Just wanted to say thanks for a lovely Sunday lunch. Looking for roast beef and yorkshires and got exactly that and then some. Lovely, lovely food. Welcoming pub and staff. Very busy (good sign!) so reservations recommended, but thank you for fitting us in today! Also recommend the sticky toffee pudding. Will come back next time we visit ribblesdale.

Called in on a cold wet afternoon, not sure if they would still be serving, but I was just in time at 2.30. Choice of sitting in bar or restaurant, all comfortable and warm. Friendly and attentive service. There are a couple of steps at the front entrance with no handrail, not sure if there is an alternative access. Nice... More

We were a party of five and we all enjoyed the food at the Buck. Fish, lasagne, chicken & gammon stack, pork steaks and cheese pie were all tasty and filling, although vegetarian options are limited. Our table was near the door (lots of comings and goings) and its 'island position' meant that there was heavy traffic with customers and... More

We were staying close by and had read mainly good reviews, so booked a table for Saturday night. The staff were lovely and friendly, service was very good, serving the meals for all eight of us together, all hot and well prepared. Too stuffed for puddings, we'll have to go back sometime!

This family owned pub/restaurant is a jewel in the crown of the Ribble Valley. Rachael and Steve provide a lovely warm welcome with good old fashioned home cooking which never fails to satisfy. You will never go home hungry from the Buck Country Pub.
