I'm always a fan of the bay horse but today was absolutely outstanding,
Beautiful food, very well presented. Service was good thoroughly enjoyed my meal
Excellent from start to finish. Service was impeccable and it’s obvious that even the younger staff are well trained and know their stuff. Ambience was wonderful, the light fire pleasant and the aperitif drinks were lovely. Market menu was delicious, a really thoughtful, balanced menu and represented superb value for money. We left full, but not stuffed, and will definitely return sooner rather than later. Special thanks to Luke; who looked after us so well, and ignored my father’s increasingly stupid jokes as the night went on!
Excellent good and great service. Couldn’t do enough for us.
Superb food, relaxed atmosphere and great service. What more could you ask for?
Beautiful location, delicious food and wonderful staff :)
Excellent food, best scallop starter ever. Thank you
Wonderful meal , service . Outstanding flavours and choice of starters , sides and desserts
The food, as usual was fantastic and every plate looked wonderful. WELL DONE BAY HORSE!
Also, as usual, the staff were brilliant, KRISTOF, ANTHONY and CLOWEY.
Can't wait to go again!
Amazing food in a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Only issue was being served a non alcoholic G&T without warning but, otherwise, service was great. Attentive but not overbearing.
Great food and brilliant service. Will definitely be returning.
Excellent Sunday lunch as always. Very good service. My favourite place to eat.
Luke and his team were outstanding as always!

This lovely pub/restaurant is set in a beautiful village near Darlington
Have visited many times and always return, as food, service and surroundings are just perfect.
Such a great ambience and the staff are always so polite, and they always give a five star service. Cannot recommend enough this pub as the food is absolutely beautiful and so tasty. Excellent value.
The mini bread roll starters were amazing!
Delicious and creative cuisine with lovely service. Eating out doesn’t come much better than this!
As always the food was superb and the staff attentive. Would highly recommend the Bayhorse for any occasion.
A pleasure to return to The Bay Horse for their substantive quality Sunday lunch, as ever. Charming if slightly slow service, but they were busy.
Absolutely delicious food, lovely service, very friendly and attentive staff without being overbearing.
Our favourite restaurant!
Fabulous food but a little pricey, however you pay for what you get!
Food, service and overall place excellent and will return.
We had the most fantastic food and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable we can’t recommend this place enough 🎉👍🏻
An excellent meal and excellent staff.
Everyone very friendly and helpful
Lovely meal, with fantastic service. It’s been a while since we’ve been, and we really enjoyed it.
A beautiful meal in lovely surroundings. In our opinion this is a tremendous restaurant
Our Silver Wedding anniversary made even more special. The food is out of this world. So much choice on the menu, something to suit everyone. Everything was just perfect.
This is a beautiful place. It has a lovely ambience and is so tastefully done. The food is very good but you have to choose wisely. However, I think it was pretty pricey for what we had but the evening was lovely. Highlight for me was definitely the dessert platter. Expensive but worth it.
We really enjoyed our visit, and the food was lovely..beautifully presented and very tasty. We were in the area for an event and booked at the last minute..the staff were attentive and the decor was warm and intimate.
Would definately visit again if we are in the area.
Had Sunday lunch for my Wife’s Birthday.
Service and the food was excellent. Could have done with a little more gravy - but we asked for some and we given some straight away.
Will definitely return . Thanks to all the staff :)
This was a great find. Picked someone up at Darlington train station which is only a short drive away. Friendly service, really nice pub and an excellent Sunday lunch, especially the main course. Highly recommended.
I travel to the NE from Somerset regularly to visit my Uncle. I’ve always found it difficult to find somewhere with good food. We had Sunday lunch at The Bay Horse and I can say without a doubt it’s the best food we’ve eaten in the area. The staff were attentive and friendly, I couldn’t fault it. Well done.
From the moment we walked in the Bay Horse exceeded expectations. The staff were all friendly and professional, the food was delicious (we had three courses!) And the atmosphere very welcoming. We were planning our next visit before we ordered our coffee!
Local gem, very nice atmosphere classical british design, spacious and comfy. Amazing food and excellent service. Will come again definitely. Would be nice if they had a starter plat to share wit antipasti/ seafood etc. also in such good restaurant level please kindly please do NOT serve tap water. Itvis not Norway and tap water here is not really good quality, tasting a bit of chlorine. Other than that it is fantastic and excellent restaurant, good for any occasion as they also offer activity/ separate rooms.
An excellent night out in nice surroundings. Will most likely try agaian
In a wonderful village location, the staff made us very welcome. The food was cooked to perfection to a standard you’d expect from a Cordon Bleu restaurant. A good selection of wines were available too. The evening ambiance was set nicely for anyone wanting to celebrate or enjoy a romantic meal. I can’t recommend this lovely pub restaurant enough. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience on my birthday night out.
Really nice experience. Food and service were really good. Lovely ambience and great place to dine.
Chose the Market Menu. 3 courses for £30. Well presented courses and very tasty. Disappointed with the starter which was lovely but minuscule in size and too little to appreciate. The main course snd desert were very very nice.
We will return but just have two courses for £24 and omit the starter.
Last table in and felt a little rushed. Lovely food and friendly service. Only niggle was the scollops were cold.
First off, all the staff we came into contact with were very professional, extremely helpful, and just lovely.
The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and nicely lit.
And then the food. Wonderful. A flexible approach to adapt some dishes to our tastes presented no issues at all, and we left with smiles as well as full bellies.
We will return! Thank you to all at The Bay Horse :)
Sunday lunch was great. They were very accommodating as we had 2 very young children with us. Will definitely go back again.
