Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Mildenhall Cock

Mildenhall Cock

Closed before 1882?

30-32 High St

grid reference TL 710 745

The building dates from the 16th century, with many subsequent alterations. It's an old coaching inn (the entrance to the courtyard can be seen in the photo between the current furniture shop and estate agent's), which closed because its business was overtaken by the nearby Bell.

Having examined all available OS maps (back as far as 1882) without finding this pub shown, it seems likely that it closed before that date.

Cock fighting (usually in a pit) was probably a regular feature near here (typically organised on Shrove Tuesday and other holidays), and hence the name was widespread until it was banned in 1795.
