Thanks to everyone who helped make it a very special and memorable Christmas here.
It was such a busy, joyful time and it felt as though the whole village shared at least part of it with us.
We are bursting with new ideas for the coming year, not just to consolidate on our first two years,
but to make everything we do better and bring more and more people in to enjoy what we have to offer here at the Bay Horse Inn. We are committed to ensuring this beautiful village retains its pub at its heart for many years to come.
We wish you all health, happiness and prosperity for the new year and a whole exciting new decade.

Wow - it's been two years since this project began and our investors took the Bay Horse back into local ownership.
We can hardly believe it. We have made it through the ups and downs of our first eighteen months and we are still here!
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.
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.
Or have a look at this interactive presentation (it's best in full screen mode):
Many thanks to Andrew Stephenson MP for his support, and for cutting the ribbon on our Grand Opening. We have a few pictures here.
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.
