We’re passionate about creating special moments, with delicious food and great music in a beautiful space.

After a quarter of a million pound refurbishment, The Bay Horse has become one of the most beautiful and acclaimed restaurants in the city of Chelmsford. Reputed to be the oldest tavern in Chelmsford, this Grade II listed Tudor building has been lovingly restored and renovated, combining modern design with period features to create a bright and airy space. There’s free parking aplenty, and in summer months the large terrace provides a gorgeous sun-trap in which to enjoy the weather (and a Pimms or two!)

Masters of molecular gastronomy, the award-winning chefs at The Bay Horse prepare a delicious menu, with each dish cooked freshly from the finest, locally sourced, organic ingredients.

Every Tuesday The Bay Horse prepare the finest artisan burgers in Chelmsford. The choicest cuts of beef are available on Wednesdays for Steak night, where you can take advantage of the “two steaks for £20” offer. From Monday to Thursday cocktails are 2-4-1. Every weekend the best musicians in the city perform from 9pm, providing a great atmosphere and entertaining the friendly clientèle into the night. Sundays mean delicious roast dinners and fine entertainment at The Bay Horse.

If you haven’t been to The Bay Horse since it’s refurb, it’s high time you put that right. The food simply tastes outstanding!

A very enjoyable dining experience, made even better by the friendly staff. Highly recommended – That might be the best Sunday roast I’ve ever had!
