Customers have been asking about the next (bank holiday) event we are going to hold at The Fighting Cocks.  Will it be a Boat or Duck Race, Motaball, Human Table football etc etc?  

No siree partners how about riding on Bully (Our Mechanical Bull)!

Bully will be here on Spring Bank Holiday, Monday 30th May, from 12.30 for the afternoon.
The rules are very simple: we take your name, chosen charity and £3 for a ride (available now behind the bar or on the day) and we will donate £100 to the charity of the person that rides Bully the longest (must also be 8 years and over and not intoxicated).

So come on down to the Fighting Cocks for some Cock & Bull. Once finished Bully will be available from Del Alfredo’s BBQ in the shape of hamburgers as well as many other barbeque favourites.

Thank you as always for supporting our Independent pub. 


The Fighting Cocks Bar area is now fully refurbished. Come in and have a look. Check out the images in our photo gallery.
