After playing a gig at this lovely little pub / restaurant a couple of years ago, i had always said to my wife that we must try this place for lunch or dinner. Why we waited so long i don't know! Quality of food here is outstanding! Probably one of the best fillet steaks i have ever eaten, my wife's... More

Visited for a second time and it was just as good if not better. Three courses each for three of us and no complaints other than we didn't want it to end! Only niggle was that most of the puddings on the main menu had nuts in which I don't like and they wouldn't let me choose one from the... More

We ate upstairs in a wonderful private room following drinks in the snug. It was a very busy Friday evening and although the service was perhaps a little inattentive at times the meal was excellent and certainly everything was worthy of this being such a special evening , the engagement of our youngest son to his fiance and we were...

It has been a few months since visiting the Bay Horse and we were not disappointed on returning. We stopped over on our way home to Sussex from Scotland and visited the pub for dinner. I used to eat here every week when I worked in the area and have never had a bad meal. This has to be one... More

Had lunch here before and it was superb, but for this review it was my sisters wedding reception. We all received a warm welcome, the service throughout the day was at a level I've never experienced before even in 5 star hotels. The food was out of this world and Marcus the Head Chef was a really nice chap. To... More

I ate here about 6 months ago, it was fine nothing to write home about but not to complain either. I wasn't paying the bill that evening so didn't note the price of anything, not that I normally would anyway. However, I took my father for drink on Sunday evening, we had 1 large glass of Sauvignon Blanc and one... More

I feel you are miss representing our drink prices, the pint you ordered was £3.60 and the wine you specifically ordered was a 250ml glass of Kuki, the multiple award winning Sauvignon Blanc, from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. We have a wonderful wine list boasting 20 different wines by the glass from £3.40 a glass, you obviously have... More

Attended with my wife and our friends, though the menu was not expansive the quality was nothing short of superb, the presentation was first class and as good as anywhere we have been. Staff were attentive and could not do enough, the pea risotto starter was particularly nice, no one had any complaints and though not the cheapest meal u... More

As this is a 30-minute drive we come here less often that we would like, especially at night. (The lunches are always great and excellent value). It is a bit of a special event trip therefore – though you are going to pay more than at any of the likely competition plus the wine prices are sensible. As it is... More

We had a lovely meal here today for my Dads birthday, we got one of the private rooms which was great as we could all have a good catch up. They had great options for children and the staff were great although we were in a private room we never felt we were looking for staff, they always arrived at... More
