This famous old coaching inn formerly stood on the west side of Above Bar Street, close to where the entrance to West Quay Shopping Centre was built. It dated to the 18th century and was called the Coach and Horses only until the mid 19th century when it changed its name to the Royal York Hotel. In the mid to late 19th century it incorporated a popular music hall. The building was demolished in the 1890s and the Palace of Varieties Theatre was built on the site.
