Courtyard Bar & Kitchen
The floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant give outstanding views of St George’s Hall and Lime Street Plateau while downstairs in the bar you can choose to drink inside or out on the newly created drinks garden.
Upstairs in the restaurant, our friendly staff bring out generous portions of freshly cooked, locally sourced food in a relaxed setting. The menu is frequently updated to take advantage of seasonal fruit and vegetables so you will have the best food on your plate every time you visit.
The ground floor bar is a relaxed space for people who like great beer and wine. With a mix of local cask ales and the best international drinks brands, there will be plenty to choose from.
Lovely venue for a meal before a visit to St George's Concert hall.
Fabulous view, lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, food was really nice and good value
Good service good food good value what more is there to say?! One thing the waitress really knew the dishes and her explanation of the dishes made you want to order them
We’ll be back for sure
My husband & I are frequent visitors to the royal court shows this was the first time we have tried the court yard we were going to a show at the playhouse with my brother & his wife . All 4 of u had a enjoyable meal
Staff were very friendly, food was good ,would definitely visit again
I had a good meal with friendly staff waiting on.Prices are reasonable for the pre theatre menu.
Excellent service the girls were so attentive and nothing was to much trouble . Food and menu were both very good and value for money . Highly recommend
Katsu chicken overcooked. Dry and tough. Starters excellent, mackerel particularly. Service slow
We were greeted promptly & cheerfully. The menu was explained & appropriate time given to make our choices. Menu is varied & interesting and the food is always good & beautifully presented.
Had a lovely meal post theatre matinee, food and service were brilliant. Only small criticism was it was a little cold in the restaurant. We did ask if the heat could be adjusted and the waitress said of course but it didn't seem to get any better. Still had a lovely evening though.
Delicious food, friendly staff, great location. We will tell our friends and we will return. Superb
The food was overcooked and then waiters long time for the replacement meal
Very nice food served quickly. We were having a pre-theatre meal and were a bit pushed for time. Couldn't fault the service and the view was phenomenal :)
Absolute rubbish very disappointed service and food have used this place on many occasions and took friends there as Its always been ok but not this time very disappointed .
Excellent service from our waitress and very good food. We were running over 30 mins late due to terrible traffic but I rang ahead and they held our table for us. When we got there we only had 40 minutes before we had to leave for a show at the Empire so the waitress put our mains order in first so it would all come out at the same. Very positive experience and will definitely go back.
Menu limited to about 6 main dishes and 3 desserts, but, apart from that, no complaints.
Really enjoyed our meal at the courtyard. Excellent service and excellent value, thank you x
Lovely staff, they wanted you to have a good time.
Staff and service excellent menu a little limited but the fish and chips were a delight some of the lightest battered fish I have had.
My friend and I enjoyed our meal here, 6pm on a Saturday. Restaurant was busy but not uncomfortably so, we had a table for 2 next to the window and it was very pleasant. Food was nice, we had 3 courses and it was fine for us as 2 women however I wonder if the portion sizes would have been big enough to satisfy my husband..
The courtyard was recommended to us and we were glad that we went. Very central and great for the station.
Nice food, good value for money with prompt service. Friendly staff and an interesting view!
I have been eating at The Courtyard since it opened and it’s always been my restaurant of first choice when going to the theatre but, unfortunately, I’m having a rethink. We had the pre theatre set menu on Friday and, although it appeared to good value for money, several of the dishes were not particularly appetising. The fish dish was good and enjoyed by my friend but the chicken kiev and katsu chicken curry were disappointing and not as expected. We had the harvest cake and mousse for desert and again were disappointed by the taste and texture, although the appearance of both dishes was good. All our drinks tasted good and were of good value. We didn’t complain because there was nothing wrong with the food it just wasn’t up to the usual standard. I think that this is yet another new menu but it is definitely not an improvement on the original menu. I would be reluctant to bring visitors to The Courtyard at the moment until there is a rethink. Very sad to have to write this unsupportive review. Sorry.
Service was Outstanding!!! Soup was too heavy peepers rock hard!! The noodles was far too salty the noodles was drowned in soy sauce ( inedible)!!! cheese board massive blocks of cheese not enough crackers 😔I was so disappointed but you don’t know if you don’t try but I won’t be going back in a hurry👎sorry 😐
Lovely no fuss meals.. good value for money food and drink wise..nice and modern
My friend and I had a meal there prior to going to The Royal Court Theatre next door, so we chose off the pre-theatre menu. Last time I went I had the fish and chips and to be truthful, I found the menu a bit limited, so had fish and chips again. My friend had them this time too and she was disappointed with hers as she thought the batter was soggy. Mine was lovely. It was busier this time too and we found that if we wanted anything we had to really make the staff notice us, so the service wasn't quite as we expected. To be honest, when we go to the theatre again we may go to another restaurant due to the lack of choice on that particular menu.
1st visit and wow everything from start to finish amazing
Very pleasant dining experience. Menu quite limited but understandable due to how busy the restaurant became over the course of the evening.
On the positive side the servings are very generous. The amount on the plate and the presentation is very “agricultural “. Can’t complain about the food though - it’s plain but well cooked. Ideal location for the theatre and reasonable value. They are very busy pre-theatre so expect to wait for your food.
Food was extremely cold and the service was poor. The menu was limited.
Food is a little disappointing. Feels like pre prepared and limited choice although salad elements were fresh and tasty. Bread with soup was rock hard. Staff dealt with that well and apologised. Reasonable price for pre theatre and great view of St Georges Hall.
We had not visited the Courtyard Bar before and decided to give it a go before a night at the theatre, we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and happily discussed the menu, suggesting dishes when we could not decide. The choice catered for all tastes and the Teriyaki Salmon withe prawns and noodles comes highly recommended. My husband enjoyed his pulled lamb burger and the prosecco and blackcurrant cheesecake should not be missed. Our request for ice cream with the desserts looked like another dessert. 3 scoops of ice cream decorated with strawberries, raspberries and topped with strawberry sauce went down very well. We will certainly be back and highly recommend that you try it.
Was very disappointed with the menu not much variety we asked for ice cream dessert had none all though it was on the menu then we asked for Irish coffee not cream or whipped cream. I will not be going again that is for sure and will never recommend it the royal court which we go to often there menu is very good more variety
We went for pre dinner show. Food was great and the service was fast and polite.
Lovely friendly staff. Food was delicious and great price.
Three of four meals were ok. Fourth meal the chips were cold and were replaced 10 mins later. 2 chosen desserts were not available so cheesecake for 4 of us but that was still frozen and so we complained and it was removed from bill. Staff were very good overall, but we would not return there as it wasn’t a great start to our theatre trip.
Found the food beautiful and very well presented
The staff were wonderful very good attention to detail
The menu was limited and most of the menu was unavailable, also, there was only one staff available. She did give amazing service, even under pressure.
Nice place and friendly staff. Disappointed in the overall service as two of the choices on what was a limited pre theatre menu anyway had ‘run out’ and neither of us could have what we wanted.
That said the waiting staff were very attentive at what was a very busy time in the restaurant.
College reunion weekend, pre theatre dinner before Motown the Musical. Lovely relaxing atmosphere with tasty food and brilliant outlook over the theatre, would definitely recommend.
The restaurant was empty which I thought strange for a Saturday afternoon, the menu choice was very limited then we were told one of those choices was not available. My friend asked for a cup of tea and was told only herbal tea was available then asked for a coffee with cream but was told no cream available. Two of us ordered the chicken kievs which was extremely dry and no sauce inside it and very small fillet of chicken a plate full of fries. I never send food back because I know what happens to complainers food when sent back. I will never visit again.
