Comments by walkers who stayed at Buck Inn Hotel in Chop Gate on The Coast to Coast Path
 
Our second stay and we would recommended the Buck Inn. The owners, their dogs and their common spaces make staying here a pleasure. We met a retired local who comes weekly for some German food. We love that there is local support though we won't rave about the goulash but everything else we had was good.
The pickup and drop off service is great but my husband hiked the connecting trail and found that quite easy. I loved the service with the dogs.

Where to stay near Clay Bank Top (2017)?! This is a very friendly and welcoming hotel where we were kindly given a lift to and from the path (phoned the hotel from Wain Stones: good mobile phone reception there). Owners and staff were very hospitable and the evening meal menu very extensive including some German dishes (and German beer at the bar) because one of the owners is German. Our double en-suite room was spacious and had good facilities. A good experience.

A clean room, with large comfortable bed and decent shower. Good beers, and German beers and a very good menu for evening meal, which was delicious. But a disappointing breakfast, I ordered scrambled egg on toast, and received a plate of over cooked scrambled egg, no toast. My husband ordered a bacon sandwich and received a plate of bacon, no bread. Very good sandwiches in the packed lunches, and a welcome pick up and drop off to and from the coast to coast route. It's a shame the breakfast let it down as everything else was good.

Stayed here June 2016. Had an excellent afternoon tea on arrival. Our room was comfortable, quiet, and clean. Wolfgang and staff were friendly and accommodating. Also, Wolfgang has 2 beautiful and impressively large giant schnauzers. Would stay here again!

Stayed here in mid Sept whilst walking the C2C. Again accommodation worth diverting off the path for. Free pick up and drop off from Clay Bank Top with our taxi driver been our host Wolfgang. Nice comfortable room with excellent food. Would stay here again

We stayed here in June 2015 and found it to be the best value of the trip. The rooms were clean quiet and comfortable. The food was excellent and the range of German and Brit beers really good. The Pub is run by a husband and wife team - the husband is German and he is the brilliant chef. His food would not be out of place in a city restaurant - and his puddings and cakes are to die for. Excellent and a real find. Add to that the free pick up and drop of, what more could you ask for. They do have two big dogs but they are quiet and seem well trained. They are also kept separate to the guests.

A welcome lift down from Claybank Top - though quite early lift back in the morning. Lovely bright room on the ground floor so easy to get suitcases there. The restaurant was lovely to eat in with a good menu and both staff and owners were welcoming.

A great place to stay. Don't be put off by the fact it's a little off-track. Wolfgang and Helen are great hosts and do provide pick-up and return. A bonus for me was finding that my host was an Australian with a German accent. He even played some Australian music for me! As a solo walker I found this place really welcoming with good accommodation and food. Highly recommended.

Wolfegang and Helen run this B & B off route. They pick up and drop off C2C walkers. Great fire and dining room full with walkers and locals. That should tell you something. Besides, Wolfegang bought me a shandy! Thanks,

One of the best places we stayed along the whole coast to coast.

Our hosts were welcoming and friendly and picked us up from the path.

The evening meal was one of the best we had on our holiday and our rooms were clean and confortable. A great place to visit.

Staying here worked fine. Ann fetched us from Clay Bank Top. Very attractive pub. Quiet, comfortable ground floor room in an annexe at the back. One of the best pub meals of the trip. Also enjoyed a chat with Wolfgang interesting life history and opinions! We chose to walk from the pub to rejoin the main route, up onto Urra Moor via the bridleway past Bilsdale Hall.

We all voted this the best pub we stayed in on the C2C walk. Rooms were clean and of a high standard. TV was 26

Good friendly service, and good food. Rooms nice and clean, plus kind enough to pick us up from the path, and drop us back off in the morning, saving a rubbish walk along a main road.

Landlady picked us up from the layby, which was brilliant as we were soaked through. They dried our clothes and boots, they were very friendly and helpful. Bedroom clean and very comfortable bed!
Evening spent by the log fire - heaven!
Food good, the bar staff were very pleasant and looked after us well.

The Buck Inn is a place where you simply have to stop by if you are nearby. We have seldom experienced so much friendlyness and charm gathered in one place. The surroundings are breath-taking, the 300-year-old building is rustique and beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and the food is excellent. You will find everything you need for a perfect stay, maybe after a long day of walking, and it will be hard to leave! We will definitely come back here.

We recently stayed at The Buck Inn Hotel on one of our stopovers whilst doing the Coast to Coast Walk. We were welcomed warmly and the rooms were very comfortable, well equipped and with amazingly comfortable beds!!! We enjoyed a fabulous evening meal in the inn and was just what we needed after a long day. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to fellow walkers and indeed to anyone wanting a comfortable few days away. We shall certainly be back, whether on a walking jaunt or just a weekend away.

We stayed here when doing the C2C in May 2010. Of all the accomodation we had booked, this was the one we were worried about after reading previous reviews, but we needn't have worried. The room was clean and spacious, The evening meal wasn't fantastic but was okay, but the breakfast was good. The road down from Claybank Top is long and quite busy (with no footpath) so I would advise visitors to pre-arrange a pick up / drop off from the layby at Claybank with the manager of the Buck Inn, as this is well worth the nominal charge. The new managers are very keen to restore the image of the Buck Inn and I think they are well on the way to doing this.

Good nights stay very friendly. Evening meal and Breakfast good. Don't walk to it arrange a pick up / drop off from the layby at Claybank Top this works well.

Abit of a walk from the route, but found out later that the owner would have picked us up. He took us back to the route the following morning for a small charge. We had a really enjoyable stay.....the landlord was friendly, welcoming and funny! The food (evening meal and breakfast) was excellent; good quality and good quantity. The room was very comfortable and well equipped. Would definitely stay there again.

There is a nice detour from the Coast to Coast on a right of way that comes out just next to this Hotel so no walking on the road is needed. A very nice hotel.

July 2010. After a long walk and high winds on the moors, this was a welcome stay. The hotel has been refurbished and is under new management. The room was comfortable and clean with all facilities. Dinner was traditional pub fare, but we had no complaints. Climbed up Urra Moor the following day to avoid retracing our footsteps

Having read previous reviews my expectations were not high. I found, as others before me, that I had to ring to gain access but I was fairly early and someone came with the keys a few moments later. My room was fine but in need of refurbishment along with the rest of the hotel. Marion and the barman were welcoming and friendly and provided an average pub meal and breakfast. I t certainly wasn't the worst place I stayed on the C2C but I couldn't help wishing that someone would invest in the place and turn its fortunes around. If you don't mind missing the Wain Stones or if the weather is bad, take the lane down to Chop Gate from the Lord Stones Cafe and rejoin the C2C by climbing up to Urra Moor and following a track to the Cleveland Way signs on Round Hill. In this way you don't probably add to your miles.

The Buck Inn was a bit of walk off the trail from Clay Bank Top, And, I was a little unsure about what to expect, as I had heard that the place was up for sale. However, it turned out to be OK. The food was good and the room was clean and very comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
