Ackhorne Inn (York)




“Within the beautiful town of York, tucked away in the quiet alleyway away from the madding crowds, you’ll find a welcome in the Ackhorne”…..

Ackhorne-York interior

The Ackhorne is one of the most established and well known real ale pubs in York. Featuring on the York Ale Trail, it is a favourite with local ale enthusiasts and tourists alike. Located within the city walls, the pub boasts six cask ale lines with Rooster’s, Yankee and Caledonian Deuchars IPAas resident beers and four rotating lines which feature a variety of local and national beers changing on a daily basis. If you can’t decide between the beers on offer, why not try one of our taster boards – you get three 1/3rd pints for the same price as a standard pint of the cheapest beer! The selection of bottled beers available is equally as varied with a range of Belgian beers as well as more local brews, including Duval, Chimmay and BrewDog Punk IPA and real cider is always available

The Ackhorne is a quintessentially English pub with traditional oak beams, cosy rooms and a lovely open fire for the winter months. The pub has recently undergone refurbishment and the toilets and bar areas are kept to the highest standards. There is also a beautiful, secluded beer garden to the rear of the pub which is the perfect place to relax on a sunny evening. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome in the beer garden.

Quality home-cooked pub meals are served on Wednesdays through to Saturdays or on Sundays you can treat yourself to a traditional roast dinner, with vegetarian options always available. The pub has a large room to the back which serves very well as a function room  for parties and/or meetings. The function room can be hired free of charge and buffets can be catered for.
