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…………

The Perfect Postbox

One of the great things about the Bulls Head is that it sits opposite the village post box which was repainted just a few weeks ago!!!

As you can see from the photo of the main window of our pub there sits the perfect excuse to have a sneaky drink while you do the post!!!

Or even better combine a walk with the dog, posting that important birhtday card with a drink by the fire in our whisky snug!!!

It’s what village life is all about as the song goes….”easy like a Sunday morning”

Ten pence pieces galore after three months terrific sales of Mobberley Wobbly bitter!!!!!

Yes Reverend Ian Blay our ‘man of the froth’ was welcomed back to the Bulls Head to accept £210.00 on behalf of Mobberley Church.

This donation came after three months of us collecting 10p for every pint of Mobberley Wobbly Ale sold…..2100 pints have been enjoyed since we opened at the end of May 2010.

Rumour has it that Mobberley Wobbly Ale has aphrodisiac qualities!!!! So the 10p is a form of penance we pay for the possible sins that follow a pint or two. The money raised helps the St Wilfrids church in our village and we are proud to do so.

Even with the success of Mobberley Wobbly Ale, Bulls Head bitter our other house ale brewed for us by Weetwood is our best seller We look forward to serving even more this Autumn as we look to try and donate even more to our village church.

 

 

Powers To the People!!!

After being open 12 weeks now at the Bulls Head, Shane and Tim have been trying their best to complete the Irish whiskey collection behind the Bulls Head bar with a bottle of Powers Irish whisky!!! However no one in England could supply it to us so on a trip to Donegal Tim and Mary picked up a bottle for the shelf!!

Tim is pictured outside their favourite Irish pub ‘The Glen Bar’ in the village of Glen by the coast in Northern Donegal. Also on the trip log baskets have been acquired for the three fires in the Bulls Head from a local basket weaver situated near the coastal town of Dunfanaghy.

So a whiskey by the fire?? This autumn the Bulls Head will be the place to be.

AFTER BEING OPEN 12 WEEKS WE SERVE OUR 1000TH (YES ONE THOUSAND!!!!) FISH AND CHIPS!!!!

Alex Byars pictured couldn’t believe his luck when he visited on Sunday. He became the 1000th customer since we opened only 12 weeks ago to order fish and chips from our menu.

Our Fish and chips is a top favourite with customers and Alex (pictured enjoying his in our garden!) got the fish and chips on the house!!!

Our now legendary Steak and Ale pie will be the next dish to cross the 1000 mark so pie fans may be lucky when they order the dish in the next few weeks as we will be celebrating in the same way.

A big thanks to Alex for posing for the photo for our news page and well done!!

Giant courgette looking forward to Sunday lunch!!!

In our kitchen garden we have managed to grow a somewhat large courgette!!!!

Anyone who has enjoyed the ‘Sharing Pub Plate’ at the Bulls Head will know the size of the plate, well as you can see we have put this plate under the courgette as it grows in our garden to show how well it has grown.

Lloyd our Head chef will be picking it this week to make a nice ratatouille for Sunday lunch this bank holiday weekend!!

Dave and Steve call in on the way to John O’Groats!!

Cycling from Lands End to Jon O’Groats for charity is a tough call but not so tough if you have the Bulls Head on the way!!!

David and Steve called in to top up the protein (two of our famous Burgers) prior to much needed sleep before the next day ahead!!

We wish them well on their journey and there are two burgers with your names on if you complete the journey!!

Good Luck from all at the Bulls Head!!
