The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Nayland Cock

Nayland Cock

Closed unknown era

Birch St

grid reference TL 974 343 (approximate location)

The Cock is also listed in Bear Street, so probably stood somewhere near where Bear Street and Birch Street meet. It's understood to have been open in the 17th century.

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.
