Went here on a saturday night with my sisters for a meal having pre-booked. We were shown to our table, one of the nice booths so we were pretty happy. We ordered drinks pretty soon after, so far so good but soon went down hill. We waited ages for our food orders to be taken to then have to wait... More

Hi Megan, Thanks very much for your review, I appreciate your comments about the quality of the food and I am sorry for the delay that you and your guests suffered on the night. As a business we try to space out the bookings and get people to arrive at different times throughout the night so we don't over load... More

We visited with friends for a colleagues birthday and the atmosphere and venue were fab! We reserved a private area and the staff looked after us all very well. Can't wait to return!

Booked on Saturday night for a meal with my wife - service was quite friendly and seated at the table quickly - starters were good with the portion size excellent . The main courses were disappointing with the steak quite tough and the special sausages were bland . We decided to stay for a drink in the bar after the... More

We struggled to find somewhere that looked good to have a meal in, (not suggesting there was nowhere else decent to eat) but when we looked into the Courthouse, we knew that this should be a good place to eat. We were right, our food was good and hot and well presented. The staff were friendly and polite.

Business lunch turned into a real pleasure. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere is so perfect for discussing business without feeling interrupted. Look forward to going one evening for the Courthouse Club.The bar is extensive and although we didn't sample any of the array of drinks on this occasion, maybe next time we will come on a social visit.

wanted something small late-ish on a Saturday evening. Restaurant busy but bar quiet. Ordered sharing platter of meats and cheeses, added ciabatta for two pounds more (recommended!). Great quality food and very good value. Good wine by the glass, nice service, terrific music from the DJ for those of a certain vintage like me.

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
