We visited the Bull after looking at the tripadvisor reviews as we were looking for somewhere to meet family friends. Thank you previous reviewers for allowing us to find this great place. The food was excellent and all the meals were good. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we loved the decor inside. There is also a good... More

We have been visiting The Bull for years. Its walking distance and its the place to go for a good steak. It is never over full which does mean that it can be lacking in atmosphere. Our last visit was on a Saturday evening. The restaurant could not have been more than half full. The menu never seems to change... More

Went here with friends . neither had been before. Lovely decor and atmosphere. Staff very pleasant. Had run out of a Couple of items but still lots of choice. Lovely food and reasonably priced. Liked that they use locally sourced meat.

We arrived to a very busy pub with a very efficient waitress. Lovely pub, food and decadent bourbon pecan pie on a wet bank holiday. Bliss

We visited The Bull at the beginning of our long weekend to the British Grand Prix. We hadn't pre-booked a table, none the less we were greeted by a lovely young lady who happily told us that we could eat inside or outside, our choice. We chose to eat inside and received a very attentive service. Our meal (Hunters Chicken)... More

Stopped in Towcester on Fridat for a meal with no fixed idea of where to go and no local knowledge. Looked at the town centre pubs first, then asked a local who recommended The Bull. A very good choice - nice beer garden, dog-friendly in garden and side bar. Meal would have been served in any area but we opted... More

First time in this pub, despite going through a door with lounge on it got a negative reception from what turned out to be the landlord as we had entered the restaurant. Eventually located a table in the garden, chose our meals then waited. And waited. Eventually the starter arrived, but only half of it and had to go and... More

The Bull is 10 minutes walk from home so a local for me. The food is very good, the beer is well kept and the beer garden is excellent with a small play area for young children.
