About Us

The Old Cock Public House opened on Thursday 9th September 2010, boasting 9 cask ales, globally sourced specialist bottled beers, fine wines and a selection of malt whiskies.

The Pub was originally built in 1755 as two individual cottages, believed to be on a site of around 30 cottages. In the middle of the 20th century, the building was condemned for residential use, and soon became taken up for commercial use. In more recent times, the building has been used as an antiques shop a restaurant, and latterly as the Sugar Street Bistro. The building then fell empty for 3 years before restoration work began. Lee and Linda bought the building, and started work on turning it into a Real Ale pub. The work took 2 years to complete, with Lee heading the building work himself.

The Old Cock is proud to champion local micro breweries, who have struggled to get bar space due to the recent beer tie monopoly (despite demand from a beer thirsty public!), and with 9 hand pumps, they will sit proudly on our bar alongside some of the larger breweries. Alongside this, we also stock a good range of keg and bottled products, such as Real/Farmhouse Cider, Belgian Abbey & Trappist Beers, and other continental and world beers.

Do you know any more history behind the cottages, sugar street, or Otley in general? If so we’d be happy to hear from you, please click here to email the editor.
