The White Horse | York

The White Horse pub, based in the heart of York on Bootham, is a testament to the culture of York. This pub has been trading since 1770. The White Horse has recently been renovated after new landlord, Wesley Glenton, took over. This pub has risen to new heights with a brand new, honest and receptive attitude and far more pleasant spirit to the pub. Please mention the "Way of the Roses website" to receive 5% off your bill.


Our Accommodation


We're really proud of the renovations we've made to the pub but we're also really proud of the improvements we've made to our rooms. Brand new redecoration in our rooms is underway.

Featuring free Wi-Fi and a bar, The White Horse offers rooms in York, 350 yards from York Minster. The property is close to several noted attractions, around 450 yards from Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms and around 750 yards from York City Walls. Priory Church of the Holy Trinity is 900 yards from the inn and Grand Opera House is 900 yards away.

“Brilliant Weekend Stay”


Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a weekend stay at The White Horse and we both thoroughly enjoyed it! The owners are extremely friendly and will go above and beyond to make you feel at home! Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Same goes for the bathroom. Situated right next door to York Minister it makes a perfect place to stay when visiting York. Will most definitely be back.


“Perfect stay friendly and clean”


I recently stayed at the white horse pub in York and was welcomed as soon as I walked through the door the landlord couldn't be more helpful carrying my bag upstairs while I had a pint of real ale in the bar. The room was spotless lovely size and will definitely be staying again. All the staff I met chatted with me and couldn't be more helpful. The live singer on the Friday I stayed was amazing and really gave the pub a buzz which could be seen by the smiles on people's faces as he sang. Definitely a big change since I last visited well over a year ago. Will see you all again I'm sure.


“Brilliant time”


Fantastic staff fantastic hotel highly recommend it xx very clean and very sociable great time on our last night would love to have stayed longer landlord us a great character too good company had by us all.


“Amazing stay at the White Horse”


Just returned from a two night stay at the white horse in the beautiful city of York. The White Horse is a public house offering very reasonably priced accommodation above the pub. Rooms are spotlessly clean and have all the amenities that you could possibly need, tea and coffee replenished every day, lovely fresh towels and clean sheets, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, adequate storage space and plenty of coat hangers.


The location is absolutely spot on with just a few minutes walk to the minster the shambles and the amazing nightlife of York. Check in was super easy and all the staff at The White Horse are so friendly and efficient, I cant remember the bar staffs names but all those girls are a credit to the pub. Jane and Wesley are both amazing and I wish you both lots of luck for the future.


Now I will just mention that this pub is practically in the centre of York on a main road so obviously there is going to be noise well into the early hours this added to the charm, we found ourselves people watching into the small hours but if you close the window then the noise is reduced radically, this was certainly not a problem but an asset.


We spent quite a bit of time in the pub and I can honestly say that it is one of the warmest most friendliest pubs that I've ever visited and trust me I've visited a few, missing it already. In short I would wholeheartedly recommend the White Horse and we would return in a heartbeat, in fact we are already making plans to do so. Once again thank you for making our stay such a memorable one.
