We enjoyed our meal, social distancing was adhered to So we were comfortable. Prices slightly high but we’ve found most places have increased the cost of food
Party of 4, made very welcome by restaurant/hotel staff. Excellent roast beef and all the trimmings and good selection of puddings. Menu varied and good. Wood burning stove, lovely atmosphere and decor. Couldnt fault it.
Really nice good, nice wine. Good service and great location
We had a lovely meal with delicious food and great service!
Lovely lunch in a beautiful setting. All precautions taken to minimise the risk of coronavirus.
Always excellent service! Food was great again and look forward to returning soon.
Very good COVID measures - felt safe eating here. Good beer and cider. Food excellent.
It was my wife’s birthday dinner and she thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening.
A number of problems during our meal, incorrect meals arriving at the table, we then waited 5 minutes for a soup spoon to be provided to enable one of the guests to eat her starter. As tucked in a corner and with the restaurants one way system in place we did feel it was hard to get the attention of members of staff and we waited for about 10-15 minutes for a member of staff to attend to us when initially arrived. When we requested the bill a number of items were overcharged which the waitress indicated had been a problem on the till all day!! We have dined at the Bay Horse before and we were very impressed however, our experience this time will likely put us of visiting again.
Excellent meal, very generous portions - couldn't eat it all unfortunately. I had the pork schnitzel which was delicious! Highly recommended. Very pleasant staff.
The food and service were very good. The staff wear facemasks.
The only downside was that the other customers didn't seem to think facemask wearing is required in pubs when not sat down.
Staf didnt remind them.
There was an opportunity to do this when people walk in off the street and have to wait to be seated.
A beautifully presented establishment even in these COVID times we felt very welcome. Both the food and service were faultless. My partner had to check the bill as she thought we had been under charged! Great service, great food and great value. We will definitely be returning.
Food and service very good, a little quite due to being a Monday evening and Covid.would like to stay when we are back to something like normal. Three of us had steak and it was very good
The Sunday lunch was delicious, one of the best we’ve had whilst eating out.
Good food, quiet when we went, staff friendly. New look dining rooms welcoming.
We enjoyed an early Evening meal. The fish and chips and scampi and chips were excellent. We shared a cheesecake with fruit compote and that was delicious too. The service was very good too.
Second meal at this lovely restaurant You won’t come away hungry
So lovely to be back at the Bay Horse in Goldsborough once again & to see it after all its thoughtful renovations. The food was delicious & in the very relaxed surroundings, we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We’re looking forward to being able to sit in the lovely garden when the sun shines. Fantastic to see it being well supported & also to see their careful attention to the appropriate protection against Covid. We shall most certainly return!
Excellent, very attentive staff, good choice of inexpensive food, which on both occasions was very good, we will definitely go back if in the area again. Would definitely recommend
Friendly atmosphere. Food delivered hot and good service with friendly and attentive staff. Tried numerous gins after meal they were great too. Defiantly go again
The dining experience was well delivered by a very heavily Tattooed, very friendly, helpful and entertaining waiter The quality of the food was good but without suitable accompanying elements was somewhat plain. Quantity of food for the main elements on the plate was generous. Our appetites were sated but lacked finesse. The experience overall was good and we chose to dine a second night with visiting friends.
Had a great Sunday lunch. Very traditional, roast dinner, Yorkshire pudding and impressive veg. Ingredients seemed to be particularly good quality. Staff friendly and cheerful. Good value and compares favourably with other local pubs.
Everything about our meal was great, the food was timely and tasty. The service was polite and caring. The only thing that spoiled it was a party who spoke so loudly that we couldn't hear one another.
Do you know what ? It was absolutely super at The Bat Horse this visit (post lockdown!) September 2020. So truest a Gluten free Starter - they are not labelled on the menu but our server told us they could all be adapted. Luke, on duty that night, spared time for a chat to see how our meal was and was very knowledgeable and we and our guests from London all enjoyed great starters mains wine and beer. I liked it! We will go again
The food was excellent and the staff were friendly & knowledgeable.
I would highly recommend the black horse inn for a meal or overnight stay.
We are planning to come again as we enjoyed it so much
Great food and even more great friendly service - will definitely go back for sure
Good quality well presented food, attentive but not overly pushy staff, excellent wine and gin selection, good glassware.
Lovely venue, good staff, well organised regarding self distancing, lovely food and a great choice of beers, overall would highly recommend.
We were a party of 4 . The good and service were good. All relevant arrangements for COVID were in place. An enjoyable evening.
The Bay Horse came highly recommended though from before the Covid lockdown.
We arrived for our 4.00 reservation to find the pub shut and people waiting outside. It opened dead on 4.00, despite the sign saying open from 12.00. We were well received and shown to a very attractive table for two. The wine list seemed very expensive – the cheapest was nearly £20.00 a bottle. My wife chose Beef Rib and I chose Pie of the Day (Chicken & Pork). We then had a longish wait but we were in no hurry. However, we had to put up with loud voices presumably from the kitchen including one whose every second word started with an “F”! Rather off putting………….
The beef was excellent but I felt the pie was over seasoned and quite salty – the unusual chips were very good. My wife’s original choice of dessert was unavailable, and the Chocolate Fudge Cake was “disappointing”. I found the Treacle Tart good.
We left feeling we hadn’t had the memorable experience the recommendations had led us to expect.
Lots of choice, recommend the pork schnitzel and Cobb salad
A lovely refurbishment. Well done, we will come again.
Food was really good. When I asked for a certain pudding I asked what fruit was in he told me and I replied as long as it hasn't strawberry in. When the chef received this he checked with the supervisor he then came and checked with me with this I changed my pudding. So checking allergies 5 stars
Service let’s down the venue & the food, very poor
Excellent food and helpful service - Spacious and peaceful
Firstly the food was absolutely amazing, very reasonably priced too! The venue itself was so nicely done out as well. The only slight negative is that the service was a tad slow, when we were after a second drink. I can't complain though, they were all great at what they did! I will be coming back here, as it's such an amazing little place! Also, will be recommending this place to everyone!
On arrival we were told we had phoned and cancelled - we had not. Unfriendly waiter. Beef rib was 90% fat. Burgers were cheap bought in, not home made. Steak was small and fatty. All very overpriced. Rib was knocked off bill. Won’t be back.
Very nice food was lovely Evening the only thing I can say our table had a table were the back of a chair on our table was touching the chair on the table behind use . know one mitre between us
I would definitely recommend ..
Food delicious and service excellent..
Good food and table service efficient even though busy. Nice pint of Black Sheep.
First visit since make over and impressed with décor and lovely gardens. Toilets a bit cramped and one in due to Covd caused some confusion .
Look forward to another visit ( purchased a Travelzoo deal for later in year and will bring friends ).
