The former Bull is now used as a restaurant. The building is a combination of a house built in 1540 and another built early in the 17th century.

It was closed in 1914 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of "excess" alcohol licenses.

In 1830 it's listed in Lambsey.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
