We called in for Sunday Lunch and had their Sunday Roast special. The pub is nicely decorated and very clean. There is a pleasant dining room. The food was delicious and there was a choice of 3 roasts and plenty of vegetables as well as Yorkshire pudding. Soup was also included in the set price. There was a choice of... More

The new occupants have done a great job of turning the Bay Horse Inn around. It is now a local village pub once again and the Sunday carvery is a treat - but you had better book your place! We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary there recently and all our friends from all over the UK were very impressed with... More

I've called in here on several Easter Sundays whilst in the area for the vintage vehicle displays and road runs. After a decent breakfast and looking forward to an evening meal with friends, I've never had an appetite for more than the soup. The menu looks great and my mouth has watered as I've seen meals being served to others.This... More

Really nice to see this place with a good atmosphere at last, looking clean, busy and a spruced up... if I had known they had gone "food on a slate" I would have probably had my supper at Brough Chippy...food falls off a slate, you may as well serve it directly on to the table, they aren't hygienic, the cutlery...

Now been a few times and has always been outstanding every time. We had 2 meals from the specials menu and both are recommended , the fish pie and the quiche . The strawberry cheesecake was excellent and is my favourite ,although the sticky toffee pudding comes a close second.

Staying in Winton for the week in old school house. The pub is just across the road so popped in for dinner mid week. We ate 3 courses and all was very good. Beer good, would recommend the EPA. portion sizes very healthy and just what you want after a good hard walk. Would have no issues eating here again.... More

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!
