Welcome to the
With original beams and fireplaces from the 1600s this former coaching house has an olde-worlde look that blends seamlessly into its village setting close to Worthing. You’d never guess from the pub’s warm welcoming atmosphere that its fascinating 400-year history includes a stint as Goring’s mortuary. The legend of this era when the cellar was used as the town’s main morgue lives on though with the pub said to be haunted by as many as four ghosts. Today The Bulls Head is a community pub with bags of character and is popular with families dog walkers and beach-goers.Just a few thousand people call Goring-by-Sea home and this small seaside village has a friendly laid-back vibe. Picture-postcard beach huts and beachfront cafés line the seafront where the sloping sand-and-pebble beach is a haven for kite surfers and dog walkers. Goring-by-Sea’s claims to fame include inspiring the name of the Lord Goring character in Oscar Wilde’s play ‘An Ideal Husband’ following the literary legend’s stay in the village during the summer of 1893.
