Our country inn

It’s a picture-book pub both inside and out, with hanging baskets and whitewashed walls greeting you on arrival, and our exposed beams and cosy inglenook fireplaces offering warm welcome as you cross the threshold.

Just a short drive from the centre of Maidstone and four miles from Leeds Castle, the Cock Inn is a regular stop-off for walkers taking in the nearby Greensand Way. Our promise of fabulous country cooking attracts visitors from farther afield too, with the pub’s dining room extremely popular for its take on traditional fare.

Selection of drinks

Listed in The Good Beer Guide 2016, The Cock Inn is the perfect place for a relaxing drink too - with Shepherd Neame ales, world wines and a host of other delightful refreshments available at the bar.

Indeed, when it comes to spirits, the Cock Inn seems to have one more than most. On three separate occasions, three different clairvoyants have identified a ghost here named George!

Whether you're searching for the paranormal, the perfect pint or a proper pub lunch after exploring Leeds Castle, the Cock Inn looks forward to welcoming you soon.
