The place we were supposed to be going was closed so called in here as we walked by. Very friendly staff and the food was lovely and fresh. All the portions were huge and very well priced too.

Would definitely recommend.

We found that this pub was one of the few dog friendly pubs in Manchester. As we did not know Manchester the pub was a bit difficult to find but we did eventually. They did welcome our small dog. The food choice was a bit limited but the pizza we ordered was freshly made and base was obviously made to order. Prices very reasonable.

I've walked past this pub many times having been fooled by the normal looking exterior and normal sounding name compared to most in the vicinity. It was a pleasant surprise and not at all normal.
The interior takes on a modern country theme with excellent seats which are very comfy. Easy sociable venue to pass a few hours in or an excellent addition to a NQ pub crawl.

"2nd visit to the Bay horse, first time for a drink. This time called in for a drink and a meal, having seen meals served last week.
Nice chilled out bar, great music and friendly staff. I choose the Steak pie,my partner had the fish pie. The meals arrived very hot and freshly made, and very tasty!!
The pie's cost £8 and the pints we had £4.20 so really a cheap meal.
Deffo come back again!

Have visited The Horse Bay twice (always on Sunday) and must say that on both occasions the food was delicious (amazing chunky chips, freshly made pies). Moreover great music and atmosphere. Would recommend The Horse Bay as a great place for a Sunday afternoon chillout time, their pies as a good alternative to a sunday roast.
