Buck Inn

Thornton Watlass, Ripon, HG4 4AH
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 have now been at the Buck Inn for 2 years, and have just completed a total refurbishment of the property. This has included all bedrooms and bathrooms, the exterior and beer garden, the bar, and a brand new kitchen. The most recent job was a complete updating of The Long Room – a function room and dining area, overlooking the village green, where cricket is played during the Summer, and where cows can be seen grazing the outfield!
