Peter Tudge, the ultimate ‘Mein Host’, called this ‘his office’ and many guests remember this convivial pub with fond memories of laughter and fun, of great debates putting the world to rights (and not so fond memories of extreme hangovers)!

It was dubbed the University of Life by a great friend and Peter was indeed a tremendous host, wit and raconteur, able to converse on just about any subject under the sun and long into the night!

Today, it remains a convivial meeting place where people gather, swap stories, make new acquaintances and enjoy the ambiance of a well-established hostelry.

It is our second time in Grahamstown and The Cock House. It is really cozy and nice. Genuine hosipitality. We will be back.
