Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good wholesome food from a wide choice menu....in a nice old country pub with good service and good range of drinks in nice bar plus nice outside seating area in a lovely part of country. Handy for so many Northumberland attractions or on your way...up north....worth dropping in.More

This place may come up on top of the reviews in the area but i really don’t know why. We stayed near by and as it was a Monday night and there wasn’t much other choice in the area, we visited this place for dinner....We had looked on line and had seen that they serve food in the dining room from 6.30pm. We arrived at 6.20pm asked at the bar if they were serving food on this night to be told yes. We ordered a drink and sat in the bar waiting to be called for a table on the advice of the bar staff. There was no one else in the pub eating at this time and half a dozen believe locals at the bar. We were still there at 6.50pm and we had been completely ignored! At which point we got up and left. How rude to treat any customers like this considering that you probably don’t get a great amount of passing trade at this time of year. Note to self, trust the reviews of others, because this has been mentioned previously. Only gave this one star because you can’t give any less!!!More

Had Sunday carvery roast lunch today which was very good; three roasts: pork, beef and ham, all of which were excellent. Great Yorkshire puds and good not overcooked vegetables. Sat in dog friendly pub side rather than restaurant which was fine. Staying on holiday in...lodge in village and will be back. Highly recommended as both village drinking pub and good pub food. Do Take Aways and have accomodation as well.More

Walked in from East Woodburn whilst we were baby sitting 6 month old granddaughter. Not booked but were made very welcome and found a quiet spot for the buggy. Decided on the Sunday Roast which was perfect in every way. All 3 of the meat...options beef, pork and ham were cooked beautifully with a wide selection of condiments. Veggies spot on - good selection and very tasty. Don’t usually get excited by carveries as my partner’s cooking is just the best but we both enjoyed this meal so much we felt the need to post a review! Compliments to the chef who was also very friendly and welcoming. We paired the food with a rose and a pint of the Bay Horse ale - both went down well. In all a lovely time was had which can be tricky when you’re pushing a baby buggy around and asking for things to be heated in the microwave. Many Thanks to everyone who made this a great visit! We’ll certainly be back.More

We had a voucher for a 2 night stay and had a really great time. Our room was large and characterful & had everything you need. We are breakfast one day which was lovely & good value. We dined in the bar on both evenings...and the food was excellent. The bar had a great atmosphere and was busy with locals - a proper pub with pool table, dart board & jukebox & a nice outside area. Staff were all great, especially Harvey behind the bar. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. Fantastic value for money.More

Do not under any circumstances stay here. Awful. Kept awake by water system or boiler system. No one answers the night emergency number. Impossible to get hold of anyone out of hours.

Don’t expect to get served or even attended to here. Not interested in people stopping on the way to or from Scotland. Waited in a dining room full of dirty tables with an unattended carvery for ages. Asked an Uninterested bar attender twice who said...to sit in this room. Rang a bell, no response. Waited and waited. Eventually asked this man again in the bar who got a sour faced rude lady to come through into the dining room. She started to clear dirty plates and reluctantly told us that she would get the chef. Instead of waiting for the chef my daughter and I left. We felt totally disregarded and that our custom wasn’t wanted. So don’t pop in there expecting to be served or even talked to pleasantly as you will certainly not receive a friendly polite welcome here. Avoid at all costs!More

Stayed two nights in March. Have to say the staff were great, very friendly and pleasant. The food was excellent in the bar as was the cooked breakfast which was well above average in terms of quality and quantity. The room was somewhat dated but...still well equipped. The ensuite shower cubicle was a preformed unit - reminding me of the ensuite in a ferry cabin - but was perfectly functional and clean. The bar was fairly busy on Friday night with young farmers (I think) but was no trouble and they had left by 11ish so no disturbances. Saturday had an anniversary party downstairs but again absolutely no disturbances to us. I would be happy to stay again and recommend to others too.More

We were staying locally in West Woodburn and this quaint local family run hostelry was the closest to us so we had to try it. We were not disappointed. Lovely staff, excellent food. You must try the Jedburgh Haggis with Neeps & Tatties. It might...be because I live in Gloucestershire or I have just lived a sheltered life but I have never seen Haggis on a menu before. Anyway it was excellent and one of the most tastiest dishes I have enjoyed in a long time. I visit Northumberland every few years as I have extended family there and next time the Bay Horse Inn is top of my list to visit again. Thank you to the lady behind the bar and the Chef for an enjoyable evening and I will see you again.More

We were staying in the locality and had Sunday Lunch here from the Servery, we were quite a large party of 12 and the staff were most accommodating. There was a choice from three meats, I chose the Turkey, and the food was excellent, everyone...was very happy with their choices. Vegetarian options are also available and cooked to order. Desserts were home made (by Hilda) and delicious. This is really the only catering option in the village so it was a relief that it was so nice. There is also a takeaway menu which could be very useful for visitors in the area.More
