The Blacksmiths Arms is a friendly pub serving fine foods and ales in Naburn for over 350 years.

Purely for the culture and history, of course.

The Blacksmith’s Arms, is well worth the 15 minute walk into Naburn village. It’s a friendly, cosy pub that’s been the local hostelry for over 350 years. Landlord Anthony and team have a reputation for good food and fine ales. You can also order food to take out and eat in your caravan.

      Ye Olde Starre Inn on Stonegate is probably York’s oldest surviving inn, dating from 1644. The pub’s famous street sign directs visitors through an alleyway leading to its beer garden and entrance. Inside, the pub has a number of cosy, dark wood panelled lounges which are a popular meeting place.

          From the 42 bus-stop in Piccadilly, turn left into Coppergate and down to The Kings Arms on Kings Staith. It’s a pleasant pub to sit out and watch the river, though it is York’s most flooded hostelry. The pub has had many names since it opened in 1783, including The Ouse Bridge Inn. The Kings Arms on display are those of Richard III.

              The Roman Bath public house facing St Sampsons Square, is a busy pub with few external clues to its unique history. Formerly known as the The Mail Coach, it changed to its current name when a Roman Bath dating from around AD 71 was discovered in its basement during refurbishment. It’s worthwhile to pay the small charge to view what is thought to be a private bath, built for a Roman Commander.
