We stayed here earlier in the year so called in for a pre-diner drink 2 nights running. Traditional homely friendly local pub with great friendly Yorkshire bar man. The Black Sheep is well kept and very more-ish.

Visited the bay horse this evening whilst staying in York. The staff were very friendly, the pub had lots of character and, most importantly, the food was out of this world. Lots to choose from, not expensive (we got two steaks with unlimited chips and salad for £15!) and it was all really, very tasty. Would definitely go back for... More

Myself and a group of friends stayed here on the 31st May for York Races. James is very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the location is excellent. We look forward to staying next year for the same York Races meeting.

Stayed here for one night, don't be put off by the exterior as the rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathroom also had been recently refitted with lovely tiles and claw foot bath. My only criticism would be road noise as our room overlooked the main road and I am just not used to it. Breakfast was amazing and huge... More

We stayed at the Bay Horse Inn for two nights recently & found James & Sue to be very friendly & welcoming. Our room was clean & comfortable & the breakfast enjoyable. It's in a good position for walking into York, so no need to worry about driving or finding parking places. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks James... More

A friendly welcome to this traditional pub property. I was shown to a large, clean room with spotless crisp bedding. Bathroom plumbing a little challenging but not detrimental to my stay. The highlight was a full English breakfast, served piping hot. Good value for money.

Stayed here and was pleasantly surprised! Room was lovely, twin beds very comfy with high quality bedding etc and a lovely bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits and breakfast was fantastic-full english and a choice of cereals. Five mins from station, five mins from York and over the road from Sainsburys for anything you may forget. Manager James... More
