An absolute gem!

This thatched pub manages to transport visitors back to a time most have long forgotten. In winter both bars are snug and warm; in summer with the doors open, the bar is at one with its rural surroundings. Good conversation is guaranteed "sit and listen, you will soon become involved." Close to Lavenham and the Brett valley, the comfortable accommodation (1 room) is recommended. Food (1-4 & 6-10) is available and live music is offered once a month.

Games include shove ha'penny and pitch penny cut into a scrubbed table. The pub is also CAMROT approved (Campaign for Real Outside Toilets) do not miss it!

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, an inn was recorded in Brent Eleigh as early as 1550; it seems probable this was the Cock, as according to the Listed Buildings Register, the pub's external features date from the 18th century but are probably built onto a much older core.

Hungry walkers and cyclists exploring the area will be pleased to know that landlady Deborah is a great cook and that food is available at all times. Bed and breakfast accommodation in unit at rear of pub. Real cider is generally Castlings Heath Cottage.
