Visited The Cock on a Friday night many years after our last visit. Small pub which was packed and quite noisy but nice atmosphere. Eating area also quite small so if you've made your mind up to eat here, probably best to book. The food - excellent! terrific fish and chips hot, tasty and freshly prepared. Good sized portion too.... More

Really nice food, bar staff playing music, quick service, and probably the best atmosphere of any pub in north Bedfordshire!

A real gem and now a firm favourite. Excellent hosts, home cooked food, local beers eat in or out. Lots of 'special' nights so give them a call on 01234 822834.

Friday night is Fish and Chips night - booking is essential if you want to eat in. We are very fussy about fish and chips and rarely eat them except at the seaside so we were pleasantly surprised to find these were excellent. We visit about once a week usually just for drinks and are always made welcome by the... More

We are so lucky to live in Pavenham. In all my years, I've never met such lovely hosts. The Cock is a village pub that is just the best. John and Linda are tremendous hosts and wherever you come from you will be made welcome.

We're a family run, friendly village pub. We welcome walkers, hikers, bikers, children, dogs and everyone in between. We have run village pubs in the Bedfordshire area previously and have almost 20 years experience in the pub trade. We took over the pub in August 2016 and want to ensure the pub is the focal point of the village where everyone feels welcome. We have a passion for good grub, great fun, real ales, events and live music. Find us on Facebook to keep up to date on all of our events, find out about Breakfast Club and Cheese Night! A full dining menu and redecoration are planned for the near future, so watch this space.
