Offering Exciting New Events and Full Bar Service to Complement their Fun, Food & Friends Experience

candbullThe Cock & Bull British Pub in Seabrook has a mission listed on their website that states, “It is our Ultimate Goal to provide our patrons/customers with the ‘best service in town.’”  Towards this goal, they listen to ideas and requests, and continue to expand your pub experience to now include cocktails and a whole updated calendar full of monthly and weekly events.  All the original British pub amenities and events remain, it just gets better and better.

Owners Jeanette and David Walker hail from small communities in Australia and England.  “It’s what we know and love, and why we choose to live, work, and raise our kids here in Bay Area Houston,” says Jeanette.  And they carry this warm, friendly, business with a handshake style into the atmosphere at The Cock & Bull, which extends to customers, staff, and other local business owners.  “We wanted to capture the British Pub flair that says, ‘Come in, have fun, eat, drink, and be merry,’” says Jeanette.

As part of their support for the community and events, The Cock & Bull is a proud sponsor of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and will be a drop-off location until December 15th.

What else is new?  The Calendar, with so many new events, so little time.  But this is actually a good thing, as some events sell out due to popularity.  You can craft your schedule to attend the events that call your name.  www.thecockandbullbritishpub.com is updated regularly to keep customers in the know.  Monthly events such as “Wine & Dine 101” which provides wine pairings with delicious tidbits and instructional talks with Wine Pro’s and Wine Vendors; and “Beers & Bites” @ the Bar is a similar event pairing small bites with craft beers and Beer Pro’s/Vendors providing information on what makes the beers taste great.

Live Music featuring local talent continues to be a draw on Friday and Saturday nights, and includes a 70’s & 80’s disco night on first Saturdays.  Mondays are Trivia Night and Happy Hour Menu lasts all night long; and Wednesdays are Open Mic Night (which is supported by Wood ‘N Wind, an acoustic music group).  Happy Hour Menu is also offered for drinks and food on Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6:32 p.m.

So what’s still awesome?  Everything.  The Cock & Bull features an amazing Sunday Brunch from 11:30 until 4 p.m., and is open for regular dining and bar fare until Midnight.  Brunch offerings include a traditional British breakfast, as well as a British carving station, or waffles for a more American taste.

With both British and American Chefs, diners can select meals or small plates to reflect their level of hunger and taste for the moment.  British pies such as shepherd’s, steak & mushroom, and chicken pot pie are favorites, with fish & chips and scotch eggs and bangers & mash too.  Of course there is more, and the True Brit Food Menu evolves.  American selections include hearty steaks to porcini & white truffle ravioli to rosemary grilled chicken breast.  The sides are worth reading all on their own.  A large selection of soups, salads, and sandwiches are available for smaller appetites, although the cauliflower stilton cheese soup sounds like a magical starter for the rib-eye or corned beef & cabbage.

Styled in an eclectic British mode, featuring a dining room, large bar, dart room, and library/coffee lounge, The Cock & Bull offers the perfect environment for fun and great service.  “Every time you come in, whether for dinner, darts or board games, a pint or martini, or a special event, you will see something new and different,” says Jeanette.  Special Events continue such as the New Year’s Eve Party, or your own private Christmas Party, and annual events such as the St. George’s Day Ball, Bond 007 Ball, and more.  You can book special birthday/wedding/anniversary events for parties of 10 to 100 people, request special music, and even set up roulette or black jack stations for your guests.  They will tailor the menu to your design, complete with your own color theme and picture or logo.  Upon request, The Cock & Bull will provide luncheon timed business, board, or special party events.

    Went there with my British husband eexpecting a real British experience. The decor is cutsy but a little souvenire-ish…like they got dibs and dabs from an airport in the UK and decorated with it. I ordered the beef Wellington and it had a “reduced wine sauce” poured over it that was SO SALTY that I couldntveat it. I was charged $35 for the experience! Blah! I asked the waitress to ask the cook if he poured Marmite over my Wellington! The music was live and shabby…Was VERY…..VERY…disappointed.
