A large country pub whose garden with a play area helps to make it a popular venue for families.

New for 2018: Meat-free Tuesdays with a plant-based menu available from 1800-2100.

Parts of the building date from about 1600, though it is recorded as early as 1563.

It was renamed the Kentford 2013/2014, though it retains a picture of a cock on the new sign.
