We visit her annually, on our way to Northumberland, and it is always a treat. It isn't cheap but you get what you pay for. Excellent food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. The plated food represents small works of art...so clever and so tasty.

We booked an upstairs room for a family celebration. All meals beautifully presented and really lovely. Service was absolutely impeccable. If you’re planning a special celebration, then look no further.

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.
