Thatched pub close to a large public car-park and opposite the famous medieval town church. Stone floor and beams in bar area. Enclosed garden for families to rear. Disabled toilet.
Currently closed and on the market. The thatch was being renewed when visited in March 2015. Renovation work and re-thatching was complete by May, but the pub was still closed and "to let".
The current pub was built to replace a nearby pub of the same name which was demolished in 1950.
Despite the sign, the pub's name actually refers to a cock horse, which was a strong horse used to pull wagons up a steep hill, such as the one on which the Cock stands.
