1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014 NEW

Very disappointed that booked this place for 4.30 pm Saturday event. Several days later advised that booking could not be fulfilled despite accepting the booking and that my tastecard discount did not apply despite no restrictions on the card. Clearly a case that this venue decides at last minute to change tactics and make the most out of their prospective... More

Best beer garden in Towcester, and a nice little climbing frame for the kids! Food in the restaurant is always great family friendly and fairly priced.

Have eaten here a few times - lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very good food. The menu isn't huge but still a good selection and their steaks are always a good choice. Decent sized beer garden out the back so plenty of space for kids to run around if out for Sunday lunch.

The atmosphere is relatively pleasant, there are always 2 or 3 men stood at the bar sharing stories, and it sometimes takes a little time to attract the attention of waiters staff. The menu looks promising but I have sent more meals back here than anywhere else I have ever been. Food is frequently undercooked and battered fish is mushi... More

My friend and I met here for my birthday lunch a couple of weeks ago as we couldn't meet any closer to the actual date. I have had mixed and varied experiences here and although its about half way for us both to travel, I did wonder if we had made a mistake. We chose from a set lunch menu... More

Visiting for lunch for the first time, we were welcomed into a bright clean restaurant, (including the tables, menus, cutlery and glasses). We were given the main menu and also the lunch time special offers menu and as we wanted a light 'dinner' for lunch we chose from the several options of 2 main courses for £9.95. My husband really...

We have been eaten at The Bull several times now and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service very good. The week day lunch menu is excellent value. The prices are reasonable and the garden is great for the kids.

third meal here as there has been a change in ownership since the last visit. Good menu choice with lunchtime offers. waitress/bartender was knowledgeable about dishes. Fairly priced if you chose from lunchtime deals menu. virtually empty. Downsides: the table was sticky and I mean it had only ever seen cleaners which caused a build up of residue. hot vinegar...

Phoned at 14:05 to see if they were still serving lunch. The lady was very polite and helpful and told us she would let the chef know we were coming and then directed us in from the main road. Plenty of car parking, lovely beer garden with kids play area too, clean and bright inside. Servings were plentiful and service... More
