The Fighting Cocks Bar & Venue: what do users think?
Nicky Hayward: Great placeI can imagine it being great with a band on
Duncan Wilkinson: Great pub and venue with good beer and good music. What else do you need?
Wolf Shankland: Amazing bar and music venue. Have performed here twice with my band "The Black Bison" and we love it!!! Good beer, good vibes, great music!!!!
Charly A: Pool with mates, great music and friends as well. No disabled access. I think there's a ramp though.
2112jonr: Good small music venue in the heart of Kingston, just a few minutes walk away from the shop, train station and bus station. Gig venue in the rear behind the snooker table. Went to see IST IST here in April 2023, absolutely brilliant !
Simon Papworth: Character
hammond8692: Great venue, go there for gigs fairly often, friendly staff and patrons, and a decent little room out back for live music
Kris Woodward: I recently visited The Fighting Cocks in Kingston with a group of seven friends, hoping to enjoy a fun evening of drinks and pool. However, our experience turned out to be far from enjoyable due to the unjust refusal of service we encountered.Firstly, let me emphasize that none of us were intoxicated. We were simply enjoying ourselves, engaging in friendly banter and laughter around the pool table. It is essential to note that we were not disrupting other patrons, and there were no formal complaints registered against us. We were merely enjoying the lively atmosphere of the venue.Despite our behavior being within acceptable limits, we were shocked when the staff abruptly approached us and claimed that we were being too loud. They cited this as the reason for refusing to serve us any more drinks. The staff's decision seemed arbitrary and unfair, as there were other groups around us engaging in similar levels of conversation and laughter. It felt like we were being singled out and unfairly targeted for reasons unknown to us.Furthermore, the way the staff handled the situation was far from professional. Instead of approaching us politely and discussing the issue, they confronted us in a confrontational and confrontational manner. Their approach made us feel unwelcome and embarrassed in front of other patrons. It was a clear display of poor customer service and lack of professionalism.As paying customers, we expect to be treated with respect and courtesy, especially when we have not violated any established rules or regulations. Unfortunately, The Fighting Cocks failed to provide us with a welcoming and inclusive environment that is expected of a reputable establishment.This incident left a sour taste in our mouths and completely ruined what should have been an enjoyable evening. The staff's refusal to serve us based on arbitrary and inconsistent criteria is not only unjust but also reflects a lack of understanding of customer service and a disregard for customer satisfaction.In light of this experience, I cannot recommend The Fighting Cocks to others. As customers, we deserve to be treated fairly and respectfully, regardless of the activity we are engaged in. The establishment's unreasonable refusal of service based on subjective judgment does not align with the standards of a reputable venue.
ADVENTURE TYKES: Had never stepped foot in here before but without doubt the first choice now when we go back to Kingston with brilliant live bands, friendly staff and drinks flowing we had a blinding night.
Paul Elmore: Went after reverend and the makers. Freindly bar with great music and a lovely outdoor area.
Peregrine Roscorla: Great venue, always a good time here
Dom J. Zhiukas: Good vibes and delicious nachos! Beer is surprisingly good for a dive bar. Highly recommend this spot.
Tracey Blackwell: For personal reasons it meant a great deal to me to visit this excellent hostelry on the night of my Mother's funeral.It did not disappoint. The music, ambience and bar staff were wonderful with a great range of beverages on offer 😊👌🏻
Alex “Al” G: Whisky soaked live music venue with a quirky little soul and a pool table. Food comes from next door if you’re wondering why a tuna melt is on the menu. The Mummy 2 was on the TV and was most enjoyable I must say although the bar staff probably weren’t alive when it came out.
Cycling in the city: Always enjoy the atmosphere here, but £6.50 a pint is a bit steep.
Maxi Repetto: Haven't been there in years. Went in for a quick bite and a beer in the early afternoon. It looks as gorgeous as always and the lad that served me was very kind. Just moved to the neighbourhood, so it will definitely be my local.
WARREN VAN ZYL: Go check out a punk rock show here! Rad place!
Jules Mackenzie: An exciting place to go to a private birthday party!
Slevin Shinigami: This bar is awesome, my first time visiting truly enjoyed it.The music rocked and the staff were cool.The cocktails were delicious 😋
Terry O'Stereo: One of my favourite dive bars. Pool table, killer choons, cheesy (muted) films on't telly, and a use it or lose it gig venue sticky taped to the side. Beer is drinkable to boot!!
Tim Biddiscombe: Superb and friendly alt bar not far from Kingston Town centre. Good selection of beers and spirits, warm and welcoming atmosphere, pool table, and non stop movie screenings make the perfect backdrop.

Jane Taylor: Great location for meeting up with friends, good selection of food and drink
The Bull: Great location. Food not what it used to beRecommended dishes Fish & Chips …More
Emerald Dragon: Great location and good service. Unfortunately, I didn’t think that the beef burger was fresh and the bavette steak was a little overcooked. Staff just keeps changing, unfortunately.
Caroline North: Private dinning in the upper restaurant for a large family gathering. Excellent venue with excellent attentive staff. Chris and his team made us feel very comfortable and provided excellent food and service. We highly recommend this venue.Thank you to the whole teamParking: Local parking is available
Lucy Rodgers: Live nearby and have been going for years. Always take visitors and spend a lot of money there. Today, for the first time, the service was terrible and food mediocre. Portions massively reduced and quality diminished. Took more than an hour to get our food and then it was average pub grub. It used to be high quality every time. What was table service also appears to have become order at the bar. We won't be going back until we hear things have changed. Sad to have to say this, but so disappointed.
Lucie Rouff: Really good food and drinks in a beautifull place with great staff.
Sean Wright: Not a bad pub to be fair and some nice outside space. A pint of Brooklyn lager will set you back £6.10, which is about average. They just need to take more care of the place as there was quite a bit of litter in the garden and plenty of empty glasses and it wasn’t that busy. Some children were running riot in the garden too which was annoying so I drank up and left after one pint. A little more care here and they’ll be onto something. I didn’t eat so can’t comment on the food.
Saeed Yamani: Awesome place, friendly staff and lively atmosphere make this pub very welcoming.
Tim Otway: I held my birthday party at the pub and the team were outstanding throughout. They responded promptly to my dozens of emails beforehand and were really flexible and patient, catering to my needs perfectly. On the day they were really friendly and attentive and the food and service was perfect. The pub is a lovely space both indoors and outdoors - certainly one of the best in the area, and everyone came away saying they hadn't realised there was such a nice pub so close to Kingston station. I wouldn't hesitate to do future events at the pub and am already looking forward to my next visit.
Laura Curtis: Great food, wine and service - would highly recommend
Georgina Harman: Very nice meal good portions
Caitriona O'Driscoll: Loved it!
Howard Fuller: We had a great Sunday lunch in pleasant light surroundings. Attentively served by a great team. The roasts we had were great. Highly recommended!
Rose Hodgson: Hosted us for a painting workshop and for the rest of the evening. The staff were attentive, lovely and really made us feel looked after. We had an amazing day. Thank you!
