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.

Customer service was very good, food was delicious, will recommend to friends and we will visit again. Only negative was that it was quite noisy where we were seated, next to tha pass.

Our main was the highlight of the evening. Wasn’t too impressed with the brownie and the raspberry ice cream it came with. We had asked for ice cream but weren’t given any flavoured options. Personally with a brownie I would have vanilla as the raspberry was overpowering. Service was poor, first the waitress had forgotten a drink and towards the end of the evening when wanting the bill, she forgot about it 20mins after asking for it. Then we waited to pay and she went outside with another member of staff to chat. In the end, we were fed up of waiting and went to the entrance area to pay. I understand you guys are busy, especially over the weekend, but going out to gossip with a friend where we can see instead of finishing the service doesn’t seem professional.

We came for dinner last night to celebrate my Mum’s birthday, it a great half way point for our family. This is our 2nd visit and it didn’t disappoint. Staff were excellent and food was delicious.

We came in for a family dinner. 2 of the 4 meals had to be sent back. The burger was initially pea sized, the waiter couldn’t believe the size and changed it. When it was returned it was dry to the point of inedible. The salad was requested as not dressing’. It arrived with dressing. This was sent back. When it arrived there was still dressing present. This is not a cheap place to eat, which makes these fundamental errors more difficult to swallow. The children’s pudding menu have ice cream, or 2 alternatives - both of which are nut based. Our children don’t eat nuts. There was also a covert feeling we were being rushed as we had booked an early table. Second visit on the trot where we have been disappointed. We won’t be returning.

The outside of the Hotel looks quite shabby and in need of painting and cleaning, and there were cigarette butts littering the entrance which looked quite tacky. But the inside is really decorated tastefully, staff really warm and friendly and helpful, and generous portions and good value. Definitely would come again.

Excellent food, good atmosphere and friendly attentive staff. Particularly pleased that they now include the meat pie on the Sunday lunch time menu. Brilliant take on a traditional pie, loads of tasty meat filling in a very nice short crust pastry. See you again soon
