This restaurant is in a fantastic location. The food is absolutely delicious, with a good selection of wine. I love the quirkiness of the building with its individual rooms, so you can dine from comfy sofas with low tables if you prefer. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices.

Good venue for business lunch. Food very good. Setting is lovely and conducive to business. Would recommend to anyone coming to York from outside as not too far from the railway station. Also close to the city centre and easy to find. Car parking close by (Marygate) so convenient if you are driving in.

Been here before for a drink, decided to try lunch today wasn't disappointed chose the Judges salad with Chicken- very tasty. My friend had the chicken burger ( fillet of chicken) she enjoyed it also. Staff very polite & helpful. Nice atmosphere. Nice clean bathrooms. What's not to like - will frequent again.

When arriving they only pointed out out a table and didn't take us to it. Eventually because no one came I had to get up and get our own menus. No one came to take an order so we went inside to place an order. We ordered the plowmans to share which was excellent apart from the bread which was...

This was my first visit to The Judges Lodging but we chose this place because of its great courtyard outside. It was a gloriously sunny day and it felt like being on holiday One of my friends had a butcher's board and it was loaded with local Yorkshire beef & Yorkshire ham, breads & chutneys.

This hotel is really lovely. Amazing old building with period features, but with a contemporary twist. 2 bars, lots of outdoor and indoor places to sit/eat/drink, and very nice food. We were in the row of new rooms tucked away at the back. These are modern rooms with nice interiors, but they are small. Small but luxurious. I'd say they...
