    Food was great, proper comfort food with lots of options for all tastes. The bar had a great atmosphere. The service was very attentive, although at points it felt overly attentive (& as though we were being rushed out). For context we booked a table, the booking slot was 1hr 15mins around the 40min mark I counted 5 times the server came back to check if we were finished our food & the plate was taken away while I was still chewing. We were well on track to be finished within the allocated time slot & provably would have stayed the full 1hr & 15mins & ordered more drinks or dessert but we felt so rushed that it ruined the experience for us somewhat. The food was great & staff were lovely but definitely worth being aware the attentiveness can go too far when it comes to service

    Book led as a birthday treat for friend, mentioned on booking. Birthday wasn't even acknowledged by person who greeted us or servers. Food was good apart from the £5 coleslaw that was pretty basic, and half a bowl. Very little interaction from staff, even to see how our food was.
    Edinburgh - Bucks Bar Grindlay StreetResponded 5 days ago
    Good afternoon. I would like to apologize for the Birthday comment being missed by us as this is definitely something we like to pick up and congratulate to our guests. I do hope that your friend had a great Birthday and can not apologize enough for this. We do pride ourselves on our great customer service and it saddens me that this again was not given to you on this occasion. We would love the chance to be able to welcome you back with a £10 gift voucher so that you can experience our 5 star service. We do believe that everyone should be treated with 5 star service on every occasion, so i would like to look into this a little further. If you wouldn't mind, could you please let us know which day and time you dined with us? Again, my sincere apologies and best wishes. Bucks team
