The Ackhorne

Thee Ackhorne is one of the most established and well known real ale pubs in York. Featuring on the York Ale Trail, it is a favourite with local ale enthusiasts and tourists alike.

Located within the city walls, the pub boasts six cask ale lines with Rooster’s Yankee And Caledonian Deuchars IPA as resident beers and four rotating lines which feature a variety of local and national beers changing on a daily basis.

If you can’t decide between the beers on offer, why not try one of our taster boards – you get three 1/3rd pints for the same price as a standard pint of the cheapest beer!

The selection of bottled beers available is equally as varied with a range of Belgian beers as well as more local brews, including Duval, Chimmay and BrewDog Punk IPA and real cider is always available

The Ackhorne is a quintessentially English pub with traditional oak beams, cosy rooms and a lovely open fire for the winter months. The pub has recently undergone refurbishment and the toilets and bar areas are kept to the highest standards. There is also a beautiful, secluded beer garden to the rear of the pub which is the perfect place to relax on a sunny evening. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome in the beer garden

Quality home-cooked pub meals are served Wednesdays through to Saturdays Or on Sundays you can treat yourself to a traditional roast dinner, with vegetarian options always available.

The pub has a large room to the back which serves very well as a function room for parties and/or meetings. The function room can be hired free of charge and buffets can be catered for.

Why not join us on Sunday evenings for our quiz night from 8.30pm. There are drinks tokens and cash prizes to be won and a free buffet for all players. Everyone is welcome and a great night is guaranteed.

Alternatively, pop down on a Monday night and join in the games evening from 8pm – this is an informal get together of people wanting to play traditional pub board games and we are always looking for new faces!
