You will find Harkers in Saint Helens Square York within a short stroll of Coney Street, Lendal and Stonegate - 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.
The city's historic Roman Praetorian Gate stood across where Harkers is now. Probably rebuilt around 300AD, the gate was the main entrance to the City of York. Part of this structure is exposed in the basement of our pub. Our building was designed in 1840 as the head office for the Yorkshire Insurance Company, with the building finally completed in 1847. Our name 'Harkers' is taken from 'Harker's Hotel', which stood in nearby St. Helen's Square.
Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
Harkers is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
We don’t have a pub garden but at Harkers we do have a small urban outdoor space for you to enjoy a drink, some food and a great atmosphere.
