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

We stayed here recently on our way home from touring Scotland. Judges is set in large, well stocked and maintained grounds with plenty of tables to sit out and enjoy the peace and quiet after a long journey. The elegant hotel has lots of interesting individual furniture, paintings and our room too was individual with nice fittings and really comfortable... More

I had a wonderful meal here. The restaurant is quite formal and old school with properly set, well spaced tables, but the welcome, and service in general, is warm and free of pomp and pretension. Friendliness and sincerity seem to be a default setting in this part of the country. Food is classic British and very good indeed, my chicken... More
