I was in a group of four adults that ate here for dinner recently. I hadn't been for some time, so was keen to give it a go following good reports from friends. The menu on the night was different to what was published on the website, but was actually better. Who could go wrong with burger or steak as... More

I have had a few meals here and they've all been delicious. The fish finger sandwiches are brilliant and I also love the beef sandwiches which is a real surprise because in most places it's usually dry and very tight on the actual meat with overdone horseradish, not here. The beef is cooked for a very long time making it... More

I went here with my wife last night and we settled down in a corner . It's quite snug and has a nice relaxing atmosphere. We had 3 courses. Wife thought the rabbit starter was ok but loved the liver and bacon. I enjoyed the fish cakes and had the sirloin . When the steak came out it was without... More

Went for a Sunday roast with my other half and were surprised to find it very quiet inside although the outdoor eating area was very busy. Nice food with good service & good portion sizes. Another plus was the live music, made for a very enjoyable Sunday atmosphere!

Used a voucher but the fixed menu had something for everybody in our party. The welcome was great as was the service throughout. The food was ver good indeed. I would certainly return there even at full price.

Ate there alone quite recently and was thoroughly satisfied with my meal. I ordered what could be considered to be a pretty 'standard' choice from the menu: slow-cooked beef with potatoes and veg. However, it was executed to perfection; the beef was tender and melt in the mouth, the roasted potato was everything you'd hope for - crispy on the... More

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
