The Cock Inn Polstead is a traditional 17th Century Freehouse Country Inn, with Restaurant and Tea Room, in the village of Polstead on the Essex/Suffolk borders. Situated in Dedham Vale, home of Constable Country, the village of Polstead, famous for the "Red Barn Murder", boasts beautiful country walks and cycling routes, chocolate box thatched cottages and houses.

We cater for rambling and walking groups, cyclists, families and dog walkers alike.

We offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere, whether it be a drink at the bar or a delicious home cooked meal in front of the roaring log fire in the winter months or an alfresco lunch or dinner in our lovely garden overlooking the village green.

Our menus and daily specials boards offer fresh home cooked food, using local suppliers and ingredients where possible, to reflect the seasons.

Behind the bar we have a great range of cask ales, international beers and wines from around the globe and a range of soft drinks and children's drinks. In our tea room or bar we offer a range of teas, coffees, cakes of the day, cream teas and, of course, full afternoon teas.

So whether you enjoy a gathering with friends and family for a drink, lunch or dinner or an intimate dinner in our restaurant, The Cock Inn Polstead is a place to come and relax and enjoy our great food and drink.
