We had a table of 12 which included a baby. The service was great. We arrived 20 minutes early due to a wedding finishing sooner than expected and the staff were very accommodating.
Our drinks were bought promptly and we were asked regularly if we needed more. Our food arrived in good time and despite there being 12 of us it was all hot & served together.
The food choices were great and everyone had something different. Everyone enjoyed their food, it was good quality and fresh.
We needed a highchair which was provided and was spotless!
Prices were very reasonable.
The toilets were clean and easily accessible.
We were really impressed with The Court House and should we be in Bolton city centre again this will be our first choice!

Hey, we do apologise for how loud it got on Friday, we experienced a few technical issues with ur speaker system, we can assure you this isn't our usual ambiance. We look forward to seeing you again and hope you can enjoy the proper Courthouse experience soon.

Service was very poor, took 20 minutes for drinks to arrive even though they where sat on the bar melting!! (frozen cocktail) frustrating especially when not a busy night. Waitress walked passed them twice.
food was delicious and good value for money.
Definitely recommend the braised beef cheek, mash and caramelised carrot.
Cocktails, when finally received where delicious.
Food was served without cutlery!! We had to chase the waitress for forks.

The only problem I had was with the food. I ordered the chicken, bacon and parmesan covered chips, but what it didn't state on the menu was that it is a parmesan cream sauce. If I had known I wouldn't have ordered it as I have lactose intolerance, so didn't enjoy it. Things like that should be stated on the menu so that customers know what they are buying. I will definitely go again but I will just order something else.

I took my sister for a meal to celebrate her school grades. We decided to go during the day on a Sunday. There was outdoor seating available and the day was lovely but we sat inside in one of the booths. There was a staff member to greet us as soon as we walked in and helped us with menus. The food was amazing, great sized portions and priced accordingly. So overall from booking experience to leaving the place, it was fantastic and I couldn't fault it.

Overall we had very pleasant night. We had a bit of a mix up with our food order but it was dealt with promptly and no quibbles. The food was amazing and well worth the money. Portion sizes are huge a d would say if your not a big eater go for the bitesize menu as the portions are smaller. Will definetely be back especially for food.

Overall the food, drinks and service was good. Quite busy, and as a couple in our sixties we found the music to be much too loud while we were eating. Had I realised this, I wouldn’t have booked. Too young and lively for us.

Food was amazing as always!! So tasty and good value for the price definitely! Only complaint I would have is that there was no mint for mojitos and no bbq sauce, however this is understandable for a Wednesday. But other than that it was brilliant as always, I have recommended to people as I always enjoy the food and the drinks are delicious :)

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.
