We passed by on a previous night on the way for dinner. At that stage it seemed very busy...the car park was full. After we'd eaten the following night we decided to try The Buck for a drink. It wasn't quite as busy as the night before. There appeared to be just one member of bar staff on duty and... More

Sunday roasts can be very hit and miss in Norwich. We hadn't been to the Buck in a while so decided to return. Very pleased we did - roasts were excellent, brilliant flavour and plenty of it. All the meats were really well cooked and service was excellent. Well recommended for a Sunday lunch stop.

But the one member of staff on bar duty should NOT have been expected to be barmaid, food server, order taker, waitress, glass clearer .... my goodness she worked hard .. but .....! poor girl .. Quite frankly, customers are embarassed to... More

We sat in the beer garden on a sunny Sunday, early evening and had a fabulous meal. The food was so good, three of us had the buck burger, big juicy with all the trimmings. I had fish and chips with mushy peas, it was all really good quality at a reasonable price.I do hope the buck continues to do... More

The small but well thought out menu of home cooked food is some of the best in Norwich.Yesterday (15/7/16) I had sea bream and Gnocci in a ragu-absolutely delicious.My Mum visited recently and we both had Tuna in salsa, very tasty and beautifully presented with...

Lovely little place with smiley staff, not cheap but really pleasant tasting food, depending on who cooks presentation did vary but perhaps I'm being too picky, well worth a visit
