    The salt and chilli was literally just covered in a cheap curry sauce! Really wasn't the greatest! The macaroni tasted straight out of heniz tin! The portions are huge! And value for money! The staff were helpful! The seating was a bit cramped and next to the toilet traffic wasn't ideal especially as there was an awkward additional chair placed next to our table.

    Sat outside on a Saturday night. Food was tasty as usual but was warm, not hot when it finally reached us 30 minutes after ordering. Ambience outside is just an endless stream of people trying to do a walk-in and hovering about next to your table while you try to eat. Waitress was over zealous in trying to clear away our plates to the point of standing next to my friend while she was still chewing with plenty of food on her plate, asking her if she was finished. No offer of dessert. Just felt like you didn't want us there.

    The food and drink was excellent! Huge portions and very reasonably priced. The only thing that put a bit of a dampener on it was that we had the table for an hour and a half, as per the T&C's, and our food order took almost an hour to come, leaving us with little time to eat and actually savour the food. The plates were cleared away and we were asked if we wanted anything else. We ordered a round of drinks, but we're then told by another member of staff that we would have to have them by the bar. I would have thought that, as the food took so long to come out, that the original allotted time would have been extended. We ended up cancelling the drinks order. Apart from that, we did enjoy our meal.

    I absolutely love bucks bar. Long time fan and regular diner. So much so this dining experience was for a friend who had never been. We both absolutely loved the food however I have noticed between this dining experience and the last one that some of the portion sizes of chicken have reduced as well as the amount of Mac and cheese. For example. The BBQ waffle and some other waffles, such as the flamin mac would have been completely topped with mac and cheese and the chicken would cover the whole waffle. Visibility not so much on the last two occasions. Hope Bucks aren’t becoming complacent and stingy. 100% recommend!
