The Fighting Cocks pub is a hidden treasure, buried deep within the beautiful coastal town of Gosport. The large airy dining room, cosy snug complete with a fireplace and the large garden with a children’s play area means that whether you’re bringing the whole family along, or are visiting for a more intimate dinner, a warm welcome always awaits.

The menu here is the jewel in the pub’s crown; an array of vegan and gluten-free options are available alongside traditional British fare. From the vegan menu, I opted for the falafels with homemade spicy mayonnaise to start and the vegan brownie for my dessert – both were delicious. For my main meal, after much deliberation between the famous Fighting Cocks’ burgers and the pork belly, I settled on the tender pork belly, which was accompanied by creamy mashed potato and smooth gravy. My partner was equally satisfied with his three courses; he chose Thai fishcakes to start, delicately spiced piri piri chicken for his main and tiramisu to finish. The tiramisu was light and boozy and an absolute triumph. With a bar that offers all the usual lager, wine and spirits, as well as two vegan wines and several ciders, there’s something for everyone at this coastal pub. Owners Syb and Bazil made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside, and service throughout the evening was attentive and friendly, so make sure this hidden gem is on your radar.
