We stayed at the Bay Horse for 3 nights and got a great deal as they were offering 3 nights for the price of 2. The stay was very relaxing with the all the staff being extremely friendly and helpful. We had Room 1 which was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well appointed (tea and coffee making facilities, complementary bottles of water and biscuits, flat screen TV and good powerful shower in the modern bathroom and free WiFi). You can have your breakfast at a time of your own choosing which is a nice touch as it means you can get up at a time to suit you, the breakfast itself was brilliant; a full english with cereal, toast, tea, coffee and juice, so much of it that there was no need for anything to eat until the evening. The owners Ken and Sharon are very friendly and on hearing that we were going racing at Ripon they very generously gave us their members badges which meant that it cost us nothing to get in. We also heard the other young lady who works there offering to make some phone calls to get some information on behalf of one of the other guests - in short it seems like nothing is too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend it as a place stay in the beautiful yorkshire dales.

A friend and I had a lovely 2 night stay. Ken and Sharon are great hosts. The pub is full of character. Excellent real ale. The food was way above the average pub grub. Dishes such as home made rabbit pie; stuffed pheasant breast etc. Bedrooms very comfortable and a good cooked to order breakfast. All in all great value and I will certainly stay again.

WOW!! The Bay Horse Inn is located right in the heart of Masham. you can park your car in the market place, just place some money into the Honesty Box. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and our rooms were ready, they were on the top floor rooms 5 & 6 they were well appointed (good double bed with a bathroom) flat screen TV. They were lovely and clean with complimentary water, Tea, Coffee and Biscuits. It was great ,we left the bags and walked to the Black Sheep brewery (5/10 minutes) - the Golden Sheep Beer is lovely. We then tried out the other pubs within Masham, but booked a table at The Bay Horse Inn for dinner although the pub upgrades the menu at 6pm all we wanted was a snack as soon as we asked they were more than delighted to make some Ham and pork hot baguettes. As I sat I saw that a lot of the tables were reserved as the food they were bringing out looked great, so I recommend that you reserve a table as it is a popular eating place. After the meal we let the husbands carry on drinking and myself and friend retired for the night. Even though we were at the heart of the village there was little noise and the beds were very comfortable. The night before they asked what time we would like our breakfast which again was very welcoming we said 9am. The next morning we all went down for breakfast (This was included in the £70 per room per night). As much tea, coffee and orange juice as you wanted, and cereals then we had a full English breakfast which was excellent which they made to you requirements i.e no black pudding. The English Breakfast was cooked to perfection!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent stay will be back and thank you for making us feel so welcome

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.

We stopped over for one night on our way to Scotland and got a very friendly welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable and we had a nice meal and even nicer beer :o) Breakfast was scrummy and very relaxed and our dog had great fun playing with the pup dog while we had our food. We recommended it to friends who stayed recently and was all good for them as well.
