Eaten here many times now. Many visitors to my business stay and eat here too. It's a great place to stay and eat. A really nice friendly pub. The food is always good and the service is always excellent. Always busy mid week when I go - which is another good sign. Good value too

Great breakfast and lovely big towels changed daily in the room. Evening food had a good choice, and the car park was big enough for both residents and overnighters. Appreciated the ceiling fan as the nights were warm. The Court House is well positioned for accessing north,east, and south.

Stayed for 2 nights in very comfortable, clean, modern chalet-style rooms. We had dinner in their restaurant and they originally didn't have sorbet but then went into their own freezer to get some which was very polite and nice. The food was amazing and a real range of tastes. Very clean and fresh feel to it. The owners were very... More

Since re-opening about 2 years ago, after full refurbishment, the restaurant has raised standards. Good decor, no loud background music, pleasant atmosphere, easy parking, and a choice of two rooms in which to eat. Staff are attentive, and friendly, without being over familiar. The choice of food is fair in the sense that there are traditional gastro pub choices, veggie... More

We visited with our son and his family recently for an evening meal. The staff were very polite, the food was delicious and they made sure our two grandchildren were well looked after. Sadly, no room for dessert! Reasonably priced, good homely food.

Was reasonable, had to wait for food, was ok, salad looked tired, crisps where really cheap ones. My colleagues toast was burnt, I wouldn't have eaten it, his scrambled egg with salmon, looked congealed, and cold, he said it was just warm. Other cooked meals being served looked very good.
