The young lady who seen to use why we was there and took our orders was lovely and very polite, she also carried out all COVID-19 procedure which made us feel very safe. All the staff were very welcoming and polite too. Food was spot on.

AmaIng waitress - we didn’t catch her name but she was very attentive and polite despite being the only one on. Unfortunately we didn’t have any cash for a tip but we were very impressed.
Food was beautiful and great value with the 50% off scheme.

We made a booking for 2 at 8pm. We was greeted by a young girl who was sorting out our booking, she told us to then stand at the bar.. we were stood there around 30 mins. No one acknowledged us or told us our table was ready. It got to 8.30 and we saw someone we knew so went to sit with them instead. Very disappointed in the service we received by the young girl. However the drinks were lovely, the place was nice and bar staff were really nice.

Greeted by friendly host who was aware of the restaurants Covid procedures, we had booked a table in advance and it was ready for us on a busy Saturday night which doesn’t happen often! The host provided us with disposable menus and a service card that we could turn from red to green when we wanted service which was something I never realised how much I needed whilst eating in a restaurant 😂
The drinks menu is amazing, we tried the majority of the cocktails off the menu and they all come tasting as good as they looked.
We ordered a range of items from the menu from the small plates options as starters then a portion of buttermilk chicken popcorn pieces and the waffle winston burger for mains, I’ve never experienced love like it! The food was so good, I was so full but didn’t want to stop eating. I think I also read on the menu that everything they serve is sourced from local companies and prepped in house, right down to their burger sauces and nacho cheese sauce!
Overall, my experience at the courthouse was great and I will definitely return again. The staff are friendly, the drinks are great. They have done a super job at adapting to the Covid pandemic through use of floor markings, one way systems, hand sanitiser and less contact between staff and customers.
I’ve already booked another table for in a weeks time, I can’t wait to return 😁🥰

Walked in and was greeted by a very miserable looking waitress. Was shoved in the middle of a load of loud drinkers. Stayed for 2 minutes before leaving. Too loud for a sit down meal. Couldnt hear a thing, more ideal for pre drinks before town as opposed to restaurant.

Really good food, only negative is my daughter prefers French fries rather than chips. I asked if she could have French fries and told no as her burger only comes with chips.

I messaged prior to the meal asking about food, I was not advised they was working on a reduced menu. Also with it being a town centre pub I did not expect to be seated next to young children at 8pm.

The food was OK ive eaten here a few other times it wasn't as good as then.

I have to say the lady who served us was very good, apologetic when we had to wait a while for our few drinks and was very nice throughout our visit.

This was our 4th time at The Courthouse and as usual we had a great experience. The staff are lovely and they have made a big effort to make social distancing easy to adhere to.
The food was great, we both had a waffle chicken burger and it was amazing, absolutely huge portion though, I couldn’t finish it but the waitress was kind enough to box it up for me to take away. Cocktails are delicious too, highly recommend the espresso martini!
Looking forward to visiting again 😊

Booked table due to google reviews and the images displayed showed the food was sublime and a stunning place to eat. Staff were superb and very welcoming with a very easy way around the place (Post covid) prices were fair, I was disappointed in the very limited menu and food quality, I ordered a burrito and buffalo wings - the wings were presented very well but tasted very vinegary. My burrito was greasy and I could only eat half of it due to this, the presentation wasn't to my taste being served in a basket (you may want to rethink this) I had to ask for a plate so I could eat it.. Wine and drink selection were good and had plenty of choice also served very well.. All in all it was an OK experiance, I'd return but maybe just for drinks on an evening out..

The food was fab, we got lots of the sharing plates and each one was delicious, especially the garlic prawn! The service from Husky (that was the name on our receipt) was great he was very attentive and couldn’t do enough for us, he was also following all of the COVID guidelines! Couldn’t recommend enough and great value as well our bill came to £45 and we had a bottle of wine and 6 sharing plates

Brilliant food and service until mains were cleared away. We then had to find the server and ask for dessert menus, but were only then told we couldn't order as we'd booked in too late, and we'd have had to order them with the rest of our food. We would have if we'd have known, but at no point did anyone tell us! We'll definitely come back, but will ask about desserts first next time...

Been to courthouse previously and had a good meal. Arrived at 7.30 on the 29th and was given a table promptly. We then had our order taken. We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks to be brought which arrived just before our food. The wraps and steak on the meal was cold - we had no table check. We also felt the music was extremely loud considering this is a restaurant.

First visit here with friends for pre theatre meal.
Food was delicious, chicken & chorizo paella was top notch a friend had lamb and she said it melted in her mouth.
Staff helpful and friendly, good selection of drinks & cocktails. Reasonably priced.
The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 was the ladies toilets needed an overhaul as either out of order, broken seats, broken locks or no paper. Not great bearing in mind it was only 6pm and had a dull nights use ahead of them.

Nice to see the restaurant after the refurbishment, we hadn't been since it was Harvey's so were quite impressed and glad we chose it before visiting the theatre. Staff were very friendly and chatty and the food we chose was excellent, we loved the tapas style dishes from a good choice of different food options on the menu. The only complaint was that the restaurant felt really cold while we were eating even though the industrial heaters were in use but we appreciate is a big building to heat. This didn't put us off and we will definitely return to try some different choices on the menu. Thanks
