Christo’s bit


Hello all, it is that time of year again already! We are extremely proud of this years Christmas menu, whatever you choose you will not be disappointed.. Make sure you get your bookings in quick though as it promises top be a busy season!






Hello all you lovely people, I can’t believe how quickly time flies, but the time has come again for the great St. Albans and Harpenden Food and Drink Awards. As some of you may well know we are going for a hatrick of victories!! As always your support is greatly appreciated so if you could spare a few minutes to vote for our wonderful pub and all our lovely staff we would really appreciate it…

Hope to see you at the bar soon..


Oh, and did I mention that we now have 8 YES 8 ales on tap for you to try, what better reason could there be to come on down!



Hello again everyone, everything is as busy as always down at Ye Olde Fighting Cocks. Summer is just around the corner and the garden is looking great!

The reason for me finding the time to post on here again is to let you know about our open mic night which happens every single Friday night, we get some of the best local talent turning up week on week. As a teaser take a sneak peak at what you have in store when you come down next!

It’s that time of year to be romantic people! And what better place to spend it than in the beautiful Fighting Cocks! Check out our excellent menu below and make sure you book soon to avoid disappointment….


Hello again you lovely people, first things first, we got visited by the lovely Roger Protz from the The Herts Advertiser who wrote a lovely article about our pub, it means a lot as well coming from the editor of the good beer guide!

We’re now heading into one of the busiest times for the pub, kicking off this weekend with the fireworks in the park! Make sure you pop in to sample some of our delicious grub. Just check out the menu below for an idea of what we have in store for you…

Blimey! I thought that I had news last time I found time to write something on here! Firstly a HUGE THANKS to everyone who took the time to vote for us in this years pub of the year competition. As you might have guessed by my outburst at the top of the page, we won, AGAIN!! That makes it 2 years in a row which is just fantastic.

Anyone who visits the pub will know that its made such a great place by all the staff that work there. If I think about how the pub was when I first came here, just over two years ago, and how it is now it is quite amazing. Thanks in no small part to the amazing staff I have around me, and winning this award really is the icing on the cake!





Did someone say Christmas?? I know that it seems to come around earlier and earlier each year, but hey, you know what Christmas here at the Cocks means?! That’s right, excellent food and a whole new delivery of great seasonal produce.

As you can see from the above we also have a brand new Christmas menu for you to look over, we have really taken our time over this and think there is definitely something there for everyone! We are already taking bookings and can cater for any size party you like so either drop me an email to info±yeoldefightingcocks.co.uk or give the pub a call on 01727 869152

Anyway, thanks for reading, I have to dash, those sprouts wont clean themselves!!

Looking forward to seeing you soon…
