About The Bay Horse - our historyThe Bay Horse in Marygate  was built in 1894 in a mock Tudor / Arts and Crafts style. In the late Victorian period this would have been a very striking addition to the local spacious red brick terrace and town houses in the vicinity.

Historically there was a pub on the other side of Marygate which was attached the the Abbey enclosure walls. Although the building is a Grade II listed structure in has undergone a series of renovations throughout the last 20 years within keeping of the original style. The pub was closed from 2003 to 2008. The City of York Council then granted permission in 2007 for it to to be turned into offices and flats, thankfully this plan never came to fruition.

The Bay Horse is now under private ownership and will receive a compete refurbishment commencing in March 2018 and will doubtlessly be providing the warmest of welcomes to both local residents and visitors to York for many years to come.

With 5 spacious well appointed En-Suite guest rooms both innovative and traditional home cooked foods are available and a fine selection of quality guest beers, lagers, wines and spirits. The Bay Horse has something for everyone. The Bay Horse is situated just outside the city walls and within easy walking distance from the city centre and the railway station.
