Visited the Bucks Head last weekend (an evening meal on Saturday); we were made very welcome by the owners. The food was excellent and represented very good value for money for the quality of food. This is a nice country pub, that is well worth a visit.

Arrived with friends on Friday evening after a cold walk down and received a very warm welcome from the landlord and landlady, a tremendous pint of bishops finger and a roaring fire. The pub looks fantastic and has a really cosy and friendly atmosphere. All our food was absolutely superb, my chum and I had the steak and kidney pudding... More

What a great pub, it was everything we wanted. Fabulous good, friendly staff, great atmosphere - just what you'd expect from a country pub. Cannot wait to go back in the new year.

No landlady/lord has ever waved at me when leaving - such a genuine farewell, so sincere. Kind of wish this place was my local. Man in charge tells me he's only been running it for a year - certainly knows his stuff! Homely pub - really comfortable inside. We got there in the nick of time - kitchen closing in... More
