Cock & Bull English Pub

By E. BrownCock & Bull English Pub

Located on Main and 6th in downtown Covington Kentucky’s MainStrasse Village is the Cock & Bull English Pub. The Pub was founded in 1999 by Craig Johnson who vowed to never have a domestic beer on tap. Known locally for their hard to find selection of English Beers, the Cock & Bull also sports an award winning menu that is worth the visit.

A wide rich wood bar dominates the interior. The atmosphere takes you back to the old world where you can always find good conversation and good drink.

I tried the Fish-and-Chips with a nice glass of Brown Ale. The fish was fresh, light, and crispy — deserving of it’s award status. I have had similar items that left your fingers wet with grease, but not the Cock & Bull’s.

Appetizers
The appetizers included your standard fare for Pub-type foods. The Bavarian Pretzels were fun and the Spring Pinwheels were a surprise.

Sandwiches and Wraps
Again, what you would expect of a pub in the way of sandwiches, although the Cock & Bull Hot Brown looked like a tasty treat:

Hot roasted turkey and ham, sliced tomatoes, atop a grilled English muffin, then blanketed in our tasty beer cheese sauce. Two large strips of bacon complete this hearty “Kentucky” Pub meal — served with Pub Chips or fries.

In addition, they served burgers and crab cakes. However, if you felt you needed a little more to fill you up, the Cock & Bull offered steaks marinated in their secret recipe Jim Beam sauce.

Open 7 days a week this little pub is a nice place to visit if you’re in the greater Cincinnati area. I will definitely be back on my next visit.
