Offering a wide range of wines, ales and cocktails there’s a beverage for every palette and barista quality coffees if you’d prefer something hot.


Your home away from home during your visit to the historic village of Lavenham and here to refresh you throughout the day. We’re located opposite the gothic church, a Grade I listed building, and one of the main attractions in the beautiful village. Visit us and enjoy the comfort of our lounge bar or restaurant, where tea and coffee is available, or try something more indulgent from our well-selected food and drink menus. A beautiful example of a modern styled Suffolk country pub and restaurant, we are placed perfectly at the top of the high street, allowing you to come by at the start, middle or end of your day.


Our team of dedicated chefs pride themselves in the delicious menus available. Prepared from specially selected seasonal ingredients and served fresh every day. View our menus for a flavour of the dishes we produce daily to give you a feel of our unique dining experience. We regularly update our menus with exciting new twists on traditional British cuisine, which is guaranteed to delight you on every visit. Keep an eye on the daily specials board as many of our future dishes will be featured there.


With an extensive drinks menu, we aim to cater for all. From a great selection of non-alcoholic drinks, teas and coffee to a glass of wine from our diverse list of international wines and Champagnes. We offer a large variety of famous brands as well as locally sourced Suffolk ales and spirits for you to enjoy in our bar and restaurant or outside in the large beer gardens.


The Cock Horse Inn is also the perfect choice of venue for your next private party. Whether it’s a family get-together to celebrate a Christening, a 21st or a 40th birthday, you’ll find the perfect space to relax and enjoy yourself.

We can cater for groups as small as ten – or much larger gatherings.  And because we want everything to go brilliantly for you, we’ll be delighted to work with you if you have any special requirements or requests.


We’re also Dog Friendly – We all love our dog friends and Lavenham is a great place to go for country walks and strolls, especially in the summer. We think our four-legged friends should be able to enjoy a day out with us and need a great place to rest, just like us. We’re continuing the long tradition at the Cock Horse by offering a warm welcome to man’s best friend, just like we always have. We’re dog-friendly in our popular bar, so please feel free to bring them along.
