The Cock Hotel  

This is an 18th century coaching inn on a crossroads just outside Telford.

It serves up to four real ales (all Joules).

Taken over in 2018 by Joules, who owned the pub in the last century, and sympathetically restored. There is now a large restaurant and courtyard seating area, including converted stables.

The original bar and wood panelling has been retained and high seating installed around the windows. Everything is modern and open spacing with exposed brick everywhere. The lounge still reminds of a Victorian smoking room with its dark pattered carpet and button back settles/benches. A real fire here.

Food is available Tuesday 5-9pm , Wednesday to Friday 12 noon-3pm/5-9pm, Saturday 12-9pm, Sunday 12-5pm.

There is accommodation here, though not seen on this visit.

Disabled access.

A courtyard 'garden' for summer.

Not far from the station.

A meeting/function room for groups is also available, with buffet service.

A large car park.

Dogs allowed.

How to get there (with thanks to Telford CAMRA): By Train : Walk out of entrance across bottom of cul-de-sac and walk up steep steps on opposite side of road. At top of steps turn left and follow The Parade road past car park on left, with bus station at end, on right. (If desired, take bus for Oakengates or Telford Town Centre from here. 2 to 3 minute journey, depending on traffic conditions. May be quicker to walk at peak hours. Should cost less than a pound). At end of The Parade, cross road and walk left over railway bridge for 100 metres. Take next right into King Street and walk for 6-7 minutes, walking over another railway bridge and pass New College on left hand side near end of road. At end of road, turn left into Mill Bank. Walk for 2-3 minutes, crossing at pedestrian crossing, Wrekin Tap is in the Cock Hotel on the right hand side at the very end of the road.
