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.

Been over a couple of times now,very disappointed on my last visit.I ordered the same main course as i had last time and was told if i wanted a potato dish it was extra as a side dish kit only came with meat and a pepper salad.

Service was very slow despite the fact we arrived at 12 pm and the restaurant was almost empty. Food was good when it arrived.

Service and the food was amazing! The waiting staff were very friendly and the food exceeded our expectations. We did have some items accidentally added to our bill, so luckily we checked, but this was soon rectified. The only shame is people constantly walking through to get to the outdoor smoking area.

Staff very friendly. Drink order was incorrect but I accepted the mistake. Roast potatoes were obviously old or reheated. Yorkshire puddings obviously not freshly made. The ambiance and cleanliness was very good. (Chef) on this occasion, not highly rated for the price.

The staff were very accommodating as at the last minute our visiting friends announced they had brought their dog so we were quickly moved to a dog friendly space which was great. Unfortunately, the Green Room is classed as a bar area and we were not advised of this so we sat waiting to place out order for 30 minutes until I asked one of the staff and they advised me we had to order at the bar. The food arrived swiftly which was good and was presented nicely but sadly was not up to the standard I was expecting. The roasts we ordered seemed liked they had been cooked at 12 (we were eating at 3pm),lacked gravy and the meat seemed slightly processed, the sausage and mash was ok but the mash again tasted rather like smash. I had the Grilled Hake which was delicious!

This was the first time we sampled the new menu and it was excellent! The steak pie was full of quality beef and the crepe brûlée was exceptional. It never disappoints but they still need to sort out the washroom problems! Stuart
