Old Boots left this review about Fighting Cocks

Older pub modernised in a faux traditional style with tongue & groove, albeit in grey, cream walls with old Durham photos and board floors. Two pulls but only an average Landlord on, otherwise three T-bars of standard kegs. Vestigial walls and varying floor levels show were its old rooms once were and there’s a more secluded rear area mostly for eating. Food led as the heady scent of frying and vinegar will alert you on entering.

The Fighting Cocks is situated on a steep hill just off the main shopping area.
Once inside there is a single room which runs to the rear,the seating is bench seating and and chairs plus normal tables and chairs to the front,the bar is on the left side,there is a small raised area to the rear left which has normal tables and chairs.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Bombardier,this was a decent enough drink.
There was background music playing which was decent.
I was happy enough having a drink in this pub.

The embossed fighting cocks on the exterior wall are this pub’s best feature. Inside is a fairly characterless room, which has seen better days and felt a bit grubby. Just TT Landlord on which in fairness was pretty good. Looks content to trade on the less picky students and never-ending stream of hen parties. Doesn’t even come under the ‘decent for a swift pint before the train’ category.
