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

Excellent beer garden, plenty of parking, lovely, relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant area, great food and wine, friendly service without being overly intrusive.

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.

We had visited Stowe Landscape Gardens last Sunday and wanted some 'pub grub' as we headed home to Northampton mid-afternoon. We diverted towards Towcester and happened upon The Bull. They were still serving food until 4pm, so we ordered our drinks and sat down in a fairly quiet restaurant. Many people were sat outside but we chose to go indoors.... More

We tend to use the Bull about once a month as its our local. A nice and varied menu, couples with a good selection of beer and wine plus very friendly and helpful staff make for a very pleasant experience.

Visited this pub with an Amazon Local voucher. The welcome upon arrival was very friendly and we had a choice of tables as it was not full. The decor is nice and looks very clean. The view through to the bar shows nice leather seating so it looks like they have put quite a bit of effort into the pub.... More

My wife & I ate at the Bull again last week. As usual, we went for the sharing platter with piri pri prawns fishcakes and lots more. Delicious. Piri piri chicken and Portuguese Bitoque for mains - also tasty. There's very often a deal with Amazon or Groupon at the Bull and I recommend you get a voucher and try... More

We had a lovely meal here on a Friday evening. It was approx £60 for 2 of us with starters, mains and 2 rounds of drinks. The steaks we had were beautifully cooked (rare as asked for). The beer garden looked good but unfortunately the weather was a little cold. Would come back.
