The Bay Horse, on Town Street in Farsley, reopened its doors to the local community after an investment of nearly£150,000, under the reigns of new local Operators, Dave and Kay Henfrey.


The award-winning Craft Union Pub Company has refurbished and rejuvenated The Bay Horse as part of its ongoing commitment to putting quality pubs back in the heart of communities. The layout of the pub has been updated, and the design and furnishings have been improved with the introduction of carpets and a brand-new colour scheme to give it a warmer and more inviting feeling throughout. Alongside the décor, The Bay Horse also sees the introduction of upgraded audio-visual equipment for improved sports and entertainment facilities.


The refurbishment has seen a complete refresh of the Bay Horse’s interior and exterior, in line with its original features that date back to 1810. The design intended to create the feeling of a home away from home and it has been decorated to the highest standard to ensure a welcoming atmosphere that its customers will enjoy.


Dave and Kay joined the Craft Union family in October 2020, with Dave joining from nearby St. Gemma’s Hospice and Kay from the Old Hatte pub in Huddersfield. The couple is dedicated to ensuring that the pub thrives within its community – while enhancing its offer with an affordable and varied drinks range, all the best sporting action, pub quizzes, and live music – once restrictions allow.


The pub has reopened with clear social distancing measures and enhanced cleaning regimes in place and Dave and Key are focused on the safety of both her staff and customers.


Dave said: “Kay and I are delighted to be here in The Bay Horse. It is a brilliant pub at the heart of Leeds, and we’re dedicated to doing all we can to give back to the local community. My focus has always been helping the community, so to work with a company like Craft Union with its values so deeply ingrained in serving the communities it operates in, is just fantastic. I’m also incredibly happy that we can continue to support St Gemma’s Hospice too, and we’ll be continuing to raise money to help sustain the amazing work that it does.


“Our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our team and customers, whilst ensuring everyone is able to enjoy and make the most out of their long-awaited visit to our pub.”


The pub has ensured it complies with the new COVID-19 Secure Workplace Guidance for Pubs and Restaurants, introducing measures to protect staff and customers and ensuring the smooth running of operations.


Understanding the importance of clarity for customers, The Bay Horse has installed external signage clearly setting out the safety measures in place. Customers will be greeted with a warm welcome from both managers and teams, and robust COVID-secure measures, including clear social distancing measures, enhanced cleaning regimes and adhering to NHS Test and Trace guidelines; full table service with contactless payments available, customers can also order drinks via an app, will be in operation.
