    We really enjoy going to The Honingham Buck and have been many times. The food was great, all very fresh, hot and tasty. Service was great, the waiting staff were friendly and gave recommendations for the menu. The only thing that was disappointing was that the food came out very fast. All 3 courses were out within 45 mins, there was very little time in between courses. We were looking forward to an evening enjoying the food, drinks and company, but it felt quite rushed.

    Food & service excellent; one of the best ribeye steaks ever. On an exceedingly hot day, a table with proper chairs in the dappled shade of the lovely garden, with a breeze was heaven.

    Lovely quality and local produce, just a tad on the small side and a bit pricey. Lamb rump was 4 medallions of lamb which for £24 I was a bit disappointed. The puddings were over £7 and the lemon sponge was a very thin slither. I am a slim lady and was still hungry after 3 courses. However, on a positive note, it was delicious and great quality cooking. Enjoyed our time there.

    We’ve had some lovely meals at the Buck in the past however this last one was a disappointment. The chicken in the salad was dry, fish fingers overcooked and a bit greasy. The pastry in the veg tart was tough. My crème brûlée was warm on the outer edge but very cold in the centre. Maybe being Monday the kitchen wasn’t on its usual form.

    We booked a table and room after being recommended that the food was delicious. We enjoyed an incredible three course meal in the evening with some lovely gin and tonics. All the staff were kind, friendly, welcoming and attentive. I am planning on booking a large table when our family visit Norfolk next time.

    Nice pub, service was friendly. Food was good but portions are a touch on smaller side. Cheese and biscuits was nice but really short on crackers so you can’t eat all the cheese! This is a pet hate of mine when you don’t get enough crackers! Overall was a nice place and definitely much better than last time I went couple years back. Would recommend.

    Lovely pub restaurant. A little tight around the restaurant tables but more space in the bar. Food is always lovely if you can find something without dairy. Which is a challenge every time as much as chef tries to take off the dairy. So many other places around offer a wider range for clients like me so hope they will soon offer better dairy free options (not vegan). Great little place always otherwise.
