Bar staff amazing.. Friendly, helpful. New landlady.. Miserable.. Hospitality is not her strong point. No welcome smile or hello just a look. The food was ok. Thats as good as I can give it really. Such a shame as this is a beautiful pub in an amazing location.

Decided to return to this traditional Thorpe pub after a couple of years absence. We enjoyed a very good quality and good value roast lunch. The meat was plentiful and the vegetables fresh and perfectly cooked. Under new owners, the atmosphere and service is very friendly and the pub is working hard to rebuild a good reputation. Don't understand previous... More

We re-discovered the Buck Inn recently and had a reasonable Sunday Lunch served by nice staff. It was OK and we enjoyed the visit, so we returned the following Sunday. This time we were served black carbonised Yorkshire Puddings, burnt roast potatoes and there was no crackling, even though we asked. No crackling with the pork. A skinless pig perhaps?... More

Not much on the menu and all very bog standard. A disappointment. Staff friendly. Food was dry and bland. Think they are fairly new owners/managers, but have a long way to go to restore The Bucks former good reputation.

After visiting previously, and experiencing two delicious meals (a few years ago) in the cosy and busy pub, I was looking forward to a nice meal. However when we arrived, the place was nearly empty. Sadly, the menu was very limited, with many of the specials from before (which are still on the website) not available. Our food was poor,... More

Quaint little pub on the edge of Norwich. The staff were wonderful: really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was nice. The menu was a bit limited (it was a Sunday so I expect most people have a roast). The food was hot and fresh and was reasonably priced, it was just a bit bland and average. The desserts were...

Years ago this was one of the best pubs in Thorpe St Andrew. Unfortunately today, it's got to be the worst. I Went today to catch up with family after hearing that it was under new management, yet again! This pub's had more managers in recent times than Norwich City Football Club. We arrived, on a half-term week which usually... More
