“Coffee and breakfast heaven!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have used the Courtyard (well the Bishops Court Tearooms as was!) for several years and after trying all the various offerings in Daventry come back time and again. The service is great and as friendly as you could hope for - everyone's made welcome - even if it's your first visit. Paul cooks up a mean breakfast and even though the coffee was good, the new Nespresso (spelling??) is superb - bettered only in Italian cafes in my eyes!

The genuinely homemade cakes are a treat I can't indulge in too often - though a take home scone does come with me occassionally!

If you need a recommendation - this is the best place in Daventry!

See you there soon!

“Amazing Cakes !!!!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I visited The Courtyard Cafe with my girlfriends two weeks ago after the re-launch and the new coffee machine had arrived....it was the best cup of coffee I had had in months there were so many different kinds of tea and coffee available. Our lunch was superb and extremely good value but the best bit was the cakes..all home made and absolutely delicious, I would give it a ten out of ten for service, quality and price. Will definately be visiting again soon.
