It’s been a quiet few months with the doors closed, but we’ve still been busy behind the scenes at the Buck Inn, ensuring everything is ready to welcome you back. Some of our rooms have had a makeover, the bar’s had a paint, we’ve created a residents’ lounge and of course there’s been a lot of deep cleaning!

The team are looking forward to welcoming you back from 4th July onwards.

The health and safety of our guests and staff is our primary concern and we are taking the necessary steps to ensure that social distancing and additional hygiene measures are in place in accordance with official guidance.

In order to keep our staff and guests safe we have implemented a number of changes to our usual processes, to enable our guests to dine and stay with confidence, without missing out on any of the usual benefits to a visit to The Buck Inn.

Below are some of measure we have put in place.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to welcoming you soon!
