The pub is lovely with friendly staff. The menu is varied. The prices high. We ordered a Whitby crab starter and the scallops. On arrival the dishes looked like a work of art. A lot of work had gone into them. On tasting we were both disappointed, there was no wow factor . We both found it difficult to determine... More

We visited The Bay Horse on a busy Sunday afternoon for a joint birthday celebration and I must say the the food, wine and service was exceptional. Everyone in the party thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who has an appreciation for the finer thing in life!

I visited the Bay Horse for a second time a few days ago and had a lovely experience. My wife and friend had the Salmon Caesar Salad which was excellent and considering the portion of salmon it was extremely good value. For myself I ordered the 2 course lunch and was amazed by the quality, presentation and value. Parfait of... More

Couldn't fault this place. Roast beef was superb with FULL size Yorkshire puddings that were cooked to perfection. The staff were accommodating and we had a room for our family (altogether 9 people) definitely recommend.
