The Buck Inn Information


The Buck Inn is a traditional country inn, with an open fire and large beer garden, serving home cooked food 7 days a week at both lunch and dinner. You can watch cricket on the village green, or quoits in the garden, during the Summer months. Dogs are welcome in the bedrooms and bar. If places of outstanding natural beauty are your idea of heaven, then a day or two scouring the dales with their medieval dry-stone walls and barns will be right up your street. By contrast, the moorland above is as wild and open as it comes. There are several spectacular waterfalls, from the very popular and well known Aysgarth Falls and Hardraw Force to the more secluded but no less beautiful waterfall at West Burton. On clear days a drive to the top of Wensleydale, Wharfedale, Coverdale or Swaledale will reward you with some truly breathtaking views - Brimham Rocks are quite amazing. The Buck Inn has teamed up with local anglers to acquire exclusive access to a beautiful mile and a half stretch on the River Ure which is a short drive from The Buck Inn. We will happily arrange day passes for guests to enjoy a day's Fly Fishing on the river, which is kept well-stocked. Having spent a long day taking in the local attractions, you can unwind in the small, cosy bar by our open fire. Our bar offers a selection of well-kept real ales including the locally brewed Black Sheep and Theakstons, and a range of guest options from independent brewers. We also have a good selection of quality wines by the glass or bottle. All food is freshly prepared on the premises, using locally sourced produce whenever possible.
