This Wetherspoon hotel was purpose-built in the mid 19th century to serve Grimsby's first railway. The hotel took its name from the earl of Yarborough, who was a director of the railway company and lived at nearby Brocklesby. The Yarborough was later owned by another railway company and, eventually, by the LNER. After the Second World War, the British Transport Commission owned it. In 1951, it was bought by a brewery from Hull. In 1960, it was nearly demolished. The hotel, which is a symbol of the town's transition from an 18th-century fishing village into a great Victorian port, is now a listed building. It closed down as a hotel post war but remained a pub and in 1997 it opened as a wWtherspoon pub and restaurant. Most recently in November 2016 Wetherspoon decided to open the hotel again and it has had a major refurbishment into a 36 bedroom hotel. Some of the old features remain including the amazing ballroom which now houses the ladies toilets for the restaurant and bar. Grimsby is known for its lively community, and the town accommodates many bars and night clubs. As The Yarborough Hotel is situated in the town centre, it is occasionally possible to hear music in the hotel from these venues (particularly on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights). If you prefer a quieter room, please book with the hotel directly, over the telephone, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
