You won't be disappointed

We've had Saturday lunch here twice now and have not been disappointed. Lunch for 3 and 2 rounds of drinks will come to about £45/- so it won't break the bank. You can dine inside or out, they have a beer garden. The place overlooks the river and boats. The staff are very courteous, friendly and... read more

We stopped here at the end of our boating holiday,moored up just opposite the pub. It was raining so we went to see if the dog would be allowed in, they said she was welcome as were the children. By the time we were sorted the rain had stopped so we sat in a nice beer garden with views of... More

A pretty little pub with a great selection of real ales and bar snacks. I'd definitely consider eating here and it may well become my local :-)

Really enjoyed the food here. A smaller and intimate pub by the stunning river green. We all had ham egg and chips... Best I've had in years... Rally good quality ham, runny egg and home cut chips.. Just what the doctor ordered.

This establishment has wonderful interior decor and makes for a wonderful experience whilst waiting for your food! The pub staff tends to change quite a lot, but most of the time they are polite and do a good job of serving. The food is substantial, you definitely get what you pay for! The Buck has really good quality food at... More

We were looking for a simple meal in an unpretentious, pleasant setting, and this fitted the requirement nicely. Sadly there was only bottled cider, though I'm told the beer was good. The burger was a generous size and hit the spot - looked like it had been made of proper meat. The place was quite busy but not noisy, and... More

Had the beef stroganoff... which featured a few strips of cheap overcooked beef swimming in a flavourless sauce obviously thickened with flour... the service, while friendly, was hopeless; had to move the finished plates to another table as the waiter/bar man was too busy chatting to friends at the bar. The Buck Inn has enjoyed a nice refurbishment but it's... More

Called in on a sunny Thursday evening when the riverside location was very popular. The pub has flagstone floors and is a series of smallish interconnecting rooms. Both staff and locals were friendly and made us welcome. The pub offered a good range of real ales from local Brewers, and a food menu that combined traditional pub favourites with more... More
