A cosy, traditional York pub-hotel

Still lit by real gas lamps and candles, and right next to York Minster, this historic pub offers chic guestrooms (with exposed beams and antique furniture) in a 3-storey Georgian townhouse that is a joy to call home-from-home. The infamous Guido Fawkes was born on this very spot in 1570, and our welcoming hotel is therefore as rich in history as it is in charm.

Thank you for the brilliant review Very few places in York city centre have there own car park so it really is so convenient we can provide our guests with reduced priced permits Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal with us, i'm sure you can see why the Steak Pie and Sticky Toffee Pud are our two most popular dishes! Thank you for your lovely feedback regarding Dan I'll be sure to pass your comments on they're always very much appreciated Thanks again Laura

Lovely (and spooky) stay!

Thank you for your brilliant review What a strange experience you had with us! We've never heard of anything like this happening before and as you say there is nothing in the room to cause bright flashing lights so i think you may be right about those resident ghosts.. I'm very happy to hear you've enjoyed your stay with us, even the ghosts & hope to see you again in the future Thanks again Laura
