“breakfast with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

breakfast was a treat: the views, of course, but also the loose leaf tea, fresh fruit, delicious local eggs...
dinners were also a feast... hard not to over-eat, so perhaps limit your stay to 2 nights ^_^

“Beautiful views and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have been regulars at The Bay Horse for many years as we live in Ulverston. It is a charming traditional pub and restaurant with open fires in the winter, superb views across Morcambe Bay whatever the season, and a warm welcome for dogs in the bar area too!

You can have a lovely walk up from Canal Head and then enjoy coffee, lunch or afternoon tea there. We have also dined in the restaurant over the years both with family, friends and at office Christmas parties. We haven't stayed in the rooms by my late father and step mother had a lovely break there and talked about their stay many times.

Definitely one to visit if you are coming to Furness.

“Overpriced Pub!”

Time to eat a main meal is set for 7.30pm to dine for 8pm. Food is over fussy and over priced.Light bites i.e. sandwiches etc cost £7.95

“Top location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Few better places to enjoy a beer in Ulverston than at the bay Horse. It's tucked away down a long road which runs alongside the GSK site, but once you are there, the views are stunning. Good selection of beer. I hear food is great - but doesn't come cheap.

“A Lakeland Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Three members of our family stayed over for only one night and enjoyed one of the most flavoursome meals we have ever tasted, in the conservatory restaurant, which has beautiful views over the atmospheric Leven estuary. We particularly enjoyed the choice of "muffin" rolls we were offered! Two of us had steak dishes (1 with garlic butter, 1 with mustard and brandy sauce) whilst the other member of the family had calves' liver - all dishes melted in the mouth, and the vegetables were absolutely delicious. We cannot recommend The Bay Horse highly enough. In our opinion the Chef would be a serious contender for "Master Chef" and we are so looking forward to experiencing his culinary delights again in the near future.
