Had been sitting between two tables of people who had been screaming the whole night. At one point the waitress couldn’t ask what we wanted for food as they table to our left was far too loud.

We were asked for drinks the moment we sat down without getting a chance to look at anything on the menu. Our food came before our drinks did also.

very disappointed with my visit to Buck's this time - waited around 40 minutes for our food to arrive and when we asked if turned up immediately, so was it just sitting out? Waiting for us to enquire? Food was good, but my partner didn't finish his whole meal. He ate maybe just over half and asked for the rest to be boxed up so he could finish it at home. The waitress returned to tell us she had dropped (!) the remainder of his meal so could not box it up. We were not offered a refund for this food that was lost through NO fault of our own. Just told it was now on the floor. Thoroughly disappointed and will not be returning.

We were outside in January freezing floor was wet only two Patio heaters for the whole area. The waiter wasn't paying attention to our order as they brought the wrong food was gone so quick we didn't hav the chance to say anything. My drink came jn a wine glass when it wasn't wine I ordered disappointed as I had heard great things about your restaurant.

Was sat up in a booth next to the toilets with a 3 year old and they, for whatever reason, had the fire door (next to the toilets) open when it was 2’c outside. Staff were constantly opening the door to the toilets and not closing it behind them leaving us freezing the entire time. Food is always nice but it arriving on a filthy wooden tray takes a shine off it. No clue how they think they’re sanitary. Will defo be back, but when it’s not winter and will be requesting an actual ceramic plate.

Took two stars off as I was charged for the people sitting at our table before us on top of our own bill.

This equated to £150. I understand this was an accident however I was advised it will take between 7 and 10 days to refund. Not ideal for January.

Great food and comfortable atmosphere. Only issue was the bar shut at 6, not an issue as I was driving and it was Hogmanay, but should really have been told when we sat down. Oh and the floors were really slippery but weather outside was awful. Overall we had a great time
