“Very welcoming!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We phoned ahead to book a table as we wanted to check if dogs were allowed..which they were in certain areas. There was a great choice of food, including a wide choice on the specials board. There were plenty of people in-some just for a drink and some eating like us. If vegetarian, there was an imaginative choice, and I'm told the game pie was very good! If passing again, we will certainly go back! The staff were friendly and service good

We were staying at The Grange guest house over the Bank Holiday weekend and walked to The Buck on Friday evening for dinner. We don't eat meat and were impressed with the choice of fish and veggie options. We both went for a smoky bean chilli which was lovely. It arrived piping hot which I love. Nothing worse than luke warm food. Good portions and very tasty. The Belgian chocolate dessert was indulgent but hey - " we're on holiday". The service was good, the staff polite and food arrived quickly. My only complaint is that they don't serve food on a Sunday evening so we had to eat elsewhere but that's another story!!

We were visiting the area, and decide that The Buck looked like a nice place to eat. The food was lovely, and was served quickly! The waiting on staff were young, but very good at their job.
Overall very pleased with our choice.

Excellent food and 2 courses for £8.95 , how can you go wrong !! Highly recommended

Fantastic 3 nights at The Buck with the family. Great hosts and a friendly, helpful and cheerful team made our stay relaxing, comfortable and highly enjoyable. The rooms were great. Me and my wife had a recently refurbished double with its own en suite bathroom complete with roll top bath (big enough for two). Parents had the twin aspect room on the corner of the building which was also excellent and my brother had the other double.
The pub has recently been renovated and the lounge is cosy and comfortable without becoming a cliche olde worlde kind of place. There were four cask ales on and the cask marque which the pub holds is well deserved as the beer was great. We ate at the pub all three nights. Great range of food, also catering for any special dietary requirements. My brother has severe gluten intolerance and to have a real choice as well as a full gluten free English breakfast was something special. Local game is often on the menu... It's often brought in by very local suppliers and If you like pies, there's a great choice, all sorts of game, rabbit, pigeon, as well as the usual steak and ale etc. great veggie choice and fantastic starters and deserts. If you're in this neck of the woods, come into The Buck. It's everything a great pub and restaurant should be.... Stay a night for best results.

We were staying in Thornton le Dale, and decided to try the pub for a drink, the customers were friendly as was the staff, but the seating are we chose didn't have that great feel about it, nothing wrong with the drink but I didn't get the atmospheric vibe.
Sunday lunch time we decided to give it another whirl and have our lunch there. We sat by the window in front of the fire, totally cosy atmosphere, complete polar opposite of our first impression. The food, wow, we decided upon the sunday lunch menu, all I can say is it was very generous, tender and really well presented. The prices were very reasonable. Would I return? Well yes, I'd be back tomorrow if I lived closer.

Stayed 2 nights in October – we were new to the area and chose it partly because very handy for Puffing Billy steam train trip from Pickering to Whitby (recommended!) Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere and very good, quick service. Food was very good quality of the unpretentious pub type, and great value. Breakfasts also excellent! Lovely comfortable bed. A ‘sell-everything’ shop just across the road was a plus – just one minute to get our morning paper. We gather from the hosts that The Buck is due for a refurb soon (our room already refurbed and very nice) so I guess it’ll be even nicer next time – hoping to return around same time next year.
