The local pub in Ravensworth is the Bay Horse Inn. The pub has recently been refurbished by the new owners, Sam and Haley and re-opened late last year. At present the Bay Horse is open on Wednesday and Thursday for drinks and a reduced food menu and is offering a comprehensive food menu on Friday and Saturdays evenings and Sunday lunchtimes. Be sure to book well in advance if you wish to reserve a table. We wish them every success!

Following months of negotiations, a proposed devolution deal between central government and local authorities for York and North Yorkshire has been provisionally agreed.

The proposed devolution deal would deliver more local powers and decision making and more funding.  As it stands today, the proposed deal is worth £750 m to York & North Yorkshire and would see a regionally elected mayor lead a new mayoral combined authority with investment upwards of £95 million a year and more devolved funding for transport, education and business support.
