As I walked down High Street looking for the old Half and Half bar I as usual glanced down each side street in case anything unknown to me pub-wise might be lurking. I really couldn't miss this one with its garish blue and red exterior, allegedly due to some bet between the landlord and a regular one of whom clearly being a Crystal Palace supporter.
Well the H&H had headed home to become some sort of night time cocktail venue so I retraced my steps and entered. A kind of reverse C-shape my notes say, maybe a D(?), the bar is central, old Charrington's banded windows, regular seating and a definite feel of a second home for regulars and their many children. The walls had a fair bit of CPFC memorabilia as well as Glasgow Rangers ( the bet perhaps....not dissimilar colours) and an England shirt. A corner contained a dartboard.
Four handpumps, only one on with Courage Best (£1.90) whatever that is nowadays, I chucked a quick half down.
"Interesting" toilets with perhaps the rustiest radiator I have ever seen. An experience but not one to deter others unduly to be fair.

Garish Crystal Palace coloured exterior with quite a plain L shaped interior. 4 real ale taps 2 on.

If I had of known that there were no up-to-date photos of the Bulls head I would have taken a picture of the now blue and red exterior. This newish paint job certainly makes this back street local stand out from the adjacent houses.

The interior is J shaped with a dartboard and a couple of plasma screens for showing live football. There is also a jukebox that was playing some low background music during my visit on Wednesday afternoon. The bar is stocked with standard draught and two of the five hand pumps were unused leaving Greene King IPA, Courage Best and Caledonian’s Over the Bar as the ale options. I didn’t notice any menus but there was a sign on the wall advertising the availability of traditional English and Jamaican food.

I found the guy behind the jump to be very friendly, but I think I’ll leave this place to the locals in future.
