We heard about the beer festival over the Bank Holiday weekend and called in for a drink - stayed all afternoon the bands were great and staff very friendly, polite and created a fabulous atmosphere. First time we’d been here and we’ll definitely be back!

You don't get a bad drink at the Cock O' The North. Only selling their own beers and carefully selected lager and ciders this is a great venue. Friendly staff and a roaring fire is a great place to spend with friends and family or...More
