My husband and I chose this place to stay from the internet and we were not dissappointed. The staff were very welcoming. The room was very comfy and everything you could need was there. We had lunch on arrival, evening meal and full English breakfast the next morning all meals were very nice. Our only criticism if you can call... More

Having visited the pub on several previous occasions, and had a first class meal, it was rather disappointing to be served a roast lamb main course, where the meat was chewy, the outside of the potatoes too tough to cut through, and the yorkshire pudding over-cooked- all this served on a cold plate, which turned the food cold very quickly....

Thank you for your review. Your feedback was quite correct, two of the meals did not go out on warm enough plates, thus cooling your lamb dishes quickly. I am glad that we adjusted the bill accordingly, and glad the rest of the meals were well received. We have addressed this situation, and endeavour to serve all of our lovely... More

Stayed while walking the South Downs Way., and The Bucks Head couldn't have been more welcoming: hot tea, hot shower, lovely fire and food, excellent bed, hearty breakfast, and tips on how to avoid the worst mud up Winchester Hill.

Today we took a group of "over 70's" out to lunch at The Bucks Head. Having booked in advance, and asking for smaller portions, we were given a fantastic choice of dishes. The service was very good very friendly, and extremely understanding. Everyone enjoyed their meals and all voted to visit again in the near future. So a BIG thank... More

Called in after a lovely walk around the village and adjoining countryside, ready for lunch. We were not disappointed, the food was delicious and plentiful also reasonably priced. Lovely welcoming atmosphere, staff so helpful and friendly. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean will definitely be returning soon.

Lunch time meeting with the mum and sisters in law, first visit since the spring makeover. Lovely welcome from Connie, offered us tasters of the real ale and chatted away in a very friendly fashion. We sat down next to a real fireplace but no fire. Place was chilly with new flagstones on floor and previous people left immediately after... More

Set in the countryside with views of the morning mist rising from the fields of frost, this lovely little pub is well worth a visit, We stayed for two nights and arrived late Friday afternoon, received a warm welcome and was shown our room. Warm and cosy, nice bedding and everything we required. Then came dinner in the pub, log... More

Have visited several times in recent months and always found the new styled Bucks to be very friendly and welcoming, definitely a better place from the drab old pub it was. Living nearby never had the need to stay over but has served me very well as a comfy place to drop by and enjoy a pint and read the... More
