Description: The Bay Horse Beautiful English pub in Murton Take a step inside the Bay Horse and you'll soon appreciate the warm hospitality of this delightful 18th Century pub. Boasting a real log fire and exposed beams, the Bay Horse at Murton is a popular local pub that's perfect for those exploring the local area or just out on a country walk. We have a huge beer garden that is always popular in the summer - not much beats having a refreshing pint of your favourite ale unwinding on a warm summers evening. Equally though in winter you can gaze out onto the garden as the snow falls whilst feeling the flickering heat of the real log fire keeping you warm.Keep an eye out for our special BBQ nights in the summer. They are really great affairs for family and friends. Traditional English FayreWe have both a bar and a dining area. You can enjoy your freshly cooked meal knowing that it's been prepared using the finest local ingredients. We always source locally as it's not just good for the environment and local economy, but it just seems to taste nice too. For the real ale drinker we stock a good range of quality real ales. You will find that we have a large car park and a smoking area too.

Me and my son stopped off while riding back to Leeds from Beverley, for some well earned re-fuelling. It is only 50 yards off the route, so very convenient for cyclists. It was quiet for a Sunday lunchtime, but we got a friendly greeting. I had the full Sunday lunch which was excellent, washed down with a nice pint. My son went for the beef baguette, which he enjoyed. We sat in the beer garden which was very pleasant and sheltered from the wind. We will definitely stop over again if we are on the same route.

When we arrived on a Friday evening the pub was virtually empty. The fish and chips should have been labelled 'batter and chips' as there was a distinct lack of fish. A teaspoon sized portion of mushy peas seemed a bit penny pinching. The chicken pie was marginally better but the best meal was the burger. Only three out of five dared to try the sweets. The two apple crumbles were passable but the ginger sponge was crunchy and took some effort to break up, let alone chew! The place lacked atmosphere and we must have had the same table as a previous reviewer as we were looking out of windows with fake snow on. Luckily we are an easy going family and found the whole experience laughable but won't be returning.

Ordered food and sat to wait looking through dirty windows with the remnants of Christmas snow scenes onto dead hang baskets. The sign outside was ten days out of date advertising the Tour de Yorkshire bike race.
Food came we were the only ones eating at that time. Fantastic onion rings tasty home made burgers and well cooked chips.
Loved the laminated history of the pub on each table. It was obviously a well lived local hostelry at or time and I think it could be again. They were expecting the local tug of war team who hopefully would give the place a bit of a buzz and atmosphere .
Try visiting at the weekend. Our visit was Tuesday 12 th May our 31st wedding anniversary.
I hope for the sake of the pub the owners take on board the comments and pay attention to detail. It could be a valued local pub again.
