Smashing pub. Theakstons and I would say the pint of the whole Inn Way - a weeks walking through the dales, stopping at 26 pubs over 6 days :-)

Lovely staff - great food - XB recommended.

Some photos at my walking blog -

Now reopened under new management after a fairly topsy-turvy recent history, the Buck is a welcome addition to Upper Wharfedale. A fine looking stone building, partly ivy-clad, there are two large rooms to the left on entering, with a corner of the bar available for serving. The main bar servery is in the public bar to the right, which has a slightly different character to the other rooms: more for locals than tourists, perhaps; certainly more for drinkers than diners. There was a fire burning in here, and at first we took our drinks to one of the other rooms as it wasn't a particularly cold night, but there were loudspeakers in there pumping out some dreadful 1970s Top of the Pops compilation, so we beat a hasty retreat and sat around the table in front of the fire: no music in here! Strangely, there's a double wrought iron gate which can be used to seal this room off from the remainder of the pub, though I can't imagine why it would be necessary.

On the bar are six hand pumps, two from Clarks of Wakefield - Classic Blonde and a house bitter; two from Theakstons - Old Peculier and Best Bitter; Timothy Taylor Landlord, and Copper Dragon Black Gold. The landlord described the latter to another customer as a chocolate stout, so I hope he wasn't too disappointed to find himself drinking a very nice dark mild. I've taken a point off for the music, but otherwise I would have no problem coming here again.

We arrived here on 18 August 2010 intending to stay the night, but discovered that it had, very recently, closed. Hopefully, this is a temporary measure, as there are no other pubs in the village and Buckden is a popular stop on both the "Dales Way" and the "Inn Way" footpaths.
