We really enjoy the dining experience. The menu is different every time we go and we have enjoyed it on multiple visits. Wish its sister restaurant, Muse, could offer consistently good food.

The Bay Horse retains an emphasis on the finer details of a real old English pub, hand pulled local ales in dimple glasses and side dishes served in copper pans. The menu is made up of classic British cooking with a twist & has a strong emphasis on flavours & presentation. The premise has achieved a Michelin Bib Gourmand for the last four years.
