The Judges Lodgings is a small, but perfectly formed, townhouse hotel with an enviable position right in the heart of the City of York.
This Grade I listed Georgian building has seen many changes through the years and as you’ll have guessed by the name, was the official residence for the Assize Court judges for over 170 years – in fact until 1976, when it evolved into a commercial hotel.
This landmark building was acquired by Daniel Thwaites, a Lancashire based family brewer, in December 2012, and much work has taken place to renovate the exterior of the building and ensure it’s good to stand for the next 100 years or more.
The Judges Lodgings is thought of as one of the most characterful York restaurants thanks to the many different areas you can enjoy your food and drink. There’s the cosy cellar bar with original vaulted ceilings, the feature glass box and the stunning sun terrace, where you can watch York life go by. They’ve also got a Cask Ale bar, a little gem, hidden away on the first floor and the Medicinal Cabinet with the finest selection of gin and whisky, ideal for a nightcap!
All the 21 cosy and comfortable rooms are unique and full of charm, character and understated elegance. Along with all the facilities you would expect all the rates include a full Yorkshire breakfast, well worth getting up for. Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 9:30am Monday – Friday and 8:00am to 10:00am Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
The kitchen is open every day, serving a selection of light, and more substantial, dishes that have been inspired by the great local produce around them. However you choose to spend your time in York, you'll be able to enjoy a relaxing night's sleep in their cosy and comfrotable guest rooms.

All the rooms are very individual and offer the same home comforts throughout – a couple of them have wonderful beams and some extra special views will be just the inspiration you need to jump out of bed in a morning. Just let them know if you’d like to book one of these when you make your reservation – they try to accommodate all special requests, but can’t guarantee this.
