Brilliant what a lovely place. Food was lovely, staff good a little slow but I think they were been trained. Didn't stay over so I can't comment on the rooms and service. This hotel is in lovely grounds, you would need a car or taxi.

Thank you for your kind review. Depending on how the day is progressing I know that Rachael sometimes adjusts the agreed timings of the day, with the Bride and Groom's approval, in order to accomodate any changes that may have occured. That way the day as a whole still remains nicely balanced. But thank you for the comment, feedback like... More

We had the most amazing wedding day and night at Judges on 9 July 2016 and from me (the bride) arriving with a number of the guests on the Friday night until the day we all left on the Sunday morning, we all had the most fantastic time and we simply could not have asked for better service from any...

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 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.
