Very Enjoyable Dinner

We went to The Court Yard for dinner, it was my first time but a couple in our party were locals who had been before. This restaurant specialises in fish dishes which we all had. Baked Cod, Mussels and Skate Wing in a butter and caper sauce. All the meals were lovely, there was a great atmosphere... read more

Lovely restaurant and great atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. I had the sea bass and my mum had the fish curry which she loved! The new owners were very friendly and it had a lovely family feel to the place. We will definitely be coming back soon :).

Lovely Sunday roast. Fresh vegetables, delicious gravy, roast potatoes, and Yorkshire pud done with flare. Good variety on the menu including Sri Lankan curry, and seafood dishes. The restaurant is in the courtyard with a glass roof, so it's very light and airy. Sometimes there is live music. Today there was a jazz pianist. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Charming hosts and...

As a party of 7 ladies, we visited the Courtyard on Saturday for a meal and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and new owners were extremely friendly. We had intended moving on after the meal but the staff encouraged everyone to dance and even joined in themselves. It was a great atmosphere and we eventually left at... More

The table was beautifully decorated, the cocktails were brilliant, the staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious! What made the night even more special was the dancing at the end! There were quite a few parties in and... More
