Sunday lunch

A group of friends needed a central place to meet up one very wet and dreary Sunday. We were greeted by a real fire which made the bar cheery, good landlord, attentive staff and friendly locals. Fairly standard bar food, but it was what we needed, service was good.

There are (at least) two 'Bay Horse' pubs in the Bedale area - my review concerns the one in Crakehall, overlooking the green. Despite its picturesque setting, the interior is gloomy and sticky and the landlord has to be one of the most reluctant and dour individuals I have ever encountered - spectacularly unsuited to his chosen profession! The food... More

A privilege to be made welcome in this quintessential English pub. Good beer, good honest food, nice people.

We stayed locally in sceptre cottage so could walk here of an evening, we had Sunday lunch which was superb, a midweek evening meal and fish and chip takeaway on Friday. All meals were excellent as was the service. Bar staff were friendly and the locals were very welcoming. The beer was also excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

A perfect summer's evening. What better than to sit outside with a pint and have a bite to eat? Well, we arrived at 7.30 an ordered a starter and a main course. Sitting outside the air became cooler and cooler; despite inquiries, the food didn't arrive until nearly 9 o'clock. The landlord seemed uninterested and just said they were busy,... More

Whilst I can't complain about the beer (fab Theakstons and fab Camerons), I visited on there consecutive eveneings whilst camping locally and was anything but embraced by the pompous, arrogant and condiscending locals. It's definitely a focal point of the local community and that should be praised, but my £3.20 is as good as anyone else's even though I don't... More

Visited Easter bank holiday Saturday and enjoyed it so much we went back the.following Saturday (whilst staying at Burtree House caravan park). Very friendly owners, staff and locals. Good food, although a limited menu, and I would recommend the Theakston's Best. They also have a cat you could just pick up and cuddle...

Please do not be put off by the plain exterior of this pub. The outside doesn't do justice to what lies inside. Really friendly & welcoming landlord and staff, great locals and the food is amazing especially their roast beef dinner on a Sunday. We are from Dorset but when we return to Yorkshire, which we will, we will certainly... More
