Visited the Bay Horse after a recommendation from work colleagues and it was definitely one the best meals I've had this year. Booked online (easy and quick), got there 15 minutes early but table was ready for us. Lovely atmosphere overall and the two waitresses were very attentive, quick and friendly: excellent customer service. My husband didn't know which ale... More

Over the years I have passed by the Bay Horse thinking it was just a pub. We were invited by friends for Sunday lunch and I was surprised when I went inside. It had a very pleasant atmosphere. I had pork chop that was well cooked and the acompanying vegetables were enjoyable. My wife had roast beef that, according to... More

Went there a Monday night, very quiet, not a lot of people. The meal was very nice. I think the waitress didn't have enough to do, because she came over every 5 minutes asking if everything was OK. All together very good ans we willbe going back

I often go to The Bay Horse for my lunch break. The service is always perfect. The menu is small but it changes regularly. The food has been perfect every time and I've never had any problem

Lots reasons to eat here and a few areas that, for me, could really improve the experience. Had a Friday night table booked for 2, pouring with rain, handy to have a car park. Booked over the phone and upon sitting established that if you book on line you get a free glass of wine or a cocktail - WHY... More

Had an absolutely fantastic meal...service excellent and the meal was fabulous! Portions are generous, I'm a big eater but couldn't finish my main course. The staff are very attentive and polite, they make the whole evening most enjoyable. I would highly recommend and we we're told weekends they have live music from 10pm onwards what more could you ask for?
