We had a booked a table for a meal a few weeks before our holiday and when we walked up to Reeth on Friday we were shocked to find the pub closed. They had made no attempt to contact us and it left us with...2 children struggling to find a meal on a Friday nightMore

Limited starters and only pizza for main course. No mention of this when we booked. Waitress forgot to bring menus and take order. We had to chase. Only 2 choices for a bottle of white wine. Took 45 minutes for starters to arrive. We should...have left.More

Booked the Buck three weeks in advance because the menu was varied. When we arrived we were handed a menu of starters & just pizzas. Three of the five starters were unavailable & two of the pizzas. When my calzone pizza did arrive it was...burnt and I mean I had to chop the top off to find very little filling. Just lots of dough. Really disappointed as I had booked my last meal out for a while with my sister who has cancer. Very poorMore

Rang to book a table and was not told they only serve pizza. When we arrived it was too late to go elsewhere. Surprise Surprise we had a pizza. It was poor. Seen more filling in a tooth. The place was deserted and I know...why. RUBBISH.More

We have been to the Buck twice in the last week with different members of the family who had travelled a distance. The first time on a Sunday we waited 1hour 10 minutes to receive our meal. When the meal finally arrived the Sunday dinners...were good but the wait was terrible and we were not served in turn. The three chidren were fed up and starving and had a late 2 hour journey home afterwards. In the past we have enjoyed meals at the Buck so on Saturday, with different visitors, we tried again having been promised the service would be better. The drinks were served quickly but that was it. The menu was entirely pizzas with some starters and a childrens menu. One of our party is vegetarian and there was only a starter suitable for her. After an HOUR we finally got the in adequate food, despite promises that it would be quick. Perhaps they were trying to be kind saying that they could accommodate us but they should have said they were not serving meals because of staff shortages (1 chef only). All our party had to eat extra food when we got home. We will not be back until we are reliably informed that the place has improved a great deal. Very, very disappointing.More

We ordered 2 pizzas for takeaway, they were EXCEPTIONAL ! This is the kind of pizza we LOVE. Super fresh, zero grease. Great quality ingredients. Staff were professional and friendly. COVID guidelines were strictly in place, which definitely makes us feel comfortable coming back for...a sit in meal. We look forward to tasting the rest of the menu and have high hopes, as the standard served to us has set the bar high. Great jobMore

This was our first visit on Sunday to the Buck since it was reopened. We thought we'd try the Sunday lunch and how pleasantly surprised we were with the quality. We'd always liked the buck and it's homely tasty menu coupled with the cosy atmosphere...in the bar by the open fire. But they have now taken the food to another level. It was superb, great choices and quality. It puts The Buck up there with the other quality local Sunday lunch venue's. It may be a little more expensive but it's worth it!!More

We live 2 minutes walk from the Buck, and have watched skips filling up over the past couple of months so it was with some trepidation we decided to have a lunchtime refresher alter the weekly market. Inside it was much the same but had...had a general freshing up. The young staff were welcoming and friendly but Covid regulations reassuringly seriously. The beer was fresh and bright and we were told it had been re-piped. The offerings were Landlord, Blacksheep, Wainwright, Old Perculiar and a red Shepherd Neame- something for everyone. The light bite menu looked tempting as did their own range of speciality coffee. The black board menu had pub favourites, but the main menu bead definitely Italian, plus a Sunday lunch menu all again tempting but perhaps a bit pricey for some people but reflect the cost of running a pub in the Dales. However if the quality is good they could be good value and we intend to give them a try soon.More

Popped in on A Sunday night in March and expected one man and his dog. Was quite busy with a bunch of people having a pool tournament. Nice atmosphere. Traditional Yorkshire Inn feel in the front room. Bar, coal fire etc. Had black sheep ale...and was a perfect pint. They do the usual hearty Inn menu but also a separate pizza and kebab menu so popped back for tea the next day to eat a home made pizza and cheesy home made chips. Spot on! Also a bonus for being dog friendly and a regular having a friendly dog to meet visitors!More
