My friend and I were walking the South Downs Way, and were booked into the Buck's Head by South Downs Discovery (very good baggage transfer service). We had a lovely, clean, comfortable room. The cooked breakfast was fantastic, and Nicki was very friendly. I recommend unreservedly!

The owners are very nice to deal with and friendly, a... More

Had a lovely lunch here with Mum today. I googled pubs in the area as taking mum out for a country drive for lunch on a nice day seemed like a good idea. We both had lamb rump from the specials board, which was delicious. Will be back.

We spent a night here while walking the South Downs Way and fully endorse all the positive comments about the Buck's Head. Good-sized room with a comfortable bed. Everything clean and in good condition. The bathroom had a bath with a shower in it so we were able to have a reviving soak after the day's walking. Our room was... More

But I was pleasantly suprised when the lady said "yes no problem" we were warmly welcomed which doesnt happen much these days and then given menu's on a single A4... More

The penultimate night of our SDW walk - arrived before opening time, but were welcomed in by the manager and shown to a spacious, comfortable room with ensuite bathroom. Another great meal of generous proportions - plus I was told the Greene King World Hop Medley went down a treat - good atmosphere in the pub. Slept well - not... More

The Buck's Head is our local and we are grateful every day that it is! Management has recently changed, and the Buck's Head has been transformed into a lovely, comfortable, rural Hampshire pub with excellent food. The menu changes about monthly, and as we eat there about once per week this is just perfect. There are good standard pub fare... More

this is a lovely little country pub with b&b facilities. The pub was flooded badly last year and has been totally refurbished .The new owners Nicki and Shaun are very friendly. The food is excellent and the beer also.
