Visted on a weekday lunchtime with partner and father.Lovely little pub with an open fire in the back room.Very welcoming staff BUT SO SLOW !.....45 mins wait for food.My chicken was OK,chips were hard,veg poor.Partner and father had steak pudding,way too big and heavy.
We left without pudding,so disappointed.

Whilst on holiday my husband & I visited this pub with my son, his wife and two small grandchildren. We were seated in a nice little side room with a lovely real open fire. It is not grand and pretentious, but very warm and welcoming.
The food was delicious.We had steak and Guinness pie, and fish & chips. The food was freshly made and lovely and warm.My 3 year old grand-daughter had a lovely plate of real food, not the usual rubbish served up on "children's" menus in so many other places. Desserts were gorgeous too. I don't drink beer but my husband and son said it was excellent.
We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The young barman did give us a teapot to heat the baby's bottle - but the landlord cheerily gave us a pint jug of warm water, once he'd stopped laughing.
It was lovely to be able to sit and have a conversation without music or televisions blaring. We went back again during our weeks holiday, and I would highly recommend that you visit it.

Visited the Lower Buck on weekday lunchtime expecting good food and a nice pint in pleasant surroundings. Well, the pub is indeed very pleasant in a lovely location. But the rest is bad news. My friend and I had what was billed as Lancashire Hotpot. What was served was some bits of meat, which may or may not have been lamb (it was hard to tell as they were swimming in what tasted like Bisto or some other gravy mix) topped off with ultra-thin slivers of potato that had welded themselves together. Surrounding this were some carrots and a bit of cauliflower, together with chips that had been reheated so often they were dark brown and rock hard. Whatever it was, Lancashire Hotpot it most certainly wasn't. To add insult to injury, the beer was cloudy. Oh - and we were charged premium prices for this terribly disappointing experience. We shan't be going back any time soon.

This pub and of course the lovely village, re-affirmed to me that England still exists and our countryside isn't quite yet spoilt. Excellent bar staff, quality ales and a lovely roast dinner aside a warm fire - it was a typical summers day, cold and very wet! but the greeting and setting was warm and bright.

This was exactly what I was seeking from my visit. Lancashire is full of gems and the Lower Buck really made me feel welcome. Will visit again.
