old OS map

Currently (April 2013) closed. Though we understand a potential tenant has shown an interest in reopening the pub. If you hear it's been reopened, please let us know. The Bull was apparently de-licensed in the 1950s; we don't know when it reopened.

The Olde Bull is a mid 16th-17th century building with 18th century additions at the west-end. Known as the Bull hotel, it was once known for bull baiting in the yard of the inn.

When it closed in 1959, the license was transferred to the nearby Spread Eagle.
