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 & Vicki Jowett have now been at The Buck Inn for just over a year, and have refurbished most of the property, including all the bedrooms and bathrooms, exterior, bar and eating area, and earlier this year, put in a brand new kitchen. Next year they plan to do the function room.

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.”
