This place was my regular about five or six years back; boy, has it changed! The person managing it back then has since moved onto the Black Heart (and so have I, haha). Back then this place was great to drink in, friendly staff, really great service and an awesome selection of tunes on the jukebox.

The Fighting Cock rocks!!! Be sure to say this while you are making the devil sign with your fingers and thrashing your hair forward in a headbanging style.

I am the first to admit it; I am not your typical customer of The Cocks. Its crowd is heavily tattooed, and when I say heavily, I mean hardly anyone has any untouched skin. (And I only have the one little tattoo, it doesn't even count)....more
