The Cock Inn, Headley

 It should be admitted that our visit to the Cock at Headly was not exactly a raging success. This was our first official outside meeting of the year held as usual in mid March, and it was to a new venue. It must be said that the weather was pretty grim and cloudy but that it did not actually rain while there. In the event only four 'classic' cars turned out and a handful of moderns. 

The Cock Inn is run by an ebullient Mother and Daughter team providing wonderful ambiance and fabulous grub. Hence the problem. Not a drinkerís pub, more a gastro pub, - which was not problem this time because most of the people who came wanted to eat and had booked tables. Landlady had also kept some back for us, which was very thoughtful.  Lots of tables and extensive menu.

Swamped in the large two level mostly empty car park were the 1956 Lancia Appia of Will How, 1975 Opel Manta Coupe of Hon Sec Malcolm Bailey, 1984 Jaguar XJS V12 of Chairman Bozi Mohacek, some sort of fast Dagenham Dustbin of Hon Publicity Officer Tony Russell, Tony Tester's Chrysler Cold Rod (well it is open so it must be cold) and 1972 MGB Roadster of Alan Rothwell. Mr and Mrs Chris Cuss came in a modern because it was threatening to rain, as did Roger Bishop and Co who thought they better come in a 4 x 4 just in case. Three other moderns bought three other SVVS couples. All together, 20 SVVS people came. 

The Cock Inn is a lovely place but seems to be very much s Sunday lunchtime eatery with lots of full tables and waiters. It appears mandatory to book a table if intending to eat. Tyre kicking facilities in the car park could not be tried out with any significance because most SVVS Members were eating, also because of the inclement weather and great shortage of SVVS cars and Members. Perhaps better luck next time.
