Court House Cafe is a quaint little cafe in the park with tasty sandwiches and home made cakes that melt in the mouth - staff are friendly and welcoming. Sitting outside in the summer is a real treat.

Lovely outdoor area geared towards young families. Large bouncy castles for the kids to play on whilst you enjoy a hot cup of coffee.

Took my grandson here today and was appalled with the surroundings that are not only unkempt but potentially dangerous for crawling babies and toddlers alike - in fact if an official had visited from Health & Safety there would have been a few questions raised...More

Taking the children to the park isn't nearly so bad when you have a cafe like The Old Courthouse! The service is always friendly (if sometimes a little slow) but the kids love the toasted sandwiches, and the club is also good. I don't seem...More

Stopped by here for coffee and sandwich. Also ice-cream. Cafe is in a leafy park behind the Courthouse with amenities and tables set up outside. Pleasant stroll around the gardens, well worth a visit!

Do you have soya (or other non-dairy) milk? Also is the menu on your website complete? It seems very limited compared to the options seen here!

We do have Soya as an alternative to milk. Our full menus are on the website. I'm sorry you feel our menu is limited but we have a very small space to work within. We do try to cater to all the latest dietary trends and... More
