from the moment you arrive its like being at home. The staff are wonderful, the food is great, the bar plentiful. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Don't do this if you are on a tight budget but you get what you pay for. Yarm is a lovely town for shopping whilst you are there.

I recently organised a party at Judges for my husband's birthday. From my initial approach to the day of the party, the staff could not have been more helpful. Specific requests were met with no problems and they made what could have been a stressful task (it was a surprise party!) as straightforward as possible. The night itself was a...

Stayed for one night for a friends birthday party, lovely place, expensive bar...Luke warm beer which was disappointing, apart from that 1st Class. Great room, great breakfast, great grounds, great staff....Why or why do you pay £180 per night and have to pay for a chocolate bar and a bag of crisps ?? Never mind

Thank you very much for your kind review which I know the team will enjoy reading. Thank you also for your helpful comments.

I loved this place when I lived on Teesside in the 90's and was delighted to find it remains super now. We could only stay for Sunday lunch this time but it was just as relaxed and pleasant an experience as ever. Hoping to find an excuse to stay longer soon!

My husband and I wanted to get away for an overnight break without having to drive a long way. Judges seemed to fit our requirements. Even better, there was a Sunday evening deal with dinner and drinks included plus B&B. As I am disabled I reluctantly settled for a "standard" room as the deluxe rooms were upstairs. When we were...
