user reviews of the Bay Horse, Scholes

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Good pub in a quiet village setting. Has a decent enough selection of real ales, including Bradfield Farmers Blonde and Kelham's Pale Rider, although the rest were a little more predictable - Landlord etc.
If there is one thing that spoils this place from being up there with the best however are the cost of the drinks which have been a little high now for some time. Even taking in the current cost of pubs, they are high here - 3.04 per pint and a massive 3.31 for the stronger Pale Rider.
If you are travelling up the M1 near junction 35, you could do worse than drive the few miles to this cosy retreat, just don't expect much for your money when at the bar.

well worth a visit. Food excellent, reasonably priced and good portions. Beer is fantastic, well kept and usually about 6 beers on tap, good range of breweries. Jaipur and Old Leg Over and Landlord seem to be regulars. Loads of CAMRA awards.

Excellent country pub 2-3 minutes off the main road. It was a very warm summers day on my visit so I elected to sit outside. 4-5 cask ales were available, but only 1 particularly took my fancy, the Daleside Old Leg Over. It was in a decent nick. The pub was empty inside, owing to the warm weather, and I elected to enjoy my second pint, this time Thornbridge Jaipur, watching the cricket next door - an excellent setting for a few beers in the summer. The landlord was pretty friendly, and I think this pub would be excellent for quiet conversation and relaxing during the Winter. Worth a visit.

a lovely country pub on the main road through the tiny village of Scholes.
the pub faces directly out on to the road, and has its own carpark to the rear.
***
inside, there is a comfortable modern bar area at the front, with tv, pool table, and open log fire for winter. around to the side and rear of the central bar is a larger area mainly for diners. the place is clean and comfortable, and claims to have an enviable menu. Surprisingly, there were 6 cask ales available from various breweries.
***
verdict:
whilst the pub was nice. it was [perhaps understandably] more focussed toward the local regulars present than visitors. I also caught a couple of worried looks from the landlord at my attire [sweat top & walking boots]. however all were clean as a whistle so his concern was unwarranted. so it appears despite the existence numerous local footpaths and adjacent ancient coppice woodland, I sensed a slight holstility toward walkers.
best to judge for yourself.
a 7 from me.
