Family Sunday lunch. Good service from our waiter. But disappointed with the meal on the occasion. The parsnips were rubbery the green beans were over cooked and soggy. Gravy not that tasty. But it filled the hole.

Have been going to the Buck for many years but was extremely disappointed today! Luke warm food, tasteless brown water for gravy, the yorkshire pudding tasted as though they had been warmed in the microwave and as for the roast pots I just don't know!!!!

We had a lovely meal here, there's a friendly atmosphere and great food. Nice village location with plenty of parking space. Highly recommend trying the Caribbean curried goat.

We booked on a Sunday for 2pm but arrived early and was sat straight away, I'd say around 1:40. Our experience was exemplary and would definitely recommend. Hope this helps.
