Spent a few hours in the upstairs bar, paying over the odds for single drinks. No contactless payment option and a minimum spend of £10 on card. It's not the 90's anymore!!

Leisurely lunches can be whiled away from midday... then, as the evening unfolds, sample the finest cocktails made by our expert bar tenders, followed by fine dining of modern British cuisine in the restaurant accompanied by wines and champagne supplied by Corney & Barrow. Later, as the night draws in, head to the Courthouse Late Bar... sumptuous surroundings, flamboyant drinks, a crystal clear music system and VIP area available by reservation all meld together to create a truly unforgettable experience.
