For many years now our owners Mary and Tim, when visiting Donegal in Ireland, have popped in to their other favourite pub……the Glen Bar, in the tiny village of Glen. Once named ‘Mary’s of the Glen’ after the famous owner and true raconteur by the same name. Sadly Mary passed away this year and Landlord Aengus with a little help from Glen Bar Restaurant owner Cormac came up with a Gin that celebrated the life of Mary and the 250th year of the famous Glen Bar.
The team from Glen flew over to see everyone at the Bully, and Barry, who hails from Dublin of course as well as Mary who is from Derry, both presented Aengus with a bottle of our most local gin the award winning ‘Spirit Of George’ Gin which is now distilled at the Big Hill Distillery at our sister pub the Church Inn in Mobberley.
It was a great night as the two teams exchanged Gins and a few drinks as well as enjoying a ‘Food Safari’ with starters in the Roebuck Inn, Mains in the Church Inn and puddings and cheese at the Bully.
Big thanks to Aengus for bringing the local Donegal Gin over and here’s to a few more great nights together!
It seems like no more than a week ago that Steve approached our owner Tim with his brain wave of restoring Boys football to the village of Mobberley. Steve had a vision and he and his pals have done exactly what they set out to do and successfully restore boys footie to the village of Mobberley.
Tim didn’t hesitate in agreeing to pay for their kit and with other local firms became the proud sponsors of Mobberley Football Club. Mike Summerbee the famous former Man City footballer opened the club and from then it has gone from strength to strength.
The Bulls Head will always be proud to sponsor the shirts and with in the pub there are some great photos of the old team from back in the seventies and of course the new boys playing for Mobberley with pride!
The Teams play on Saturdays at the playing fields near Ilford’s in the village.
Don’t Forget the Bulls Head this festive season, as our Christmas Brass band will be playing on Christmas Eve outside the pub from around 4pm….. please note this is a change from last year when it was previously around 5-6pm. Mulled wine and Hot Chocolate will be on hand to enjoy as well as festive food and drinks in the pub too.
Please remember Christmas Day too when we open at mid-day until 2.30pm for Drinks and Festive Nibbles. We have our Christmas Jumper competition too…which was won last year by a family affair….Marcus, Lisa and baby Zachary pictured here made a superb effort as you can see. In the past we have also had a pet dog win the competition so anything is possible!! A bottle of Fizz will be presented to the winner by Barry at 1.30pm on the day so get here early!
It was an amazing Halloween bash, with the pub spectacularly decorated by the wonderful Steph. There was some ghostly goings on, as well as some live tunes by the Fantastic Dave and Howard our house band. With All the staff dressed up from an evil Joker, to the Zombie Queen, with probably the scariest of the All, Kieran as MR BLOBBY!!!!!
However it was not just the staff that got into the Halloween spirit of dressing up, with a record number of our amazing customers dressing up for a chance to win a £50 Cheshire Cat voucher. It was a close contest in the end with the Mexican Ghost beating the Headless Horseman to the prize.
This is an event that is growing every year, so much so, we can’t wait for next year’s Halloween scare fest.
