About us

The Cock and Bull

The Cock and Bull (a former furniture store and restaurant) was founded by Stephen and Michelle Taylor in 1997. They were introduced to the pub trade in 1990 in Bromley, Kent working for Inn Leisure Group. Returning to Guernsey with their knowledge and experience they established their first traditional pub called The Drunken Duck.

Here they introduced the locals to English Real Ales for the first time on the island and developed a reputation for offering excellent quality ales in a friendly and traditional pub environment.

Following their success at The Drunken Duck and a short break, The Cock and Bull (freehouse) was born. Bigger and better, you are guaranteed to have a memorable and satisfying time here with a selection of regularly changing real ales, Still cider in the Summer, lagers and wines by the glass or bottle.  Champagne or Prosecco is always on ice.  Teas and coffees are also served and a toasted sandwich is available if you are feeling peckish.

The Cock and Bull is popular with the young and old. Every day is a new day, with gossip, stories, music, sport, fun and the occasional drama. Chess and backgammon players can be spotted from time to time.  Third Monday of the month a Classical Music group entertain from 8.00 p.m.   Even known as the creche for husbands when the wife visits Victor Hugo’s house. Drop them off and collect on the way home.

We provide a heated outdoor smoking area, the big screen, BT and Pool table.

Meat Draw – every Friday. Tickets on sale from 5.00 p.m. Win your Sunday roast or summer bbq pack at 6.30 p.m. Leave and collect your winnings on Saturday should you wish to party the whole night long.

Special occasions: We can reserve upstairs for your get-together after work or early evening. Maybe you would like to have a meeting outside of the office! For example on the first Monday of the month a group gather together to draw.  Psychology in the Pub is an event which occurs a few times a year.  We also supply your favourite beer if you have a party at home. Outside catering can be organised should you wish to spend your evening with us, or have a lunchtime office get together. Beer tasting evenings can also be organised or a corporate event.  We are always pleased to discuss any ideas you may have regarding your special occasion.
