York Tavern, Pembroke

Sadly the historic York Tavern closed its doors back in 2002.  According to local legend secret passages lead from the York, under the castle and on to the priory at Monkton.

It is said Cromwell was housed here during the civil war.

Another important historic figure, John Wesley, is said to have preached in the old chapel which at one time stood in the tavern’s grounds.

Little changed at the York Tavern over the years and a report in 1953 could have been written in 2002 ‘there is a tavern in the town of Pembroke where you can find sawdust on the floor, a tiny-paned bow window and an atmosphere of peace and well-being’

There is little chance of this historic tavern reopening.
