The Bull's HeadThe Bull's Head, or 'The Bull', as it's known by locals, is located in a prominant spot in Barnes, overlooking the River Thames. It was this position which made a perfect stopping off point for the many travellers to and from central London when it was first established in 1684 as a hostelry. The restaurant, Nuay's Thai, now occupies the buildings where the horses for the stagecoaches used to be stabled. The building was completely rebuilt in 1845 and went through various refurbishments in the late 19th century. In 1959 it became a jazz venue, a tradition which continues today with live music every night of the week. The pub has been visited by many of the world's great jazz musicians including Dick Morrissey, Ben Webster Maynard Ferguson, Digby Fairweather, Conti Condoli, Shorty Rogers, and Pepper Adams, nicknamed 'The Knife' for his horn playing. Despite this, The Bull remains a down to earth pub serving real ales, wine by the glass and beer, and major sporting events are shown on the big plasma screens.
