You will find The Old White Swan in Goodramgate York within a short stroll of York Minster, Parliament Square and Deangate. However, you won't find another like it.
Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food. Which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
A UNIQUE CITY CENTRE PUB WITH A RICH HISTORY
The Old White Swan is a collection of buildings with a rather colourful history that dates from the 16th Century. We are one of York's oldest pubs and are said to be haunted. Buildings at the rear of our courtyard date to medieval times. Additionally, in 1781, the world's tallest man, Mr O'Brian, was exhibited here at the pub. O'Brian stood 8 feet tall and the then landlord charged onlookers a shilling.
