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 visit the bull regularly for food and drinks, in my opinion serves the best food in Towcester always delicious and well priced, The steaks are just to die for and cooked perfectly Everytime. The staff are always friendly and the owner Alberto is always finding ways of improving the place, well done to everyone at the bull!

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.

We have visited this restaurant a number of times and have never left there feeling disappointed. Admittedly, we found this place through Groupon, but unlike other places that advertise to new customers in this way, we were given the best of the best. We have since visited at various times of the day, sometimes for dinner as a couple when... More

We went for lunch and first impressions when arriving were ok. The staff were friendly, it has a nice beer garden but the table was sticky which always makes me nervous about the hygiene of the food. The food was tasty, good proper pub food but nothing amazing. Staff were really friendly but seemed a bit rushed off their feet,... More

Sorry but the lack of staff and the time I had to wait was that bad I left. Can't comment on the food because I didn't get the chance to try it. Maybe I will try it again one day Just because I've been told the food is good.
