Good food, but a bit noisy

We had to asked to be moved from the table reserved right at the front because of the music from the front bar, which was done with a smile. The food was very good and so was the service up to a point. It was a busy Friday evening, and once the tables were all full, it was difficult to... read more

I have been put off going back to the Courthouse after a couple of not so great meals in the past, however I visited on a Saturday night and the food was lovely, a real surprise as it doesn't seem that popular these days. We eat out quite a lot and I have to say the quality was very good.... More

Had a nice enough steak here. Tasty and well cooked. The waitresses are lovely, perhaps the friendliest on the island. The place has a lot going for it and I'd love to like it, but I just can't bring myself to do so. The atmosphere is still bleak. Dark and dank. The projector for sporting events isn't aligned properly. For... More

This place seems a little confused about it's identity, Oldey Worldey British (sorry, Manx!) court house cum American diner. But to be fair it's a pretty good place to visit if you're after a decent drink, lunch or simple dinner. It ain't fine dining but the quality is pretty damned good and I couldn't really fault the very professional service.... More

`Went in here for a late lunch on my last day visiting family on the island. It was quiet but it was a Tuesday around 2pm so most people back at work I'd imagine. As it was quiet, we expected the food to arrive pretty quickly however it was a tad slow. We hoped that meant it was all freshly... More

Disappointing! Very very expensive drinks and really really salty food made this a big mistake. I will try again as i note numerous awards. Must have been a bad day!

Food was excellent and reasonable priced. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the premises was clean, tidy and probably the most trendy pub on the island. Would happily recommend and will return there when we visit the island again next year.

Two friends and I called in on a Saturday night having had to forego several other restaurants due to them being fully booked. Despite the Courthouse also being very busy, the gentleman in charge went out of his way to find us a table. The food was absolutely gorgeous. As someone with a wheat intolerance, I was delighted to find... More
