“Return visit - even better than we remembered”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Chris and Bev are excellent hosts, always welcoming and can't do enough for you. Room was excellent, bath as well as shower. A pleasure to go into the bar for a few drinks before a plentiful tasty evening meal, excellent home cooked breakfast all made from local produce was one to remember, can't wait for our return visit, Would recommend to anyone,

We received outstanding hospitality from the landlord/hotelier at the Bay Horse. The rooms were lovely, clean and airy. Breakfast was brilliant. Excellent value for money and we couldnt have asked for more. I would strongly recommend this place as the best B&B I have ever visited. (and no, I'm not related)

We didn't stay here as we live in the next village over, we visited for lunch.

It was roasting so we sat outside and the staff had no problem letting us eat outdoors and enjoy the sun!
Mum had a beef dinner, dad had fishcakes and salad and myself and the boyfriend tucked into steak pie. All came with a Yorkshire pudding and some roast potatoes (all of which was very nice).

The food was fantastic (the gravy is beautiful) and the service was great.
Also like that you get a big bowl of veg between you all (as I am not a fan and think it's a waste on my plate)

We stayed for one night, Chris was a super host and couldn't do enough to help. All the staff were friendly and the food was really good. The room was comfortable and clean and the Black sheep was a nice touch. Will certainly being making another visit.

Stayed at the Bay Horse Inn for one night proceeding a trip into York.
The 5pm check-in was somewhat late as we got there a lille early but ecided to have a ride into Thirsk then return.
Upon our return we where met by the landlord Chris who is a fantastic host. He showed us to our room and left us to it.
Our room (room 7) was very nice, very comfy bed and had all we required.
We went down for dinner and the menu is presented on a large blackboard in the lounge area of the pub.
The food was absolutly fantastic.......much better than expected for such a small pub. In fact it was far better than most restaurants i have visited. I would recommend eating here.
After dinner we had a wonderful walk through the countryside surrounding the pub as it ws a lovely summer evening.
All in all a great stay with wonderful food. Thanks Chris.

A quiet and quaint location, but ease of access to the M1 aswell as both the neighbouring National Parks. A pleasant welcome, and everything we needed for a night away. We didn't eat in the evening here, but breakfast was delicious. A very comfortable nights sleep was had by us both. We'd certainly stay here again if in the area.
