The Bay Horse Inn


The Bay Horse Inn is housed in a striking black and white timbered 18th Century Coaching Inn in the Trough of Bowland, and feels very rural despite being a short drive from the M6. The charming mismatched furniture and log fires of this family-run establishment provide a warm, relaxed atmosphere. The Bay Horse Inn is popular with locals and is a good pit stop for parents visiting their children at the nearby universities.

What cuisine is on offer at The Bay Horse Inn?

Al fresco dining is an option in the back garden which leads onto the kitchen's own herb garden which serves simple, imaginative dishes using fresh, Lancashire ingredients and Lakeland produce.

What is the signature dish at The Bay Horse Inn?

Favourites include Andrew Ireland's black pudding with carrot relish and mustard dressing, potted Morecambe Bay shrimps, Swainson Farm duckling with prunes, elderberry wine and potato purée.

What makes a meal at The Bay Horse Inn unique?

Local produce is booming, with its lush, fertile farming land, rugged hills and beautiful coastline. Just a short drive from the restaurant you'll find Johnson and Swarbick's famous Goosnargh poultry producers, Dewlay Cheese, Port of Lancaster Smokehouse, Walling's Dairy and Honeywell Meats, all within a half hour.
