The Buck Inn is a welcoming country pub overlooking the green in the beautiful village of Thornton Watlass which is at the entrance of Wensleydale, gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  It is the ideal base from which to explore this fantastic part of the country whether you are keen walkers, cyclists, sightseers or are simply looking to relax and unwind.  We welcome families and dogs, and also offer fishing and golfing breaks.

The Inn is located just a short distance from the A1 making us a great place for a stop over if you are in the area. The Buck Inn is located amongst a fantastic array of charming market towns and picturesque villages including Middleham, Masham and Harrogate.  Our restaurant and bar is great for relaxing in and offers a choice of locally brewed real ales. All our food is made on the premises, using local suppliers wherever possible.

Tony and Vicki Jowett took over The Buck Inn in May 2014 and are in the middle of a major refurbishment. The exterior, bar and eating area have been completed, along with 3 of the 5 bedrooms. The kitchen will be done next, along with the 2 remaining rooms.

Tony & Vicki have kept all the staff who worked here with the previous owners, and the whole team enjoy welcoming both regular customers and new guests to The Buck Inn.”
