Visited the Bay Horse after a recommendation from work colleagues and it was definitely one the best meals I've had this year.
Booked online (easy and quick), got there 15 minutes early but table was ready for us. Lovely atmosphere overall and the two waitresses were very attentive, quick and friendly: excellent customer service.
My husband didn't know which ale to have, so they brought over some samplea for him to try - nice touch.
And now for the main thing: food was so tasty and well presented, it was an amazing experience for the eyes as well as your tastebuds! Presentation was impecable. I had potato salad with chorizo and greens to start with (from the specials), baked hake with new potatoes, tomatoes and chorizo as main. Husband had pigeon breast with pickled cauliflower and black pudding to start with and braised beef with potato fondant and baked beans. To finish we shared mississipi mud cake with cream and sweet potato pie with peanut butter and orange coulis - they were both out of this world! I wish I had taken photos now, but phone was dead.
Overall a fantastic experience, we were so impressed and happy with our meal. We are definitely going back next time we are in Chelmsford.
