    Came after lots of recommendations, had wings, and the hot cock burger with salt and chilli chips. The wings were amazing the chicken just fell off the bones . The burger was ok, I didn’t like the chips at all. The staff were friendly but rushed off their feet so we waited a long time for drinks and service ..overall it was nice but I wouldn’t rush back

    Bucks Trongate is great for value and good tasting food usually.... but today I will have to say they didn't perform well. First off they didn't pay attention to the special requests as were no gluten free menu ready and the fact needed space for my wife who is pregnant but instead we had to sit upstairs in a tight space which was a bit much for her to handle. Secondly we waited over an hour for our food after having been seen to which is too long for anyone pregnant or not and will state it is a joke that they prioritise deliveroo/just eat drivers before the people in their establishment sitting in to eat and needs to change as when food arrived eventually at the table was luke warm or cold for most others needing sent back or worse as also my wife being coeliac found contaminates from other foods in her fries and had to stop, can't talk to the staff cause they were barely present and prioritising organising bigger tables. Like I said usually are good and on top of their game but today was not that day unfortunately. Hopefully next time we come back will be a better experience like we are use to.

    The food was not as usual. I ordered hot cook sandwiche, the chicken has to be contained Nashville sauce where my sandwich did not had or it was very little that I didn't taste and the chips were undercooked.

    Good experience, the music was very loud making people talk louder to be heard, it was also very busy with football fans so the noise is understandable. The servers (can’t remember their names but both started with A) were brilliant very attentive despite how busy it was. Food was nice, good portion sizes.

    The food was nice but the fries were cold and at £4.50 for a side of onion rings I really did anticipate we’d receive more than 4! I hate having to complain but I did let the server know I was unhappy and she did apologise. I realised upon leaving the restaurant that I’d actually been over charged as my burger and soft drink should have qualified for the lunch special price but instead I was charged individually for each item so paid considerably more than I should. Overall the food was good and the service from the server was good but there were definitely some negatives that made a rare date lunch a little disappointing.

    Went to Bucks to celebrate my 50th birthday. We felt felt very welcome from the moment we stepped inside. We were seated immediately and asked if we were comfortable. Within 5 minutes I was presented with a drink and wished a Happy Birthday which was lovely. Our server Sophie was so nice and happy she made our whole experience so relaxed and pleasant. 5 stars just for Sophie. The food was absolutely stunning.
