I have not researched this public-house in any detail. However, I thought I would include a photograph, map and the names of a few licensees. Oh, and an old newspaper article. So, better than a blank page but a lot of work needed. In the meantime, there is a lot of information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

Note : this is not a complete list of licensees for this pub. The dates of early licensees are sourced from trade directories, census data, electoral rolls, rate books and newspaper articles. Names taken from trade directories may be slightly inaccurate as there is some slippage from publication dates and the actual movement of people.

"William Brown [52], of Aldridge, was summoned at the Rushall Police Court, on Monday, by Harry Hopkins, landlord of the Bull's Head Inn, Stubber's Green, for using threats and obscene language. Mr T. H. Stanley [Stanley and Jackson], for complainant, said that shortly after the latter took over the licence of the Bull's Head the defendant went to his house and behaved in a very disorderly manner. The same thing happened several times, and in consequence he had to forbid defendant going to the house. This seemed to have rankled in defendant's mind, and seeing complainant some time afterwards he threatened his life and also made use of very disgusting language. Complainant bore out this statement. Defendant, who expressed his regret for what had occurred, was fined 5s and costs for using obscene language, and was bound over to keep the peace."
