Christmas Day 2019 at the Bulls Head was a record Christmas Day. We were joined by many wanting to become part of a select few! Bulls Head Christmas Jumper Champions! In previous years there have been some interesting winners..from a pet dog to a Mum, Dad and Baby, all in their proud jumpers! This year the Bulls Head looked like a log cabin as people raised a glass to a happy day. Then in walked the Jingle Jumper crew! A family got together and looked like a six a side festive team! (One was missing for the photo!) Steph and Tim chose them as winners for making such an effort! Thank you to everyone who turned out! Happy New Year! Well done the Jingles!

The Bull’s Head, Mobberley, Cheshire
You feel the warmth as soon as you walk through the door of this pretty village pub. Candles glow on the tables, fires crackle, and the staff couldn’t be nicer. It holds a dog show every August and even has doggy beer behind the bar. Under a low-beamed ceiling, seven hand pumps dispense the finest local ales, including Bull’s Head Bitter and the inimitable Mobberley Wobbly.

It was another spooky night at the Bulls Head Halloween party! Steph dressed the pub to an award winning standard! People were phoning in the ask if they could bring the family down to see the pub dressed out to its horrible best! Steph was up half the night getting everything ready for our scary Saturday night party. House band Dave and Howard rocked up to play Halloween hits and many regulars turned up dressed beyond recognition! Dave and Pete our regular fancy dress kings decided to make the most of the foggy night and came as ‘Del and Rodney’ dressed as Batman and Robin at the wrong party! (I am sure everyone remembers that episode of ‘Only Fools and Horses?’) The winner was a rather sinister red haired clown, but a great effort was made by so many that we awarded the best ten, who all got a bottle of wine with the first prize of a £50 gift card and wine going to the Clown! Thank you to Steph once again for the amazing effort she made decking the pub so well. Thanks too, to the Bully team who all dressed up and looked amazing! But the biggest thanks is to all our customers that made such a great effort.
Here’s to next year when Halloween is actually on the Saturday next year!! See you here!
Car Meet 19 (like Car Meet 17) had to be moved because of the weather to Sunday 20th October, as we welcomed over 40 cars at least to another great meet here at the Cholmondeley Arms. The weather wasn’t as forecasted, as showers hampered proceedings somewhat, but the turnout was fantastic for the time of year! Thank you to everyone who ‘rocked up’. It was great to see familiar faces along with some new cars and owners too. The owners gathered inside the Chum, in the main and enjoyed warming coffees and teas and of course the bacon butties.
The Cars of the Day were Mike and his impressive Ford GT 40, pictured, then Colin and his unique VW Beetle who picked up ‘best in class’ and finally Terry in his amazing Amphicar 770 from 1962 which still doubles up as a boat at 7 miles an hour and a car at 70 miles an hour, hence the numbers after the name! This was ‘Cherished car of the day’.
Pictured as well, are all the cars (hope I didn’t miss anyone!) that kindly joined us for the morning. In the end the sun came out and all was well for the final meet of the season.
I just want to say how very grateful we are, for all the amazing support the car events have had this season. We have seen an array of wonderful cars in all aspects across the pubs, dating back to Veterans and Vintages and many Classics plus of course ‘performance’ and ‘cherished cars’ too. We look forward to some very special events next year. See you all next season. Events will kick of next April 2020.
Tim and the teams.
