Very typical of a friendly traditional cosy pub with open fires, lovely real ales and good conversation. The food was home cooked, very reasonably priced and very very tasty, I would recommend the steak pie. We stayed one night in room 7, which was adequately sized, bed huge and very clean and comfortable. Bathroom clean and tidy, with fresh crisp...

We had a meal here in dec 14 and were very happy with the meal and service. Pub is warm and friendly with excellent beer. The town is lovely, picturesque but suffers from constant HGV 's squeezing through narrow town centre. Otherwise, great place for break.

I think that just about sums up what the owners of the Bay Horse are doing, 'blagging it'. I arrived completely open-minded, really looking forward to a night at the Bay Horse. I'd previously been in for a pint by the fire a yearish before and thoroughly enjoyed it, however this experience couldn't have been anymore more contradicting. We arrived...

The pub has a welcome feel with roaring open fires, however once you get past the bar, there are steep stairs to the rooms. Ours was on the top floor and was so small, it was difficult to get round the bed!! The bathroom was also small with a loo and shower and a very small hand basin. Fortunately everything...

Our annual trip for my uncles birthday celebrations this year was a night at the Bay Horse b&b. We had been the yr before for a quick drink by the fire whilst staying somewhere down the road. We assumed then it was a cosy place for next time. Total mistake! Our party of 8 arrived at different times on the...

Go here for a pint by the fire nothing more the whole rest of my experience was hell. For what you get here the rate is ridiculous. This is the first place I have ever walked out of when should be staying a night there and I'm young so more resilient than most people. There is a lot of illegal...

This place looks cosy and we booked to stay for a night with friends. We ordered a bottle of prosecco with 4 glasses, the bar maid said they only had 3 champagne flutes in the wool pub, she then gave me a very large wine glass to use as the fourth glass... It only got worse from here. We had...

This pub is in need of a makeover!!!! Our room was small and cold and the food was average at over average prices! Crockery and cutlery were decided grubby. The worst part was being told we couldn't have puddings as the kitchen was closed and could we vacate the table as the band wanted to set up!! Oh dear!!!!

An excellent pint, Fireside from Bury St. Edmunds, before the Masham fireworks. Friendly atmosphere with a nice crackling fire. Just the thing for a November evening. Local beers from the Theakston brewery also on tap.
