Farmhouse Hospitality


about us

Farmhouse Hospitality inhabits the space between traditional pubs and complicated cocktail bars. Our establishments, The Flying Cock and The Horny Ram, are fun, welcoming and cozy venues perfect for gathering with friends on any occasion. Owned and operated by Ken McCoy, The Flying Cock and The Horny Ram have bold, memorable names that get people in the door and delicious food, drinks and great service keep them coming back. These playful names are a nod to McCoy’s memories of childhood days spent on his grandparents’ farm in Ireland, where a cast of barnyard characters provided hours of entertainment.


Today, Farmhouse Hospitality invites guests into our establishments to create their own fun-filled memories and enjoy elevated, classic pub fare, approachable cocktails and local beer in lively spaces that are anything but stuffy.

Ken Mccoy, boss
A hospitality-industry veteran of almost two decades, Ken McCoy has owned and operated several Pig n Whistle pubs throughout New York City. While his properties were quite stable and profitable, McCoy longed to do something new and creatively stimulating; he made the bold decision to start Farmhouse Hospitality in January 2016, and from there, The Flying Cock was born. The concept was a runaway neighborhood hit and inspired a brother restaurant, The Horny Ram, which opened in March 2017. McCoy still owns and operates one Pig n Whistle location.
