Went as a birthday treat and thought it was slightly overpriced. Food was very good, staff are excellent and attentive. It has a lovely ambience and I can see why it is so popular. On my income it is a once a year special treat but you do feel great with the overall experience

From first to last everything about our visit was impressive the food, the service and the surroundings. One small criticism for the waiter never fill a wine glass that isn't empty from a new bottle even if it is the same wine. Other than that brilliant

Best Sunday lunch we've had in a long, long time and we're glad to be going back in a couple of weeks. Superb cooking, wonderful drinks and a beautiful setting with lovely staff. Excellent value. Yorkshire puddings the size of your head and perfect beef sirloin !!!

We regularly come to the area to visit family. This weekend my mother in law decided that for Sunday lunch we would visit The Bay Horse which she assured me would be the perfect treat for the end of the week. I can confirm that none of us left disappointed. I realised three courses would be a stretch so decided... More

The Bay Horse retains an emphasis on the finer details of a real old English pub, hand pulled local ales in dimple glasses and side dishes served in copper pans. The menu is made up of classic British cooking with a twist & has a strong emphasis on flavours & presentation. The premise has achieved a Michelin Bib Gourmand for the last four years.
