The Los Angeles suburb of Santa Monica is sometimes called “Little Britain.” That’s because of the number of British expats living here. The Cock ‘n Bull is the local hangout for the tight knit community of English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh men and women.
Santa Monica has been a magnet for U.K. expats since the early ’60s. Back then, more than 4,000 quit rainy Britain for the sunny skies of Santa Monica. According to a recent Census there are only about 900 British-born people now that call the city home.
The Cock ‘n Bull is close to the Venice border, located in the skateboard and surfing community of Santa Monica’s Ocean Park/Venice neighborhood referred to as Dogtown. We serve traditional Brit comfort food and beers and show English Premier League and European football on our big screen tellys! Come and hang out and get to know our British staff and patrons.
