I ordered 2 coffees; the order was straightforward and uncomplicated but the person taking the order didn't inspire confidence. After 20 minutes no coffee appeared; I had a good view of the staff making coffees and the process was clearly inefficient and overly time consuming....More

Met here to plan the Under 10s rugby for next season 0 couple of quiet drinks with friends. Fairly quiet (Tuesday 6pm) but it is usually busy and has good food, beer and atmosphere.

We were introduced to Judsons on moving to Pocklington 4 years ago. Prime location, relaxed atmosphere, good food, great selection of ales and friendly staff. After virtually living in the bar, we now rarely visit as the atmosphere and service have plummeted over the past...More

We used to go here a lot, maybe 3 times a week. The sofas have been removed though (it's nothing like the photo now) and we don't like it anymore. It has totally changed the feel of the place, not to mention the comfort. The...More
