The Bull and Butcher, 38 Vale Street, Ruiton.
Located at the junction of Vale street and Duke Street, and would have stood opposite to the Duke William pub (now Upper Gornal Conservative Club site), the address was called 'Park Street'? by the 1871 Census enumerator.
As the name suggests, this was also a butchers shop.
The pub closed in the early part of the 20th Century.
