We found the Bay Horse online and what a gem. From the moment we arrived we had such a warm welcome. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was amazing. Sadly we didn't stay for dinner but we will certainly be back as the menu and food looked amazing! Great place and great service

What a wee gem of a place. There were 14 of us that booked to stay, all quite tired after a day on the motorbikes. A fabulous, friendly welcome, secure bike parking if you need it. A great bar with good beer & whisky offerings. Chris, the owner is like a well oiled machine serving drinks. Nothing was too much... More

Surprising wee find. Incredibly friendly helpful staff. Great traditional friendly pub. Staff couldn't do enough. Good selection of real beer and malt whisky. Nice selection of quality food served in generous portions. Rooms were decent size. Plenty of storage space and nice soft big towels. Slightly dated decor but this actually fitted well with the traditional feel of the place.... More

Visiting Ripon and looking for somewhere to stay, we found the Bay Horse. An excellent country Inn tucked away in the village of Rainton. Room was good, Staff friendly and knowledgeable about the area, Food was excellent. Will stay again if visiting the area.

A friendly place with excellent food. Especially good at catering for special diets without making you feel at all a nuisance. Food has to be eaten to be appreciated; it is simply lovely with very generous portions. Chris and Bev are so friendly and welcoming we go back and back. There is a lot to do in this area of...

Pros - Staff/Owner fab; food second to none Cons - accommodation could use a little up-grading - lots of creaky floorboards so noisy. Also kitchen fan started up quite early However the accommodation was relatively good value for money - you get what you pay for! Any kinks in the accommodation were over ridden by the excellent food - both... More

From the moment we stepped into the Bay Horse Country Inn we received a warm welcome from Chris and we were shown to our rooms and how things worked. He was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us very detailed directions for when we continued our journey the next day. Our rooms were spotless and cosy and they... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights with my sister and brother-in-law.Both rooms were charming, clean & comfortable. The hosts, Chris & Bev couldn't have been more helpful quickly attending to anything asked of them and providing a wealth of local knowledge. We ate in their restaurant both nights with home cooked meals by Bev. The food was just... More
