I was wrong. It is only partly being converted to a chicken restaurant. The remaining section of the building is still the Buck pub, and now open again.

I recently visited The Buck for the first time in 25 years & it hasn't really changed. This pub benefits from both a front & rear outside drinking area, & being on a pedestrianised street it is very pleasant to just sit at the front on the becnhes & watch the world go by. Inside it can get rather busy as you go down a corridor to a serving hatch on the right. The bar area is tiny & if you are slightly claustrophobic then this may not be the place for you. 2 large drinking areas to the left & rear & a snug behind the bar area. Dark woods & low beams add to the cosiness with historic black & white photos on some of the walls. Tetley Bitter, Old Speckled Hen & Bombadier all available on my visit. Toilets were dirty & smelly which was disappointing as the pub had only been open about an hour.

Historic town-centre pub, the only one worth going out of your way for in Ormskirk. Formerly a Walkers house, it's now owned by Tetley and is one of their Heritage inns, but original Walkers signage remains, including the impressive Art Deco Walker's sign attached to the front of the building, and the original lamp above the doorway. The pub is L-shaped from the outside and has unusual diagonal supporting buttresses. Once inside the pub is still characterful, having retained most of its separate areas. The long entrance corridor has the bar on its right and a separate vault on the other side of this.
A medium-sized snug is to your left, with a doorway that has disappointingly been opened out a little but not enough to destroy the separateness of the room. At the end of the entrance corridor is a large lounge. The bar and the rooms are packed with bric-a-brac, adding to the cosy feel, and there are a couple of fires. Also, there is a lot of exposed brickwork.
There are a few concessions to modernity such as TV sports, gambling machines and piped music, but these cannot detract from the overall rustic feel of the pub.
Beer-wise, it's not great, with only Tetley Bitter and Bombardier available on my visit- Ormskirk isn't know for its real ales. That said, these are generally well-kept and it's better than some of its neighbours.
Definitely worth a visit for the interior, would be improved if the real ale selection could increase. Would recommend this as the pub to visit if in Ormskirk.
