Bulls Head 10th Anniversary Treasure Hunt!

What a great day it was! Mild, dry weather, eleven competitive teams and a great pub atmosphere to enjoy, while the ‘marking’ was done by owner Tim!

Thank you to all the teams who turned up and competed so well for the title of Bulls Head Treasure Hunt Champions! Everyone enjoyed the drive out for 50 clues and tried their best to answer some tough tie breaker quiz questions.

This is, of course, the time when the 3p Car Club and the Goodfellows Car Club, both go ‘head to head’ to be treasure Hunt champions!

So how did it unfold?? The ‘wooden spoon’ was shared between, last time’s runners up, Murphy’s Law, in their Porsche 911 and owner Tim’s, daughter’s Tesla team, the ‘Super Chargers’. Clearly no favours done by dad on the day! These teams were only 14 points behind the eventual winners, proving just how close things were.

In third place, winning a £20 Gift Card for the Bulls Head were the ‘Black Cats’ in their Jaguar. In second place were ‘veteran’ Treasure Hunters and twice previous champions, the Scooby Doo’s! They are consistent for sure, finishing third last time out too! They drove off with a £30 gift card.

The winners and 2021 10th anniversary Champions are the Godfathers in their Porsche! A massive well done to Team Godfathers who have won a Porsche for the day and also picked up a Porsche Mug each to celebrate their triumph!

Pub Plates were served up by Head Chef Andy, with our compliments, as a reward to the competing team’s endeavours and we raised a total of £70 for the Mobberley Parish Church too. Thanks to all the competing teams for their kind donations.

Since the very first Bully Treasure Hunt, way back in 2011, the hunt has always been about the rivalry between the 3P (Porsche Pub and Pint) Club and the Good Fellows Car Club and this year the trophy went back the 3P Club, as Porsche finished first on the day.

Thank you to everyone who took part, it was great fun seeing everyone and we look forward to seeing you all in 2022.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Kat from Porsche Chester for putting up the most marvellous prize for the Treasure Hunt. I am sure the winning team will enjoy it.

See you next year!

The ‘Jingle Jumper’ Crew win!

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 30 best winter pubs in Britain, for dog-lovers, walkers, foodies and more…..

 

Saturday 16th November 2019

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.

Halloween Party at the Bully best yet!

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!

Richard does half a marathon before work!!!

RICH THE BULLS HEAD CHEF DE PARTIE

Bulls Head Chef De Partie…. Richard, decided he would enter the Manchester half Marathon on Sunday morning. Richard, who has run a few marathons in his time, actually did the half marathon in his best time and still managed to be in to work at the Bulls Head by 2pm!!

Richard worked in the kitchen with his medal in his pocket! Mary took the photo as Richard stood in our Rugby World Cup Marquee proudly showing off his medal before jogging back to the kitchen to carry on cooking!

Well done Richard you’re a hero!

Our First ‘Tour De Cat’ is a great success

On Sunday 13th October at 8.30am sharp, 18 cyclists braved the weather and took to the country roads that link our six wonderful pubs. They left from the Church Inn in Mobberley after registration.

With all the rain we did think we would have a poor showing, but to get 18 cyclists was amazing! In front of them was a one hundred mile challenge, taking them in to Staffordshire, to our Fitzherbert Arms pub via our Cholmondeley Arms and Three Greyhounds Inn before returning to Mobberley to pick off the Roebck Inn and Bulls Head. With the rain falling it was a gruelling, yet rewarding trip. Every rider had to collect a tiddlywink at each pub until they had the six. A Burger and a pint or three were waiting!!

Everyone completed the Cheshire Cat 6 other than three who missed out the Fitzherbert Arms, but did do the ‘Cheshire 5’ instead. The photos tell the story of how delighted everyone was to have risen to the challenge.

All the riders arrived back safely to the Bulls Head in Mobberley with the exception of three riders who had started at the Fitzherbert Arms and circled round to finish there rather than the Bulls Head.

All enjoyed a drink and a burger ‘on the house’ before they took part in (Cheshire Cat owner) Tim’s cycling ‘Tim-bola’ which raised a few more pounds for our company charity ‘Action Against Hunger’. On the day we raised £315.00 for the charity! Which is a really great result. Despite the weather, the cyclists loved it and most importantly loved our pubs!!

We would like to thank cycling enthusiast Sam, from our bank HSBC, for supporting the event and for supplying the British Cycling Jerseys and books as prizes in the ‘Tim-bola’.

Bigger thanks have to go to Adam from our wine merchants Boutinot. Adam is a very keen cyclist too and made all the arrangements for the event with the help of Tim and the pubs too. Adam also helped with the wines for the ‘Tim-bola’ and cycled the 100 miles for good measure!

This is the first time we have held the ‘Safari’ and it will now be an annual feature on the Cheshire Cat calendar! Thank you to all the cyclists who took part, including Rory who travelled from London to have a go!

See you all next year!

Mobberley Football Club, Umbro and The Bulls Head – success stories

MOBBERLEY Football Club are benefitting from Umbro’s ties to the village as they go from strength to strength.

They are looking ahead to a fresh season all kitted out in new gear – supported by the sportswear company and its birthplace, The Bulls Head, Mobberley. After a hiatus of nearly 40 years, MFC was re-established by a team of enthusiastic footballing parents in 2016.
Starting with just half a dozen children, MFC now boasts three full year groups of players from age five to 11 and have been playing matches in the Cheshire and Timperley District League since 2017.
