My wife and I picked a lovely, sunny weekend to tour Yorkshire and were very happy with our choice of The Bay Horse Inn.
Masham is a very nice town (well, any town with two breweries is OK by me!) and we enjoyed a very pleasant walk along the riverbank in the afternoon sunshine. Plenty of parking in the square adjacent to the pub and the suggested parking fee for the honesty box is 50p - a refreshing change from the southern culture of Pay and Display.
Our room was very nice - recently refurbished with a modern bathroom, brilliant shower and large wall-mounted flat screen TV opposite the bed. It was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. I understand some of the rooms are still awaiting modernisation, but if the rest of the refurbished rooms are up to the same standard as ours they will be fine. The room was at the front, directly by the road. Quite a busy road by day but no real problem with early morning traffic. We stayed on a Sunday night and the pub was very quiet after about 9 pm.
Food and drink-wise we could find no fault. A fine selection of beers and friendly bar staff. We both had a Sunday roast which was really excellent and breakfast was terrific - high quality local produce and plenty of it.
This is a pub, not a hotel, and I have rated it as such. We will most certainly stay there again next time we are in the area.
