Food main stream Pub Grub.......Only downside was the quality of the "real ales" thought they tried to offer to many, as a result quality below average . Owners and staff, always a pleasure to deal with.

Just had a meal at this pub and wow we weren't disappointed. Huge portions, too much to eat. Lovely home cooked food. Friendly staff. Recommend to all if you are in this neck of the woods. We walked from Trewythen Lodges and what a lovely walk it was.

We visited The Buck whilst staying at some log cabins nearby we booked the night before and they had availability despite being really busy on the night. We had three great courses and really enjoyed the food and ambience. I would recommend this little gem.

The drinks were very reasonably priced and the beer... More

We are local and it's a treat to be able to walk to this superb restaurant and pub in one. The food is of the highest quality and cooked with care and attention, local fresh ingredients are used. Fast food it's not, but when busy the wait is well worth it. We had a great evening with a good selection... More

To await the arrival of family travelling from Australia who had booked accommodation at The Buck Hotel, 14 of us decided to get together and Sunday lunch. With three young children and one vegetarian among our group, the service came well up to standard with a highchair provided for the littlest member of our group and nothing too much trouble....

This was our second visit to the Buck Hotel. We had tried to visit earlier in the week and discovered that they only do food on certain evenings. The pub has a typical local feel to it and we were given a warm welcome and we were told that the restaurant was closed but they were doing bar food. The... More

The food here is absolutely amazing!! It is worth the drive just for the food. We had both dinner and lunch meals. There are great choices and comes with lots of vegetables as extras. The desserts were delish. And the service - awesome! Staff was very attentive and on hand as required.
