Went Easter weekend and generally had an enjoyable experience. Excellent, friendly service, lovely place / atmosphere, really nice main courses & gorgeous chocolate brownie; however, a big 'but'... the 'crab' salad starter was non-existent.

On a recent visit to the area decided to have a meal here as we had a good experience a few years ago. We were not disappointed everything was fine dining at its best . The waitress was attentive & friendly. This is how it should be done, keep up the good work.

I had an evening meal along with two friends at the end of a week-long course. What a wonderful way to end the week. There were several tempting choices on the menu, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent, especially as we had a couple of special requests of the wait staff (sending a bottle of... More

My wife has the beef which she said was lovely and I had the fish and chips which was also very nice. All the staff were excellent and courteous especially one particular young lady, I think she...

The Courthouse is fabulous for a meal. Always a relaxing intimate atmosphere. The staff are very professional and the food is absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend the seafood croquettes for starter and the chocolate bowl for dessert. The slow cooked beef, the steak and the thai curry are fab for main course.
