Excellent chicken Caesar and always friendly, in the best spot in Pocklington. Very good for young children, no problem with their requirements. Will be back again.

I have had a good few super lunches in Judsons but have been very much put off. My mum and I went in with a double buggy (and one quiet baby) and were told by the chap behind the bar there was no way of accommodating us due to fire regulations. It is worth saying the right hand side of... More

Had lunch here yesterday and we both had the steak burger which was delicious. Good chips, real chunks of meat in the Pattie. Lovely, helpful staff and gorgeous Creme Brulee. A friend personally recommended and he was spot-on. My only complaint was the wooden boards were a bit narrow to serve a meal on and the background music could have... More

We went into this local wine bar and enjoyed both people watching and the food. They produced a good range of food and I had the crab and noodle meal and my wife had the equivalent of a Prawn Cocktail for our light lunch. Staff were good,and the place was full of couples and families. It had a good atmosphere... More

What a disappointing visit today! The linguine was very unappetizing with lumps of salmon dumped into the sauce. My friend's meal was also very mediocre. Her salad accompanying the chicken gougons consisted of a lettuce leaf! I didn't complain but we came as our last meal was so good, What's happened? I'm not going again and I live locally.

We always loved to visit judsons when we came to Pocklington, used to be our favourite bar/restaurant. Since our last visit the sofas had been replaced with bar tables and stools. There were dirty tables and not a nice an atmosphere. We had a pint of the cherry beer and pint of larger which cost £10.20!!!! Didn't bother calling back... More

Judson's is a great little bistro on the market square in Pocklington. There is always a good selection of beers and wines and the menu is varied and imaginative. This is a good bar for craft beer and local Yorkshire ales. The menu is changed frequently and provides a good varied selection of robust bistro food. Usually a very lively... More

I visited with my husband and his networking group as a belated christmas meal. We ordered our food prior to our visit so the service was quick, but I was disappointed with my choice. As a veggie I had limited choice and didn't like the sound of the main course so opted for the Portobello mushroom burger. This was a... More

The name Judson's derives from the history of the town. After studying old maps of Pocklington, it was discovered that the courtyard behind the bar was originally called Judson's Yard after a cabinet-maker who lived there with his milliner wife in the 1840's.
