Lovely little old pub. Some good ales on the bar and free complimentary brews on check in. Location is perfect for a stroll down the river and into York. (5mins) Rooms are a little dated but they are clean, spacious safe an quiet considering your above a pub. Everyone really friendly.. York is littered with similar b&bs but this would... More

The GPS had us completely lost as it had the Lighthorsemen listed as another address but after asking a Policeman we finally got there. Staff are friendly and the room was a fantastic size. Only about a 10 minute walk from town centre so great location. I would recommend a notice advising how to operate shower especially for those who... More

Great place to stay. Spacious room. Comfy bed. Very warm welcome from the landlady. Breakfast was available at a small charge. However we chose to eat in town. 5 min walk along the river takes you into the heart of York. Highly recommended. 5*****

We booked into this impressive building on the Monday,after Le Grand Depart. York was still buzzing, yellow bikes every where. Got out of York train station, we walked towards Fulford Road. It took no more than ten minutes to get there. It's a fabulous old building, and credit to Dan and Racheal Murphy, who were perfect hosts. We booked a... More

Worried if we could find it, but no problem. Very nice room, lovely pub with a wonderful garden. Such a short walk in to the city. The owners and the staff were wonderful, great breakfast and nice beer. Good Yorkshire Welcome, thank you.

Me and my husband stayed here for two nights, so we could watch the Tour De France going through York. When we arrived they let us check in early which was very nice of the owners, had a meal in the Italian resturant which is in the pub and it was excellent food and great service. The pub is ideally... More

We stayed for three nights at the start of July for a great price. Given that it is above a pub we thought it might be noisy but we had no issues at all. The location was about a 15 minute stroll along the banks of the river Ouse to the edge of the shopping areas and the Minster was... More

I stayed here for a couple of days back in May. I was very impressed with my room and the location. I also thought that the breakfasts were excellent. I had one issue with my bed which was promptly fixed. I was impressed that action was taken so quickly. I thought that the staff were helpful and friendly. The location... More

Just spent 2 nights here, friendly welcoming staff. Comfy bed with usual room facilities. Nice reasonably priced bar with good atmosphere. Excellent breakfast, proper bacon, pork sausage that tasted of pork and amazing black pudding. If you want a relaxing stay, just a short riverside stroll from the centre of york, then this is the place to be.
