I would like to congratulate you and your team on your, and the hotels, contribution to the truly amazing day My Daughter and Her Husband enjoyed. My Wife and I, indeed all the guests were thoroughly impressed by what we experienced. Your first contact was professional and easy, (apart from when you asked for money!) which continued right up to... More

On behalf of all of us here at Judges thank you very much for your kind review. Please do spread the word about us as every man and his shed seems to be offering wedding venues these days! Who knows whether they will be in business then or even if their outside caterers will turn up on the day? Scary... More

Team at Judges was responsible for hosting and helping with planning the wedding day (ceremony+reception) for us. We found that the team was very helpful, giving us a lot of information we needed and helping us with the decisions to be made. It is a very well kept hotel/mansion, with a nice vibe to it and a lovely and massive... More

What can I say but each and every time we visit it gets better and better. Last night the food was amazing. The service is exceptional. Very friendly and attentive staff. The atmosphere is so relaxed and warming. It's the perfect place with perfect food and wine.

After having our wedding here on 1st August 2014, it was our wish to return for our 1st Anniversary meal. We were not disappointed, absolutely outstanding, just like our wedding day. The staff are so friendly and polite and their food is out of this world. Each dish/course was explained in detail and could not be faulted. The service was... More

If you like the finer things in life and enjoy country house hotels, look no further than Judges, near Yarm. The grounds are well kept and a delight to walk around (especially after breakfast), all the bedrooms are different, the food and service is excellent. This was our second stay and this time we took two other couples with us,... More

40th birthday celebrations so we decided to choose the champagne afternoon tea. Everything was really lovely. The only point is that there was too much butter on the sandwiches but other than that services was good as were the staff.

I had my 60th birthday/retirment party at the Judges Hotel, I have been in business over 30 years and we have had many functions, but the service, dedicated staff, food and overall hotel is the most excellent and exemplary venue we have hosted. Everyone who attended praised the Judges Country House Hotel for an excellent evening, well done Judges
