The Grey Horse | Elvington

Opposite the green on the main street of Elvington and just a short distance from the Way of the Roses coast to coast cycle route, The Grey Horse is a picture-postcard village inn dating back to the 17th century. Window boxes adorn the whitewashed frontage, and this newly-refurbished establishment now offers superb lunch and dinner menus. You can find our pub six miles southeast of York on the B1228, and for visitors exploring this marvellous city, The Grey Horse provides a pleasant and convenient base in two bedrooms - a double and a family room - with superb comfort and full facilities.


Even closer, just over a mile away, is one of the most interesting museums in the whole region - the Yorkshire Air Museum, with its unique collection of over 40 aircraft and numerous displays, located on one of the very few original wartime bomber bases open to the public.




Our two bedrooms offer superb comfort and full facilities - and a scrumptious cooked breakfast is always on offer the very next morning.

The Grey Horse is the perfect base to explore the countryside, pay a trip to the Yorkshire Air Museum and nearby York Maze in the summer months, or visit historic York, with its cobbled streets and magnificent Minster.


Further afield, The Grey Horse is in easy distance of the Yorkshire Coast, as well as the shopping hubs of Harrogate and Leeds. Book a room with us today, and enjoy a well-earned break in a welcoming village pub.

News, Events and Offers

“Quaint Yorkshire pub”

Attending an event in the immediate vicinity, we booked the closest hostelry which was the Grey Horse Inn. We booked all rooms for the night and it was good! We arrived in time for a late lunch and the pub to ourselves. The Inn is a typical country inn with friendly and welcoming staff, good food, and great atmosphere.

“Tasty food ,cheerful service”

Called in for lunchtime snack for my wife and I. There is a good selection of real ales and my pint of farmers blonde was excellent . We both opted for sandwiches which were served with salad and chips. The sand wiches were tasty on a lovely breadstick and were good value. A special mention for the smiling friendly service.

“Great pub small and friendly”

Picked this pub on the reviews and so glad we did. We stayed 2 nights over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it ,the staff and Amanda and Andy were so welcoming. My husband was thrilled with the Tetleys beer best he had had. Breakfast first class in fact all food was good we ate both nights. Saturday was our wedding...

“Mr Eastwood”

Great pub with quality ales, didn't have a meal but looked and smelled great, lovely atmosphere, amazing nights sleep. Superb breakfast in a relaxed eating area. Only ten minutes from york - recommended.

“Really comfortable country pub”

The thought of staying in a pub had never really appealed to me before now. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is great. A traditional pub downstairs and more than comfortable quite room with en-suite upstairs. The home-cooked breakfast is more than enough to get you through the day. It's 7 miles outside the city centre in a picturesque village....
