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.

Awful food. After seeing the Facebook page and video of the food I booked a table for 2 on Monday evening. On arrival staff very friendly, we were given hand written menus, we ordered our food. The food reminded me of school dinners, lumpy mash and swede, the side dish to accompany the lamb shank was deep fried cauliflower! Not... More

We were staying at a holiday cottage across the road so this was a natural choice. We were made so welcome by all the staff - the customer service was excellent. We suspected the portions were huge so just went for mains. We all loved our food which was top quality. Very reasonably priced. Thanks for a lovely evening, all.

We have just spent a week at Paythorne visiting family in Skipton and walking in the beautiful surrounding country side. We ate at the Buck 3 times during last week and I must say that Rachel and the team made us feel most welcome.

After a long day walking in Settle with our 8 and 5 year old, we spotted a sign off the main road and decided to drive up as we had a long drive home and were all hungry. We were a bit unsure if we would get a table, as it was tea time, and a Sunday, my husband nipped... More
