The Watergate Inn

The Watergate Inn is an old Coaching Inn that has evolved considerably over the centuries. The pub has a large outside space to the back that goes to the River Foss and it once had extensive stabling that could cater for 50 horses. Nowadays, the stables have been converted into en-suite guest accommodation and the manure heap has been replaced with a riverside garden.

Update - Flooding

We have had a complete restoration of the bar and ground floor rooms. The place is looking wonderful, and we are now fully open! We look forward to seeing you.
