The Thames was in those days the life-blood of London and of the Pub. The now-fashionable leafy riverside suburb once featured wharves, where barges landed goods for the village. The Bull's Head would have been a favourite port of call for the many thirsty workers. Not surprisingly, when the wharves were closed, the pub began to decline. The building was completely rebuilt in 1845.
‘The Bull’, as it’s known by the locals, had various refurbishments and alterations in the late 19th century and now boasts a large central bar. It became a jazz venue in 1959.
The Bull's Head is an institution both in London and globally. It is loved as much for the fact that it remains a real pub with great beer, as for its’ fantastic Jazz seven nights a week and the fact that you can always watch major sporting events.
