Four of us were meeting up after not seeing each other for so long. My husband and I had eaten lunch here last year and were impressed. No one knew where to eat so I booked on the easy to use app Opentable. I love the building (used to go here when it was Harveys and whatever bar before then many years ago). We were greeted and shown to our table. the menu has so many burgers to choose from (spoiled for choice tbh) and other dishes on the menu too. We all had different meals and I was still gushing at work today how amazing the fillet/bacon burger was. The service was excellent and so was the food. Definitely will be returning again soon to eat or drink, or both. There is also outside seating available but we were happy to sit in a lovely cool place to dine.

Good food in nice surroundings, swift service. Choice of inside or outside, although parasols or some kind of shade would be a welcome addition especially in temperatures exceeding 30c as it was on the day of my visit.

Took my husband here for tea on his birthday. I had eaten here once last year and it was good. This time it was just ok. Nothing special. My refried bean and cheese quesadilla had a taste and texture of baked beans mashed with mashed potatoes and so much cheese like a whole block of cheese was used. Husband had a burger and found the sauce wasn’t hot as expected. We both ordered curly fries with the meals but received sweet potato fries. Our drinks were ok but have had better. Staff seemed preoccupied talking and swearing to each other at the bar. May try here again in the future as the building and decor is lovely but won’t be rushing back.

A nice atmosphere and great value for money, just a shame that the manager had all his mates coming in for the match so didn’t care about the rest of the customers!

Good for drinks but considering we booked a meal we couldn’t even hear ourselves think never mind talk to each other. Couldn’t enjoy the food because it was so loud and ruined our night. Also options for people with dietary requirements is awful and overpriced.

Went for food and drinks Saturday afternoon.Service was good, food was delicious and the portions were a good size.We had a few cocktails and a bottle of prosecco that was reasonably priced .Place was lively but gave the place a good atmosphere and was perfect for afternoon food and drinks with friends.

We came to the courthouse as a party of 9 sat at 3 tables close to each other. We ordered our food around the same time and everyone else in our party had received and eaten their meals. An hour and half later after being seated, our table were still waiting for our food to arrive despite being told on numerous occasions by staff that our food would be with us in the next 5 minutes. People that had come in the restaurant and ordered after us were being served there food! We ended up leaving without eating to be told on the way out that the reason for the delay is because there was only 2 chefs in that day and other customers that came in after us were getting there food before us because our order took longer to cook (we ordered burgers and chips the same as most people in the restaurant)

Went for food but it was more of a bar. Very loud. Maybe ideal for casual drinks but date night a no. Table we were sat at was next to the stairs so not ideal for the occasion. Ended up leaving after 1 drink.

The waitress with the dark hair wearing a blazer was lovely! It’s a shame the rest of the staff weren’t the same. Considering how quiet it was it took a while to get the bill- drinks- food etc. The staff stood around gossiping and we could hear the chatting.
Drinks order came wrong and the food wasn’t the best.
Probably wouldn’t go back.
