Sign for the Cock Inn
Sign for the Cock Inn
An ancient tavern sign in use since the 14th century. Often an indication in the past that cock fighting took place in the yard. In the 17th century the sign may also have advertised the sale of 'cock-ale' which was 'ale mixed with the jelly of minced meat of a boiled cock, besides other ingredients'.
