I absolutely love this café! Anna-Marie and all the other staff are so friendly, always make you feel welcome and will always go the extra mile to make their customers comfortable. Every week they move table to allow space for a regular customer who requires more space for his mobility scooter, no quibbles!! Homemade specials are always available as well as their main menu, and not forgetting an array of cakes and pastries, all of which are amazing - especially the scones with jam and clotted cream. It has a welcoming atmosphere, not too loud, and also has a nice little baby changing station which is fully equipped - a cosy little café I cannot fault! Highly recommended!!

Friendly staff, fantastic food and great value! My children loved their lunch as did I! Definately going back if only for the salted caramel ice cream

What a lovely lunch I've just experienced once again in the Courtyard cafe.
Fabulous service from smiley, friendly faces!
My partner & I both had the courtyard breakfast (I opted for the smaller version!) It was absolutely delicious! Followed by a delicious homemade fruit scone with clotted cream. Perfection!
Lovely atmosphere & surroundings too. Would highly recommend!

Four of us enjoyed a sumptuous tea at The Courtyard Café. We were on the motorway and decided to give the service station a wide berth. So pleased that we did. We arrived at 4.20pm and they were just closing. When the lady owner heard that we had made a special detour to her café she stayed open especially for us. How lovely is that! We enjoyed lovely homemade cakes and scones washed down with pots of tea and the children had yummy hot chocolate. All served with a smile from the owner. Will definitely take a detour again. Please don't close so early though. Don't know if they have outside seating, certainly not in February!

Popped in to The Courtyard Cafe today for lunch and had a lovely cheese and onion pie. The staff are so friendly and this makes for a great atmosphere. Looking forward to summer so I can sit outside in the sun. I highly recommend this place for everything from breakfast to afternoon.
