Visited tonight as preferred choice had electric faults in the kitchen but was more than happy with my visit. Staff were very attentive and the food was well presented and good quality pub food, perhaps with a little bit of a twist (i.e. live camera on kitchen griddle) and exceptional choice of Steaks cooked very as requested. Will certainly return... More

Went out for a special occasion. Food and service were excellent and the overall atmosphere of The Bay Horse added to the occasion. Will definitely be returning soon.

Lovely meal, very friendly and helpful staff. Good, well cooked food, bit large portions. Fair price. Staff attended to us promptly and our food came quickly, piping hot and tasty. This is 3rd visit recently and always the same lovely experience.

We chose this at Random and were impressed by the location (village green), the welcome (friendly and warm), the atmosphere (roaring log fire) and most importantly the food. My wife had a homemade runny scotch egg and I had King Prawns to start with. The Egg was particularly impressive. For our mains I chose a roast beef in red wine... More
