Cock Tavern

Picture source: Colin Price

The Cock Tavern was situated at 96 High Street. This pub closed on 29th May 2010; a planning application for shops and flats has been submitted.
In a prime position opposite the war memorial, The Cock graced many an old photograph of Chesham, normally with a 'Salter's Ales of Rickmansworth' sign above the guttering, although in the 1970s it was in the Allied Breweries estate. It was small pub whose excellent location never seemed to translate into attracting a large clientele. Very much a working man's pub, it probably suffered more than most when The Last Post opened not 50 yards away, offering cut-price and, to be honest, higher quality beer. Few will mourn but with the usual lack of investment from various owners over the years, it never really stood a chance.
