Maureen and Jack Filby kept the Cock from 1970 until almost the end of the century. During there time it was a cosy and popular, no frills, local boozer. It was then closed refurbished and re-opened as Cockers Brasserie. It has traded, on and off, since then as a bar/eatery under various guises as Cockers Bistro, Lolitas Tapas Bar and Restaurant, Rusty Tape and even reverting to The Cock Inn at one time.
