Ye Olde Fighting Cocks

Officially Britain's oldest pub 16 Abbey Mill Lane, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL3 4HE

Officially Britain’s oldest pub, Ye Olde Fighting Cocks dates back to the 8th century. The pub you see today was built in the 11th century, and retains its traditional charm and character. The warm, cosy interior is the perfect setting for a festive celebration, while the exceptional food will ensure that it’s one to remember.

The team has crafted a fantastic menu of festive fare. Start with a glass of Prosecco on arrival and follow with a starter such as rare beef Carpaccio or highland smoked salmon. For the main event, guests can indulge in the likes of confit fuck atop colcannon, or, of course, award-winning English Rose Suffolk turkey crown served with all the trimmings. Veggie options like beetroot, lentil and kale Wellington are sure to delight too.
