“Currently staying around the area on holiday, after taking a random drive through some country lanes to see what beautiful places I could find around the area, The Higher Buck looked amazing from the outside and decided we had to book in and try it, we came for a Sunday roast, our favourite food, but we have never tasted a meal like it, the beef melted in your mouth, the Yorkshire perfect and homemade, the veg was beautiful, and the staff were all great, I would recommend everybody to try here, I can’t wait to come back”

“We came last night and enjoyed a fantastic meal, I had the duck salad for starter and the fillet steak for main which were perfect! The staff were all very attentive and the service excellent even considering they were full booked everything was on point!”

“We arrived without a booking but they could see how hungry we all were so squeezed us in. The children’s meals were delicious and devoured as was my beef wellington. Thank you to all the staff for being so warm and welcoming.”
