News & Events


We have a brand new menu to take us into the warmer months.
The firm favourites are all still there, but there are fresh new ideas and lighter options, all ready for what we like to think will be another spectacular summer. You can take a look right here.

The menu had it's debut over the long, sunny Easter weekend, and our new dishes went down a storm - especially the Tapas, and our 'Back to the Future' Chicken-in-a-Basket. Come along and try it for yourself in our newly refurbished Beer Garden.

About Us


A kitchen fire in Autumn 2016 forced the Bay Horse to close. The owners wanted to sell it for residential development, but fearing they would lose their pub forever, the villagers stepped in and raised almost half a million pounds to purchase the property.

Volunteers worked tirelessly to repair and renovate the building, and the new Tenants have refitted and refurbished throughout. You can see a selection of before and after pictures here.


After a special Investors Evening and a Village Preview night, we opened to the public on Saturday, 25th November. Many thanks to Andrew Stephenson MP for his support, especially in the ribbon-cutting department. We have a few pictures here.

We also have a gallery of pictures from the opening Investors' Evening here.

We were very busy over the Christmas period and our popularity has continued to grow through the winter and into a long-awaited spring. We would like to express our thanks to everyone - in the village and beyond - who has supported us. We hope you have all enjoyed yourselves as much as we have enjoyed serving you.

Keeping it Local

The investors didn’t want to try and run a pub and restaurant themselves, so they looked for a partner to take on that role as a commercial opportunity.

Chris and Adrienne Swarbrick moved to the village in 2010, and their sons Joe & Jack have both worked in hospitality for years. They presented a business plan to the investors, who saw a perfect opportunity for a family living in the village to run the village-owned pub.

The deal was agreed and the lease signed on 9th October, 2017.

Jack has now been joined full time by Joe to run the business, supported by Assistant GM Brett Nichols, Adrienne & Chris and our great team.

So please come and join us for quality unpretentious food, great beer, fine wines & spirits, good company and a very warm welcome.
