I used to go in the Bulls Head a lot during the 70s when I worked at Newtown so it was good to see the picture of it.

Hi wales,

my personal recollections of the Bulls Head are two fold, I remember getting pie eyed in there Christmas time of 63 when we spent our dinner hour in there before the Christmas break when I worked at J.A.Ryley on Newtown Row.

My second memory is of the mid sixties when I used to ride shotgun on valuable loads of scrap that we used to run to (copper during the Rhodesia crisis)J Broadhurst in Prichett St. We always called into the Bull for Dinner a pint of shandy and one of the delicious sandwitches that you could always get from there. I have never seen so many bagged sandwiches waiting to be sold.  There must have been hundreds stacked up, and by the end of the dinner time session they were all gone.
