Could be a great pub but needs the effort and the personal touch.Go down the road too the Rush Cutters if you want food and service (not much better). It feels just like a chaint I'll take your money and run.

Went and had look at the church next door and then thought we'd pop into this pub as it was a quirky mish mash of buildings. Good range of ales, average prices. Landlord friendly.

We used to use this as a general pub visit but I feel it has now moved up a class bracket and has made it unusable for the drinking purpose. There is an air of snobbishness which deters the local user and it now tends to focus on the food element too much.

We came to Norwich for a weekend away? after research we decided that the Bucks pub was the best pub in the area for a great night and some good food, we gathered this from there website. Got to the pub, no food as the chef had left 3 months ago, still the website reports that they have great food,... More

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
