What is now known as Sutton High Street was previously a turnpike road from London to Brighton.

Carshalton Road (Cheam Road) was also an important road through Sutton, connecting a chain of old towns between Croydon and Guildford and for this reason was added as a turnpike road. The Cock Hotel was located at the crossroads, on the corner of Carshalton Road and ’Cock Hill’ (now the High Street) and was one of only two coaching inns in Sutton (the other was the Greyhound, further down the High Street). The inns provided a resting and changing place for horses as well as food and drink for passengers en route.

The original Cock Hotel and Cock ’Tap’ were built on the corner shortly after 1755 and remained there until 1896 when the old Cock Tap beer house was demolished and the ’new’ Cock Hotel was built in its place. Both the old and new hotels stood alongside for a brief period, before the old hotel was demolished. The old Tap and the new hotel were both set back from the road, creating a forecourt at the junction and this setback remains today, providing an area of public space, continuing the historic association with both the road layout and former regionally significant uses.
