On a wet dismal Monday afternoon, having abandoned our planned shopping trip in Winchester, we stopped off on our way home for lunch. There was only one member of staff on duty and he was very busy, taking orders and serving all on his own. However, he was very polite and apologised for keeping us waiting because he had no...

We have been here a couple of times for lunch in the last 6 months and the food is consistently good and the beer is excellent. The hosts are very friendly and I'd describe this as a good country pub in pleasant surroundings. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

Stayed here with 3 children whilst walking the South Downs way. It was definitely the best place we stayed along our route. The bedrooms were spacious, beds comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I had originally tried two pubs in the area for lunch which were full, so when we walked in the Bucks Head after driving by and seeing it served food we were very grateful they could seat us. I'm always nervous when trying a place to eat when it hasn't been recommended to me but food did...

Visited for Sunday lunch and had an excellent roast beef with all the trimmings. Have previously sampled some other items from a reasonably priced menu with specials always on offer. Very dog friendly with a young staff who are attentive and enthusiastic. We shall be returning many times, I am sure.

Not been here for a while but the pub has all been refurbished following flooding. Pleasantly surprised. All nicely done and the pub still has its cosy welcoming feel. Menu has plenty of choice to suit most tastes. Ordered the ham and chips. This arrived in a timely manner (on a plate and not jenga stacked on a piece of...

Stayed for one night as part of South downs walk. The Bucks head is situated in a beautiful location with a clear trout stream running around the side of the property. The welcome was friendly. Although I stayed on the one night of the week they do not serve food they kindly made up a fantastic high quality ploughman's. Also...

Another great big thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so lucky to be in such a wonderful part of the country, glad you enjoyed it. I am thrilled you rate the ploughman's, and personally delighted about the scrambled eggs, thanks again. Nicki

Stopped here for a bite to eat on a Sunday afternoon, post lunch time. I asked the landlord if they were still doing food, he seemed a little unsure until he heard we wanted a couple of ploughman's lunches. He must have been rubbing his hands with glee. The 'lunch' consisted of 'plastic' ham, 'plastic' cheese, gherkins that were past...

I will say that it is with great sadness that a review like this has been posted on our pretty much, unblemished record. (We have been here for the last two years, previous comments were under other ownership). I am disappointed to have answer this, especially when no negative feedback was offered at the time.
