The room was gorgeous, clean, cozy and comfortable. It had a really traditional feel, but all the amenities were well-kept. For the cost, I wasn't expecting it to be so good. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly, helpful and on for a fun chat. They helped me navigate the area and made my stay really enjoyable. Wish... More

Visited York on a very busy Saturday lunch time and found that the majority of city centre pubs were full. However, a very short and enjoyable walk through the museum garden took us to Marygate, where this historic inn sits. The large modern interior offers a variety of seating and a large bar with a decent selection of real ales.... More

Stayed in an apartment across road so this being the nearest eatery in we went. Rump steak done perfectly, great beer and super friendly staff. Nicely done décor, very quiet but it was Halloween so guess the people of York were trick and treating elsewhere. Its a pub but got something to offer and with outside seating near the river,...

If you're looking for a Bay Horse hotel...make sure this is the one that you book. We booked this hotel last minute after being let down by another bay horse in York. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was excellent and the location was perfect for exploring the city centre. The room was spacious and well equipped... More

Looked up the bay horse on trip advisor before booking just to see what other guests thoughts were. All I can really say is I agree with everything that was written about the place, from clean and tidy rooms to the perfect breakfast served by really friendly staff. We only had a couple of drinks in the bar but we... More

Good choice of real ales, cider more limited but at least they had Aspalls on draught instead of usual boring Strongbow or similar. Free wifi. We didn't eat but the menu looked good, if a little pricey. Handy location just outside the city walls with plenty of parking space.

This is more of a locals pub. Drinks are cheap and food is "pub grub" but to a better standard than I expected. Portions are enormous. There are several vegetarian options. I had one of the specials and really enjoyed it. Prices are comparable for York which is expensive everywhere.

Another good snack at the Bay Horse. It was a warm summer Saturday and opted to eat at the handful of tables that they have outside. Service was quick and the food good. All we had was a sandwich with chips.
