Feel Like A Trip Out

Should you be on the East Coast this summer and fancy visiting somewhere different, try the Bay Horse at Terrington. The village stands in the Howardian Hills not far from Castle Howard, about 6 miles off the main A64. (On the left when travelling from York). The village is not sign posted from the main road but is not hard to find and is a lovely place.

Its greatest feature, in my humble opinion, is the Bay Horse. A large pub set back on the left hand side of the road. It serves food of a high standard but my reason for a visit was to sample the beer from the Storyteller Brewery based on the premises and I was not disappointed.

There were three beers on the bar, two were light and hoppy (Genesis at 3.8% and 1402 at 4%) and the other, Telltale was a bit darker at 3.8%. All were in great form and very moreish, though since it seems the only way to reach the village is to drive, some restraint is necessary.

The pub is open 12-3 daily and every evening, so if you have had a day at the coast and the thought of travelling back on the A64 is a drag, go off into the beautiful countryside and see what the place has to offer. I was very impressed.

I would have included a photo but left my camera at home !!! (pic courtesy of wherecanigo.net)
