We have recently enjoyed another great one night stay including dinner and breakfast at Judges. Food and staff were impeccable as always (we're regular visitors). A very personal and courteous reception (especially from Angelo in the bar/lounge). We always enjoy relaxing at judges and usually combine dinner with an overnight stay in a very relaxing, peaceful environment with superb food... More

There is also a small but useful gym with a few machines but no weights, which was deserted when I used it so nice to be able to get some exercise when the weather is poor.... More

Passed menus to us which had a choice of 3 starters, mains and deserts. Out of our party of 10, 7 were unable to select... More

It is disappointing that this reviewer's opinion of eating in one of the consistently highest rated restaurants in the UK, particularly on such a special day, was not the success that either the booker of the lunch itself or we would have wished for. I have spoken with my Heads of Department who looked after this party.The atmosphere throughout lunch... More
