The Cock Inn was taken over by Kevin late in January 2017 and was shut for a week. The pub is now run run by Kevin along with his partner with the local community spirt being at the forefront of all ideas and events in the pub. We are dedicated to keeping the local pub spirit alive and want each and every customer to feel comfortable an almost like they have not even left home.
On opening, a new kitchen was installed and two new chefs employed.
Paul, our head chef preciously worked in the Malt Shovel in Eynsford so is used to the type of fare we aim to provide and our goal to met your expectations.
He is Backed by another talented chef Andrea who's background was mainly in the Local Authority establishments. Again, she is also keen on the old fashioned idea that you cook all from fresh ingredients that are locally sourced. Her real passion lies in the deserts which she prepares and cooks form scratch with great care and pride. You must taste some of her creation and give us your feedback.
Crissie, on of the managers, was until recently running a local transport company whilst her husband was unwell. Now he is recovered its her time to shine and with many years spent running the Five Bells in Chelsfield she has dedicated to making The Cock the best local place to spend ones spare time.
When we too move the pub we realised that it had a bad reputation for not meeting clients expectations, so If you visited in the past, please delete that from your memory and give us a try for a pint or that meal you have wanted for so long in a local pub.
