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

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

After threatening to visit the Bay Horse, for what in hindsight was far to long we finally made it. I just wish we had done so a long time ago. Service was superb from the minute we walked through the door. The staff were friendly and helpful, the drinks good, and the place was immaculate. For starter i enjoyed the... More

We went to the Bay Horse to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. Over the years, we've had a lot of decent meals, a few absolute horrors and a few exceptional ones. Glad to say that this was one of the exceptional ones. Both the food and service here were excellent. The staff were relaxed and friendly but managed to be... More

We had a really nice time at this place, from the outside it looks like a nice country pub, but the food is really good, and presentation is out of this world. I had the venison, but I wasnt too impressed (bit tough), the rest of my family all enjoyed their meals, so maybe I just made a wrong choice.... More

The food was very nice although my first choice was not able to be served to my liking. My second choice was very nice... More

Our daughter and her fiancée wanted to take grandma out for a special celebratory wedding meal as the event would be to much for her to handle, so we went to the Bay Horse. On arrival the 6 of us were taken to the snug. A lovely room with a great cosy feel, wing chairs, candelabra on the big oak... More
