Does anyone know anything about this pub game called 'ringing the bull' - seen here being played in the King's Head...

Yep I remember playing this at the kings head - hours of fun. I seem to remember that the best way was to make an arc with the ring , but slightly rising. Don't know where it went - maybe when Mr Wimshurst left?

Pretty self explanatory, swing a ring at the hook on the bull's nose, hook it on and you score a point. Quite popular in years gone by. IBS's tab next year I've heard.

Calm down - how long ago was that? I wonder if it's still around somewhere. Would love to get it reinstated...
Monsters - funny! Can they find their way to the King's Head?

When did Graham Wimshurst leave? Probably early - mid 80s. btw John at the Swan is leaving in a years time. He took over in May 1973 I think. IMHO Kings head now looks just like a disco bar, and can't imagine it being reinstated there.

I recently ran into a bit of a dilemma at my shop and thought my experience might be helpful for anyone in a similar situation.... more
