It’s a strange old time for all of us at the moment but we are determined to continue serving our community and our customers in whatever ways we can.  As we are in North Yorkshire we have been place in tier 2 which means we can open but only serve alcohol with substantial meals.  Unfortunately, household mixing is not allowed indoors so you can only visit us with members of your own household.  Everything will be reviewed again on 16thDecember but be assured we are ready with plan A, B and C!!!

We are taking bookings throughout the festive period including Christmas Day and Boxing Day and we will also be doing a takeaway and delivery service including Christmas Day.

If you can’t come to the pub this Christmas, we will bring the pub to you!  (Please note, due to elf and safety requirements we regrettably cannot deliver food down your chimney)!

As a proud independent, local family business we really do value your support on there are a number of additional services we can provide at the moment.

Our gift vouchers make a brilliant Christmas Gift that people can use for meals, groceries from our online shop or to get a takeaway meal. You could treat a friend or relative to Christmas lunch from us!

Our online shop also has a number of other options for Christmas gifts.  From our luxury Cheese hampers to cask ale mini kegs and our specially selected wine hampers you could buy some brilliant gifts from us and know you’re helping to support a local business during a tough time.

We can take all the hard work out of your Christmas cooking by providing ready meals prepared to our restaurant spec, all ready for you to cook at home or we can deliver hot meals to your door on the big day itself and throughout the festive season.

We’d love to see you this Christmas but we completely understand if you can’t get to see us.  We’ll be ready and waiting when better times are upon us.

We send you all our love and best wishes and we can’t wait to welcome you again soon.

Merry Christmas

Alan and all the team at The Bay Horse.
