So glad we stumbled upon The Courthouse! Arrived around 9pm on Saturday evening, but no problem with ordering food. Lovely service and excellent food (had the burger which was excellent). After eating, moved into the busy bar area - fantastic atmosphere with DJ playing a mix of mainly late 80's / early 90's music, with a few current ones too.... More

Visit The Courthouse for an Evening Meal and it was just a great experience... The choices were excellent and the Fijitas and the Sea Bass were cooked extremely well... The desserts, although not a large selections, were to die for...

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.
