I've eaten at The Bay Horse Inn 3 times now with family and friends and enjoyed it every time. The food is really tasty and beautifully presented, the staff are friendly and welcoming and there is a good selection of local real ales. The Sunday carvery is excellent value for money, and delicious! Overall, a lovely country pub!

Ignore previous reviews (dated before April 2015), The Bay Horse Inn has new owners and it has just been totally refurbished. We were welcomed with a smile and warming conversation. There was a great choice of beer from lager, real ales, german bottled beers along with a selection of wines and spirits. We ate on a Saturday night (best book... More

Came over to see the band playing and pre booked a two course meal. There were 4 of us and we all had an excellent meal. Although a pub style menu the food was presented, served particularly well. A genuine old country pub with open fires and a great atmosphere . The food was particularly tasty and we had a... More

my last review for the Bay Horse was very negative, I was saddened by this as we had enjoyed some lovely meals and great nights here in the past. The new management look to be making great strides in repairing the reputation. A simple not over elaborate menu, good food well cooked and served, you can't ask for much more.... More

I can't believe how the Bay Horse has gone down hill. The poor young lady waiting on was exceptional but the food was terrible.

We have eaten before and had a good standard of meal for a small local country pub so decided to get on our push bikes and go for tea after returning from holiday. Our starters were all lovely but the mains really let down the whole evening. My meal was ordered from the specials menu and was nothing but bland... More

Nice little pub with food that's definitely above average - not posh but decent pub food done properly. The fish and chips are excellent. Helpings generous. Friendly too with an open fire for when it's chilly out.

I lived around the corner in Dalton House for quite a few years and loved this pub. It is my favourite "local" with great pub grub and beer. Not gastro or posh but a great Cumbrian pub. One day I will be back.
