East Cheshire county council help clear the lane leading to the Bulls Head!!!!

All the team at the Bulls Head would like to thank the gritters for coming down Mill Lane for the first time in many a year to grit the lane to ensure access to the Bulls Head and local houses (and the Roebuck) was easier.

We had phoned the council on Tuesday after a few ‘near misses’ in the snow, We explained that the Bulls Head was somewhat busier than it had been in previous years and that more people worked at the pub and more deliveries came to the pub than ever before. For this reason the lane (all 800 metres of it) needed gritting so our customers too could safely navigate the lane.

The next day the lane was gritted!!! Now that’s what we call service!!! We know that the priority will always be A roads and motorways so we did not expect such prompt service. Anyway thanks for all your help!! Care must still be taken down Mill Lane but as yesterdays picture shows the Lane is reasonably clear so we look forward to seeing you all for a hot game stew by the fire.

British Pub week, Halloween and Guy Fawkes all at the Bulls Head

Well thank you indeed to all our customers who supported the Bulls Head during British Pub week!!!!

Halloween went off with a few howls and screams and the ‘trick’ was to be with us and ‘treat’ yourselves to a great meal or two and this was the case as the weekend was a big success.

Everyone enjoyed our ‘trick or sweet’ competition where customers guessed the sweeties in the jar while the staff ate them as fast as they could…!!! The original number was 121 and the prize was won by our window cleaner Pete….some are shouting ‘fix’ but it is yet to be proved!!!

Sausage week kicked in after Halloween and was a big success and many of you enjoyed fire works later in the week and used the Bulls Head to eat comforting food while keeping warm by the fires after the various local displays!!! We even had an impromptu display ourselves!!

Anyway thank you for supporting the British pub by enjoying the Bulls Head your local village pub!!

Beer and bangers goes with a bang!!!!

Yes ale and sausage week went off very well indeed. Infact over 200 portions of sausages were sold in the week and by popular demand the week was extended for a further 4 days!!!

Wicked Willy, Hot Lips and the full Monty sausages as well as our old grandad sausages proved the most popular over the time Sausage and Ale week ran. The most popular beer was ‘the Bulls Head’ bitter with 5 nines been sold in the week!!! A record for the Bulls Head pub!!!

A Sausage for every occasion!!!!

*Extended until Thursday 11th November due to popular demand*

Monday 1st November – Monday 8th November

Yes at last the date is drawing close…. Sausage and Ale week is coming and we need you our customers to celebrate British Pub week and National Sausage week (IN THE SAME WEEK) with us here at the Bulls Head.

Anyone that can offer you a ‘hot lips’ sausage or a Wicked Willy sausage deserves a visit!!!!

Here at the Bulls Head, ‘local and proud’ we stand before you and offer what we believe to be the true sausage experience as we attempt to be ‘a legend in our own lunchtime’ (and dinner time too for that matter!!)

Read the details on our leaflet and come and enjoy our sausages and local Ales too where we will be unveiling our winning Brewer for our Autumn beer……1812 Overture Ale.

British Pub Week: Saturday 30th October – Saturday 6th November 2010

Who doesn’t love a pub? They are without doubt the finest and most iconic of our great British institutions. No other can match the pub for its historical, cultural and social importance.

We want to protect our pubs, celebrate them and ensure they can continue to thrive. This is the sole aim of British Pub Week.

Here at the Bulls Head we are celebrating our pub and its existence with you our loyal customers by offering Sausage and Ale week!!!

Show your support for the British Pub and enjoy a visit to The Bulls Head we look forward to seeing you!!!

Weetwood Brewery win the ‘Overture’ Competition!!!!

We are pleased to announce that The Weetwood Brewery, near Tarporley, Cheshire have won the right to brew our Autumn Ale ‘1812 Overture’!!! They pipped our very local Tatton Brewery in to second place and Woodlands Brewery from Nantwich were a close third.

It was you our loyal customers that chose the winning beer and now we can reveal for those that tasted the beers at the taste off that Weetwood was number one, Woodlands was number two and Tatton was number three. One claim to fame for the Woodlands beer was that all the ladies voting voted for it!!!

‘1812’ celebrates the date the Bulls Head was founded and is a fruity, hoppy 4.2% abv bitter with a refreshing after taste. I am proud to say ‘1812’ is now on the bar at the Bulls Head so pop in and enjoy our latest house ale and celebrate British Pub Week with us by being ‘local and proud’.

Battle for the Batle.

Following our story regarding Mallorcan wines we are delighted to announce on a recent trip to Mallorca by our owners Tim and Mary, the Mallorcan wine Macia Batle red is now agreed as a regular wine at the Bulls Head.

This smooth red with warming toffee flavours is likely to go on our list this Autumn after ‘fave’ reviews from our customers since the wine was shipped in to sample 6 weeks ago.

As a team we respect the views of our customers and as usual your response has influenced our wine choices. We look forward to seeing you all enjoy this great wine this autumn and winter.

New Gin arrives for the winter..

Here at the Bulls Head we are celebrating the arrival of Brockmans Premium gin which during taste tests with the team was enjoyed by Rachael, Shane and Nick and they don’t even drink gin!!!

If you love gin then come and give Brockmans a try you will not be disappointed see below for details

Brockmans is a beautifully made, intensely smooth gin to be enjoyed into the night. It is deliciously sumptuous with a daring allure. The creators of Brockmans, Kevan, David, Bob, Neil and Matthew had one thing in common and that was an enduring fascination with gin and its range of interesting flavours, tastes and aromas.

Our Pie Week success and now celebrate… British Food Fortnight!!!

Pie week went down extremely well with all our customers and thank you for visiting us.

The favourite pies of the week where 200+ pies were served as main courses were….

Our now legendary Steak and Ale pie still at number one!!!

Followed swiftly by our unique ‘chunky lamb’ shepherds pie, Ham leek and cider pie, our game pie and finally Haddock, smoked mackerel and salmon pie made up the top four best sellers although all pies were appreciated especially our vegetarian pies!!

All our pies are homemade in our kitchen by Lloyd and the team and have been handcrafted with pride.

Watch out for our next pie week from Monday 7th March to Monday 14th March inclusive in recognition of British pie week….a national celebration of a great British favourite.

Our ales that sold quickest during the week were Mobberley Wobbly Ale , Bulls Head Bitter, Tattons Indian Summer Ale and the Dunham Massey ‘Green hop’ beer. Well done to all the ladies who sampled the ale with their favourite pie we are certainly converting the girls!!!

British food fortnight kicked off on Sunday 18th September and there is no better place to celebrate great British dishes than the Bulls Head…………

our haddock, battered in our homemade special recipe Cheshire ale batter with chips, ‘not so’ mushy peas and homemade Tartare Sauce has already sold well over a thousand portions since we opened at the end of May 2010.

As mentioned above our steak and ale pie made with our own Mobberley Wobbly Ale is already deservedly getting acclaim from far and wide.

Our sausage and mash made with Frank’s Cheshire Smokehouse ‘grandad’ sausages with homemade onion gravy and fresh red cabbage and mashed Cheshire potatoes…..

Mouth watering??? Come in and celebrate the best of British at the Bulls Head.

We are about to reach two new records…………. the 1000th pie to be served at the Bulls Head and the 1000th steak meal to be served, both are following ‘fast on the heals’ of the already celebrated serving of our 1000th fish and chips……we have calculated that both these landmarks will be surpassed appropriately in the last week of British food week commencing Sunday 26th September 2010.

So you could be the lucky diner that wins their meal free if you are served the 1000th dish.

We look forward to seeing you as always…………
