Could you run this pub?
The Buck Inn occupies a prominent roadside location at the heart of the large village of Thornton Dale in North Yorkshire, between Pickering and Scarborough. Sitting in a picturesque area that benefits from a strong tourist trade, this property is a fabulous country pub with a reputation for great ales, good food and warm hospitality.
The pub is split into separate trading areas, with a bar, lounge, restaurant, function room and has 3 letting rooms. The fully equipped kitchen can cater for the 40 covers available.
About the local area
The Buck Inn is situated in the large village of Thornton Dale, just a mile east of Pickering. On the edge of North Riding Forest Park, part of the North York Moors National Park, the area is very picturesque and benefits from a very strong tourist trade. Despite being a village, Thornton Dale has an abundance of services, giving it the best of both worlds – a rural destination with facilities that most smaller towns would be proud of, including bus routes, GP surgeries, shops, and a post office.
You should have an aptitude for business and a flair for retail. A strong community spirit is key here, and you’ll be keen to extend a warm welcome to locals and visitors to the area alike. Due to the nature of the offer catering knowledge would be a distinct advantage.
The private accommodation consists of four bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge.
