We are very proud to announce that we have now reached the landmark figure of 1500 different real ales. We have achieved this feat in just three and a half years, since we opened in September 2010. To mark the achievement Elland brewery kindly did a one off brew, which, needless to say went down very well!
We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support. As without you, reaching 1500 different ales in such a short space of time wouldn’t have been possible.
Cheers, and here’s to the next 500 and reaching 2000!
Lee, Linda and all the staff at The Old Cock.

We would like to thank everyone who attended on Monday 14th January to help celebrate selling 100o different cask ales since opening in September 2010. The actual date that we sold the 1000th ale was November 19th and it was Wold Top ‘Anglers Reward’, and congratulations go to those who won on the ‘guess the date competition’.
The event was also run to raise funds for the Candlelighters charity and we are delighted to announce that £421.56 was raised. Thank you to everyone who supported the event and made donations and to the breweries who supplied gifts to be used as prizes on the night.
