My husband and I had a wonderful meal at the newly refurbished White Buck. The experience from start to finish was superb. We arrived early and sat in the wonderful garden, and then when we came in for dinner then we were seated in a lovely spot for a couple and made to feel very welcome to have visited the hotel. The menu was mouthwatering and we struggled with what too choose but we have to say that the prawn and crayfish compote is divine and worth a try! The staff were incredibly attentive and the manager Annette went the extra mile (literally). She is the perfect host and adds the personal touch by finding the time to speak with her guests. A very enjoyable evening and we will definitely be returning.

Hi,

Thank you for the review, I love getting to meet the people that come into the pub, everyone is different and visits us for different reasons but all with one goal, to enjoy good food and a great range of drinks.

It was lovely to meet you and I hope to see you again (with the kids) in October.

Kind regards
Annette
Deputy Manager

We were staying in Burley and visited the White Buck twice during our stay with our two small girls. The woodland play area is fantastic for the girls whilst allowing us adults to have a chat and drink the in the lovely surroundings. Staff were very friendly, we only had drinks and chips which were great and the food being served looked very very nice, This place has been transformed from the drab over priced place it was 4 years ago when we last visited.A must when in the area. We will be back!

My family, friend and I had such a fabulous evening tonight at The White Buck. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great, however the absolute stand out was Emma, who looked after us for the evening. Nothing was a trouble for her, and she was so helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend The White Buck to anyone.

We had a really lovely meal in this refurbished restaurant. We have been coming to the White Buck Inn for many years and have always had a lovely meal there but having not visited for a while, we were surprised when we saw it had been refurbished to a very high standard. We had booked our table and were greeted immediately by staff on arrival and taken straight to our table. The ambience of the restaurant was lovely. Our waitress, Amber, was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food available and the refurbishment which had taken place. The food was fantastic and we would definitely highly recommend this restaurant.

The White Buck is in a very peaceful, picturesque setting in the heart of The New Forest, near Burley. Recently refurbished, but being a vegetarian found little choice on the menu. I eat fish so ordered small fish and chips at £9.50. As fish and chips go this was not the best , being lots of greasy batter and very little fish. Desserts way over priced at around £6.50 for a small square of bread and butter pudding and small jug of custard . Noticed that cheapest bottle of wine was £28. There is a lot of competition around, and have found other similar restaurants better choice of food and value for money. Service however was excellent and very friendly, helpful staff. Ample parking.
