Sister to Soho pizzerias, this city centre bar dishes up fried chicken alongside beers, bourbons and cocktails, all to a rock 'n' roll soundtrack.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Geographically on the corner of West Regent and Wellington, but in its soul Buck’s is well below the Mason-Dixon line. It's all about the Southern fried chicken here. Some of the nods towards authenticity are expected (PBR on tap, chicken and waffles), others are less common (their own, proper American-style filter coffee), while some just show an admirable dedication to the cause (more than 50 hot sauces). A solid start is the buttermilk fried chicken – simple, nicely seasoned and moist. A far more serious contender with Nashville hot sauce is also available. Wings are popular, with Korean BBQ and Chinese styles widening the appeal. It’s cool that they stick to their guns too: apart from some veggie options, it's all chicken – no burgers, no ribs, no red meat at all. And they’ve got the good stuff (rock, roll, blues) on the stereo and just enough Americana adorning the walls. Special mention for the image of Colonel Sanders, with graffiti devil horns, that peers in from outside.
