What a pub. Great beer, great staff! When my brother comes from London we always come into the Buccaneers, under new ownership for our trip today, what a treat. 10/10.

Lovely dog friendly pub, can't do enough to make eating experience what you want, always ask if not on menu because if they have ingredients they will give you what you want. Eat in the bar if you want your dog with you or in...the restaurant dog free. New owner, John, just taken over and takes notice of what his customers say, we found that out first hand, because he changes things around after positive remarks.More

Visited this the buccaneer after hearing it was under new management There was 7 of us, We ordered a burger chips, lasagne and chips, 2 x fish and chips (more like whale, it was huge) Cajun chucking burger, chips, 2 hot dog (kids) All the...food was absolutely amazing, the fish was the best fish I ever had in a pub/restaurant environment, like I said it was huge! We have a few allergies in our part and when we mentioned this the manager told us everything is made to ordered so can be made however we like (very impressed, usually at a pub it’s a case of “sorry it’s already made up we just cook it so choose something else” attitude) Despite this we didn’t seem to be waiting long either so again a huge box ticked! Cajun chicken burger was the perfect blend, obviously everyone is different but for my friend who is very picky and always complains didn’t actually complain! I nearly fell off my chair Only negatives and I’m being really picky! I wasn’t a fan of the home made tata sauce! My mum loved it but not for me And there was lots of rubbish in the beer garden but the manager said when we walk in about that, apologies for the rubbish someone is coming today When we left it was being cleared away All in all it was a loverly meal and we booked our selfs in for a Sunday lunch while we where there so watch this spaceMore

Had our Christmas lunch this year. Very busy but well organised. The food was loverly, we all enjoyed our meal. The staff were polite and friendly. Use this pub a lot and have always been pleased with the service and quality of the food.

Our group of 4 diners had the following faults: 2 had no bacon with the Liver & Bacon (Trade Description Act ?) , 3 had undercooked vegetables, closer to raw than al dente. This is our first but unfortunately last visit, we were misled by...the numerous reviews online. Wednesday 20 November 2019.More

We booked for four. We turned up 5 minutes EARLY but they apologised because ten people had just turned up who hadn’t booked and they couldn’t cook for 14 people. Pretty sure the tradition is to honour your booking before walk ups.More

Thanks for your review but I think you have the wrong place. We have not had any recent walk ins of 10 and would certainly not have put a booking behind a walk in. You dont actually state what date you visited nor what/if you...More

Rarely write a good review on trip advisor but it's a pleasure to make the change, This is our local so we are regulars. Hospitality and welcome are second to none, kitchen manned by someone who can cook and appreciates good food. Far more important...to me than Michelin stars. Plain fayre. A bonus in my book. Good but limited selection of hand pulled ales. Portion size options on some dishes. Don't read my review just go there and eat. You won't be disappointed.More

Hi, I believe that they do Sunday lunches. I suggest that you phone them directly to confirm this and make a reservation.
