Fighting Cocks

The Fighting Cocks was situated at 26 Main Road and is to be demolished to make way for a housing development.
This pub has now been fully developed into houses. However they have kept a nice 'swinging' pub sign in keeping with the original pub and setting. 
Richard Marmoy (May 2010)
My dad took me to The Fighting Cocks on my ninth birthday. We went to London with my family, and a school friend, the day before but on my actual birthday he took me to this pub because I loved the trampolines that were in the pub garden. It was just him and me. I'm 50 now but I remember that day so clearly. Later that night, in bed, every time I closed my eyes I felt as though I were still bouncing. My dad died two months later. I don't live in the Basingstoke area anymore - although I have family that still do - but it's still so sad to think that this pub is no longer there.
