The new owners have tastefully refurbished all their rooms to a high standard. I had the single and it overlooked the green where they regularly play cricket. The room and bathroom are both good sizes. I had a comfortable stay but it is a noisy pub and the background noise of TV's in other rooms and another guest snoring for... More

Thank you for your positive comments about the bedroom and bathroom. I am sorry that you did not have a better night's sleep, due to the noise from other guests. We do intend to put some new bedroom doors on this year, so hopefully that will help the noise issues. More

We really enjoyed a delicious lunch sitting in the garden of this pub. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the service was first class. We enjoyed hearing about the matches that the pub played against other teams. The game was outdoor quoits. The little village was also most attractive and has a cricket Pitch running through the centre... More

First stayed here in the 1990s, on my way to Teesside Airport, so chose it again to break up a journey down south. I remember it as a friendly and comfortable pub in a pleasant location. The new A1 confused me (should have updated satnav), so missed the turning off and only found the pub after a slight detour. The... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a positive review, which will hopefully give other people a good idea of what to expect from The Buck Inn. We have taken on board your comments about the steak & ale pie, and I do agree with the fact that the current presentation is not a true pie!... More

We - that's myself, my wife, my two daughters and mother-in-law- stopped off here for dinner on the way back from Fountains Abbey to our holiday cottage near Reeth.

Stayed for two nights, meeting with friends. Our room was recently modernised and very comfortable. Attractive village around a pretty village green, friendly pub with well-kept beer, and excellent pub food. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding. We had a room on the ground floor overlooking the village green. The room was of an excellent size, extremely comfortable bed, lovely linen, fantastic bathroom and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was top class. Lovely garden area to the rear. Lovely setting and faultless.
