Very welcoming and friendly, and they seem to be trying to engage the local community which is so nice to see with special events such as the duck race. Really nice to see the Bucks Head return to being a thriving village pub again. The food is really good and the starters in some cases almost enough to be a... More

The Buck's Head has recently been refurbished by a large pub chain and has lost a lot of its Hampshire pub charm, sadly. Its position by the River Meon and on the South Downs way will mean that it should do OK, but it now looks more like what a pub executive thinks a Hants pub should be rather than... More

visited the Buck's Head with walking friends, helpful staff, nice and good value sandwiches, plus a well kept pint, met a friend unexpectedly who was with a "pie club" at the pub, and he commented positively on the pies.

There are not many options in this area, but this is a very very good one, several hundred yards south of Exton. Located conveniently to the SDW, near the River Meon (fun to watch the trout darting about), this pub/B & B underwent a major makeover in the spring of 2014 as the result of a flood in the area....

Just found the Buck's Head by chance when travelling back to London from the coast. Venison pie was rated as good and I enjoyed the gammon (poached in butter), egg and chips. Service was polite but I wouldn't say more than that. I liked the décor, quite minimal and calm, very clean. The only complaint I have is, as another... More

Thank you for the review, we appreciate your time in doing so. With regard to the salt and pepper pinch pots, I was looking for something a little different when I purchased them, but several people have commented on the practicality of them (not least of all my poor suffering husband), and with this in mind, I will take a...

The refurbishment was very clean and fresh. The staff were very friendly but the food we had was very average which is a shame. The bread baguettes for the sandwiches were not very nice at all. Very brittle which wrecked the whole sandwich. Slightly better quality bread would have made all the difference.

We popped in for lunch now they have reopened. The pub has been very nicely decorated an open plan style with lovely stone floors. The menu is your standard pub fayre and we had the venison pie and the onion tart. Both were tasty, well cooked and exceptional value for money. We will definitely return

Stayed here for one night as visiting friends in the area. Our room was on the ground flood facing the car park, but this wasn't a problem. The room was incredibly clean and tidy and as soon as we needed something, it was offered to us. Breakfast is included in the price - traditional English but I'm sure if you... More

Dropped in yesterday to look at the refurbishment and meet the new owners as we were very fond of the Buck's head when Maggie and Martin managed it. We feel that the pub is now soulless, cold and unwelcoming. Nicki the landlady was chatty and friendly; the landlord said nothing and appeared unfriendly. The wine list was poor; French or... More
