Had a meal here on Fri 24th July 2015. My mum had looked this place up and based on the TA reviews said we would give it a try. It very much a pub, clean and basic. The back room is set up for meals and has a pleasant area outside probably to accommodate smokers. The menu has a good... More

Our room was a double en-suite, room only. Clean and tidy with everything we needed for a one night stopover in York. About a 10 minute walk into the town and river. Staff were helpful and let us use the car park after check out so we could spend extra time in York.

Stayed here after a night out in York. It really is excellent value and well placed for all the main attractions of York; the walk into town along the river is a very pleasant one. The room was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this place to anyone visiting York on a tight budget. Actually,... More

We stayed here for 2 days. (5th & 6th ) we stayed in the four poster room, very clean room, quiet, even with window open at night. Bed was very comfy. We didn't try breakfast, but we were informed on arrival that it was £6.50 per person. Close enough to walk to York. Staff friendly. Don't think pub opens until... More

A wonderful place to stay. Only a 5 minute walk to the centre of York. The breakfast was excellent with local sourced ingredients. The Italian restaurant is also excellent. The food was lovely and very competitive prices. We had a lovely short break in a very friendly and well run bed and breakfast.

We stayed four nights in May. Beautiful old building with characteristic rooms. Comfortable bed with good mattress and very clean bathroom. Easy access to York along the river (5 min walk). The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The restaurant served lovely Italian dishes by an excellent Italian chef. We had a very enjoyable stay and recommend the Lighthorseman highly.

Stayed at this venue after wondering if we'd done the right thing by reading previous reviews but no worries - we couldn't fault it. The room, bed and bathroom clean and comfy. The staff very helpful and friendly. The food absolutely fabulous, both breakfast and the 2 evening meals we took there. It had its own free car park and... More
