The Cock and Bottle

The Cock & Bottle goes back to at least the 1820’s and in 1920 the Licence was opposed. At a licensing meeting for the Otley Division one Friday afternoon in March 1920, objections were made against several applications for renewal as a result of which the magistrates refused to continue the licenses of The Star Inn and The Cock and Bottle. Supt Blacker objected to the latter’s renewal in view of the character of the neighbourhood, the inadequate accommodation and the undesirability in the interests of the public.

The property is no longer an Inn and now forms part of Bondgate Bakery.
