm, including a large group just finishing lunch. Music was playing quietly, and there was a good buzz of conversation too. It quietened down as the afternoon went on, until there were just two other customers when I left at 4:45pm.
[[bob]] visited on a Saturday afternoon in September 2010. The real ales available were Woodforde Wherry (&pound;3.40/pint), Greene King IPA, and Young's London Gold. The Wherry was fine.

Two of the four handpumps were clipped, for London Pride and Brains' The Rev James Gold. A pint of lime and soda was &pound;2.
I also tried some food; the pad ped gaprow neau (&pound;6.90) <small>[http://www.flickr.com/photos/rjw1/5001244956/ photo]</small>. This was hot enough even for my palate, and came with a lot of gravy.

They have WiFi via O2, which is free but requires registration.
According to the 2011 Good Beer Guide, they have an extensive rear garden including a covered heated area.
== Line 12 ==
Accessibility: Two steps at the front entrance, one of them quite large. There's a short but steep ramp round the side leading to a fire exit which might be able to be used for step-free entrance with advance notice, but we haven't checked this. Once you're in, there's no steps to the ladies' (but there are two heavy doors and a tight turn), and the cubicle doors open outwards.

According to the Cock Inn website as of November 2017, food is served noon-10pm Mon-Thu, noon-10:30pm Fri-Sat, and noon-9pm Sun.
