user reviews of Buck Hotel, Richmond

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Our home for the night - perfect for ramblers - the room is equipped with a boot tray.

Best real ale bar of our entire trip in the Dales. They had five different ones on - I started with an excellent Landlord and I never thought I would say this, but the Copper Dragon just about tipped it.

Food was very good too - and the staff were wonderful.

A gem.

Just spent a week on holiday in Reeth and received a warm welcome in the Buck. Good staff, good selection of beer and the food was better than your average pub food - I had partridge, pigeon and venison during the week - all tasty. Only negative was the bad-tempered Man Utd fans who gave us evils during the football on tv - not very friendly. Highly recommended pub.

We live in Swaledale, but I'm giving these comments after visiting various pubs in the Dales. These pubs were mostly average (3 Horse Shoes, Wensley is very good) and emphasised just how good the Buck at Reeth is. We are regulars and since the place changed hands around Easter time 2010 it has become the best ale house in the region. Like one of the other comments I've yet to get a bad pint. Yes, it's great to see a landlord who really cares about the beer and drinks the stuff from the same pump as you do. The guest ales have been superb with just two in 12 months not to my taste. The daft thing is, even the Guinness and lager drinkers say it is superior - how do other pubs knack up keg lager?
They introduced real pizzas about six months ago which has proved a massive hit. Real pizza and real pint wonderful.
Last but not least, our whole family goes to the Buck, as it has a great atmosphere. Lets hope it doesn't change hands for a long while.

Since the new landlord took over in March, we are now regular visitors to the Buck. He is a real ale fanatic and actually drinks the ale from the pumps in front of your very eyes!!! There are five handpulls usually with Copper Dragon Bitter, TT Landlord, Black Sheep, Deuchars IPA and a guest. The guests have been great such as River Catcher and Wylam Gold being my personal favourites.
I've never had a bad pint.
The bar is the preferred choice of the locals, very comfortable and friendly. The pool table was removed during the summer so we had good food in that area. I understand that the pool table will be back at the begining of October for the winter. Pool and darts keep these rural pubs going during the winter. One of the locals told us the Buck is also the best house for Guinness and lager, never mind real ale.
There's always a good atmosphere and the fire is on of the weather is poor. Well worth the visit.

An 18th century Coaching Inn with more of a hotel feel than a pub although it does do a job and ticks a few boxes without leaving any great overall impression.. The carpeted main bar centres on an arched brick fireplace but overall, apart from a few token old local photos (including one of the pub in 1922) there isn�t a great deal of character about the place. There is a dartboard in the main bar and a separate open room with pool table, flat screen TV and pictures of the local football team and brass bands. The noise from this section (both people and TV) does intrude into the main bar but to be frank, the place is a bit on the sedate side at this time of the year so it did at least add a bit of life and colour. One can imagine that the summer months see a different picture regarding usage and I would think it would be tricky getting a seat or table when it gets busy with ramblers. I am assuming that the full ale range isn�t available during the off peak months as 2 of the 6 pumps were unused. The ubiquitous Black Sheep Best was complimented by Hambleton Best (a new one on me and not seen anywhere else on my travels during the week) and Old Rosie cider. A further pump had a reversed Copper Dragon clip but I gather they do always have one stocked. As the beers go it is probably the best of Reeth�s pubs and certainly worth dropping by for but by contrast it was also probably my least favourite for character and ambience.
