HRH Group opens the Fat Badger after £1m revamp

The HRH Group has completed the £1m renovation of the former Lamb & Lion pub in York. Now known as The Fat Badger York, the pub occupies two grade II listed buildings partially built into the city walls.

The first Fat Badger opened in Harrogate in 2010 where it offers a AA 2 Rosette kitchen.

The new Fat Badger is the first to offer bedrooms. Ranging from four posters to a loft suite, the rooms offer city wall views or garden views. The venue also includes a private dining snug seating up to 12 people as well as York’s secret gin garden’, a large beer garden which is inside the historic walls and has impressive views of York Minster

The Fat Badger York’s Grade II-listed buildings are believed to have previously been a house and a shop, dating back to 1840, and another building constructed in 1782. The venue is a blend of Yorkshire heritage, Roman history and British classic style. The decor includes materials of wood and leather to give an organic feel and is accented with Badger brand style artwork.

The venue is owned by the HRH Group, which has a portfolio of 4-star hotels, inns, AA restaurants and traditional British pubs.
