I visited the Bay Horse on an early mid-week evening with a small family party. The menu is extensive with something for everyone along with a good children's section. Our selections were served by friendly staff and were fresh and hot. Although early evening there were a good number of diners, a popular place. First class food at a fair... More

A generous sized Sunday roast and good Value. We were lucky to get the last beef though as Diners after us only had one choice left which was Pork. We ate @ 2pm so not late for a Sunday. Would not expect them to run out of Menu items at this time. However we were unaffected! Not top quality but... More

Have had a couple of meals here recently and found them to be excellently cooked and presented. Add to this a reasonably priced menu and you have the basis of a good visit. We also found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The venue also has an outside eating area which in theory is great on a warm... More

Visited here last week and yesterday. Staff really friendly and pleasant. Had to return for the Steak, Ale and Mushroom pie which was really tasty. My Mother had scampi which was really nice and my friend had Smoothered chicken which he thought was great. Good choice on the menu

A beautiful location on the bay, made even better by great weather. The staff were very friendly. The menu was very limited either a sandwich or jacket potato, I asked for a salad and was told there was a side salad served with the potato or sandwich. Not great for diabetics, or those who have to be careful of their... More

This pub has an excellent quiz night every Tuesday, friendly staff and the food is very well priced. For £4.99 you can get a brilliant meal and salad which is very good value.

Third time we have eaten here when visiting the area but felt a bit let down. Had booked a table prior to arrival but waited a long time for food to be served (45 minutes) Felt that portion sizes had been reduced, a meagre portion of chips and the steak pie didn't have much meat in it but loads of...
