This was our first visit and it won't be our last. Nice bar area where you can enjoy a drink before eating. The dining area is light and warm with a glass roof which retracts if the weather is good. There is also a function room which seats 30 with a film screen. There was a 60th lunch while we... More

Had lunch and dinner at The Courtyard several times and always very happy with the range and quality of the food and the friendly efficient service. The space is light and airy and suitable for both couples and larger groups. The new lunch menu is excellent and good value - the hake was as good as it gets. One of... More

My 2 friends go here frequently and I was pleased to join them tonight. We had good service and ordered bar snacks like garlic mushrooms, cheesy chips, pulled ham and tempura vegetables with chilli dipping sauce. Owners and staff friendly. Nice food in bar a bit like tapas (an idea for bar snacks??!) and wine good. We'll be back 😊

The warm friendly party atmosphere is enhanced by the extremely proficient, courteous and professional staff. The ambience completed by the hosts, Raj... More

Came here for a meal yesterday for the first time with my partner. The bar is cosy and welcoming and a great place to sit with a drink while you wait to go through to the restaurant. The menu was quite small which at this time of year is better as they seem to be focusing on local produce rather... More
