We all had a great time and enjoyed good food and good company we will not hesitate to recommend your fine establishment to all our friends and relatives,and hopefully we will return to stay once again soon. Once again THANK YOU

my husband and i wanted a short break not too far away from home for us only 1 hours drive the light horseman was ideal .parking for guests and only a 10 minute walk into the city center the room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. we were made to feel very welcome and the service was very good not only behind the bar in the evening but in the dining room for breakast . breakfast was cooked by the landlady who was happy to provide a full english breakfast to an excellant standard certainly enough to set you on your way for a days sightseeing in a lovely historic city .

I was having trouble booking a room and ended up at The Lighthorseman through the York tourist board. I was a little concerned about staying in a pub but I needn’t have been. It is a lovely Grade 2 listed building and is the perfect distance from the city centre - a 10 min stroll down the riverside.

The rooms were a nice size and very clean. We were given a key to come and go as we pleased. There is a free car park where we could leave the car even after we checked out while we walked back into the centre.

We did not return to our room until after 12 midnight and the pub was quiet so I cannot say how noisy it would be if you wanted to go to bed earlier.

The staff were very pleasant and more than happy to make you an ample fry up in the morning, cereal and vegetarian breakfasts are also available (you must request the vegetarian breakfast when you check in).

I do not have a bad word to say about this place and will definitely be returning.

Brilliant Stay, the rooms were very clean & we were made to feel very welcome, good feeling at the bar & the locals were friendly, breakfasts brill, will come again
