Stayed overnight on a business trip to York. The Grey Horse Inn is a friendly, local inn just outside of York. Much more interesting than a cut and paste chain hotel, with good facilities and home-made cooked breakfast. Would happily stay again.

I was visiting the nearby Yrkshire Air Museum, so decided that an overnight stay was in order. I selected The Grey Horse because of its proximity. I was certainly not disappointed with my stay here. The room was more than adequate with sufficient furnishings, and a very comfortable bed. Typical of a pub, there is a fair amount of noise...

The attention received by the employees can only be labeled as outstanding. Relaxed rural environment, good dinner service and tasty full english breakfast. Highly recommeded for couples looking for a different experience not far from York city center.

Well cooked without being exceptional. Place is limited in terms of space and layout. Staff are friendly and costs are reasonable. Plenty of competition around with better grounds etc. for outside eating.

We went to The Grey Horse on Friday evening. We were a party of 7 and I have to say that everything that everyone had was absolutely gorgeous. I must say that usually when there is a lot of us then someone is unfortunate but all the meals starters, main courses, and desserts were excellent.

My partner and I had a nice Sunday lunch at the Grey Horse late in 2015 sitting in the nicely decorated upstairs restaraunt. Having eaten regularly at another lovely establishment this year, we were looking for somewhere different today and remembered the Grey Horse. Although the main pub downstairs looks nice (both as a bar and for a bar meal/Sunday...

We were disappointed to learn that you were unhappy with your recent Sunday lunch. Our staff always do their best to ensure that customers are made to feel welcome. I do not believe that in your case this was any different. During your meal you were asked by your waitress with a smile if she could get you anything else...

Room could use a little update, everyone was very friendly, nice location, old world charm, food was great, local hangout with trivia on Thursdays. We drove and ample parking in back, car park and bus into York was very convenient. Maybe 20 minutes total trip

We stayed here to break the journey from Edinburgh to London. Very friendly welcome, comfortable bedrooms with all amenities. We had a fabulous dinner downstairs, really good food. Breakfast was served up in our own private dining room and was fantastic too. Overall a great stay and close to pop into York.
