“Perfect Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

My Husband and I booked for Evening Meal at Judges to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. We were greeted on arrival and shown to the lounge where nibbles and appetisers for served. We opted for the Winter Warmer menu. The presentation of the food was outstanding and the flavours were wonderful. All the staff were very pleasant and were happy to have a bit of polite conversation. We will definitely be back next year if not before!

We stayed at Judges Hotel 24/2/12 as part of a Birthday treat for me
From the moment the front door was opened for us we were treat like the owners.
We were escorted to our room whilst being told we had been upgraded!
We had explained to us that the sherry was complimentary along with Fresh fruit and fresh
milk for beverages.
The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath and flat screen tv , fantastic
That night after returning to the hotel we were again welcomed by Suzanne on Reception
and after returning to our room there was a knock at the door and 2 x glasses of complimentary
red wine was offered!
After a beautiful night sleep we woke to enjoy a fantastic freshly prepared breakfast whilst watching the wildlife on the lawns
Fantastic will be booking again

My husband and I booked Judages Winter Warmer offer and got a fabulous 3 course dinner along with appetisers and amuse bouche for £29.50 pp. All the food is like something from Master Chef, really well presented and packed with flavour. We then stayed over B&B for £99 with their Winter Warmer offer again. All in all a wonderful relaxing pre valentines break for us. Judges is our favourite place to eat and stay, its our treat to ourselves!

Room Tip: If its quiet you may get a free room upgrade for extra luxury.

This is super to read and thank you for taking the time to write this detailed review. Times are tough for everyone and the only way we'll get through this is by working together. So we decided to offer this special menu that runs along side our full-blown, award winning a la carte menu. All the food is prepared by the same team so it's just a bit simpler but still top-notch quality and at a cracking price. The same with the rooms, on quiet nights we'll promote deals via our website and RSS feed. To receive details of any offers we do simply subscribe to the RSS feed on our website. Once again many thanks for this review and we all look forward to welcoming you both back to Judges in the years to come. Kindest regards, Tim Howard GM 16/2/12

The Judges at Kirklevington is a converted stately home.

The service and quality of accommodation are to a very high standard. We stayed on boxing day in a family room and very much enjoyed it.

The grounds are fantastic, overlooking a small stream at the foot of the hill where the hotel rests, and well worth exploring.

The restaurant is exceptional - we were sat in the conservatory overlooking the grounds. The food was very well prepared with a choice to suit all tastes.

The room we stayed in was a family room. The room even came with 'Chum' the goldfish which was a really nice touch and helped us settle our 4 year old in easily.

Breakfast again in the conservatory was very good - quite something watching the deer in the field through a clearing in the wood while enjoying some excellent food.

The staff at the hotel are all friendly and helpful - especially those working in the restaurant / at breakfast.

I look forward to returning.

Room Tip: If you can get a room at the rear of the hotel looking towards the stream I would recommend you do.

We had my daughters birthday party at Judges for many reasons, the location was really good for us and our guests but mainly because we'd eaten and stayed at the hotel before so we knew the standards would be high.

The function suite (Courtyard Suite) is a building just to the right of the main hotel which is a good idea, you have your own entrance, own bar and own space without worrying about the hotel guests wandering in, etc.
It's a really well set out building and the whole, bar, food area, etc was perfect for the 100 guests we had coming.

The Hotels events staff helped me organise the party, made suggestions for decorations, themes and local companies such as the DJ, cake supplier, etc who had been there many times before and could be relied on.

I could spend a huge amount of time telling you how great the food was, that the kitchen and bar staff were excellent, and that everything came together on time and exactly as I'd requested to make this one amazing night.
One of the mamangers called Neil was superb on the night, coordinating everything, looking after the guests and constantly checking with me that everything was going well and there were no issues.

You will always find cheap places to hold a party and event, the upstairs room of the local pub, the local community centre, etc but cheap is cheap and cheap is the message you will be giving to your guests
Judges is about quality, comfort and luxury in the food, in the service, and when you have an event of any type this is what you want, the best costs more but if your going to do it then you should do it right.

If your in the Middlesbrough/Stockton/Teeside area and you need a party type venue then I can't recommend Judges highly enough to you.
