The Cock Horse, Tonbridge

The Cock Horse

  • Welcome to our website

    We look forward to seeing you soon

Built in 1502, the Cock Horse takes its name from the heavy horse which used to help drag stagecoaches up a steep hill to the next village.

Its old stables still exist next door to the pub, but are now four cottages. A former coaching inn, the pub features a bar and restaurant area, offering a range of dishes such as sea bass, rib-eye steak and lamb shanks. There is a garden with a lawn and two decked areas, while inside, an inglenook fireplace gives a snug feel.

Parties and other events can be catered for and walkers and well-behaved dogs are made especially welcome. History buffs can study a list tracing the former landlords back to 1511 and ghost-hunters can try to catch a glimpse of the spirit which some say still haunts the pub.
