    We are new to the area and found the restaurant from a recommendation on a local website. The service from entrance to leaving was very friendly & efficient, just perfect. I had the roast beef and it was melt in the mouth and great value, my daughter really enjoyed her sirloin steak, reasonably priced and my husband loved his lobster (which I thought was very expensive ). There was a live singer performing and as we were in the back room I had hoped that the volume might be a little lower, this might be something that they might consider for future. A great restaurant, great choices of drinks (I believe they stock over 100 gins!!) we shall return.

    The service at the Courtyard was excellent. The staff were polite and very friendly. Food was good although quite small portions. However, the evening was spoilt because we were all so cold that by the time we had our dessert, we were all wearing our coats as there was such a draft. We thought it was air conditioning but it turned out to be the very high glass ceiling.

    Went on our wedding anniversary. Had a great meal,could not fault it. The whole night was a success. Only criticism was that the tables were too close together you could here everything being said by the tables either side of you. That said I would go again.

    As usual, a great venue to eat with superb ambience and a pleasant warmth. Staff were very busy with a large order elsewhere so a little distracted with the remainder of customers. We actually had 4 different members of staff serving us, all very good I hasten to add. Not too long to wait for service and all taken with a cheery smile. The big letdown and I mean the BIG let down was the food I had ordered. I decided on the beefburger thinking it would be better than most fast-food restaurants at £15. What came , came on a small oblong wooden board, with no space to cut the burger in half, chips that looked like the leftover scraps and not at edible and also cold, the salad was was so bland and of course, no space to season on this small board. The roll was so dry that even as I cut it in half, it just broke into pieces. The burger itself was divine and it would have been a great meal if everything else had been correct. I spoke to a waitress and she apologised immediately and asked if I wanted a replacement which I declined and in her favour she took the £15 off my bill. On the whole, as it was our 44th wedding anniversary and we did not want a lavish affair, this was slightly marred by my meal.
