About us

The Three Legged Mare opened in 2001 on High Petergate, it is the major pub for pre and post-theatre drinks. It has nine real ales and large Belgian beer fridge. It offers a discreet beer garden with a scale version of the Three Legged Mare, a three person gallows!

In a bustling city filled to the brim with traditional real ale pubs, York Brewery's The Three Legged Mare is the most refreshing of finds!

This pub's wooden floors and light, airy décor means there's not a horse brass in sight, yet our pub maintains an historical feel and takes its name from a traditional three man hanging device, a replica of which can be seen in our garden.

You will always find a warm welcome here at 'The Wonkey Donkey' from our team of friendly staff. Everybody here knows about beer and we are more than happy to help you find a pint suitable to your palate. Our cask beer is of exceptional quality, with 9 real ales on offer at any one time. Choose from York Brewery's range of excellent bitters, including our pub's exclusive brew, Wonkey Donkey, or the award winning dark and malty Centurion's Ghost Ale. We also serve quality guest ales from independent breweries around the country and offer the discerning drinker a wide choice of Belgian beer and Czech lager; including un-pasteurised dark and light Bernard served in its distinctive glass.

Sunday evenings from 9pm we have live acoustic blues guitar with Dave Smith playing every week. It's a relaxed way to end your weekend, and a last chance for a few more beers before Monday morning creeps up on you!

We serve tasty light lunches 12-3pm and our brand new evening menu is served from 5 to 9pm every day. We are open for drinks until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and our 'no piped music, no under 18s and no fruit machines' policy means that you can enjoy your beer and that you can enjoy your beer and the company of your friends without any disturbances.
