“Christmas dinner. Good enough at the price.”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

We had a Christmas dinner here for around 30 people and all went well.
The setting was good. The food was well presented. The service was fine.
The most remarkable thing in fact was how unremarkable the whole experience was.
Yes, the food was ok. Yes, the waiters and waitresses performed their duties well enough. Yes, the room was ok.
For me, there was nothing to set it apart from so many other small town pub/inn establishments.
I'd be quite happy to recommend Bucks Head to others but would say don't expect "memorable" and you wont be disappointed.

we have just been to the Bucks for a drink before heading off else where for a meal, depite thjem having two dining areas, nearly every table has a reserved sign on, we were made to feel very unwellcome, in fact , despite there being very few people in the pub we were told on on three occasions, in less than an hour they might need our seats if someone came in for food.

Stayed December 2011, traveled with family

This gem of a pub/hotel has changed my mind about the dire accomodation the U.K is reputed for. Situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Church Stretton blessed with plenty of easy parking, the 'Buck's Head' offers spacious rooms appointed to a very high standard. The staff are welcoming and genuinly friendly and although we didn't dine there that night, the breakfast the following morning was one of the best 'full English' blow-outs I have had in a long time. A number of real ales were available in the bar which only added to pleasure of staying somewhere 'really nice' for once. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer which at £42 per night would hardly break the bank. All in all the 'Buck's Head' is excellent value for money and well deserving of its 4star AA rating. And No, I am not related to the management.

Room Tip: I stayed in room number 3 somewhat away from the church bells which toll the hour but do not disturb...
