After going back to it's original format the Courthouse is one of our favourites. Food is lovely, it's getting harder to pick as they all taste good - steak, duck, burgers (with Blue Monday cheese) fajitas, tasting plates. The salmon from their Christmas menu is delicious. Can't wait to go back in the new year. They also do a speedy... More

We had group of 9 buying expensives drinks and ordering food (the special mostly, which was not clear on the fact that the two course meal had to be a starter and main and a certain starter at that!). We found it a shame that the magemant saw fit to charge extra for the "combo" fajita rather than just let... More

Called in at lunchtime and ate in the main bar area. The food was good, and reasonable value, however the staff behind the bar were a bit like rabbits in the headlights, and unsure of the basics. Overall, reasonable and would go back.

First time visitor to this establishment and I was more than impressed with the fantastic food and service. The layout of the bar is a refreshing change for the island and the atmosphere wasn't overbearing for a weekend. Will definitely eat there again. One little bit of feedback. Take the Yorkshire puddings off the steak menu. Yorkshires should only be... More

The Courthouse has returned its contemporary roots after the 'Buddy Rocks' venture and a very welcome return too. Great atmosphere inside, plenty of space, very friendly staff and really excellent choice of food which is great value for money. I've been twice recently and keep going back to the shepherds pie on the 'comfort food' part of the menu -... More

My daughter booked 5 of us here for Sunday lunch recently as it was her birthday. Two members of the party were booked into an activity centre for 3pm and we had to be finished the meal by 2.30pm to get there in time so the restaurant booking was for 12.30 pm to give plenty of time to eat without...

Hi Pegasus, I want to apologise for your experience with us, You hit the nail on the head and the issue was staffing, we had 2 experienced staff that let us down on that morning and we had 2 relatively inexperienced staff that were in for training with them, basically we had a team on that could not cope with...

Contemporary sophisticated surroundings in the business district- lots of suits . Good speedy lunch menu- guarantee your food within 20 minutes or they reduce the bill by 50% . They do a range of hot lunch dishes - simple and tasty ( Home made lasagne , garlic bread and salad) There is a more extensive and interesting normal menu but... More

1pm, Friday lunch time. Two of us popped for quick bite to eat, time been precious. Slight delay for drink service, so one of us went to sit at a table as most tables were already busy. Order placed - two steak ciabatta sandwiches - which arrived in under ten minutes. Very tasty and attractively presented. Had a splash of... More
