The Cittie of Yorke is a grade II listed public house on London's High Holborn, and is listed in CAMRA's national inventory of historic pub interiors.[1]

Although the current building is a rebuilding of the 1920s, the buildings on this site have been pubs since 1430.[1] Some features include the Henekey's long bar[2] located in the grand, hall-like back room,[3] a late-Georgian or Regency era triangular metal stove, and Victorian-style cubicles.[2][3]
