The Buck Inn
Ranked #3 of 5 Malham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We found the hotel during an internet search and have found the description accurate. The B&B is set back over a stream (doggy heaven) which is not deep. The gardens are lovely as well

Staff: really nice team a warm welcome and helpful.

Accommodation: great four poster bed room with sky TV and free internet access, bed very comfortable

Noise: in the night you could hear a pin drop it was sooooo quiet

Will come again

Stayed: August 2014

Thanks to the very welcoming staff at the Buck Inn, the break was very nice, the evening meal very good (Sunday Roast and Trout Parcel ) the breakfasts were the best I have had in a long time excellant service and large hot portions the Eggs Benadict done with goose eggs (2) was lovely.The room was nice and clean a bit on the small size but I knew this before booking not sure about the size of the bathroom though had to turn around on the spot to do anything,also a very noisy bed tried not to turnover so that I did not wake the neighbours !! Also do not book a packed lunch like I did, £5.50 for a sandwich and a apple, not even a bottle of water!!.

Even so did have a lovely time. thanks again to the staff.

We made a last minute reservation, not being able to get the place we wanted in Malham, (there's only two).
When we arrived and signed in, we were taken to a single room with a double bed inside. What made it worse was that later other guests showed us their room with a 4 poster that they were paying less than we paid. they call it "Pay on Demand" and that is the second time this year that I have been ripped off by hotelliers.
We spent most of our time walking Gordale Scar on the Saturday which was brilliant, but we couldn't understand why all these 20 or so year olds stopped at the waterfall. For crying out loud my wife and I were both 63 and we climbed up.
After 4.5 hours walking we finally got back to the hotel and enjoyed a couple of good pints before dinner. The food on both evenings was of a very good standard and there was enough choice for most eaters.
Breakfst the following day was well up to scratch and apart from a lttle crowdingwas good.

Room Tip: Check to see if you are getting a sub standard (small) double room.

We stayed here for 2 nights 14th and 15th July... We were rather impressed with this place as we stopped for a pint here a couple of years previous and vowed to spend some time here. Being a Theakstons pub it is not unreasonable to expect the availability of some Theakstons beer! We arrived to the barmaid offering us a drink before showing us our room... I asked for an Old Peculiar - at which point she turned around both Theakstons hand pumps and said they were off and would not be back in until 2 days later! We expressed our disappointment as we had travelled 260 miles from London to stay in this Theakstons pub. I wasn't sure if the barmaids suggestion to go visit the Masham brewery was serious or sarcastic! So the next day we did just that anyway (60 mile round trip)... For a pub that boasts "6 real ales" when there are just 3 is a bit rich but the 3 that were available didnt really appeal... 2 Timothy Taylors both available here in London and a rather unappetizing looking 3.8% Leeds Pale ale... So it was off to the Lister up the road! We ate there both nights simply because initially the price was right around £9 for mains and the food was good along with a good range of ales - so this was our destination both nights... The Buck however had food pricing higher than our local here in West London on the river Thames! The mains typically were £13+ !!! We saw a few others eating and to be honest the food did not look that good or plentiful. Perhaps the icing on the cake was the lack of sympathy from the Landlord of our plight to sample the draught Theakstons - just a gruff "its off"... Not exactly welcoming or an attitude wishing to seek repeat business. We won't be returning here as this place is very untypical and lacks the generous warm Yorkshire welcome outsiders receive just about everywhere else - even the staff at the Masham brewery were somewhat shocked to hear of our treatment! On a slightly more positive note the room we had was not as bad as some reviews here (reasonable view and quite bright) but I would rate it more akin to a £50 per night B&B anywhere else - of course at the Buck Inn price of £80 per night...

Room Tip: The best tip is to consider the alternatives in the area...

We ate in this pub on two consecutive nights whilst camping in Malham. It was pretty busy on both nights due to the world cup football matches. The staff were nonetheless very friendly and the service was fast. We had the roast of the day and a game pie on the first night both of which were superb. Having given my friend an already large plate of roast dinner they came back with another plate containing even more food, stating that they had run out of large plates. Wow! On the second night we both had lamb burgers, which were served with large onion rings, chips and salad. Similarly good and no complaints about the price. The beer worked out at £7.20 for two pints, which seemed to be pretty reasonable.

We booked a twin for one night only as we were walking Week 1 of the Pennine Way and were treated to a large suite with one huge, comfy double in the main room and another in a private space behind a curtain with its own facilities. The bathroom was luxurious, right down to the standard of the toiletries, and everything was clean and tasteful.
We had a lovely supper and agree 100% with the chip enthusiast.
Saving the best news for last, the Buck Inn serves up a stunning breakfast; the hosts were kind enough to bring breakfast forward for us and still offer the full menu - yoghurt and compote of the day, eggs benedict, smoked haddock and poached eggs, smoked salmon - it was all there for us if we wanted it and the coffee was fantastic.
Every staff member we came across was friendly and helpful. And the harmonium works too.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 11! Rooms overlooking the road are troubled a bit by people at the tables outside and s...

Booked a double room in Jan. 2012 for a stay during the Tour de France in July 2014. Very disappointed when we were shown to our room, which was the smallest in the whole hotel and pretty dismal. Surrounded by all this natural beauty and we were looking out over the roofs of the kitchen and a blank wall. Loo overflow ran all night on the first night - not conducive to a goodnights sleep. Although reported it was not fixed during our stay. On the plus side breakfast was excellent. Had dinner on one night which was ok but expensive for what it was.
