A classic British pub with comfortable rooms in a great location. Whether business or pleasure has brought you to the heart of Yorkshire, The Waggon and Horses is the perfect base from which to enjoy your time in York. 


At our traditional, independently-run Inn we pride ourselves on friendly, professional service and on taking a personal approach. Our philosophy is built around a genuine spirit of hospitality and attention to the details that make a difference to your stay. 


We offer comfortable, en-suite accommodation a short walk from the historic city centre and just around the corner from the York Barbican entertainment venue. Gated parking is available for residents and we also have secure cycle storage away from the road. 


In our bar, lounge and library room you will find cask ales, open fires, bar billiards, newspapers, fine wines, books, games, real ciders, entertainment and conversation. We are listed in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide and have been named as the York branch's Pub of The Year 2017, putting us in the upper echelon of drinking establishments in what is widely recognised as one of the best beer drinking destinations in the UK.
