Welcome to the Cock Inn, Luddesdowne

We are a truly traditional English pub ,set in the beautiful Luddesdowne valley.

First opened in 1713, we are a English pub in the true sense of the word basing ourselves around good beer, an convivial atmosphere and friendly converstion.

Free from children and gaming machines, we provide an adult environment with conversation and traditional pub games. - Bar Billiards, Darts, Crib, Dominoes, Shove Ha'penny, Shut the Box -are all here for your enjoyment. If you don't know how to play, there is always someone here to help you.


A pub built in the 1700's was never built with today's catering expectations in mind. Space limitations and meagre facilites mean that we do not offer a menu or formal catering. There are many eating houses around but as a traditional pub we are truly unique

We pride ourselves on the range and quality of our beer offering, reflected in the fact we have been in every CAMRA Good Beer Guide since 1987.

Andrew Turner, the landlord who has owned the pub since 1984 is Member of the Guild of Master Cellarmen, former Fellow of the British Institute of Innkeeping,  Fellow of the Guild Of Master Victuallers,  and has receved numerous awards, including winning seven regional  CAMRA "Pub of the Year" awards as well as been a finalist in a further nine.
