No longer the pub it used to be but a really nice 'gastro pub' serving good food and offering live music at the weekends too. We don't eat here regularly, but they do have a beer garden and organise different artists throughout the year - a real result, and very popular with the locals. We like this place and the... More

I have been to the Bay Horse for drinks on many occasions. The outdoor area is great in the Summer so it's always a popular place to head when the sun comes out. But this year we decided to book in for the NYE meal with some friends & I'm glad we did! The evening was well organised & reasonably... More

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!
