Portion sizes were small and too much emphasis on drizzled, shavings and sauce which looked lovely but made it not filling enough. Those is the only thing as everything else was lovely.

My wife and I were staying at the nearby Fieldings Cottages to do a travel piece for a local magazine, and chose the Buck as an ideal place to eat, being only minutes away from our accommodation. We were impressed by the quality and value of the food, and the cheerful service. The place also had a nice warm feel, and seemed to be full - on a Friday evening. We would definitely go again.

Food was good quality. Steak was slightly over cooked - more med/well than medium but the peppercorn sauce was excellent. The panna cotta dessert was absolutely delicious. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere very pleasant. Drinks were reasonably priced and the local beers were great. We also had a bottle of excellent malbec for £20 which is very reasonable.

We find Honningham Buck great on all counts apart from the cost which we feel is excessive for what after all is a pub.
If the price was more reasonable then no doubt we would chose it as a venue more often

Took my mum there on Sat 30th March for a lunch time meal. Very good quality food and service. Thought the menu had a good wide variety which would suit most people's tastes (we had difficulty in choosing, especially with desserts!). Ambiance score low, as (surprisingly) not very busy at all - only one other couple in the restaurant, and maybe one or two small families (that we could see) in the main bar area. Can't comment on the wine selection as I was not drinking that day (and wine menu was not offered anyway). Overall, would still highly recommend.

A lovely meal to celebrate a birthday. We were greeted with a warm welcome. It was a Monday lunch time and early on, so we were one of only a couple of tables in. The service was fabulous, not too quick and not too slow. The staff were friendly, attentive and professional. We had a couple of questions about the menu and the lady who served us was very knowledgable and made recommendations. Along with the adult meals, I ordered a dish from the children’s menu and although they didn’t have the dip that went with the meal, the chef made an alternative which was delicious and went down a treat with my son. The food was excellent and service was excellent! This is the third time I have been and I will definitely be going again, and recommending to friends and family.

Excellent service. On arrival they spotted that my elderly mother-in-law would need a seat while we waited for our table and arranged another table for us to sit at. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. A big thumbs up from all of us.

We went for Sunday lunch after visiting on several previous occasions. My friend and I agreed that the starters were both superb. We both had roast. The beef was very good. Unfortunately my friends chicken was a little on the dry side.
The puddings we chose were excellent. A very chocolaty brownie and a orange cake. The pistachio foam was missing, but foams are generally uninspiring so wasn't missed!
And french rose wine. Delicious.

Birthday Meal with friends get together. The food was amazing. It is every time i go. perfect presentation. Large drink menu which us perfectly priced. The atmosphere feels amazing, it feels like posh dining in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The bar always alway you to have a more relaxed dining experience, it is the best of both worlds. I will definitely be going back. I love the dinner and sunday lunch. I keep going back and i know that’s a sign it is really good. I highly recommend going you won’t regret it.

Unfortunately, we sat in the bar area on Sunday and one of our group, who has a hearing problem and is in the early stages of dementia, found the noise very difficult and he was unable to finish eating his meal.
You were very busy and had I realised there might have been a problem, I would have asked for a table in the dining area.
Not your problem though, and the food and service was very good as always. We shall certainly return and recommend you!

Had a lovely evening and would definitely come again. My only gripe would be the chicken breast meal I had was not sufficient as there was only sauce and a few mushrooms with it. It needed more veg to make it satisfying. Also it was very salty.
Desserts were lovely.

It’s been sometime since we were last at Honingham Buck,(believe there’s been a change of ownership),and we both agreed that the food was excellent; better than we remember from last time. The menu was unfussy and not over full! The service was just how we like it; not intrusive & very helpful. Overall a very nice meal, very nice service, & great value. We will be back.
