The Bay Horse is steeped in history which remains a key feature of the pub, originally a Burgage in the time of King Edward I and is said to have been frequented by Oliver Cromwell. It’s famous for its delicious food menu full of pub favourites and serves a quality range of drinks including cask marque accredited ales.

The Bay Horse is spread over two floors and boasts two bars. Guests enter the pub into the first which is perfect for a relaxed drinking experience. Next door is the main bar area which has a cosy, comfortable atmosphere and seating for dining.

The pub also benefits from a first floor restaurant which is home to the famous Sunday carvery. Outside is a stunning secluded drinking area with plenty of sheltered seating which can be enjoyed all year round.
