This is our favourite Sunday lunch venue in the Newcastle area. They offer beautifully tender roast beef plus nice starters and deserts.

Lunch today was fantastic. It's been a while since we've been to the Bucks Head but we'll be heading back soon. Service was friendly, efficient and professional - absolutely spot on. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable. One of our party was late, one wanted only a starter and another asked if he could have his choice teamed... More

Fist time in Buck's Head for many years. Lovely warm atmosphere - staff helpful. The food was of a good quality and well presented. Slighly disappointed at a very average choice of dishes. But no complaints and would certainly return again

We have been many times and always enjoy the food. Very comfortable and warm atmosphere. Usually choose something different on the menu each time - never been disappointed.

We have eaten in the Bucks Head on several occasions over recent months. One is not particularly attracted by the outward appearance of the building, but inside it is cosy, relaxing and atmospheric. Service and food on all occasions has been excellent, and reasonably priced too. Varied menu to suit many tastes, and some delicious desserts.Highly recommended.
