We had one night here on the South Downs Way. Very large room, nice bathroom with lovely large bath towels. All the things you need. Great food. Lovely relaxed and happy atmosphere. Would definitely stay there again.

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.

We decided for our summer staff it would be a brilliant idea to find a local country pub and ask them if we could take over their garden and be provided with a BBQ. The Bucks Head fit the bill perfectly, nestled next to the river Meon in the little village of Meonstoke and they happily obliged with Nikki being... More

Long standing previous visitor very disappointed with the change.losted its country charm nee menu though on reading looks great but very disappointing both in quantity and quality. Food quality bland almost no flavour and slimy in texture.

Well it's been just over a year now since the pub was forced into a major refurbishment, after the flooding in the area. We have had great feedback on the look of the pub, and I don't believe it has lost it's country pub feel. I am sorry to see your review, and wish we could have addressed it at... More

A warm welcome and very helpful. Very nice food in the evening and I was able to get breakfast at 7 so I could make an early start on my walking holiday. Not too busy for a Monday evening, but still some life in the pub, i.e. it wasn't dead. I expect it would be wise to book early for... More

Great tip about the churches, they are well worth a visit. We also have the most amazing countryside in this area, and easily accessible, what a fantastic spot for a great pub! Thank you for the great review. Nicki More

This 16th century village inn is about the half way home point for us from a day out at the seaside and it's only a stones throw off the main road. The car park is opposite the pub and as it's a quiet village there's no danger of getting mowed down by a speed demon as you cross. The interior... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I am so glad you noticed our seasonal ale, the locals are really enjoying the variety, and the great quality on offer. The fish & chips are so popular here, especially the large portions. See you again soon. Nicki More

Decided to make a return visit to The Bucks Head and we were not disappointed. The food was every bit as good as on our first visit and the staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We are both vegetarians and the choice was excellent. We had the stir fry which was delicious and plentiful we... More

We always try to update our vegetarian dishes regularly, and not a vegetable lasagne in sight :+) You don't have to be travelling far to stay with us. A cheeky night away might be just what the doctor ordered! Hope to see you again very soon. Nicki More

We ate here today with friends and we were all very impressed. We have eaten at a lot of pubs this year and this was definitely the best meal we have had. Friendly helpful landlady. Spotlessly clean and attractive decor. Can't wait for the next visit!
