The Cock Inn, Maidstone

The Cock Inn

Country cooking with a twist is a speciality of the pub's 42 seater restaurant using locally sourced ingredients, and there's always a good choice of ales, lagers and an extensive wine list to be enjoyed.

The Cock Inn is rated highly in a number of guides for its great beers, good food and for being pet friendly too. It's a regular stopping point for walkers and dogs taking in the nearby Greensand Way.

Monthly quiz nights, gourmet club tasting evenings in winter months and a variety of traditional pub games help ensure the pub is always worth visiting.

Exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces underline the charm of the pub which is thought to date from 1568, according to the date on the chimney breast found in the attic. At different times, three clairvoyants have identified a ghost named George!

The pub played a supporting role to Leeds Castle in the 1949 dark Ealing comedy film Kind Hearts and Coronets which starred Alec Guinness in eight roles as different members of the d'Ascoyne family.
