Judge’s Lodging’s restaurant
Set in a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse, the historic building offers both character and charm for anyone staying or visiting for something to eat.
To get there, it was just a 10-minute stroll from Middletons Hotel, and we got to take in the evening views of the River Ouse as well as the historic cobbled streets of York that we hadn’t yet explored.
We were invited to visit the AA Rosette restaurant on Saturday evening, and we sat in a beautiful room with vaulted ceilings and the ambience was one of luxury.
The menus had been specifically crafted by a team of expert chefs, so guests can indulge in locally sourced, authentic Yorkshire dishes.
There are also a variety of local tipples to try, refreshing ales and vibrant cocktails if the occasion requires.
To start, we chose the marinated chorizo and tempura king prawns which came in an Asian salad with a soy and honey dressing.
Both of us then opted for steaks and fries, one with bearnaise sauce and the other with peppercorn sauce, topped off with a side of seasonal vegetables.
To finish, the sticky toffee pudding and brownie completed a brilliant meal.
Again, the service was impeccable, the presentation of the food was beautiful and it came out of the kitchen fast, and piping hot.
