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

We have just held my Daughters wedding at Judges and the whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. From the meticulous arrangements beforehand to the excellent service on the day, all delivered to the highest of standards and with a smile.

Went here with friends for a birthday afternoon tea and sat in the lounge area. The seats where comfy but almost to squishy to sit and eat of and it was difficult to reach across the table to get stuff. The tea and coffee where replenished on request however they didn't take away our old pots and spilt tea on... 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

There were six different finger sandwiches ranging from smoked salmon to cheese and cucumber They were freshly made and the bread was moist. Next came the fruit scones which were slightly warm. There was a choice of jam ,cream and butter . The teapot was kept filled... More

This hotel is truly wonderful. On every occasion that I have visited I have been extremely happy with the service. The first time I visited was as a guest for a friend's wedding. Although I was not a significant guest I was made to feel incredibly important, as was everyone there. I was so impressed that my wife and I... More

Had a great time on the 'Chef for the day experience' here recently. I was bought this experience as a birthday gift and it was certainly something different! The hotel itself is a beautiful building set in lovely grounds, however this experience is focussed on spending time in a busy working kitchen. I enjoy cooking at home but by no... More

My wife and I have just returned home after having afternoon tea at Judges, and must say that it could not have been better. The staff the surroundings the food were all first class. It was not surprisingly very busy for a Saturday afternoon but that all adds to the ambience. We shall certainly be back
