Outstanding Christmas Party
I love Christmas, but the worst part is trying to organise a 'please-all' event for 30+ staff. This year we had our works party at the Fighting Cocks and EVERYONE enjoyed it! They all loved the food (which was outstanding), the disco was great and the staff were really friendly and very festive. Great value, and undoubtedly the best Christmas party we have had. Well done, we will definitely be back. 5 Stars
The Old Git's Christmas Party
As a bunch of ageing tennis players we always have a Christmas do and have been to a lot of places over the years. We came to the Fighting Cocks last year and had such a great time that we came back again this year. And we weren't disappointed!
It just gets better, the service is always very friendly, the food was excellent and we were thoroughly looked after all day. The pub has been improved over the years beyond measure and is now a great place to relax with a good selection of ales, a lovely dining room, and is set in a great location by the river. Thanks Chris and Vanessa, we all had a great day! 5 Stars
Christmas Party Night
My colleagues and I had a fantastic evening last night. The menu was varied with plenty of choice. Most of my group chose Turkey and it was beautifully cooked, tasty and came with a good selection of vegetables. I chose Mrs. Manning's pie which was delicious.
The disco was the only thing I personally was not too keen on because it was too club like with not enough other genres mixed in until the last 15 minutes - but then I am probably too old for club stuff! Everyone seemed to be having a good time and the staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. I would thoroughly recommend this pub in. a general way too as the food is always good and has a lovely garden suitable for families especially in the summer. 5 Stars
Christmas Night Out!
We had our work Christmas meal at the Fighting Cocks this week and we all really enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Whilst I was organising it there were a few changes along the way and it was never a problem for the staff to change things. We all would definitely recommend the Fighting Cocks for a really good night out. Thank you very much from the crowd from Darent Valley Hospital!! X 5 Stars
Great food - we'll be back!
We visited the Fighting Cocks for a Christmas party and had a great night. To be honest, I am always wary of meals on Christmas party nights as they are usually mass catered and the food is usually average. Well how wrong was I?! The food was AMAZING and the service was great too. The service was quick but that was only to allow time to eat and clear away before the disco started. I would really recommend this restaurant and will be back with my family this time - Thank you! 5 Stars
Amazing Food
We had a fantastic Xmas meal at this restaurant, food was amazing and such good value for money. The service was excellent and staff were very helpful and polite. Atmosphere was great and restaurant was spacious. I would definitely return to The Fighting Cocks in Horton Kirby. 5 Stars
Another excellent meal - never been disappointed
Took a Party of 32 Bexara members yesterday for Xmas Lunch and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience of superb food with excellent friendly service in lovely surroundings and even the sun was out in early December ! We will definitely go again! 5 Stars
Christmas celebration
Once again we shared a wonderful Christmas Lunch! Everything was done efficiently from the booking through to paying the bill The food was beautifully presented, especially the meringue 'snowman' and all tasted delicious. We are a group of 'seniors' so opted for the 'senior' meals which were very generous and excellent value. I chose the vegetarian 'wellington' for a change - very tasty. A lovely start to the festive season! 5 Stars
