It's a tossup between this location and the Covington location for my favorite C&B. The food is great at each, both have plenty of outdoor seating, and the tap list is fantastic at both. Parking sucks at both equally as well, so there's that, though I can usually get closer to this location than Covington.

The tap lines are clean, or at least I've never had an issue with any of them, and rotate quite frequently. There's a Pint Night promotion every Thursday, where one beer is featured for the evening with a free glass, with additional pints beyond the first discounted. Occasionally they'll get something in on tap that is rare or one-off, but not all that frequently. The crowd tends to be a little more upscale and a little less dancy than the Covington location, but it also tends to be more crowded most evenings.

Good selection of beers, including limited/rare beers like Bell's Oracle. However, prices can be steep and the hours are inconsistent, especially earlier in the week. Growlers are offered, but stupid expensive. Overall, friendly/knowledgeable staff always willing to provide samples of a good selection of rotating taps

Nice food (as others have mentioned, the fish and chips is darn good), but the real reason to come here is the great 60+ selection of rotating taps, from local to global, including some hard to find stuff (around here anyway) like Three Floyd's. They have a nice Pint Night series, with an impressive list of "buy the beer, keep the glass" promos (I got a Bell's glass not too long ago). Decent outdoor seating at all locations - especially Hyde Park. Otherwise like a sports bar dressed in Britsh Pub trappings.

Visited the location in Hyde Park (they have 3 locations in the area). This area of Cincinnati is very cool. The bar was great. Lots of flat screen, high def tv's. A great selection of beer on tap. The particular night that I visited they had a Bell's Stout night, with about 5 or 6 of their stouts on tap. Normally, they would have had 3Floyds on tap, but had been removed for the Bells.

The food was excellent. Fish and chips were on of the best that I have had. Service was good too, even as they were very busy. Would definitely go back again.

I love this place. It is absolutely my favorite pub/ beer bar/ restaurant in the Cincinnati area.

60 very diverse taps. This place has an outstanding selection. They have plenty of IPAs and lagers as you would expect, but also have a great selection of different drafts. Expect to find multiple strong ales, Belgians, and barleywines. They get new beers on draught each week to allow for lots of seasonal selections. They also have a very good selection of bottles. My friends and I meet up for their pint night each Thursday.

In addition to the great beer list the food here is outstanding as well. The fish and chips are the best I've had in the city. Other standouts include the crabcake burger, rueben, and the Bull's long late nighter.

The Cock and Bull has multiple outdoor patios for the warmer months. Occasionally they have live music as well. The bartenders and waiters are all very friendly.

This is a great place to hang out with friends, have a great dinner, watch some football on the big screens, and drink some outstanding craft beer. If you find yourself in the Hyde Park area of Cincinnati you owe it to yourself to stop in for a pint or five.
