Staying at the town house, down the road, we decided to try this restaurant/pub. It is clearly very old and quaint with an aged atmosphere. Drinks prices are average, with limited choice. The menu is varied with something to suit everybody. we found inside a little too dark, but this could be well worth a visit.

Warm welcome from the friendly staff, food is very good, but unfortunately it's still crying out for that TLC.

Visited this charming pub/restaurant today for lunch. Real ales exceptional quality, and we all appreciated the offer of "tasters" before deciding which one to choose. Service was very friendly and attentive. Between the four of us we had two roast beef, and two fish and chips. Plates totally cleared. I especially appreciated that the horseradish sauce had small cubes of... More

This was our second time to visit the Buck Inn, greeted with a friendly smile, this seems to be more of a drinkers pub then eating, tried the lunch time menu, the food was of good quality, but crying out for T.L.C. I'm afraid there is no atmosphere.

The Buck Inn has pretensions to be a higher end gastropub, which its website fully suggests. My wife and I went there for an anniversary meal and I am at a loss as to where all the previous good reviews have come from. I can only assume that, with it being it January and the food trade being slack, a... More

After a long day of small but time-consuming DIY jobs in our new house we didn't feel like cooking, so we set out to walk the half mile to the Rushcutters for a quick pub dinner only to be told they were fully booked. This turned out to be a very fortunate hiccup in our plans because it encouraged us... More

Tried this pub several times since it was taken over but lacks character now, tried to be too upmarket with it's snacks of olives and sadly not going back again.

We visited on 23rd October and loved the food. You should try the hand made nacho's they were absolutely gorgeous. We also had pan fried salmon which was just as good. The service was great and the staff were really friendly. The pub is opposite the river so would be lovely in the summer. We had a really lovely evening... More
