Open all year
Dog friendly

New owners took over The Buck in February 2016. Chef Dave Russell and business partner Jem Jarvis offer a warm and friendly welcome and are keen to keep the classic British country pub atmosphere. In the bar, the menu offers pub classics, from fish and chips to steak sandwiches, while in the restaurant you might start with crab and Granny Smith cocktail, with avocado purée and cumin snaps; or wild mushroom and mascarpone pâté with toasted focaccia. Main courses like pan-roasted breast of duck with courgette ribbons and fondant potatoes; slow-roasted belly of pork with apricot boudin noir, celeriac and apple purée and green peppercorn sauce; or sea bass with lemon risotto and vine roasted tomatoes. Look out for a famous trainer exercising his horses, or the locals playing quoits in the garden.
