  • Public Servant Lifestyle: 'Not every game has so successfully stood the test of time, but if you visit "Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem" in Nottingham - which claims to be England's oldest inn - you may see a game that has been played there for 700 years. Ringing the Bull is played using a plain metal ring fixed to a rope hanging from the ceiling. The aim is to swing the ring so it lands on a bull's horn fixed on the far wall. Similar games were probably played in Roman times.'
