WELCOME

Welcome to the Bay Horse website! We are a well established Manchester institution, situated in the heart of the bohemian Northern Quarter, in the centre of town. 

We are a warm, inviting space where you can eat to your hearts content, chill out and catch up with friends and listen to a variety of music.

wholesome food

We offer a beautiful selection of handmade, locally sourced and wholesome food with veggie options a-plenty! 

See the Bay Horse page for more information and a full menu...

THOMAS STREET

We live on Thomas Street, one of the bloodlines of Manchester's Northern Quarter. The Northern Quarter is an alternative and hipster district filled to the brim with independent eateries, bars, coffee houses and vintage shops, as well as being a Mecca for music lovers and DJs nationwide. It's creativeness and quirkiness means the area is constantly changing, but we at the Bay Horse are here to stay and love the fact the area, only properly established in the early 2000s, is always the place to be - so much so that many movies are filmed here and songs named after it! 

LIVE MUSIC

Live music has always played a role in our heritage and we continue to showcase weekly music events from Open Mic nights to regular rotating DJs, impromptu gigs and evenings dedicated to the old age art of vinyl. See our 'What's Going On' page for the upcoming weeks events!

Saddle Club


Over the past three years, our downstairs has gone through a big change, it has been converted into a stylish cocktail bar, aptly named Saddle Club. The downstairs vibe is both casual and hip with its funky hand-painted walls and saloon style atmosphere.

Yvonne Goldsmith-Rybka & Nicky Rybka Goldsmith - Owners

Yvonne & Nicky met at Manchester Metropolitan University many years ago and have been pretty inseparable ever since! After opening The Bay Horse in 2004, they went on to launch Soup Kitchen and Thomas Restaurant & Bar. In 2013 they made the decision to scale back their operations (but holding on to their beloved Bay Horse, the original and the best) in order to both pursue their own individual creative paths. Nicky is now an established fashion stylist working in both commercial and high end fashion; and Yvonne has followed her love of both food and travel as a writer and photographer, currently holding the post of Food Editor at VIVA magazine.

Chris Verrall - General Manager

Chris came to Manchester to study and see what all the fuss was about with the ‘Madchester’ scene of music and clubs. Having worked at the Polytechnics’ Student Union he had his first taste of life in the bar industry. Returning to London he began managing larger venues, including both The Ministry of Sound, and Dingwalls in Camden which combined his passion for live music with the business he had come to realise was his calling! Never quite shaking off his time in Manchester (who does?) he returned to open HOME Nightclub in what was then one of Urban Splash's first major developments on Ducie Street. It was in fact here he first met Nicky and Yvonne as they worked their way through Uni; years later they jumped at the chance when Chris applied to their post for a General Manager and they've never looked back

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lyndsey Currie - Saddle Club Manager

Coming from a long line of Curries that love their food and their drink, Lyndsey has now been in this industry for over fifteen years. For the last three years Lyndsey has supported Chris in the running of The Bay Horse, along with a hands on approach in our kitchen and in developing it's menus, indeed many a Currie recipe has made its’ way onto the final list! With extensive experience in mixology, it seemed only natural for Lyndsey to take on the role of Saddle Club Manager. Her passion for taking classic cocktails and turning them into more accessible modern drinks will be the focus for her first menu launching this October. We can't wait!

 

Lewis Mclean - Graphic Designer

Lewis and his twin David's' borderline obsession with music means they have played in bands since the age of seventeen, having toured Europe various times and also further afield including Japan, USA, and Canada. Born in Dumfries (Scotland) and raised in Bletchley (Milton Keynes), his travelling has given Lewis an insight into other cultures with exposure to different values and built his excellent social skills. Having moved to Manchester 2010, he has pursued his passion for art and graphic design, and had the great opportunity to work for Tombed Visions Records, Fat Out and The Bay Horse Pub, where he designs all menus, event posters, and the layout of this website!
