Great range of the Thwaites Ales plus sone local brews as well. The Fighting Cocks Pale Ale is def worth a try. Not tried the food yet (young dogs) but looks really good and the menu, while basic, provides a great selection of favourites. BTW dogs are made very welcome INSIDE, therefore a great alternative to other places. Hosts Tony... More

On our visit we wasn't made to feel welcome at all . The MAN behind the desk pointed to our accommodation and said excuse me for not showing you to your room just that I'm busy but if any problems get back to me ...not a good start to a weekend break we thought. The room was nice though decorated... More

Visited late Saturday afternoon, great atmosphere with families dogs and football supporters. The barmaid was lovely and very welcoming. We ordered 4 steaks with all the trimmings. The steak was very nice but disappointed with the chips. Frozen chips! What makes a perfect steak is good fat home made chips. The boys had sticky toffee pudding which was lovely. The... More

Visited Ye Old Fighting Cocks 20th Oct with my wife, daughter and her partner with our dog, which was acceptable in the bar area, for an evening meal. We were made to feel welcome and not pressurised at all to order. The menu was quite extensive and the meals were absolutely excellent both quality and quantity wise. We all felt... More

As hoc visit after a day out, the location itself is excellent but that's were it stops. Customer Service is as poor as it gets, will visit the other options from now on ... and we weren't the only disappointed ones either

We booked a meal here as the menu on the internet showed 3 vegetarian main course options. When I booked a few days beforehand I mentioned that we were vegetarians. When we arrived there was only 1 vegetarian main course on the menu which contained an ingredient I am unable eat. However, the manageress was very obliging and adjusted the... More

We looked at the menu and could of been in any pub/ restaurant in the country they are really all becoming very similar in the offering. I can say that what we had to eat satisfied all of us without being exciting or spectacular, it is functional food at an affordable price.

I had the misfortune to dine at this establishment and I have to say the standard and quality of the food was very poor and the owner/managers attitude when a complaint was made was nothing short of intimidating. The meal I chose was a 10" meat feast pizza ,what actually arrived was half a 10" pizza that was obviously a... More
