The Judge's Lodging has just been redecorated and it is stunning! Located in the centre of York, this bar/restaurant has a real buzz. Enjoy a drink at the front of the building or on the decking with comfy seating at the rear. Walk up the grand stone stairs to the reception area and into the dining area. The decor is... More

We stayed here for one night and so pleased we did. Staff excellent both at reception and restaurant . Stayed in room 7 on top floor which might be an issue for anyone with mobility problems. Lovely quiet room with views over courtyard at the front of hotel. Enjoyed light supper before heading out to the theatre and then shared... More

We live in York and this is one of our favourite places to eat and drink. Today was warm and sunny and we tucked ourselves away in the upper level at the rear of the hotel where we were very well looked after by Carlos. Recently arrived from Barcelona his professional, attentive, friendly manner was a joy. All staff are... More

We received a warm welcome in the bar downstairs and then shown to our table in the room upstairs. A beautiful light and airy restaurant which led out onto a terrace, which would be wonderful on a warm sunny night. We all just had main courses and each individual dish was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly... More

Popped in today to have a look at the hotel as we had stopped at another hotel the previous night. The receptionist (Marta?) was very helpful and offered to show us some of the rooms as she wasn't too busy. The rooms we saw were of a very good size and fitted with quality fixtures and fittings that blend in... More

Thank you for writing us a kind review! We are lucky to have such a glorious building and indeed the room sizes one would associate with a 300 year old building. We were refurbished early last year to a very high standard so we are proud to showcase what we have to offer. Some rooms have fire places and views... More

We had a lovely, large and comfortable room out back off the terrace. (To us it was large, after 3 nights in London!) At 10pm the terrace is closed and the kitchen fans turn off, so it was quiet. The bed was amazing - gave us our best night's sleep of our 10 day trip. The bathroom was large and... More

This restaurant is classy and the outside area round the back is really nice to sit in on a summer evening. The meal was fairly average, I am a burger enthusiast and theirs was not too sparkling. Service was good apart from the 30 min wait for mains. Overall worth a try.

Thank you for your comments, we definitely want to serve a sparkling burger so will encourage discussion in house about how we can make it happen. Apologies for a delayed wait, we are working hard during busy periods to get our fresh food out as quickly as possible so we appreciate your patience. We hope to see you again and... More
