Throwback Thursday: Cock and Hoop Pub, Nottingham

The Cock and Hoop is a a Grade II listed pub in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. A house stood on the site in 1832 but from 1833 it was the County Tavern public house which conveniently had rooms set up so patrons could watch the public hangings taking place on the steps of what was then the County Gaol and is now the National Justice Museum. It became the Cock and Hoop in the early 2000s and is now part of the Lace Market Hotel.

 

Cock and Hoop is probably an old brewer’s term – the cock being the peg that seals the ale barrel and the hoop is the bar of metal holding the barrel together.
