“Fantastic food and service!!”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

What a gem this pub is! Went in as I was passing with my partner last week and was greeted in a very friendly manner by the young lady on the bar, she was very informative and told us had we come yesterday we could of had 'fish and chips' which the locals were very fond of. She said its normally a good idea to book, but it being a quieter night we could have a table. Would have been nice to have a proper menu to read at the table and not had to stand awkwardly in the bar reading it off the wall. Food came swiftly and was absolutly delicious, large portions and fantastic puddings! We were well looked after and will certainly be back!

“Beautifully cooked food”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Fantastic local food, beautifully cooked to order.
The homemade chips were a revelation!
Sadly we didn't have room for pudding.
We visited on a Friday night, and many of the tables were already booked, so you might want to do the same.

“Keep your pies!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Having arrived about 6pm and asked about food, we were told it wasn't available until 7pm. We thought we'd found an ideal place for our monthly get-together with our vintage car club. We were the only people in the pub but weren't greeted. Around 7pm, four people arrived and ordered food. We started looking at the menu, thinking about what to order. Before being able to order, we were told that they hadn't expected us to be staying, that it was going be a busy night and that we wouldn't be able to eat there. We didn't challenge this because, feeling the pub was so unwelcoming and being appalled at the lack of courtesy, we resolved never to return.

We were disappointed to read of the unfortunate experience you had to endure during your visit to The Fighting Cocks in March 2014.

We took over the business in October 2015 and have tried to create a warm and relaxing environment for everyone. Furthermore will always try and accommodate our customers needs and requirements.

We would welcome the opportunity to show you how the pub has changed both cosmetically and in terms of ambience, you would be made very welcome.

For your information we serve food lunchtimes 12:00pm - 2.30pm (ish) and 6.00pm - 8.30pm (ish) Tuesday to Sunday.

Hopefully see you in the future

“Delightful country pub with proper home cooking”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

This is a pub for locals,it is full of character but the decor is certainly not modern or stylish , good selection of local brews but the food is the reason to come here- very reasonably priced and tasty home cooked fare, fantastic selection of fresh veg and hearty puddings. Young waitresses very helpful and charming.
