Bucks Head

  • Welcome to our website

    We look forward to seeing you soon

Overlooking the village green and a pond full of ducks, this traditional pub is located in an idyllic rural setting.

Situated on the edge of the historic National Trust property Knole Park, the Bucks Head attracts a broad spectrum of loyal customers who enjoy the informal, cosy atmosphere.

The house is everything you would hope for in an old village pub - oak beams, roaring log fires and comfy sofas, with the added bonus of excellent food. Specialities include venison, pheasant and other game dishes.

Lunch and evenings on Thursday and Fridays are renowned for our fresh fish.

Our head chef Andy Manthorpe produces excellent freshly prepared food from our ever changing menu, we display our selections on the chalk board in the bar.

The new tenants Carol and Ralph are maintaining the high standards of Helen (Carol's sister) and Michael who are enjoying their retirement from the pub trade in Greece.

The large beer garden with mature trees backs onto Knole Park and is especially popular in the summer.

This years Christmas Day lunch is almost fully booked. We have a few spaces left so if you would like to join us on this special day please call or email us as soon as possible.
