Great food, fast service and great atmosphere. The buttermilk chicken was incredible. Kinda like how KFC chicken should taste and look according to the what you see in the ads rather than the disappointing stuff that KFC actually sells

Really enjoyed our meal and I can’t wait to come back and try something else on the menu! :)
Highly recommend booking in advance they are a busy little place so it saves any disappointment if they have no availability.

Food was gorgeous and cocktails was very nice, was mad busy and had a a little delay with a round of drinks and the waitress took them of the bill which was not needed we didn’t even think was a massive delay and the overall service made up for it anyway, was a little bit noisy at times prob only slight negative

Don't eat out in December, it was bitter cold and unlike their trongate venue there's no canopy or outdoor heaters and service was slow due to being fully booked inside, overall a very poor experience.

Hey Anne - I'm really sorry your food wait was so long - this is not the standard we strive to uphold. If you could e-mail the restaurant if you'd like to join us again, I will ensure you are booked onto your table for ample time, with a discount on your bill as way of apology. I am embarrassed to learn you waited this amount of time - and we would love to make it up to you. Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback - it really helps us improve the Bucks experience for our diners.

Was early for booking and sat immediately. Served drinks and ordered food within first 5 minutes of sitting down and staff were very attentive. Food itself was not only delicious but the portion sizes were huge. Well worth the money, chicken wings were perfect for sharing and cocktails are lovely too. Was my first time going after many suggested it to me and I will be going again. Value for money is important and you get this here. Would recommend if you are a lover of chicken and want a top service, lovely atmosphere and wish to eat a lot of delicious food.

We really enjoyed our night. It had great vibes and music we love. The food was really tasty although my husband's love of spicy food was really put to the test. I've never seen hot food make him cry before! The portion sizes were great although sharing will defo be an option for our next visit.

Waited 45 mins for food, then when it finally came out it was cold - sent it back and left! The restaurant was really cold and could see other people managed to get heaters - disappointed all round!

Bucks Bar
Responded on November 28, 2021

We are really disappointed to hear of your poor experience on Saturday - we tried our best to ensure people weren't lingering with the door propped open - perhaps we need to refrain from offering table 3 on cold days. Cold food is absolutely not acceptable - all meals are cooked to order, freshly fried and plated quickly so I'm not sure how this occurred. If you would be willing to give us another shot - we'd love to have you back for some complimentary chicken - please contact us directly x
