Food was absolutely beautiful!! The steak was done to perfection, we both enjoyed our tasty starters too. Service was good, had to ask for the bill twice though, staff were friendly but not entirely attentive. The quality of food made up for it though! Nice place to eat, stylish decor & great drinks menu. Would recommend & we’d definitely come back.

Everything was great about our experience at The Courthouse, other than other customers constantly walking around/to the toilets without wearing masks. An obvious disregard from some towards other customers!

Lovely lunch out with my family. The waitresses were so attentive and helpful. The food was amazing! I was recommended the loaded steak fries and they were insane! Will definitely be ordering them to my house over lockdown.

Was a little cold at the door and the music level in the background was a little loud at times but the food and service was outstanding ! One of the best steaks I’ve tried and the teriyaki chicken was amazing ! Great value.

Very noisy, slow service & all over the place in terms of staff.

Overall I nice little restaurant, the pictures & food on the website is definitely fake. It’s small but nice place.

I wouldn’t recommend for a special anniversary or something but for a casual meal definitely!

Ordered salt and pepper chicken wings, there was literally no seasoning on them. Just full of batter and salad.
My pepperoni pizza had 2 slices of pepperoni on top.
Apart from that the service was really quick due to there only being 2 other couples in at the same time.

We had the 3 starters deal which was lovely. Large portions too. Aldo had pizza and garlic ciabatta and cheese which was lovely and fresh too. The steak and cheese baguette was absolutely delicious. Very clean and social distancing rules apply. Table service for drinks too.

This is a lovely restaraunt and bar , lovely decor , excellent service, great food and drink. The staff are fab and are very efficient. They have a one way system for social distancing and the tables are widespread. The cocktails are delicious and the cocktail trees are great value for money. Definately worth a visit and we will be returning. Thankyou Courthouse.

The seating was a little close together especially in this current climate, they sat us behind a pillar which wasn’t ideal because to get service you had a card which you needed to put on your table on the green side but no one could see us and didn’t check for 10 mins. Had to complain twice as it took 45 minutes for our cocktails after asking twice about them and they weren’t even nice unfortunately. We ended up getting a different waitress in the end.

As for the food it was extremely good and I can’t really fault it but the service is the reason I won’t be going back as it spoiled our night.

We pre booked for when the restaurant opened and were seated after a short wait. The waitress was likeable and explained all of the covid precautions fully before ordering. We chose two steak meals and cocktails. They were beautiful! Even though there was a delay with the food arriving due to getting busy very quickly, we were reassured throughout and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food is really lovely and well worth the money at full price. We will be returning!

TERRIBLE SERVICE ..... AVOID!!!
I purchased a groupon voucher for afternoon tea only to find that after booking and travelling to the venue they were no longer honouring the vouchers and were not serving afternoon teas.
They had no alternative in place and the fact I had paid in advance had absolutely no relevance to them.
I spoke to several members of staff but they were not at all helpful and had a very matter of fact attitude. They no longer served afternoon teas (even though the voucher is still available to purchase) and that was that!
I asked to speak to the manager but he shared the same appalling attitude and was more concerned about the percentage groupon take from each sale than offering a substitute. He began to lecture us on cost and profits informing us that it was not cost effective to honour the voucher or offer a substitute. His customer service skills were some what lacking and very disappointing. His main advice was for us to contact groupon for a refund.
No attempt was made to compensate us for making a special trip and being greatly disappointed.
When we expressed our disappointment and requested an alternative he was very reluctant to offer anything. After a painful wait while he was ifing and buting he basically offered us the eat out to help out discount.
We then decided to purchase a two steak offer rather than leave with absolutely nothing but when we tried to place our order he refused to give us the 50% discount on the steak offer and informed us that we would have to pay the full price stated on the menu.
At this point we decided to leave. As we got up to leave he followed us out of the restaurant continuing to lecture us of cost effectiveness.
I have been to the restaurant several times before but I will not be returning.
They are using a major site such as Groupon to advertise and drive custom to their restaurant with absolutely no intention to honour the voucher. This is false advertising and terrible service!
