Stopped in for lunch and to catch the country music theme this Sunday. Lovely lunch made with real food not something pre-cooked and heated up. Staff were so friendly and made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back.

Good honest food, great atmosphere and friendly service. Good range of guest beers and international pints. The Guinness went down well on St Patricks day. We had the Korean Chicken Skewers, Hotpot and the Risotto and all were lovely. Good family pub.

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.
