About the Pub

This half-timbered house has a pair of fenced facing steps leading up to the front door, which has a semi-circular canopy over it. Inside there are three smartly presented rooms, decorated in muted grey with interesting artifacts dotted around echoing the history of the area. The original floor plan of the Cock Hotel has been retained, yet with subtle changes here and there to make moving around the pub far easier. A black and white tiled floor runs from the front to rear entrance. At the rear there is a small beer garden with a neat pergola providing shelter alongside a smoking area next to the car park. The food menu has a selection of "Starters and Sides" plus a selection of Flatbreads and Crispy Chicken Wings. However the "Main Attraction" is the pizza menu. The local sourdough bases are hand rolled and stretched and then baked in an imported Italian pizza oven. The idea is to offer "sociable food" which people can share – and it’s available throughout opening hours. There’s plenty more going on. On Wednesdays there’s a Poker League, while the first Thursday of the month is comedy night with eigth to ten comedians, all hosted by Ben Watkins who was on the Edinburgh Fringe. Other Thursdays see a quiz night with a £50 bar tab as the prize. On the last Saturday of the month it’s funk, soul and Motown with DJ Alan Soleman. The Flying Coach is also a sport-free zone – if you want a quiet pint when everywhere else has the latest match on the big screen, here’s where to come.

Historic Interest

Acquired by Frederic Robinson with the purchase of the Hempshaw Brook Brewery of Bell & Co, in June 1949. Converted in May 2015 into one of Robinson's 'Ale Shrine' pubs, somewhat like the town centre Bakers Vaults. With this conversion came a change of name from Cock Hotel to the Flying Coach.
