Clearly this was once a proper traditional pub, note the cock figure high on the roof pediment, however now we find a rather pretentious suedo-upmarket place with little if anything traditional inside. Purple columns and beams, a few slightly raised areas of seating with scuffed up white floorboards, bookcase wallpaper to one side where I was surprised to see a dartboard. Lots of gaudy framed posters, a railway map, domestic bedroom mirrors are fixed to the ceiling, beyond the bar there is for some reason a clear plastic bubble chair dangling from the ceiling. As well as the dartboard another plus point was a shelf of board games. Seating was predictably mixed with some leather benches in booths but also a high table, centrally located with unnecessary angled rods fixed to adjacent columns. There is a garden to the rear which features more gaudily painted wooden panels.
A Young's house these days, Bitter, Special, London Gold and with Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale reverse clipped. Food served but I didn't check the menus.
This could be a good old fashioned pub but instead the Wells/Youngs machine have done their sadly predictable stuff.

This Grade II listed Victorian pub was originally called The Cock and took most of its trade from market traders from the nearby North End Road market, as well as pulling in plenty of Chelsea fans from nearby Stamford Bridge on match days. The place was then taken over by the Capital Pub Company, who turned it into a brewpub of sorts called The Cock and Hen, producing the same brews as their sister pub, the Florence in Herne Hill. Now owned by Youngs, the pub has been given a smart makeover that has lost whatever character might once have been evident and bears no relation to its market trader's boozer roots. The pub is fairly narrow but extends back a fair way, with the servery along the left hand wall, approximately halfway down. The décor and furnishings are typical of Youngs' pub makeovers from the last five years or so, with lots of smartly upholstered furniture, brash floral pattern wallpapering, pastel shaded colour schemes and the like. The front part of the pub offers a spacious seating area with the majority of options over to the right where some partial screening and pillars help to separate the space from the main bar area. Limited seating runs opposite the servery, with a TV screen here showing Sky Sports News, whilst the bar itself sports a typical, traditional dark wood counter and bar back. Beyond is a slightly raised rear seating area, the highlight of which was a very retro, 1960's bubble chair, suspended by a chain from the ceiling, although no-one was brave enough to try sitting in it on this visit. The rest of the space has a mix of comfy lounge and standard chair seating with a few old pictures dotted around the walls. A board behind the bar listed various upcoming events including an Only Fools and Horses quiz night.
I counted four hand pumps on the bar, but disappointingly they all had reversed pump clips, leaving me to drink Youngs London Stout on keg, which was initially served in a plastic glass following a match at Stamford Bridge, although by the second pint, they were back to serving in proper glasses.
This is a fairly nice pub that sadly lacks the character and ambiance it doubtless had prior to its corporate makeover. Whilst it was a convenient post-match watering hole and offered some fairly friendly service, I couldn't warm to the place and felt, much like its local football club, that it had sold its soul.

Last time I was here it was a brewpub but now a Young,s pub. Four Young,s beers on handpump.Expensive bottle of London ale was good.Liked it better on my last visit.
