Given as the BREWERS ARMS 1846 / 1850.

Rebuilt 1939.

House closed `For economic reasons ' 1994


The Utensils of Business and Stock-in-trade of the BULL CLOSE BREWERY were offered for sale by auction Friday 27th July 1860 by instructions from the Trustees of Sale of the property of Mr. William Storey, Brewer, Publican and Grocer.
Sale included 11 barrels, 12 half barrels, Puncheon of Waste, six small Casks, Gin, Vinegar, Cordials, Porter, Beer, Grocery, &c., &c.

It would appear that although Mr. Sadd was credited with being licensee from at least 1856, Mr. Storey was still at the house, presumably concentrating on brewing?
