The Bull Inn

The first known licensee was William Thorne in 1618. It was owned throughout the 18th century by the Monson family of Broxbournebury, and in the 19th century leased to Christie and Cathrow, the Hoddesdon brewers. It was demolished in 1972, following the building by McMullens’ of a new pub on the site of the site of the old stables and garden.
