More Information

At the original Porta Principalis into Roman Eboracum stands an old Inn, grafted into the main stone gateway of the ancient city of York. Here is the Lamb & Lion. In all England there are few taverns blessed with such a position.Fire ravaged the Inn when the Earl of Manchester's men bombarded York in 1644 and over a hundred years later the Lamb was rebuilt by a wealthy butter merchant in 1756. Today, the Inn is one of the finest in our medieval city. With dark corridors, staircases and little snugs everywhere, the Lamb & Lion breathes the atmosphere of a time gone by.We offer free parking in the centre of York! Please reserve your car parking permit with us when making your reservation.A member of Classic British Hotels
