Ye Olde Starre Inne is a fine, traditional pub in the heart of York. One of Britain’s most visited cities, York is renowned for magnificent York Minster, beautifully preserved medieval architecture and its significant role in key events throughout England’s history.

The Ye Olde Starre Inne has been around since 1644 and is the city’s oldest continuously licenced inn. Ye Olde Starre Inne is believed to have been commandeered as a hospital, to treat Cromwell’s wounded Roundheads. Our pub is easily recognizable by looking for the imposing sign which spans Stonegate, outside Ye Olde Starre Inn. The sign was introduced in 1733 by then landlord Thomas Bulmer as an early form of advertising. 

Ye Olde Starre Inne is located down a little lane just off Stonegate, our pub’s pretty, whitewashed building is trimmed with hanging baskets and punctuated by diamond-pane windows. The traditional interior has an abundance of period features and includes an enormous York Stone fireplace which adds to the cosy, welcoming atmosphere on cold winter evenings. Ye Olde Starre Inne’s spacious bar is complemented by charming snugs where guests can enjoy a quiet drink in almost complete privacy. During warmer months, our pub has three lovely courtyards.


Our function room is warm and inviting, known as 'The Wood Room', it’s an ideal venue for small parties, family celebrations and business meetings. Ye Olde Starre Inne’s unrivalled history also makes our function room a wonderful choice for a private meal after exploring the ancient streets of York. Fresh and inspiring during the day or pleasantly intimate in the evening, The Wood Room comfortably seats up to 30 guests. Whatever the occasion we look forward to welcoming your function to Ye Olde Starre Inne.
