Stopped here before heading home after a midweek break not expecting much other than food court fare. The Bar and Grill was the most attractive premises in the food court so we headed in. Lovely waitress welcomed us in as soon as we stepped in. We had the lunch special Leek soup and Lamb Burger with salad and shoestring chips.... More

Well worth a visit. Good food made to order. I love Blu Steak and they get it just right. Warm on the inside but just done on the outside. The food overall is to a very high standard and the staff are very professional. Worth a visit for lunch.

Worst food i have had out in a long time. Had the fish ( bad choice it was like eating soggy rubber ) This was pre cooked & reheated in a microwave. Definitely won't be back. Manager also very rude when paying good money for slop. Thank goodness we didn't complain because it looked like he wouldn't of cared in... More

Our family of five had lunch in The Courtyard yesterday. We could not fault the place - very good food, service, cleanliness, decor and value for money. All in all a very pleasant experience - we will be back.

The best thing they had were the wedges but they stopped making it spicy. Limited menu which rarely changes. Service very slow. Lasagna was served cold once. Was left waiting for 15 min once and no one came to take our orders. We then left. Almost certainly will never go back.

Had lunch in the Courtyard as a family of 5 recently and it was delicious. I mentioned to our waitress as we arrived that our youngest was tired, and that if she kicked off, I would bring her off. She immediately asked what drink she'd like to see if it'd help settle her, and she brought out a glass of... More

My husband eats here up to 2 a week and I join him now and again. The food is fantastic. I highly recommend the wedges, the dressing is lovely. The only thing I can say is the menu isn't very extensive. They do have a 'Daily Specials' board. I have read the reviews below regarding the staff and yes, once... More
