“Excellent Food and beer”
Review of The Bay Horse

The Bay Horse
Certificate of Excellence

Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
Description: 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.

I have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed. Food/service are both great and there are usually a couple of proper beers on as well. Portions can sometimes be a bit small but the flavours make up for it. Don't get seated too close to the bar area as it can get noisy/crowded on a weekend which spoils the meal a bit

Food is excellent at the Bay Horse. DEfinitely not your average fish & chips, lasagne type pub grub. Its more like a very good restaurant - very innovative, well presented & tastes wonderful. The 3 course set meal for £25 was better value than the a la carte menu but everyone agreed that it was excellent & we would return again.

My wife and I visited the Bay Horse for our 10th Anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it, we were shown to our table promptly and ordered some drinks whilst looking at the menu, we eventually made our minds up and ordered, only for the waitress to come back and tell us that the dish my wife had ordered was off the menu, a little disappointing as this should have been pointed out when we were given the menus, after another 5 minutes of deliberating we made our minds up and ordered our meals. We weren't rushed at all, the starters arrived and I had the black pudding which was excellent, my wife had a crab dish which was as she said "tasty" but there were a couple of small issues that were soon addressed by the waitress. Our mains, Beef Daube and the duck, with sides of fries, peas and broccoli were absolutely superb, albeit the duck skin was a little soggy but the beef was to die for, couldn't fault it at all. The cheese board which I had for dessert was again a delight, it's not the cheapest of places to eat but we think it is worth every penny for that special occasion. For all of those that comment about portion sizes and the other things on the plate we were full to bursting by the end of the meal, and it's the little things that make the Bay Horse stand out from the rest of the food establishments in the area. After all this is a fine dining experience!! We will undoubtedly return again in the future.
