Proudly independent, quirky and stylish. The Watergate Inn is one of York’s oldest hospitality venues. Originally a coaching Inn the stabling has been converted into quality en-suite letting rooms. We serve drinks and also cater to both guests and the wider public, particularly discerning visitors. Our well known bar dispenses fine ale wines and spirts along with soft drinks. Food is provided from our authentic charcoal grill and includes an excellent selection including gourmet hot-dogs and burgers and also a variety of chicken dishes.


We are now open daily for food and drink from 11am until 9pm.

Accommodation check-ins are from 3pm and our staff as always will do their best to help. There is a covid secure self check-in system in place.

Our reception is not staffed 24/7 which helps keep room rates lower. Staff do live on site.
