A beautiful village pub recently fully restored with a historic beamed bar, cosy snug room & elegant restaurant. A classic English beer garden and seating area to the front are great for Al fresco drinking and dining. 8 Brand new bedrooms opened during the summer 2016. We are proud partners with Lacons brewery and feature their range of top quality craft Ales.

Our food features traditional favorites as well as some interesting and great tasting contemporary dishes. Bar snacks and nibbles together with starters, mains, puddings and a children's menu ensures there is something for all tastes and occasions. From a scotch egg & a pint to a lovely 3 course celebration meal!

Again a superb evening all 4 in our party thoroughly enjoyed their food but as I always report it is overpriced. Trimming 10% off the mains and desserts would mean we would probably visit more often or perhaps a loyalty scheme could be introduced.

We booked our table because of an excellent review in the EDP and we were not disappointed. Excellent food and service, a very relaxed atmosphere and we will certainly be back.

Four of us eating so this is MY review - cannot account for others. Food OK but was expecting better for the prices charged. Far too expensive for a small village operation in my opinion. That said beer was good and service was first class, very attentive. Others in my party not so generous as me - but I said do not complain now - tell them upfront at the time, but they were too reserved to do that.! I didn't feel the need to complain as I put it down to a first experience operation - but I doubt I will be coming back in a hurry. Nothing really in the experience urges me to do that. Sorry, but maybe I am hard to please, but I have been in better establishments with better food in the local area.

Four of us met for dinner on Friday evening - we received a very friendly welcome and good advice on the merits of Lacon’s beers. The table was comfortably sized and was out of the way so allowed for quiet conversation. Our food was excellent - we all chose different things and everyone was very happy with their meal. Service was efficient and friendly without being intrusive. All in all a great evening out.

Attractive dishes on menu, excellent quality of food, very good service, dining room with sufficient soft furnishing to maintain low noise levels, would be hard to improve upon, a firm favourite with us.

This is the second time we have been and the starters and main courses are to die for. Desserts are good but did not live up to quite the same phenomenal standard. Staff were friendly and attentive on both visits. Beautiful village too!

Had not been to the Buck for a while, but still as good as ever. Friendly staff, good food and comfortable. When we asked to sit in the restaurant, which my wife thought we had requested in the booking, this was made possible by the manager

Once again hubby and I went for Sunday lunch. I had smoked haddock fish cakes for starter and he had mushroom soup, for a change I had the roast pork (no seasonal veg but with extra cauliflower/broccoli cheese) and he had roast chicken. Managed to squeeze in dessert! again I was won over by the chocolate nemesis and hubby had the creme brûlée. All in all another delicious lunch at the Honingham Buck, dare say it won't be long until we're back

This visit was rather disappointing, to the extent that we wondered if a new chef has been appointed. The starters were very good, but the main courses, and to a degree the desserts, were far from their usual standard - the pork belly was dry, with insufficient sauce (we asked for extra), and the steak, which was ordered blue, came medium, and accompanied by overcooked chips, only half of which were edible. The Eton mess was disappointing, too, with few raspberries. Having been there many times, we will give it another go, however, just in case this was a one off.

Excellent venue and superb food. I would highly recommend this place either for a business meeting or for a social gathering. Since discovering it a few months ago I have eaten there about six times already. If you like scotch eggs the ones served here are very tasty and the main courses are delicious. The desserts are out of this world.

My husband and I had a lovely meal, the food was delicious. Service was a little slow we had to wait 30 minutes before our order was taken...once the order was taken we didn't have to wait long.....some things they did run out of which in my opinion shouldn't happen on a Saturday evening, our table was booked for 7-30...we did have a lovely enjoyable meal.

Visited on a Saturday in the early evening for dinner and was very pleased with the overall experience. The service, especially the speed at which the food was delivered to the table, was exceptional and the food itself was cooked, presented and tasted very good. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, but not in a pushy over the top way, and the table and surroundings were clean, bright and quite plush. This is a very nice gastro pub that’s definitely worth another visit in the future.

We did like the food, BUT, we did not think it was good value. Portions were very small. When the main meal was brought to the table, we were expecting a side dish of vegetables, but nothing else arrived.

We had Sunday lunch here last week after researching them online. The reviews were spot on, the food is way above average pub lunch and very good value for money. We had an excellent meal and received really good service. Highly recommended.
