Three of us stayed at the Bay Horse for one night. The welcome we received from the staff great and their hospitatlity was exceptional throughout our stay. We had a room. They were all very comfortable and clean and resonably priced. The pub itself had a great atmosphere. There was a wide selections of beers (real ale) and each of... More

Had our wedding celebration there last year was fantastic, couldn't wish for a nicer couple running a pub. Live music is good, food on a Sunday is always extremely good which is free. The new outside area is child friendly and comfortable. Can't fault this pub in any way.

I wasn't sure what to expect as I had seen mixed reviews, but I had no trouble finding the place at all, was greeted lovely by a lady at the bar, who also gave me information about the area and where I could find somewhere to eat, I was then given my room key and told where to find the... More

Thoroughly enjoyable stay - pleasant (superior) room with a good view over the water meadows, with the dog it was great to be able to sit outside and eat on the deck area which has tables provided just for the use by guests in the accommodation. Nice and clean room with a small fridge and kettle - not much more... More

The room I got was pretty good, especially for the money. Everything was clean and there was a decent shower and a TV and other conveniences. There was not a huge amount of storage space, the windows in my room were small, the view was not great and there was a little bit of noise from the busy pub upstairs.... More

The photos and description do not prepare you for what the Bay Horse actually offers. I thought the rooms would be above the pub but they were in the car park! There is no footpath so you have to hope you don't get run over walking to/from your room. The room was tiny and dark and dull, although it was... More

I needed a place to stay last minute and this little gem popped up! Not only does it have a friendly pub where I drank numerous glasses of Gin before I went off to my friend's BBQ, it also has accommodation! I was thinking it'll probably be a bit gross since I was only paying £40. I was very wrong!... More

Good, basic accommodation., Lovely room. Comfortable bed. Great shower. Nice towels. Extremely clean. Good welcome on arrival. We had Room 5, which can apparently can be a bit noisy when there is a band in, but this didn't bother us as we went to see the band!! What more do you want for this price?

Stayed for 2 nights while exploring the local area. On arrival no dramas reservation all sorted. The room was well appointed and clean. The room a double was a very good size. Tea and coffee in the room which was restocked each day. Plenty of parking at the back. The location is good for exploring the local area and only... More

Ok… The Bay Horse is hardly a 5* resort so when booking take into consideration the cost of the room and read the small print! My partner and I stayed here as we were attending my cousins wedding and as far as we are concerned it did the job we wanted it to do… i.e. a bed for the night!... More
