The food and drink scene in Britain is unrecognisable from around a decade ago, and York exemplifies this national (r)evolution.

Welcome to the Bay Horse Inn, originally a Burgage in the time of King Edward 1st the Bay Horse housed Cromwellian officers during the English Civil War. Tradition has it that Cromwell himself stayed here circa 1640. Indeed reflecting these troubled times a ‘Hidehole’ has been discovered between the walls. During its long history ‘the Bay’ is known to have had its own Stables, Brewhouse, Cottages and Orchard and has always been associated with the Towns fishermen.
