Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Old Bulls Head Inn

Reputed to be the oldest inn in town (and it certainly looks the part), but now somewhat hidden away by the various post-war shopping area redevelopments. As noted by others, the attempt by Joule's to recreate a traditional interior doesn't really work as well as it should, but it still makes a big change from the other nearby pubs. Five of six handpumps in use when we visited, and with no guests available I went for the seasonal Royal (£1.65, half)

A spot on review by the Captain (Bucking Fastard) below. It is a Joule's Pub, which had four of their beers on - the Slumbering Monk being decent. Joule's do a good and respectful refurbishment in general, but this one has a white rendered exterior that looks as over restored - rating high on the tweeometer - as its beamed, brick-ranged interior. Service was good and a few locals were in. It wasn't that I disliked it, and I would go back, it is just that I am miserable.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Old Bulls Head Inn

Three in a row, I am also not a great fan of Joules beers. I went for the Slumbering Monk which was in excellent shape, but only one half, was about my limit. We sat in the right hand room which had bench seating and an impressive looking fireplace along with a early example of a wood burning stove, with a large oak beam, which looked original supported by two red brick columns mantle. This is the oldest pub in NuL and dates from the 14th Century.
