The Old Bull's Head

An old Ware pub

By S Williams

The Old Bull's Head in 1921

Little is known about the pub’s history, but it was first mentioned specifically in Baldock Street in 1744. 


Now known as number 26, it was built in the 16th century and after 1831, a waggonway to the rear was cut through the adjacent building to the south.  Extensive alterations took place in 1986.

  • My Great Auntie Elsie Flay was married to the A.J Flay the Landlord in the late 50’s and 1960s, I remember going to the pub aged 7 or 8 in the mid 60’s and hearing family members talking about a ghost known as Uncle Harry, many had seen a figure through a window wearing a trilby hat and footsteps were heard going up the stairs, when the door was opened no one was there.
