The Cock Inn

About Us

The Cock Inn was originally called The Cock Horse and dates back to the 17th century when it was a coaching inn and stop off for stage coaches en route to London.


Much of the charm and character has been carefully preserved and the Inn is now a popular destination for walkers in the Chess Valley. Providing snacks or a hearty home cooked meal in our cosy bar area, your four legged companion is welcome to join you for refreshments. Our more formal restaurant is positively oozing charm and character, with its wonky walls and wealth of original exposed timbers.


Families particularly enjoy our vast gardens, as younger guests can be kept amused on our climbing frame and bouncy castle (summer time only).


We are perfectly located in the heart of the Chess Valley, surrounded by open fields and bordered to the south by the River Chess, designated as an area of outstanding beauty. Incredibly, we are also just 2 miles from the nearest tube station and junction 18 of the M25.


Perhaps our amazing location is why Sarratt has been used as a location for so many television and film productions, including Four Weddings and a Funeral at the church opposite, Midsomer Murders, Murder Most Foul (yes, we know that’s a lot of murders!) and The Woman in Black. Author John Le Carre used the village as the fictional location for a spy training school and interrogation centre.


We can’t guarantee you’ll get to see Hugh Grant but we can guarantee a very warm welcome and selection of fabulous refreshments!
