    We came here for a birthday treat after watching Rate My Takeaway on YouTube. The place was busy but we had our table reserved, the food was really tasty (especially the ninja burger) and we definitely recommend and we will be back. I would also recommend booking a table as it’s a busy place. 😀😀😀😀😀😀

    The portion sizes were massive. I ordered 4 wings and a main and couldn’t come close to finishing either. The venue is cramped and can’t seem to decide if it’s a bar or restaurant.

    Bucks Bar was a very friendly bar, staff went out there way to make sure you had drinks and food and service was quick considering the bar was full. It had a great chill rock and roll vibe with old classics playing in the back ground, the music wasn't too heavy as well so would recommend it to people who don't really listen to the genre. Food portions are big and a great value for money. I also recommend trying the chicken wings, they even give you a bone bag.

    We had to wait for 15 minutes past our booking time making us late for another place. A jack daniel’s and coke was brought to us instead of a Diet Coke and it was added to the bill after even after sending it back.

    I was looking forward to eating at Bucks bar after seeing several reviews. However unfortunately my experience wasn’t great the service was fine and food was brought very quick but I would have preferred it not to have been if it meant it was cooked properly. The pakora was very soft and chewy, the chilli fries were soggy and the chicken wings had lots of sauce but the chicken wasn’t great. I had a couple of other things that were not much better but they were the worst. I did let the server know it was probably the worst meal I have had in a long time. Very disappointing.

    Hi Klayre, I can only apologise you didn't enjoy your visit to Buck's Bar. The food and service is something we pride ourselves on here and this isn't the standards we strive for. We would be grateful if you could give our restaurant another try in the future. Thanks Team Buck's

    For someone who doesn’t care much for chicken I can honestly say the best chicken I’ve ever tasted! The service was outstanding very friendly waiter/waitress, the salt and chilli chips were better than the Chinese! The portion sizes are absolutely huge! And the milkshakes wow 10/10 and I defo will be going back for more chicken

    Not as good as West Regent Street, feels a bit cramped especially in the middle seats for 2. Food was lovely, be good to have Korean Chicken Wings back, were always a fav.
