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.

Service was really nice. And the place was welcoming and comfortable with the current situation considered. The food was brilliant. Personal preference but I would have liked it to be a bit hotter.

We attended for breakfast on a sunday morning. The service was very slow. The sausages were very poor quality and the bacon just tasted of cooking oil. They also forgot a drink and my breakfast arrived with no beans. When asked how our breakfast was by the young waitress we explained and she showed no interest or apology . An overall poor experience

Have been before and couldn’t fault it. However, unfortunately this time my steak which although it was a ribeye and I expect marbling, was incredibly fatty. I left a lot of it and what I ate was hard going. Also my peppercorn sauce was incredibly salty which I hadn’t expected but I was able to scrape it off so all was not lost. The starter and pudding were delicious and the service excellent so I’m just viewing it as a one off and we will be back!

We had an amazing night it was made all the better by your wonderful staff, particularly Laura. She was so bubbly and full of character she really added a shine to our night. The food was great, sweet potato fries were a bit undercooked and salty, but we were offered a pudding to compensate the rest of the food from starters to main was phenomenal. Will definitely be back, thank you.

Really enjoyed our meal every dish ordered was perfect and there was a great atmosphere in the pub. Social distancing measures were in place and tables were nicely spread out with plenty of hand gels dotted around. We have eaten here a few times now and have not been disappointed. Will definitely be back so if you’re in two minds whether to give it a go don’t hesitate to book a table and highly recommend the belly of pork dish!!

New government rules were in place, mandating face coverings for all employees, but the staff were as friendly as ever. They were keen to ensure the new rules did not spoil our enjoyment; they succeeded. Our food was top notch too.

First time out since Covid-19 restrictions have been in place, and had a really nice evening. The staff were so friendly, and made the evening feel very relaxed, despite the restrictions. Food was amazing as always, will definitely be back. Thank you.

This was our first time at the Bull since it has been refurbished. It was a pleasant experience. The food was delicious and well presented, service was spot on and the Interior was a great improvement from the previous pub. Thanks

The roast dinners are rarely hot. It was resolved but it’s not the first time. I don’t think I will be back on a Sunday for that reason

We had a lovely lunch at The Bull yesterday, sitting out in the sunshine in the back garden. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful and the food very tasty. We were very impressed with our first visit since the big refurb and I'm sure we'll be back.

We had sandwiches. The bread was dry and stale and the sweet potato fries well over cooked. Very expensive for something so poor and we will not be returning.
