The Bulls Head, Tamworth


The Bulls Head is a 200 + years old public house, situated on the old A5, 446 Watling Street, Two Gates, Tamworth,
B77 2HW and is believed to have been visited by Dick Turpin and Royalty when the road was a route between London and the North.

Current Owners/Landlord/Landlady Nicky & Paul Goldingay took over the pub in August 2019 after the previous owners, who Nicky had worked for for 5 years, decided to retire.
After closing for a week for refurbishment they reopened at the beginning of September, having kept the large mural of a Standing Soldier and Spitfires which is on the gable end wall of the pub, and decided to turn the bar into an Appreciation Room dedicated to the Armed Forces.  As staunch supporters of RIDE TO THE WALL they pledged to raise funds for the Charity and held a Ride To The Wall Breakfast and Entertainment Evening on RTTW Day – 5th October 2019 – with all funds raised on the day donated to the Charity.

Wallers were welcomed from across the United Kingdom including a large contingent from the RASC/RCT/RLC AssociationRiders Branch,  who adopted the pub as their “Home” and made Nicky & Paul Honourary Members of the Association. Founder and Chairman of the Riders Branch Andrew Wright donated a specially commissioned helmet airbrushed by Gary Sanders (Gary’s custom airbrush work) to the Pub to be displayed with Regimental Plaques, Flags and Memorabilia including RTTW Memorabilia in the Bar.  Within 6 and a half weeks of opening Nicky, Paul and their customers had raised £1,135.56 which they presented to Martin Dickinson Founder of Ride To The Wall and an RCT Veteran with a pledge to continue supporting the Charity which they have to date.
Many of the pub’s customers are Veterans and on seeing the Memorabilia displayed, donated plaques and items from their own Regiments and branches of the Armed Forces to be displayed in the Bar. As news of the pub’s support of our Armed Forces spread visitors have travelled from far and near to personally hand over treasured heirlooms to be displayed,  reassured and proud to know they will be preserved and cherished on display for all to see in perpetuity and with respect.
