Yesterday I visited the Bay Horse in Crakehall, The atmosphere was very good, Sunday lunch was well received. Friendly locals and a mixture of tourists. A real community feel with a meat draw ,cricket on green, quoits and charity nights. Very good real ale. We understand that the landlord is currently in hospital and the bar was run by locals...

Called in for impromptu sunday lunch, four people and three dogs. We were made more than welcome and ordered our drinks and four beef dinners, when the food came the veg was no where near enough for four people and was served separately. The plates with the meat on came with two pieces of beef a Yorkshire pudding with onion... More

Driving along from Bedale to Hawes, we cam upon this great pub. Stopped on the off chance and glad we did. Nothing special, but generously filled and interesting sandwiches. Well worth a diversion off the A1(M)

This is a wonderful village pub with very high standards.The furniture is always well polished. The beer pumps kept well to deliver perfect beer and the food is a delight to eat. The locals are very friendly and they play quoits just outside and cricket on the village green across the road.

We went to Bay Horse Inn for a meal as we stayed in the area for my mum's 60th birthday. The food was lovely and fresh and we could not complain about a thing. We loved it and will come back again.

A group of friends needed a central place to meet up one very wet and dreary Sunday. We were greeted by a real fire which made the bar cheery, good landlord, attentive staff and friendly locals. Fairly standard bar food, but it was what we needed, service was good.

There are (at least) two 'Bay Horse' pubs in the Bedale area - my review concerns the one in Crakehall, overlooking the green. Despite its picturesque setting, the interior is gloomy and sticky and the landlord has to be one of the most reluctant and dour individuals I have ever encountered - spectacularly unsuited to his chosen profession! The food... More
