“Good place to eat”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We visited Courtyard twice... Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were excellent. Staff were very friendly, even though the waitress was rushed off her feet during the dinner service! Good choice on dinner menu, more limited for light lunches / snacks. Place is very clean and presentable and good value for money.

“Business Dinner”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Lovely Setting and clean, excellent food, only thing I could fault was staff seemed to stand about a little chatting about their work when they could have made sales, happened a couple times, In saying that very polite and patient when it came to waiting for us to leave. Should have taken up that last drink though as the Kenmore Hotel where we stayed wont let you get drinks after the bar is shut regardless of being a resident!

“Great food! Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have been visiting Kenmore for over 20 years and The Courtyard has been a very welcome recent addition. I visited the restaurant twice during my week-long stay last week and on both occasions the food was excellent. Very fresh and tasty with enough variety to cater for all tastes. The puddings and wine lists are good accompaniments to any meal! The bar is well stocked with good beers and spirits as well. My only reservation was the launch of a new menu on the Easter weekend which did delay service a bit but the staff coped very well and the food was as good as ever. I'd thoroughly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

Thank you for your review of the Courtyard and the positive comments. Please accept our apologies for the delay in service caused in part by the launch of the new menu and its popularity! We hope you will visit us again on your next trip to Kenmore.

“if you dont want to cater for yourself try here”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant; we were entertained by a piper who was greeting each member of a small party as they arrived. It was a good menu for both adults and children
There was a hen party who were rather noisy in the other half of the restaurant ( I understand there are large properties in this complex that cater for hen & I presume stag dos, not quite sure the area is where men would go) But to their credit did quieten down they also left quite early to continue in their own lodge I presume.
The restaurant has a nice bar area with comfortable settees for those just wanting a drink
