About The Bull Hotel

Welcome to Number 9 the Market Place - The Bull Hotel; a former 17th century coaching inn, now a Pub & Restaurant with Rooms. In the centre of Olney, overlooking the Market Place, we sit at the heart of the local community; a great spot to watch the world go by.

Whether you are in the mood for a leisurely breakfast, a light bite, late lunch or are looking for a dinner destination, our menus have something for everyone.

Our roots stem from Charlie Wells, so rest assured we take our drinks seriously. Guest cask ales, amazing selections of spirits and cocktails and over 30 wines available by the glass or bottle

Perfect for a romantic getaway, a family break or (thanks to Olney's convenient location to nearby Milton Keynes, Northampton or Bedford) a handy stopover for that business trip.

The Bull has become our favourite eating establishment in Olney after living here for over 30 years! Keep up the good work and keep improving the menu all the time - we love your specials :)

This is the second time our family of nine has visited The Bull and we love it. The service is friendly and attentive. The Bull has a great atmosphere and we like the garden area and car park at the rear. The food is excellent and good value. The drinks are priced reasonably Sue Verallo

My husband's steak was not cooked correctly, he got the wrong sauce and my fishcakes and wilted lettuce was awful. It was bland and needed something like salad and a salsa to pep it up. Waiter pompous. Not going back.

We have come to really rate the food at The Bull. We think it’s the best in Olney. Excellent fish particularly.

Only have two criticisms, one that the pork belly was a bit tough/chewy and our puddings were very late in coming out to the point where we had to ask where they were. Despite this, we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, would highly recommend and we will be back!

Unfortunately service wasn't fab, waiter couldn't answer a couple of questions our table had regarding the menu. Main courses were pretty ok. My husband ordered a crumble with custard which arrived cold, he asked for the custard to be heated before realising that the crumble was also cold. Overall a bit disappointed

Great service & atmosphere, best of all was the food perfectly cooked fish (sea bream and bass. I cannot understand why other restaurants in this small chain do not serve the same quality food!.

Food came out incredibly quickly, having pre ordered. Overall service was impeccable with every need and request answered immediately by one staff member or another. We would recommend to everyone!

Really great service and food for all 16 of our guests. Very accommodating when we had to delay our seating time whilst waiting for a couple of guests. The pre-order process was very easy and our server was aware of our dietary requirements and requests on our arrival. Thank you to everyone who served us and to the chef. We had a great evening and would recommend your restaurant!

4 of our mains were very late, and the others had finished before they arrived. They sides arrived another 5 mins later. Very poor given we had pre ordered. Appreciate late mains were knocked off bill but it was an ushers lunch and we were late for the church and what was suppose to be a celebratory lunch became stressful. Waiters not helpful. Very disappointing.

The food was cold. Because it was so busy and our waitress so flustered I didn’t want to complain and add to her stress. The bread was barely toasted and there was no offer of butter to accompany it.
