we arranged to meet friends here on August 12th, only to find that is has closed and there is an Estate Agent's "For Sale" sign in the front. We went to the Agar Arms in the next village, and that was fine.

My Husband doesnt normally have a pudding but couldnt resist with a good old apple pie and custard. He was not disapointed. Its great to see the old classics on the menu. Booked again for... More

With ample parking and a large dining area this traditional pub looks inviting. Very quiet on the night we visited. Reasonable choices on the menu, house specials and large portions of homemade food. The quality was exceptional high and the friendly service rounded off the evening We will be back to try the Sunday menu

Me and my son stopped off while riding back to Leeds from Beverley, for some well earned re-fuelling. It is only 50 yards off the route, so very convenient for cyclists. It was quiet for a Sunday lunchtime, but we got a friendly greeting. I had the full Sunday lunch which was excellent, washed down with a nice pint. My... More

When we arrived on a Friday evening the pub was virtually empty. The fish and chips should have been labelled 'batter and chips' as there was a distinct lack of fish. A teaspoon sized portion of mushy peas seemed a bit penny pinching. The chicken pie was marginally better but the best meal was the burger. Only three out of... More

Ordered food and sat to wait looking through dirty windows with the remnants of Christmas snow scenes onto dead hang baskets. The sign outside was ten days out of date advertising the Tour de Yorkshire bike race. Food came we were the only ones eating at that time. Fantastic onion rings tasty home made burgers and well cooked chips. Loved... More

This was our first and last visit! Our table, surroundings and cuttlery were dirty which didn't bode well for the food. A man brought our food, scowled and didn't say a word! We ordered chicken pie with veg. The chicken and sauce tasted foisty and our pastry top was hard and burnt. We couldn't identify all the veg which was... More

The Bay Horse Beautiful English pub in Murton Take a step inside the Bay Horse and you'll soon appreciate the warm hospitality of this delightful 18th Century pub. Boasting a real log fire and exposed beams, the Bay Horse at Murton is a popular local pub that's perfect for those exploring the local area or just out on a country walk. We have a huge beer garden that is always popular in the summer - not much beats having a refreshing pint of your favourite ale unwinding on a warm summers evening. Equally though in winter you can gaze out onto the garden as the snow falls whilst feeling the flickering heat of the real log fire keeping you warm.Keep an eye out for our special BBQ nights in the summer. They are really great affairs for family and friends. Traditional English FayreWe have both a bar and a dining area. You can enjoy your freshly cooked meal knowing that it's been prepared using the finest local ingredients. We always source locally as it's not just good for the environment and local economy, but it just seems to taste nice too. For the real ale drinker we stock a good range of quality real ales. You will find that we have a large car park and a smoking area too.
