Hire Our Venue



The modern glass conservatory opens out onto the picturesque gardens and gives a bright and airy atmosphere by day, by night it is transformed into a magically romantic scene as you gaze out over the discreetly lit trees towards the river and the setting sun.

Our four in house chefs can tailor make your menu for you whether you want a buffet or sit down meal. The Fighting Cocks has an unbeatable reputation for excellent quality of food at reasonable prices.

The Riverside Restaurant can cater for 60 sitting guests, 70 for a buffet and easily accommodate 120 guests for an evening reception.

Packed in the lovely garden
Visited yesterday and what a lovely afternoon. Outside was packed but managed to get a table out in the lovely garden and ordered the paella which was fantastic. The atmosphere in this pub is very friendly and welcoming and very clean. Would highly recommend a visit to this pub!
