Stayed here whilst visiting family. Bedroom and bathroom spotlessly clean with comfy bed. Excellent breakfast, good choice and freshly cooked. Enjoyed our evening meals in the bar, tasty food and a very friendly atmosphere. Very much looking forward to returning in July and have no hesitation in recommending this lovely pub.

Just returned from our third stay at this excellent pub. A comfortable room, good food, good beer, a beautiful setting - and, best of all for us, dog friendly. We've recommended it to friends who've visited and all agreed with our description of it. We'll certainly be back.

We've just returned from another wonderful short break at The Buck Inn. The staff are wonderfully friendly and very accommodating. They are very pet friendly, and brought our dog with us. Their allowance to the needs of pets is very helpful, and re-assuring to know that they will do everything to make the whole stay so enjoyable and relaxing. The... More

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.

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
