Very friendly staff, the room was very comfortable. There was a nice choice of foods on the menu and you can eat in the bar or restaurant. Food was lovely and good portion sizes. It has managed to keep the feel of a village pub. Would definitely stop here again.

We have enjoyed frequent stays at this lovely country pub since we first discovered it back in 2013. The welcome from the owners and staff is always warm and friendly and the food is excellent. The menu offers a great choice of well priced, home cooked dishes which can be eaten in either the dining room or in the bar.... More

Thanks to Chris, Bev and staff for another wonderful stay. Can't fault our long weekend stay. Food was lovely and the room great. Anyone visiting try the home made pie, steaks and not to forget probably the best cooked breakfast you'll have anywhere. Will be back next time we're in the north east.

Decided to stay here after reading very positive reviews and have to say that everything we had read was true. Lovely, genuine staff who made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. Rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. Food was plentiful, well-priced and excellent. We would definitely recommend to others.

Stayed for 4 nights at this wonderful old pub, accommodation was excellent with superior quality towels and bedding. Lovely pub food served every night and fully cooked English breakfast. Chris was very accommodating and was most helpful taking our luggage up and down the 1 flight of stairs, no problem parking and about a 10 minute drive to Thirsk. Really... More

If you want to enjoy a TYPICAL ENGLISH PUB this is the place to go!!! We had an absolute ball with the regulars, accommodation is 100% as also was the food (actually it was probably in the 150% category) and owners and staff were friendly and obliging. Would love to live closer so that I could become a regular patron!!... More

We were looking to stay in Rainton for just 1 night. The Bay Horse is very much a traditional pub. The landlord, Chris, and his wife, made us most welcome. It is not a boutique gastro type of place, but a traditional pub. The floor boards do squeak, but that only adds character. The bedroom was clean and well appointed.... More

We stayed last weekend before going to my daughters wedding and were so happy to find a traditional Yorkshire pub serving food with accommodation....... This is an old building with creaky floorboards and noisy plumbing all of which adds to the whole experience !! Its not a trendy gastro pub therefore the food is wholesome and plentiful....neither is it a... More
