Lancashire Telegraph review by John Anson from November 1, 2008.

WEDNESDAY night is a good night to give the cooking stove a rest. A midweek break from peeling, chopping, cooking and washing up!

It’s also a good night to dine out at the Bay Horse in Worsthorne because Wednesday night is curry night.

For £5.95 you get the choice of a madras, balti, korma or tikka, with a nan bread, an onion bhaji and portion of rice PLUS a pint of beer, lager or cider or a glass of house wine. Now that's what I call a bargain.

And when we called Arsenal and Tottenham were on the big screen (sound down!) serving up a feast of soccer too with a highly tasty 4-4 draw!

The Bay Horse is in the heart of the village and has been for years a welcome staging post for many a hiker, mountain biker and even horse rider descending from Worsthorne Moor.

But the pub's menu isn't only about curry on a Wednesday.

There's all the usual inn fayre ranging from the cheapest main courses of lasagne and battered cod and chips at £6.95 to a hearty mixed grill at £13.95.

And a glance at the specials board gives you the choice of a more exotic option like venison and red wine pie or a whole spatchcock poussin.

And if you are able to grab a seat close to the log burning stove the atmosphere for a pleasant break in the midweek schedule is made complete.

Pass the mango chutney Mrs A!

The verdict

Great value if you want a break from cooking.
