    Roasting day. Sat upstairs, no windows open. Took nearly 10 min to asked if we wanted a drink. Asked for another at dinner and it never came.

    Bucks Bar - TrongateResponded 2 days agoHello Darrin, Due to building constraints our windows can't open- we have two air conditioners upstairs and we do our best to maintain a good temperature. Waiting 10 minutes for a drink order is unacceptable and all of your feedback has been relayed back to our staff so we can stop this from repeating, especially during our busy periods! I'd love to book you in for a table downstairs with an extended time! Do get in touch at sophie@bucksbar.co.uk Sophie, Assistant Manager Buck's Trongate

    Food was excellent, service great, cool location. Only slight criticism was that the skin on fries were quite scrappy, and there wasn’t a lot of them, just looked bad next to the amazing burger. Other than that, really good.

    Bucks Bar - TrongateResponded 2 days agoHi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it makes a huge difference to us and we really appreciate the time it takes :) I've also fed your comments back to our kitchen team- we aim for the highest standard of food and service and it's comments like these that help us out the most. We're always more than happy to sort out our customers with some extra chips if there's any problems- thanks again and please take care and come back soon! :) -Buck's Trongate Team

    We had a table for two. Ordered food and drinks when we arrived, drinks took an extremely long time to come and then they served our food at different times. I got mine first and a whole 10mins past before my mate got his. Food was ice cold and no flavour to it what so ever. Extremely disappointing.

    Bucks Bar - TrongateResponded on June 1, 2023Hi Jordan, Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we did, I'm so sorry that you did not receive food that is up to our high standard! Your feedback has been carried onto our kitchen team, and I have personally discussed your experience with them & our front of house staff to stop this happening during our busy periods. I would love to get you guys in again for an extended table time so we can get you the Buck's experience you deserve! Contact me at: sophie@bucksbar.co.uk Thank you!

    We were sat upstairs but infortunately we were next to a party of 12 with one lady who loved the sound of her own voice, I personally dont want to hear other peoples conversations and not the conversation with the person I am with.

    5 of us visited on Sunday early evening for a birthday dinner. No starters, fortunately as the burgers & fries sure huge!! 4 had various burgers AB’s one had bbq chicken, Mac & cheese on waffles. No complaints for the food or drinks service. Would certainly go back. 3 rounds of drinks, with only one non alcoholic. Total bill £132, good value for money

    We dined at Bucks Bar at about 8 o’clock on Friday 12th May. We were having a date night as we hadn’t had one for so long. But there was a table that was very rowdy, fair enough it was a Stag Do, but they were very loud so me and my partner hardly spoke during our meal and just ate our meals and then got the bill. My partner had mentioned that the booth in front of us didn’t even finish their meals and just asked for the bill and the booth behind myself the guy was getting wound up as was my partner. I couldn’t fault Sara our waitress or the food, but I do feel as though the staff should of said something to the table. They even got a high chair out and one of the guys sat on it right by the edge of the stairs, bearing in mind they were all pretty much intoxicated it really could of been an accident waiting to happen. We were a bit gutted, as it was our first time dining at Bucks Bar. Just thought you might want to take that feedback on for the future. Thank you for a delicious meal though🐔👌🏻

    Large portions but I feel it's more of a case of quantity rather than quality. Chicken was really salty, mashed up chips & the mac & cheese I ordered wasn't great.
