Me and my wife went there for the first time,we were made very welcome by the Owner and staff. The Resturant was laid out very nice, we found the food was presented well and was tasted very good. It was so good we have booked again.

Checked on Tripadvisor for somewhere different to take my sister for lunch on Sunday and picked the Courtyard as I liked the sound of it. Great feel about the place. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. What more could you want? I had the whitebait to start followed by the seafood curry for main.... More

We found this restaurant down a side road off the front and you do dine in a courtyard which has been glassed over. The food is average and I know garden type chairs are trendy but for the prices paid I expect more comfort.

On the 27 August we held our Golden Wedding Lunch here and the Manager and Staff couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful. As there were 29 of us they agreed a Menu with us, which wasn’t one of their normal menus, suggested an arrangement of the tables, sorted the drinks for our guests and made us all very welcome....

It's a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly and help make this restaurant one of the best in the town. The food was great and... More

This restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and the food is really good and pretty well priced. The staff are informative and attentive without being overpowering. It has not long ago changed hands and the new owner has made some really good improvements. The restaurant was very busy but this didn't affect the quality of our food or the service... More

Were lucky to get a table on a Saturday as restaurant was booked solid and we turned up on spec but a table was just leaving as we arrived. Friendly and attentive service (despite being very busy), good food - including a separate veggie menu - and reasonable prices. Would happily come back. Only slight quibble was that there were...

We chose this place as we have been before for a family birthday a couple of years ago and thought it would be a good place to visit again as a family gathering. Waited 1.5hrs to be able to place a food order, not ideal as we had young children with us who we're getting very impatient and hungry during... More
