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 for diners and drinkers.

Update - Flooding

Everyone at The Watergate Inn has been working hard and it looks as though we will be open in a few weeks. Expect wonderful improvements! Check out our Facebook page to keep up-to-date with progress.

We still do have a few lovely first floor rooms to rent. Please call if you are interested in booking this accommodation.

Riverside Garden

Our unique garden and outside seating area fronts the River Foss and is an oasis of calm and nature in the city centre. Fish, swans, ducks, geese and much more can be spotted whilst dining or drinking in this idyllic location.

There is a permanent BBQ serving area and a glass of wine with food from either our kitchen or the BBQ is a perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
