Visited for the first time since it reopened on a Saturday. Food and service was great with a good choice of beer. A great stop if you fancy a walk around beautiful Pendle. Recommend the Cajun burger

Whilst I’m delighted that the community pitched in to keep this pub open it failed to hit the mark with us following our meal tonight. We stumbled across the Bay horse inn in the summer of 2016 and we were very impressed with the location,...More
