I visit this cafe frequently for many reasons, good food and beverages, me time and to meet with friends. I also take my mother who is in a wheelchair (easy access & helpful staff). My most recent visit being Friday (15 March). This cafe is always busy but yesterday it was extremely busy, I ordered a toasted sandwich & coffee which were lovely. I had the usual great service and send my thanks to all the staff...............well done to you all :)

“Loving the teas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I visit often and have always loved the friendly family atmosphere. I am working my way through the new tea list, spiced apple my favourite at the moment. The everyday yorkshire tea and a slice of one of the many cakes on offer is my Saturday afternoon treat after all the chores!

“Fabulous food & great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The cafe is a little hidden treasure within a great little Courtyard. The menu is fantastic and daily specials well worth trying. If you get the chance go for the mini breakfast, its delicious and the best bacon I have ever tasted.
The cafe is family friendly. The staff are really lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them.

So pleased you liked the food and recognised the change in atmosphere. We think that it has always been good, but we are grateful that customers are being so honest and open about our changes, and as we are much busier, this comes as a result of customers who have traditionally and happily used other cafes in town and now find a place that makes them smile and happy in a different way, look forward to meeting you personally x

“Delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I have used The Courtyard Cafe for both take away and eat-in and have been really impressed by service, quality and choice. I love that they use locally sourced ingredients, serve high quality teas (in the coolest teapots!) and sell home made cakes of naughtiness.
I have found that my fussy requests are always happily catered for and everything is made fresh.
This cafe is a delightful place to lose myself when I need some quiet time away from the office to get work done with a lovely cuppa.
The warm welcome and comfy sofas always make me smile.
