Celebrated our 25th anniversary last night at the court yard, the food they laid on was fantastic and the staff looked after us brilliantly, thank you to everyone there

Nice surroundings, lovely building. Food good for some dishes and poor in others. Service was poor, didn't see any waiting staff during the meal, didn't get asked if we needed more drinks meaning everyone had an empty glass while eating the meal. Despite being the only table in the restaurant. Should have had the burger. Staff were very pleasant when... More

Exceptional effort by all members of staff, no matter what their job role. Food excellent. Owner bent over backwards 4 us. Even put Metallica on for background entertainment for my heavy metal head banging boyfriend. And cut my food up for me, as I struggled deboning my fish. Highly recommended xxx

I was very surprised to see that someone thought the Courtyard had no vegetarian options, when they have a whole vegetarian menu, with plenty of choice for all courses. I've been there many times and thoroughly enjoyed most of the options they offer. The only criticism I have is that they seem overpriced these days. Three slices of grilled haloumi... More

We entertained friends here over the weekend and they were impressed with the surroundings and general ambience. We couldn't fault the service which was very attentive and the bar service was pretty good. Unfortunately the food rather let the place down and the overall impression was that the restaurant sacrificed quality in favour of maximising their profit. I opted for... More

We stopped by to take a look whilst walking around Deal. The place has two rooms. We had a drink only ,but looked at the snack menu which looked very enticing. Two members of staff at the bar. They had an ale on which suited us. High chairs in the bar area. The restaurant area was spacious , the toilets... More

Fortunately, I eat fish because I took my elderly Aunt out for an evening meal at The Court Yard Oyster Bar and Restaurant very recently on a Saturday night in October. She eats meat and so was pleased with her meal choices and the quality of her food. I am a pescatarian which is just as well, as there was... More

Don't be put off by the location of this restaurant. It's situated down a side street and looks as if you are entering through a garage door but inside it opens out into a large bar with restaurant attached to the side. The restaurant is in a large covered courtyard and has a great atmosphere. Although we dined as a... More
