“Boxing Day - Xmas Lunch 2013”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Visited to day for boxing day lunch and what a difference! Greta new decor and love the stuffed puffin.
Slightly cramped on a table for 6 although we had pre- booked...
The Food was excellent espically he Venison hamburger I had. The lamb shank also was very good.
Kids portions a little small.
I must say Terri & Gemma looked after us and were fab! Thank you so much...

Normally one of our favourite New Forest pubs. Today they fell below par. Food was okay at best, but as one of our meat eating party commented, he'd had better roasts at the Toby carvery. To be fair, the vegetarian options were very nice, but not great. Very poor selection of veg with only just enough to go round. Booking was made with dog, and while this was accepted at the time we were basically told to hide him as we were in the main restaurant. Waitress was condescending, shouty and bossy. They completely disregarded two food specific (allergy related) orders and had to take two plates back and replace them and cocked up the dessert orders.

They have recently been refurbished, have suffered from power cuts during storms, and were very busy, so maybe they were just out of their depth on this occasion, but none of that excuses the basic admin errors and a waitress that lacked basic people skills.

Hoping this isn't a sign of things to come post refurbishment as usually much better than this.

We didn't stay because the bedrooms are currently being refurbed but definitely this is now a place you definitely would want to. Dog friendly, absolutely stunning interior, by far the nicest place to visit in the forest, elegant and welcoming, open fires, comfortable seating and a great looking new menu. You will go back when you have tried it

Dear Barbie 1

Wow what a fantastic review, thank you so much. I am delighted that you loved all the 'foresty' aspects of the White Buck as we are very much part of the New Forest.

I look forward to hopefully meeting you one day at the Buck.

We live just down the road from the White Buck and used to go there for the odd drink and that was about it; it was old and tired and really quite expensive for what it was.

However, now it's beautiful! The recent refurbishment is absolutely stunning. Can't believe it is the same pub! The food was really lovely and the staff were very friendly! It is still quite expensive but we were much happier to part with our money this, it is somewhere we are very very glad to call our local!

Dear 972123abc2013

Thank you for your review of the White Buck, I can't tell you how pleased I was to hear that you are now very glad to call the White Buck your local, that is high praise indeed. I am delighted you found our food to be good and staff to be friendly and although I am entirely biased, I do agree that the refurubishment itself is absolutely stunning.

I look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
