There is nothing on the menu suitable for vegans and when we asked if they could make us something vegan, anything vegan, the manager couldn't have been more unhelpful. It is surprising that in today's day and age that a restaurant has nothing vegan on...More

We dined at the Bay Horse on Saturday(26th August 2017). We were met by some delightful young staff, and then it went down hill from there. We ate there a few years ago and had forgotten that the landlady was very unwelcoming. Nothing has changed...More

Description
The Bay Horse Hotel is a 17th century coaching inn nestled alongside the Levens Estuary with fantastic panoramic views. Often described as a hidden gem, it is a place to suit all tastes and budgets, whether it be morning coffee, home made ice cream, a bar snack or celebratory meal. Always a warm welcome from the staff, a log fire in the winter and picnic benches to enjoy the views on fine days. Just one mile out of Ulverston town centre, why not walk down Britain's shortest, widest and deepest canal to find a hidden treasure, The Bay Horse Hotel.
