Three original rooms and a passage remain in this brick-built Victorian pub. The bar has its original bar back and counter though the latter was shortened by three feet in the late 1980s and shelves were removed from the left third of the bar back to create an opening to the smoke room. Also in this room are a tiled floor, old fixed seating, some half-panelling, three Gaskell & Chambers cast-iron bases and splendid etched windows. The sliding door is differently positioned to the original. In the smoke room, the etched window is the only original item. The quarry-tiled passage has a hatch for service to the large room on the right with its Victorian tiled fireplace and half-panelling plus reupholstered benches. The no-smoking room at the back is a recent accretion. Opens 4pm Mon-Fri.

Victorian brick building with ‘The Game Cock Inn’ picked out in stone on the front and retaining 3 original rooms and a passage. The bar has a Victorian bar back and counter, quart tiled floor, original fixed seating, some half panelling, a baffle, splendid etched ‘Eadies Burton Ales’ and ‘Spirit Vaults’ windows and three Gaskell & Chambers cast-iron tables bases. However, the counter was shortened by three feet in the late 1980s and shelves removed from the left third of the bar back to create a wide opening to the smoke room on the left and the fireplace replaced. The sliding door is in a different position to the original door, which was slightly nearer the entrance and alongside the baffle. The etched ‘Smoke Room’ window is the only original item left in this second room with its disused door as the small bar was taken out in the early 1990s. The quarry tiled passage has a hatch for service to the large room on the right is also quarry-tiled and has a Victorian tiled fireplace, original half-height panelling and reupholstered benches attached.
