We had heard such great things, and were instantly impressed on arrival. Cosy, comfortable yet with an air of 'chic'. Food well presented, fresh and tasty. Dissapointed with only one option for a vegetarian, cheese and onion pie, a little 1990s. But it was delicious and very light. However, the service really didn't reflect where the prices were pitched. Tables... More

Nice lunch if on the high end of the price scale, soda and lime arrived quickly but warm on a hot Sunday, at £1.95 a pint I expect cold drinks. Soup was not hot, probably just put in a cold bowl with cold cream and all served next to someone's dirty ashtray with no condiments. Staff were nice and accommodating... More

The member of staff that was running the bar , and doing all the waiting on was fantastic anything was too much trouble even though... More

A very nice night at a tradition Inn, nice well stocked bar to have a drink first, good staff and food just need to drop a few odd things off the dishes like, past it's best cress and iceberg lettuce. Liked the bread to start and chocolates with the coffee.

I have not stayed here but dropped in for lunch. We were given a friendly welcome and service throughout by the boss and his newly recruited waitress was attentive and helpful. (Old reviews complaining about the service are now out of date!) The bar area was full, so we went in the dining room at the back, from where we... More

Travelling down the M6 from Cumbria to Manchester Airport we were looking for somewhere "family friendly" and not horrible to stop off for a quick lunch. Decided that the Lancaster/Galgate exit looked promising, and by luck we ended up at the Bay Horse. Lovely pub, and the staff were really friendly and helpful: they spontaneously offered that with our small... More

Firstly there's a duplicate on this restaurant as it's also mentioned in the Lancaster section. It's not Lancaster though, definitely Galgate (ish). The food was great. Prettily constructed, nicely portioned, well cooked. I would suggest the venue is spending all its money in the kitchen and not bothering too much with the service side. No greeting when we arrived, no... More

After several recommendations from friends we finally got round to trying out the Bay Horse and we will most definitely be back. The Sunday lunch (we both had the sirloin of beef) was fantastic - cooked quite rare, just how we like it, but you can of course have it more well-done. The staff and overall service was great, much... More

Called here when passing last Saturday not sure if we would have needed to book but as it was only 6.30 took a chance. The staff were were very good and found us a table even though it was quite busy, and they had a big group coming in at 7.00. The place was spotlessly clean and very traditional. I... More
