This was a return visit to this hotel for afternoon tea. As usual, the food quality was outstanding, and the items included gave a variety of tastes which made this an enjoyable experience from start to finish. The staff are unfailingly pleasant and always considerate. Well done!

I spent 3 days here last week. They put me in room 14 on the 1st floor which had a superb view over the garden. Very quiet at night, all I could hear was the wind in the trees and some sheep nearby. The room was clean and comfortable, with a large bathroom. Not many vegetarian choices on the menu,... More

We visited with parents for an overnight stay. The rooms are good, ours was top floor but lovely, with a couple of complimentary chocolates and sherry. The rooms are very clean and with good furnishings. The small bar provided a large range of drinks options for a late afternoon drink on the terrace overlooking the extensive and very well kept...

We picked Judges to go to for our 40th wedding anniversary meal. It was an excellent choice. We went with friends, and ate from an exceptionally good menu, with food served quickly and efficiently, cooked exactly to order, and piping hot. The only slight down side was drinks ordered and not received - we could have asked again, but chose... More

Regular diners- this establishment always delivers. The staff are attentive and professional. The conservatory is always my choice- lovely and airy plus nice views. The Sunday luncheon is superb- well priced and plenty of choices. The Arbroath smokie to start is very good - soup also fine. The Rosemary bread is recommended. The lamb is delicately served and presented, beef... More

Historic building, lovingly restored and updated to make it convenient for modern requirements. Excellent professional supporting staff make this a good venue for a business meeting. The room I used was convenient for 10 around a table, 20 cabaret style, and probably 40 if necessary. Lots of daylight and fresh air, gardens for those important breaks and conversions that foment...
