We really enjoyed our visit after many years. Food was tasty and good value. Only 2 people serving at bar (food & drinks) resulted in having to queue longer than you would expect or have liked.

Visited the Bay Horse for a meal in Jan 2019. The Korean chicken starter and rump steak main courses were superbly cooked and great value for money. A good selection of real ales also available. Will definitely be returning soon and would highly recommend.

Called in for a couple of hours and a few drinks. Good, friendly atmosphere which caters mainly for locals. Decor a bit dated. Toilets horrible. Staff were friendly but slow. Drinks quite expensive.

Visited recently for lunch. We were impressed with the menu choices, and the pub itself was lovely. We were initially very pleased with the food, which tasted lovely. However, we both found hairs in our dishes which meant we had to send the food back....More

Everything is great - I have been back, even the next night! One thing I'd like to change - wish they changed the menu more often! 2 sizes of each main meal available - you need to be ravenous for the big one!
