This friendly pub was recommended by the b and b we were staying in at nearby Kirby Wiske. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was very friendly and the beer was good. Jem was the perfect mine host, attentive and obliging. Will return at the first opportunity.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, due to a large party arriving later than planned, but this was explained to us and we were given the option to cancel if we wished. We're glad that we stayed; the starters were generous and the steak and ale pies were delicious. One of our party had fish and chips -... More

Popped in for a drink after a walk with the dogs. We only had a drink and some crisps but will be back for a meal. This was one of the friendliest pubs we've been in for a long time. Staff made a fuss of the dogs, gave them treats and took time to chat to us too! Cider was... More

After visiting a former colleague in Northallerton and returning to West Yorkshire via Newby Wiske we realised that we were hungry and decided to find a local hostelry. A sandwich board at the side of the road pointed us in the direction of The Buck Inn at Maunby. On entering, what a magical find. Oak beams, roaring fire and comfortable... More

Visited on the 17th March as a couple. We had the pie and chips. How can such a humble potato turn into something amazing... Not to mention the pie. Big shout out to the chef and his/her amazing helper who was on his own that day... We wished we had returned on the sat but chose to eat somewhere else..... More

It is a while since we last visited The Buck & it has changed hands since our last visit. We need not have worried - everything was as good as before. Very welcoming host & great food. Lovely ambience & it made for a great relaxing Saturday lunchtime. We opted for the £6.95 lunchtime menu & the steak sandwiches with... More

We had lunch here today. Steak and mushroom pie with to die for chips, followed by a delicious lemon tart. The pub has a great ambience and the staff made us feel very welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Will definitely go again

We called in here on spec one Saturday night. It is a cosy place, welcome was very good and bar service very swift. The place was quiet with just one other couple and a biggish family party in the restaurant. Menu was very nice. My husband ordered the breads and oils to start - really plentiful and enough to share... More
