The Fighting Cocks

The Fighting Cocks is a pub and restaurant in Horton Kirby and well worth a trip! The food is just delicious and the drinks are all very reasonably priced for a pub. Local ales include Harvey’s bitter and Hophead and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc is just £10.95. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the garden and the restaurant area is a perfect and cosy area for eating. Be sure to book as this place is infamous locally and because of this, always very busy.

Toby enjoyed a warming bowl of broccoli and Stilton soup to start with fresh bread.

I had deep fried calamari, it was lovely and light and so moorish. The aioli and sweet chilli sauce complimented the dish really well.

For the main course Toby decided to go for Mrs Manning’s deep filled steak and red wine pie with a Stilton crust. At just £9.25 the pie was great value for money, the portion size was huge! Mrs Manning is a local resident of the village and her varied pies are always a menu favourite.

I went for the famous Friday favourite, fish and chips (more like whale and chips)! The cod was beer battered using Harvey’s bitter and tasted excellent. Pub fish and chips usually always comes up trumps for me and this has to been of my favourites, at £9.95, it was again, fantastic value for money.

The Fighting Cocks is well worth a visit, if you are lucky enough to get some sun when you visit then the beer garden is the perfect place to spend an afternoon and evening with friends.
