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.

Staff very welcoming and helpful. We had a gluten free friend and they were so good checking everything with her. The food was very good and not too much of it. We enjoyed every course and were looked after amazingly well but not rushed off the table

A bit slow. Some dreadfully uncomfortable chairs. We changed two hard wooden chairs for padded chairs. Otherwise a pleasant evening out.

Enjoyed our second meal at the Bull, wouldn't necessarily choose the chicken burger again as it was a little dry as was the Asian slaw which I think may have been pre prepared, but otherwise very enjoyable .

Friendly helpful staff. Your meat pies are not of the lovely standard they used to be, we were disappointed with them, meat different and quite dry.

Amazing looking place, nice menu and great food, there was a buzz in the air but the service was appalling. They forgot our drinks order 3 times and it took over an hour between starter and main course. Such a shame as it would put me off going back.

We had a delicious meal at The Bull yesterday. Even though it was super busy due to it being the Dickens Christmas Fayre, the staff were friendly and helpful as always and the food was great! It had a great buzz about the place and it seemed everyone else was having a great time too! We’ll be back ;-)

Understaffed which resulted in our below average level of service. Great atmosphere. Will visit again to give benefit of doubt

We arrived on time and were told by a very rude waitress that we could only have the table until 8:15pm - despite the fact that we were on time, she instilled a of panic into us. Not a good way to start a relaxing meal! I understand that you need to turn tables but please don’t make your guests feel anxious before they even sit down. It was busy but the starters arrived on time and were nice. The main courses however, not so much. Tough cold steak, cold chips and mediocre sides - not very impressive. A very long wait then ensued for puddings, which were nice thank goodness or we would have written the whole experience off totally. The overly-familiar male waiter didn’t help, nor did the fact that the music was so loud all the guests had to shout to hear each other which meant nobody in the restaurant could actually hear what anybody was saying to anyone. Overall a disappointing experience and I won’t hurry back - If it’s this bad 3 weeks before Christmas, I pity the poor diners who have booked to come nearer the big day.

A bit of a wait for our table and then for food but it was busy and that shows everyone agrees with me that it’s a great place to eat 👍
