This was my fourth visit (my husband's first) for afternoon tea and yet again it was faultless. Now my husband knows why I continually praise everything about Judges: perfect food; beautiful interior; stunning setting and lovely staff. I'm sure it won't be long before I find another excuse to return!

We held our wedding on 21/06/14 at Judges in the Courtyard suite and could not have asked for anything more. The venue is absolutely superb - all of our guests commented on how amazing the hotel/Courtyard and grounds were. The staff are all very friendly and approachable yet professional and efficient. The food was fantastic; even though we had a... More

Have just come back from attending a wedding at this hotel. Every last detail was taken care of and all was fantastic. We could thoroughly recommend this hotel for a wedding. However the one thing that was offputting was that some of the rooms have fish in them , large fish in tiny little tanks. Sorry judges but this is... More

Stayed at judges after a wedding we attended there, wedding was stunning, as was the hotel, staff were friendly and helpful, rooms very roomy and clean, breakfast was also beautiful the next Morning Didn't have chance to do the walk around the ground or visit the gym but I'm sure they would have been wonderful.

Visited today for some afternoon tea with the family. Never visited before or had afternoon tea for that matter so had no idea what to expect. We sat in our own spacious lounge with large and comfy settees/chairs. We were given a selection of delicious sandwiches and scones that were delicious. The dessert tray consisting of mini chocolate gateaux and... More

We had our wedding at Judges on 1/3/14. In the build up to the wedding, the staff were very accommodating, especially the wedding coordinator Emma, who made things run smoothly. The actual venue is packed with character and the food, service and drinks were world class. For our wedding breakfast we had a very simple menu, but it went down... More

We stayed here for the third time on Friday 13th June, and the standards are simply amazing every time. The meals are the best we've ever had, with quality, presentation and taste all unsurpassed. We tried the afternoon tea for the first time, and this is an experience not to be missed. It's obviously very popular, so make sure to... More
