Do not know what all the fuss is about at the Courthouse with regards to the food. I thought is was very average and quite exspensive to be honest £ 11.00 for a burger £ 13.00 for fish and chips, Fisk looked and tasted like it was from a supermarket, burger was Luke warm and tasteless we will not be...

we had, again, an amazing meal at the courthouse. 7 of us out for a girls catch up and the food was delicious, excellent service and a massive bottle of prosecco. Cant wait to go back. The courthouse have a great team in a stunning setting, its the perfect venue for a great night out, whatever your taste.

Make sure you take your drink to the toilet if you need to go as it will be removed, and if this does happen do not dare complain about it as you will be physically removed from the premises!! This happened to me and then on another occasion to my sister last night! Not good at all!!!!

Really nice place for a quiet meal. Admit that it was on a Wednesday evening and apart from our table, only one other couple were dining. Guess this place could be quite noisy on a busy weekend evening though. The food was delicious and of a high quality. It all tasted and looked freshly prepared. Would defiantly recommend this place.... More

We went on a Friday night and it was surprisingly empty. Surprising because the food was of a high quality and the waitress was very good. It may be that the venue is trying to cover too many bases - the front part of the building is a sort of sports bar aimed at a younger crowd while the restaurant... More
