We stayed at the Buck for 4 nights. Room very comfortable, spotless and nicely decorated. Food good - we ate there every evening. Service was exceptional, nothing seemed too much for Alison Andy and their team.

During our week's stay in Thornton Le Dale (myself, wife and little dog) we visited The Buck Hotel 3 times - twice for just drinks and once for an evening meal. So very friendly staff and a lovely place in general. We never went into the main dining area; I once went into the games room, twice sat in the... More

Called in on the of chance and decided to have some food. Pie and ham soup was nice for starter and steak for main was very nice and quite a size with all the trimmings. Had a good pint of Budweiser which also helps when not knowing what the pub is like. The staff were friendly and helpful. Clean toilets... More

On my recent visit my husband's meal of fish cake starter and chicken bacon and leak pie was perfect but my rump steak was not great. It was quite tough a small piece and quite bland. The staff were friendly and prices reasonable. Would go again but not have steak

We stay in Thornton-le-Dale two or three times a year and always make a point of dining at The Buck on each visit. From the outside it looks a little austere and "local" but turn right once through the front door (left leads to a livelier "games* room) and you enter a smallish bar and dining area - where you...

We visited for a 1 night mid week break after a fleeting visit in the winter. Our expectations were met as the accommodation, food and staff were fantastic. A warm welcoming place to stay! We enjoyed Room 1 which had a lovely roll top bath, great for easing away the aches from our motorbike ride! Would definitely recommend and visit... More
