Town centre landlord sells up – to become a bus driver

Inside Croydon

Another week, and another Croydon pub landlord has decided he’s had enough and is selling up.

The Bull’s Head, just off Croydon High Street. Soon to be under new management

John McFarlane has been the landlord of The Bull’s Head, in the town centre on the corner of Wandle Road and Laud Street, for 16 years.

The pub is an old-fashioned boozer, with a single bar area, and no room for any poncy gastro grub or other such nonsense. It does possess possibly one of the biggest white light Christmas trees stuck on its roof of any pub in Croydon.

McFarlane attracted the attention of the national media in 2013 after he had his pub painted red and blue, the colours of Crystal Palace, when he lost a bet to an Eagles fan and pub regular over the club winning promotion.
