The Bay Horse  built in 1894 and situated on Marygate, an oasis of quiet in Yorkshires capital city. With near neighbours of the Museum Gardens and the River Ouse you are truly in the centre of York. The pub is a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the station, we have ample pay and display parking to the rear and on street shorter term parking to the front.

It has the benefit of being private, its own washroom facilities and can be decorated to your taste. It can seat up to to 60 diners and is a very atmospheric room.
