After staying here last year and enjoyed my time, I was back in the area so didn't hesitate to book again and I'm glad I did, this place has gone up another level since the new landlord and landlady (Dave and Libby) took over, place was ok before but now it's fantastic! These guys couldn't do enough, helping me with... More

Popped in before our restaurant booking on a Saturday night. It's was a shock seeing it so empty as we've been in here several times before and have enjoyed the atmosphere. However it felt as if it was closing down . Glad we only had the quick pre meal drinks .

Libby + Dave having taken over the premises the week before we arrived made us feel most welcome without being intrusive. The downstairs public bar areas are in the process of being refurbished and we were seated in the "snug" for breakfast with tablecloths to make this transitional period a very pleasant experience. The full English breakfast was so generous... More

Breakfast was said to be between 8.30-9.15 , ok we said 8.45, sat... More

Recently did a one night stay at the Bay Horse Inn. It's a decent budget guest house. The room I stayed in was spacious and comfortable and the staff member I dealt with was a really nice guy. The pub downstairs has seen better days, but is fine. The Bay Horse is very near York station (5 minutes on foot).... More
