Lovely little pub

Just popped in for a drink prior to going to dinner elsewhere but felt very cosy in a pub with good choice of real ale and an attractive looking food menu. Infact we wished we hadn't arranged to eat elsewhere as the food looked so good but we hope to return.

Hadn't been here for some time but had good memories so popped in today for lunch. Friendly welcome, good beer, excellent meal. I had the chicken liver, lardons and puy lentil salad. Gorgeous. The pub still has a proper pub feel, so many have become identikit grey painted gastro outfits, this place, excuse the pun, bucks the trend.

We called into the Buck Inn in Norwich recently and were greeted by a very friendly girl behind the bar. We were made to feel that welcome we thought to try out the food which beautiful. It certainly had that home cooked taste to all four of us. Partially recommended is the pork. This pub is situated by what could... More

The place is lovely, an old English pub, the food is ok and the staff is nice, I would give more stars if it wasn't the fact that they just rip you off in the drinks, I mean, in the food I don't mind to pay for good food and anyway, once you see the prices in the menu it... More

Had an amazing meal with my husband and they bent over backwards to make me a GF steak burger the best I have ever tasted. My husband had beef stew and was blown away at how good it was and even told the chef what a wonderful meal we both had. We will be going back lots.

I have been to the Buck Inn previously (3/4 years ago) and the food had been great. This saturday, i thought i would treat my girlfriend to a proper pub meal and we wanted to try somewhere new. What a mistake!! The food was truly hideous and even the staff were embarrassed to serve it. When the chef produced what... More

My husband and I booked weeks in advance to take my mother in law out for Sunday lunch; we'd travelled up from the South West - a 5 hour drive. The web site looked inviting and along with the fact the Christmas market was being held on the same day along the river we thought we'd be in for a... More

We came to The Buck as it was only a stones throw from the hotel we were staying in. There was a large group of us as we had just finished business in Norwich. There was one young lady behind the bar who coped extremely well considering. We were all ordering drinks and food, nothing was too much trouble and... More

Visited on a stormy Tuesday night. Great setting(if you visit in the daytime ). Inside the pub is homely but still smart inside. The beer was well kept, the staff friendly. Nice atmosphere. The food was really lovely, well presented, Good portions and all home made. I would recommend going.
