Started visiting this lovely little pub in December 2014 and have been back in a weekly basis since. The landlord and landlady are extremely charming people that talk to all their customers as if they have known them for years. They have made us so welcome that I even call it my local now. Carry on the good work 😊

We spent a lovely afternoon with 3 generations in tow enjoying log fires and good food served with a smile. This was our first visit and although the menu is short the food that arrived was perfect for a frosty afternoon. All hearty stuff, great bangers and mash and some delicious venison the landlord reported had been shot and hung... More

Just returned from The Bucks Head and can only report my utter disappointment. Glorious setting and picturesque pub but try getting served at the bar. Despite being New Years Day it wasn't too busy and with three bar staff my expectations were high. I started to have my doubts when customers came to the bar, addressed the staff by name... More

New Years Day was incredibly busy with walkers, diners and regular customers. We try our best to serve everyone but sometimes patience is required. More

We discovered this lovely place in just before the previous landlady retired. We have been a few times since. The new people are very friendly, the food is good and the location charming. We enjoy this place whenever we go...Maple is a well trained dog who is great at greeting guests !

We found this pub on trip advisor and the reviews sounded great, we were meeting some friends and this was halfway, and well worth the drive, we had a very warm welcome when we arrived and as we were early settled down for a drink first. They were very busy and the place was fully booked, we had taken the... More

I learned a few days ago that the long time landlord/landlady had retired and moved to Greece. I was hoping that whoever had taken over would maintain the high standards that Helen and her husband had set. I was delighted to see on my visit that Helen's sister, Carol and her husband Ralph had taken over. Our greeting was very... More

We found this on trip advisor and thought we would try it. Rang & booked a table which was a good idea as it seemed to be a very popular place. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome from Helen the owner. The food was amazing, my husband ordered the roast which he really enjoyed. I ordered... More
