Ye Olde Fighting Cocks pub

Exclusive Offer: Free glass of prosecco with each main course

The award-winning Ye Olde Fighting Cocks is located in Verulamium Park – once the third largest Roman town in Britain – in the cathedral city of St Albans.

The pub dates back to 793 AD, which makes it the oldest pub in the UK, and has seen its fair share of historical highs and lows.

It is reputed that Oliver Cromwell slept at the inn for one night during the Civil War of 1642-1651, and that there are tunnels stretching from the beer cellar to the Cathedral just up the hill, which was apparently frequented by the monks of what was then an abbey.

The pub’s most recent history has seen it become an award winner – Visit Herts Tourism Pub of the Year, Best Pub in the St Albans Food and Drink Awards 2016, 2017 and 2018 and CAMRA’s South Herts Pub of the Year 2017. Ye Olde Fighting Cocks now prides itself on its wide selection of real ales with up to 16 available at any one time. It also has an impressive menu of sumptuous dishes inspired by some great British favourites with Ye Olde Fighting Cocks' very own twist: think beer-battered fresh hake, made with locally sourced ale, hand-cut chips and homemade tartar sauce, or pork sausages and mash with Ye Olde Fighting Cocks' very own secret ingredients. Its most popular dish is the buffalo chicken wings with blue cheese dressing.

All of these dishes and many more are prepared by a head chef, who has years’ experience in a Michelin-starred restaurant, so has the highest standards regarding food provenance; so much of its ingredients are locally sourced; and the team are trained to cater for every customer’s needs.

So pop into Ye Olde Fighting Cocks and enjoy your free glass of prosecco with every main meal between 1 and 31 March.
