PETA CALL FOR YE OLDE FIGHTING COCKS TO CHANGE NAME
PETA HAVE SUGGESTED THAT YE OLDE FIGHTING COCKS SHOULD CHANGE ITS NAME - OUR CUSTOMERS HOWEVER HAVE A DIFFERENT IDEA!
Any of you who found yourself either listening to the radio or watching the news today will more than likely have either seen or heard Christo popping up.
For those of you unsure of where todays media maelstrom started, it was all thanks to PETA.
In a letter sent to the pub this morning, PETA suggest updating its name one more time to Ye Olde Clever Cocks – in recognition of society’s growing compassion for animals and in celebration of intelligent, sensitive chickens.
You can read the full side of PETA's story here.
Firstly, we would just like to go on record and say that we are big fans of the work PETA do, their campaign for banning fur was spot on and something they managed magnificently. However, when it comes to the naming of historic English pubs, on this occasion, we think we might have pass them up on the offer of help!
In all the conversations that we have both been part of and witnessed today, whether it was social media or the radio phone in that we were part of on the JVS show this morning, one thing has stood out and that is the overwhelming support we have from everyone in the area and we assure you that the love is mutual!
Now, this also seems like the perfect time to mention that we do serve some amazing food suitable for vegetarians that will keep everyone happy, some of the produce even comes straight from our very own garden. It is also worth mentioning that we do serve meat… Whilst this is not necessarily in line with PETA’s beliefs, all of the meat we serve, whether it goes into the stocks or on your plate is of the highest possible welfare.
