E TA left this review about The Cock Horse Inn

As the name suggests, this Victorian village pub is named after the station where a cock horse was added to a brake to assist it up a steep hill, Detling Hill being one such. This pleasant village pub now acts as a local and restaurant, being family friendly and convenient for Pilgrim's Way, the A20 and the A249. The single large L-shaped bar has grown into an extension of the original building, with the rear half laid out for diners, leaving the drinking area a bit cramped but cosy nonetheless. Floors are a mix of carpet and tiles, and the decor is plain. There is a busy social calender which includes poker and quiz nights. There is a strong local atmosphere, yet visitors are welcomed. Two ales on - I had Speckled Hen which was too cold and rather tasteless. A pleasant place to spend time and have a meal, but the beer could be better.
