The approach through mature gardens allows for beguiling peeps through the trees of the charming greystone Victorian country house, which once provided top-notch accommodation for circuit judges doing their rounds. The gardens outside the conservatory dining room are a hive of activity when evening draws on, as rabbits and even the odd fox can be spotted mooching about in search of something for dinner. Ensconced behind glass walls, you'll be rather more securely provided for, courtesy of the kitchen team. The style is recognisably contemporary British, with some modern classic combinations mixing it with less familiar ideas on the fixed-price menus

                      This was our first visit to Judges and will be our last.The service was exceedingly slow, even allowing for staff shortages, and there was no apology. The food was well presented but disappointing.

From the warm welcome to the genuinely friendly atmosphere and the fantastic surroundings - perfect for a special occasion or a meal with friends. Perfect.

                      Family meal pre Christmas for8 people, booking made quite late but we were seated in a private dining room which was ideal, the staff were very attentive and the food was served promptly and of excellent quality. We have used the restaurant before and will again, highly recommended.

                      We were a party of eight, for a special anniversary. The staff were just delightful and made us feel special. It was nice to sit in the lounge while we waited, for drinks and au derves, we had two children with us the staff were brilliant with them. Certainly going back.

                      We have been twice before & thoroughly enjoyed it. This last time wasn't so good. We waited 20 minutes before we were given a menu. My starter was 'wood pigeon' & I could have managed better with a sharper knife. Dessert took so long we thought they had forgotten about us. To cap it all our bill was wrong-only over £20 more than it should have been. It took some time (more than 10 mins!) for reception to sort it out. Admittedly she did apologise & remove the cost of the dessert but it was all a bit disappointing.

                      The food wasn’t as good as our last visit a year ago. Not sure if the chef has changed but the quality has dropped significantly and if anyone was planning a special dinner to spend money on quality of food I would not recommend it. Although the atmosphere and service was great, any foodies on a tight budget it’s not a place I would suggest.

                      Terrible bland food!!! awful service from one member of staff shouting across the room at a young member of staff for making a mistake leaning over our food to take things away then when carrying over the coffee cups had his fingers inside the cups(we didn’t have any coffee after that!) an important family meal totally ruined then to top it all off we were charge £100 for two adults and a 3yr old total rip off wasn’t worth half that do not book!

                      Excellent location for a Treat for Sunday Lunch. The surroundings and the Dining Room area were excellent providing a touch of elegance to the dining experience. Attentive staff from the first meeting with Angelo and through to the Waitress & Waiter staff that we dealt with during our lunch. They all wanted to ensure that an enjoyable experience was achieved and they certainly did that for myself and my wife. Relaxing Lounge area to conclude the Dining experience and beautiful Grounds to look out onto whilst we enjoyed our lunch in the Conservatory area of the Dining Room. Excellent Value for Money - We both felt that we had enjoyed a Sunday Treat ! Well Done to all the Staff at Judges !

                      This was our first visit. The food was great, unfortunately the service was the worst we have had for a long time. Having to wait such a long time between courses spoilt the whole experience. We were brought the menu for sweets and after twenty minuets I went to look for someone to take our order. I did tell reception of our wait, this was greeted by the reply 'The Manager will be informed and he will contact you'. This has not occurred, he was probably trained with the rest of the staff.

                      We have been here for functions but never for a sit down meal. Being mid week we weren't expecting it to be busy, there were a few diners and hotel guests eating in the restaurant. The food and service were really good. Would recommend if looking for somewhere different to eat.

                      The ambiance of judges suited the celebration of my wives special birthday in particular the relaxed atmosphere of the dining room in the conservatory. I would recommend Judges for that extra special touch of class and enjoyment.

                      Excellent food and table service. Waiting staff had the right balance of formality and friendliness. A shame our waiter was being let go. He was superb. Unfortunately the same can't be said for a rather officious manager who humiliated a new member of staff in front of us as we were leaving. Hence the downgrade in the overall score.

                      Just the two of us having a night out together. Excellent wine and food. The menu was just expansive enoug and not endless pages of dishes. The service was most polite whilst very friendly and informative for each course and dish. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the produce as well as the update trendy presentation. Looking forward to our next reason to visit again

                      Away for the weekend and always try to find somewhere special to eat on a Saturday evening,judges did not disappoint. The greeting at the main door told me we would enjoy our visit and all the extra little touches put the icing on the cake. We would definitely return if the opportunity arises

                      Disappointing it the fact that there were hairs in my desert and part of a Bristle from the pastry brush was in my partners desert, lack of care and attention. In excess of 105£. Disappointing birthday treat.

                      We are, by now, very regular visitors to Judges and continue to be delighted with not only the surroundings but the quality of the meals and accommodation. Very nice staff, comfortable in the extreme and a fantastic place for a couple, a group, a family or even a single person wishing to spoil themselves. Keep it up.

                      We enjoyed a super evening at Judges. The atmosphere and the surroundings were perfect for the special occasion of an '0' birthday for my dad. Service was brilliant and to a high standard - expected at Judges! The food was delicious and presented so artistically. It felt like we were tasting for Master Chef! We loved the relaxing music in the background and the doors were open so the birds were singing too! Overall, a very special evening enjoyed by us all. Thank you.

                      We sat in a lovely bright conservatory overlooking a delightful garden after having appetisers with our drinks in the bar. I had a delicious artichoke risotto, my partner had sea trout. For my main I had the most delicious cheese souffle I have ever had. My partner had lamb & he said it was also wonderful & very tender. We asked to share a dessert so they divided a portion of the sticky toffee pudding into two. Each half portion looked big enough to be equivalent to a single portion elsewhere ! We just stopped short of licking our plates. Our waiter was helpful & friendly & was more than happy to tell us about the history of the building. It wasn't cheap but, considering the standard of the food, we thought it was well worth it. We highly recommend it.

                      Slightly unnerving as we arrived and found we were not shown on the dining list, having used the Open Table application to book online. However, the staff were happy to fit us in. Thereafter, everything was lovely.
