Bull & Butcher

Picture source: Shayne Harrison

The Bull & Butcher was situated at 335 Yorktown Road. This pub was demolished c.2016 and replaced by retirement homes.
The Bull and Butcher Public House was situated close to the Rackstraws road junction in Sandhurst. Since it was demolished, a new purpose built care home has been constructed on the site. My memories of this building go back about 30 years when as a family we used to walk across the fields from Blackwater to the pub. The pub, looking at it from the front, consisted of a restaurant to the left, all very dark wood panelling, with a small reception bar. In the middle, accessed by its own doorway, with obscured glass panels on either side, was the Off-Sales area. On the right hand side was the entrance to the saloon bar. One of the pubs best attractions was its garden. Situated behind the building it was gated and child friendly. Grassed with numerous chairs and tables it was ideal for small children because at this time, children were not allowed into public houses. The other feature the garden had was its animals. There were goats, donkeys and rabbits. All were quite friendly, even if the goats tried to bite your hand off whilst feeding them some of the supplied food.
