I would definitely recommend the food as it is always to a high, tasty standard. However, on my last visit there were two points of concern that made the experience slightly worse than my previous ones. Firstly, having booked online for a table of 4 we were quite unimpressed by the table we were given. Instead of a booth as we normally would get (which there was 1 available and in the others we had seen only parties of 3 and even 2 people were sat at) we were given what was essentially a table for 2 with 4 chairs squeezed together - making it quite uncomfortable for 4 adults. As well as this we received a jug of water which hadn’t seemed to have been washed out before refilling and thus the taste of carrots was present. Not the worst thing in the world but towards the end of the bottle it became undrinkable and we had to ask for another. Residue could clearly be seen at the bottom of the jug. Thankfully, the 2nd jug was drinkable.

We went to bucks bar for a meal before seeing black stone cherry, our first time there. The cocktails were amazing and I had a particularly tasty old fashioned. For food we decided to have chicken on waffles and I opted for the siracha mac n cheese chicken waffle which I can say without a doubt is probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten. The vibe and the atmosphere in the place is amazing and the service was fantastic, didn’t catch the name of any of the staff but everybody was very welcoming and professional. I will be recommending this place and will definitely come back. 🙂

Really good food, great selection on the menu and caters for gluten free and vegetarians. The pub quiz is on on Monday nights from 6pm and is really good fun but you do need to book the table for two hours.

Go to bucks bar every now and then. It’s a nice place, good atmosphere and good food. I always go with pals on a Monday to do the quiz and get some food. We booked a table at 5 o clock... it gives us time to get in, get some food and the quiz usually starts around finishing that. My friend arrived a little early for the table by himself, I think it was about half four... not an issue as nobody was in. My friend was told at the time they would need the table back by half seven, not ideal as there’s a few of us and we’re playing the quiz so u have your papers etc. Shortly after finishing our food we were told they would need the table back by half six. Understandably, we were unhappy with this and were offered a round of free drinks to compensate. We reluctantly accepted after trying to fight our corner with a couple of members of staff (in a polite and courteous way). We then had to stand to finish the quiz at a bar type round table, which was a bit more uncomfortable, a bit annoying, and just put a bit of a downer on the rest of the night. I found it more disappointing as there was a table beside us that (albeit were booked slightly later) did not order any food, had less people sat at it and did not get moved and enjoyed the full quiz sat at their table. The gesture of the drinks was appreciated, however everyone of us would rather just have sat at the comfort of our table. We spent a decent bit of money in the place, didn’t cause any issues and felt we received a sub standard service (which in fairness, is usually better).

As a regular at Bucks Bar I know exactly what to expect and always have high expectations because they never let me down.

I’m not about to tell you that they let me down on this occasion either. From the moment the two of us walked through the door we were greeted by a smiling Simone (names may be wrong but my regularity and devout Instagram following of Bucks has led me to know most of the friendly staff) who showed us to our table bang on our 6pm booking time.

After a quick browse of the menu we were offered drinks and another member of staff even came to check we had drinks on order with a couple of minutes. On a busy Saturday with an almost full restaurant this was impressive. Richard then came over to take our order and no pen and paper was needed which can make me uneasy but knowing Bucks I had no fear!

Our food was on our table within 20 minutes and as always with Bucks our jaws were agape as our Chicken Burgers sat in front of us. A small side of the incredible Halloumi Nuggets also graced our table. The silence at the table lasted as long as the food did which was not very long at all. Another fantastic meal and we were all set to head off. Not before settling our bill and again the friendly staff made sure all was done with a smile. Richard even found time to wind us up by pretending he didn’t know who Frank Turner was (to be fair not everyone does).

I’ll be back soon enough of course, how anyone can stay away for more than a couple of weeks is beyond me!! Staff members mentioned were exceptional but it was clear from looking around that this is the case with the whole team!

The first thing we noticed was the volume of the music - much too loud for conversation. I assume someone noticed this as the volume was lowered. Then raised. Then lowered again. It settled at a volume whereby conversation was possible. The food arrived promptly and was quaintly served in wooden trays. The chicken was absolutely scrumptious - between us we tasted a fair selection of both hot and medium fare. Highly recommended. The fries, coleslaw etc. were all delectable too. We finished with a delightful cocktail each. Generous potions meant we left feeling comfortably full.

Food was good piping hot and massive portion sizes for the price :)) love
Feel like the food was not worth the insta hype salt and chilli chips were not spicy at all, the place is really trending online but I feel like this made me expect outstanding food
Drinks are really expensive for 4 drinks of coke we were £ 18 ish
Didn’t like the week day quiz as it ruined date night would have been fun for a group night out /dinner wish I would have known this when booking online and I would have booked a different time
Was really good but I wouldn’t be dying to go back

Expected it to be good (from recommendations) but was blown away by the quality and portion size. I had the Sunday brunch pancake with maple syrup and gravy. The three pieces of chicken were huge! We started with a variety of wings to share, they were so good. Can’t decide if I liked the Korean or the salt and chilli best, actually they were both delicious. Everyone in the group loved what they had, service was really good, everyone very attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend. Will be back soon!

The food was absolutely outstanding and we definitely had a fantastic visit.
The service however, was slow and the waitress kept walking away whilst we were trying to give her the drinks order. We were part of a large party and when we paid the bill there was over £40 change and it was presumed that this was a tip and we had to ask for it back. The party was very annoyed by this as it was extremely presumptuous. However, this did not take away from how fantastic the food was so we will be back and hopefully service improves on our next visit.

Been to Buck's a few times since it opened and it's been great every time. The wings are the main attraction, with the Korean wings arguably being one best. Tried the popcorn chicken on this visit too and it was great.

Good value for money and really filling - Think 8 wings and a side would do most people. They play a lot of rock music (Led Zep, Black Keys and ACDC were on last visit), service is really quick and friendly. Definitely recommend.
