A very warm welcome to The Lighthorseman, a popular local pub situated in the Fulford area of York; an ancient city famed for its rich historical heritage and wealth of fantastic attractions for all to enjoy. We are located close to the Barbican which is approximately a 2 minutes’ walk away and ideally situated for the races too. Did you know that we are also the only pub in the world with our name (as far as we know) and we even have our own friendly ghost, George!

We’re also known for our brilliant food, a wide range of great Cask ales and offer quality guest accommodation. So whether you’re here for the weekend or simply coming in for a meal or pint, we look forward to seeing you at The Lighthorseman soon!

Dan and the team.


Here at The Lighthorseman we have 8 letting bedrooms to offer to our guests which include single bed, double bed, four poster bed and twin bed accommodation and all our guest rooms have en-suite bathroom facilities.
