“Just love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2014 NEW

Have been to the Buck several times - food is excellent and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and staff are great. Suggest you give it a try. We are going on Christmas day - went last Christmas day too and it's lovely.

“A lovely relaxed evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014

I visited the Buck last week for a meal out with a local group. We had heard some reports that suggested that the meals might be a little too fancy for us - small portions with lots of decoration to fill the plates - but found our meals really good, plenty of food, well cooked and served. The vegetables were plentiful and there was a good variety. The atmosphere was relaxed and although the main course seemed to arrive a long time after the starters had been cleared away we had plenty to chat about so it didn't matter too much. When the main course was served (very mixed choices but pre ordered) everyone's choice was served quickly and efficiently. I had visited The Buck regularly when it was under the previous management and had been disappointed when it changed hands but feel much happier now that we will become 'regulars'.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2014

A group of 8 of us ate here last night after reading about it in Yorkshire Life.Run by a young couple this is an excellent village pub serving top class food.There is a good selection of locally sourced dishes and particular mention to the cheese soufflé and the venison.It has a nice atmosphere and would definitely go back.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014 via mobile

A bit of a trek but well worth the journey.
We visited at lunch time and received a very warm welcome. The first cold day of the year and we were greeted with an open fire and fresh flowers in abundance creating a lovely atmosphere. An excellent choice of dishes and all were served piping hot. Homemade warm bread was delicious. Prices are reasonable and the 'bar nibbles' menu was a good idea for anyone calling in for a drink. Shortbread with coffee was to die for. An excellent lunch. Can't wait to return and sample more dishes.

“White Onion and Potato Soup 'to die for!'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2014

This is an excellent gesture pub in Maunby, near Thirsk.
The choice is good and reasonably priced.
My starter of white onion and potato soup was delicious and the use of pre-heated cast iron dishes ensured that the soup stayed piping hot to the last spoonful! My brother had a plentiful pot of mussels for starter which he said were excellent.
My belly pork main was superb, accompanied by old-style dripping fried chips.

Highly recommended to anyone who is in the area!
