Quaint country pub

Greeted with a warm friendly welcome.

Staff were so nice, really felt looked after from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. Good home cooked food at a reasonable price. Would definitely stay again.

First rate service, accommodation, food & drink.

A very good choice me made, we were made very welcome and given a very nice room.

This was just a stop-over on the way home from a holiday in the north of England, my husband said it was the best night's sleep he had all week. The food was very good (far too much) enough scampi for two people on one plate, excellent salad served in a separate bowl, nicely dressed and twice as many very good chips as we needed. We will definitely stay here again, nice quiet village just off the A1.

Our Weekend Break at the Bayhorse Inn Rainton Thirsk

We would like to say what a wonderful place this is to stay.

The Inn was very homely full of character and our room was spacious clean and very comfortable. The food menu choice and service was excellent, The food was well presented tasty plentiful and locally sourced meat or fish dishes with fresh salad or vegetables and they do cater for vegetarians. You could eat dinner either in the restaurant or the bar. Thank you Chris and Bev for your hospitality, warm welcome and very hearty full English breakfast each morning. We will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Hotel

Everything about the hotel was brilliant.

It is a small country pub but the atmosphere within the place is welcoming and inviting. The food was plentiful and delicious and really good value for money. The rooms were extremely clean. The floors creaked a lot, but this only added to the character of the place. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and will definitely re-visit.

Great for a getaway

Very friendly and professional reception from the landlord.

First impressions of the room were great. We were rather disappointed by the vegetarian evening menu so we ate elsewhere. Room was clean and comfortable but the sash window was broken and the door rattled. It was quite noisy being situated above the pub. Great views. Our visit was rounded off with an excellent breakfast with vegetarian sausage options. Landlord was really accommodating and provided an outstanding service.

Bay horse is a good bet

Had a smashing stay, Chris (mine Host) was friendly and more than helpful, room was clean n fine with a plentiful and abundance pf Tea n Coffee making stuff.

The Star pf the Show had to be the Food which was a credit to any chef and responsible adding inwanted inches to our waists.

break away

My fiancée and myself managed to get a weekend off together so I booked the bay horse country inn for a night away from it all.

The welcome on arrival was very friendly and welcoming by the landlord. The room was very clean and just what we needed. The food at night was amazing and the staff are very eager to please and nothing is a problem to them. And the breakfast is to die for. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an over night stay or even longer.
