Located in the centre of York. Harkers is a traditional pub with a vibrant feel which serves a selection of real ales and great tasting food.

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.

Harkers is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
