The Bay Horse

Website Design & Development for a Traditional Pub
The Website
This is an on going project with The Bay Horse. The initial task was to create a new website for the small country pub located in the north east of England. The websites look was to be kept within the style of the pub whilst modern and easy to navigate between sections, particularly the menus. The project now requires updates to the content depending upon notices, events and changes at the pub, this keeping the site up to date.


A traditional village pub meant the website needed to look and fit in with the feel of the pub itself. Going with a simple design style featuring a header with the pub's logo, followed by a navigation menu. Using a slideshow of imagery to show some of the pub to customers, giving them a sense of the tradition.

I introduced new features to the webpage, including a newsletter feature allowing users to enter a email address for the pub to collect and use for marketing events and offers. I introduced adverts on the home page, notifying users of opening times and offers.

Menu Page

Customers of the pub found the old site hard to navigate and this was something that had to be addressed with the re-design. Creating a simple and easy to understand navigation menu with a drop down for menus. A secondary navigation on the menus and drinks page allow for easy navigation through the different menus. This allowed customers to easily navigate the site.
