The staff at judges were very helpful in planning our dream wedding. The venue looked great and the grounds were beautiful. Lovely hotel and very welcoming staff. Will definitely be visiting again. The food was excellent both the night before and for our wedding.

My wife and I visited Judges for lunch on a Tuesday in March as part of a Birthday celebration. The staff gave us a warm welcome and showed us the the grand drawing room where we looked through the menus. A very opulent setting. The selection was excellent and the prices reasonable for a hotel of this type. The staff...

This is a beautiful setting, we came when the sun was shining and we're seated in the window. Unfortunately it seemed our butter and jam had been sat out in the sun a while before we arrived too. Although carrying an 8 month old baby, after the waiter had attended to us 3 times we had to ask for a...

Thank you very much for your kind review and also for your very helpful feedback. I love information like this as it helps me to review our current procedures (such as how we store our home-made jam and butter prior to service in order so that they aren't too warm or too cold when they are actually used) as well...

My wife and I have just had a lovely evening meal at this hotel, once again it was a five star experience. The food is gorgeous the service lovely and friendly and the setting well worth a visit by itself, we treat ourselves a couple of times a year for that special occasion and it's fantastic value for money.

Stayed here overnight last summer - Been meaning to do a write-up of the hotel for ages, as we loved it, but better late than never. We had a spacious bedroom (no. 7) at the back on the first floor, overlooking the garden and its beautiful lawn and swaying trees beyond. It had tall windows and therefore a luxuriously high...

A lovely afternoon spent at Judges celebrating my husbands 50th birthday. Chris gave us a lovely welcome serving us delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes. Tea until we couldn't drink anymore, fresh hot and a full range of brews. Thank you Chris for making our afternoon a perfect way to spend a special birthday.
