Cock O'BartonBarton Rd
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Originally a small 17th century wayside inn its name comes from the cock horses that were hired out to provide extra pulling power over the local hills. It is said that Oliver Cromwell took shelter here as the civil war approached Chester. The pub was enlarged and extensively refurbished in 2006 into the contemporary design it is today. There is a spacious open plan lounge dining area with other rooms leading off into the original part of the inn. A large canopy protects the outdoor drinking/eating area. 3 regular beers are served from the Stonehouse and Conwy breweries with another guest beer on usually during the summer. Look out for Funtime Friday every Friday from 4.30pm - 7pm with beer at £2.50 a pint.
