We have just celebrated my mother's 70th birthday having organised a surprise Afternoon Tea Party for 40 guests held in The Garden Room of the hotel. The whole event was perfect and my experience of the hotel staff from start to finish was faultless; from the friendly, helpful and professional service of Emma & Suzanne in Events Management who assisted...

Having previously had our wedding at judges, we returned for an evening to celebrate our anniversary. it certainly didn't disappoint. Received a very warm welcome, as we have done on every occasion we have visited. Room 6 was beautiful, stunning views over the gardens, a fabulous bath, and great attention to detail including chocolates, sherry and candles in the bathroom.... More

Our family of nine has just spent a four night Christmas stay at Judges for an eleventh consecutive year. Always greeted like old friends, our rooms were beautiful and supremely comfortable. There are lots of lovely little touches in the rooms, such as homemade biscuits, a decanter of sherry and chocolates every day. Christmas lunch was excellent, with canapes, amuse... More

There are very few hotels in UK with some many positive reviews as this one. We stayed as part of a wedding party, it is an ideal venue to 'tie the knot' As it was just before Christmas all the decor was in the spirit and lent itself to be very festive indeed. The bedrooms had lots of super persons.... More

I went to a Judges party night this December. I sadly have to say it was very poor. The atmosphere however was lovely and the place was beautifully decorated. The soup was absolutely disgusting and I normally love carrot and coriander. Looking around at other groups I was certainly not the only one to think it tasted awful. The main... More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that your evening with us last Thursday was not as enjoyable as we would have wished. When we came to serve the turkey main courses at 8.58pm the chef discovered that they were not quite ready. The 16 minute delay in starting to send the main courses should not have happened... More

I visited Judges to stay for a night and have dinner with my son who lives nearby. I received a lovely warm welcome at reception and was conducted to my very comfortable room. The food and service at dinner was excellent and was the same at breakfast. Not cheap but well worth the expenditure.

It's important to give a balanced view when carrying out these reviews and to be honest with the restaurant before leaving. I had heard good things from my wife who visited the restaurant for lunch with friends the week before and had a great experience. Therefore I elected to try it with my 88 year old Grandmother, wife and daughter... More

Staying at Judges is like staying with family friends, but in a magnificent country house. It is quiet and comfortable, and the staff are wonderfully friendly and attentive, but never intrusive. Like many others I use it as a base from which I work, but I often think it would be the nicest place for a holiday. The grounds are... More
