Are you dog friendly?

Your four-legged friends are very welcome to visit the Golden Fleece; however we do have a few house rules.
Firstly, dogs are welcome in all areas excluding the hotel’s main restaurant. You are welcome to dine with your well behaved dog in our bar, lounge areas or outside in our courtyard.

In regards to staying with us, we do have a set few rooms in which we allow dogs to stay in, please phone us direct to book a dog friendly room on 01845 523108.

There is a charge of £15 for up to two dogs, per night.


As the building is 500 years old we are unable to fit a lift into the hotel. Our restaurant and bar facilities are all on the ground floor.
We have two ground floor bedrooms at the hotel which may be requested on booking.

Check in time is from 3pm on the day of your arrival. We cannot guarantee an early check in, however, if your room is ready before 3pm you are welcome to check in early at no charge.

Check out is by 11am on the day of departure.


Are you close to Thirsk Racecourse?

Thirsk Race Course is located ½ mile away, making it either a 10-minute walk or a short taxi ride from the hotel.


Market Days

Mondays and Saturdays are market days in Thirsk. Please be aware that due to the hotel’s prominent location on the market square, some rooms may experience noise from the market setting up in the morning.
