Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Fighting Cocks

Substantial building with an impressive and finely detailed façade. Slightly worried about whether the interior would be a big let-down, but it retains a number of interesting features around the bar, side lounge area and rear room. Well-lit during daytime too, with large stained-glass windows, but the limited number of steam-punk lanterns suggested a more Gothic feel later in the evening. Variety of furniture to suit most tastes. Four real ales on handpump: Doom Bar, Purity Pure UBU, Good Old Boy from West Berkshire and Wimbledon Common (nice enough, but expensive at £4.20).

What looks like it should be a decent place its actually a rather dull and extremely expensive load of crap. An L-shaped load of rubbish and if you want real ale then there are 4 overpriced handpumps dispensing Doom Bore, Bombardier,.... ah who cares... this place is crap. Go somewhere else.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Fighting Cocks

Agree with Andy this is a good winter pub. We called on a Monday eve and there were a few diners in as well as drinkers. The staff were welcoming and helpful when choosing a beer. There were four ales, we went for Purity UBU and Purity Warlord IPA. Mixed clientele on our visit, has a slightly pretentious edge to the place. One visit was enough.
