I don't like to give negative reviews, I'd rather just not bother, but after receiving the bill yesterday at The Bay Horse I just felt this would be constructive criticism. I was part of a small group which had already arranged to meet here. I probably would have chosen somewhere else if it had been my choice, as after seeing... More

Its a great shame I have to give this one star at all... Tried to get a cost effective meal from Groupon like most of the customers of the Bay Horse it seems, and even though it was cheaper, the food was undercooked, and cold. Staff rude, and very unhelpful to solve any issues. Tried to remain polite and professional,... More

Had a groupon deal, but was told that they needed at least 24 hours notice to order in the food specific for this special menu, although this was not in the T&Cs. Restaurant was empty and they were not interested in substituting the menu in any shape to what they had in stock, suggested we came back another day. What... More

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
