A little pub history
Steeped in as much history as the nearby city of York, our name The Fox and Roman reflects the building's former use as The Fox Hotel and also to a Roman grave found on the site in 1833, we even have a few artefacts on display. The Fox Hotel used to stable racehorses and we still welcome friendly crowds of race goers on race days at the nearby York Racecourse.
Make a day of it
Opposite the gates to York Racecourse, the Fox & Roman is a sure bet with guests. Handy for York, there are many Roman remains in the area and sites of historic interest to intrigue visitors.
