Sunday Lunch - very enjoyable

There were six of us booked in for Sunday lunch. It's fair to say we challenged the chef and we all had something different, but all the meals were excellent. It wasn't busy at all, so might have been different, that said, I was very pleasantly surprised. Top job.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Courthouse Restaurant. The service from the staff was warm and welcoming and the quality of the food was excellent. Generous portions, high quality food and meat, a well chosen wine list and reasonable prices helped make our visit very good value for money. The building, a former courthouse, is imposing and the high... More

a business lunch in Douglas? You could do worse than going to the Courthouse, it does give the impression on entering that it is not busy, and the vast space does cause you to think there is no one there. Go in try it! We did, and had a very warm welcome from smiling staff, an interesting menu and big... More

Good food and service with a smile, just a real shame the place was deserted! I would go again and just hope more people frequent this little gem

I have eaten here on a few occasions now, both lunch and dinner and not had a bad experience yet. Good quality and reasonably priced food and drinks with something for everyone on the menu. I have seen a number of the meals on the menu across the times I have been and they all looked and seemed to go... More

Went here for a friend's birthday. The food was lovely, but not as much choice as I though it would be. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall had a great time just think there should be a little more choice on the menu.

First visit to this restaurant, but we were very impressed by the environment, decor, and the meal itself. Although there were only two of us we were shown to a secluded booth, by very helpful and attentive staff. Our meal was served timely, and was very tasty. We were very pleased with our choice of town restaurant, on a bitterly... More

We were offered a select booth, affording privacy in intimate setting. Lovely service, tasty fish dishes.

10 of us had lunch at the Courthouse today, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, most of us had 3 courses, everything was served politely and quickly so that we all had our meals at the same time, the staff were courteous and couldn't do enough for us. The food was fantastic, everyone said so, the desserts were delicious too. The... More

Went in and only one table other than us, the menu was limited. When it arrived the tub with the wraps in for the fajitas wouldn't open and the waitress was nowhere to be found. Other than that food was good. Left a bit disappointed but it was an ok experience.
