Delicious home made meatball linguine today at The Courthouse. Consistently great food. The meals of the other people in our group also looked lovely and everyone commented on how tasty the food was. Will definitely be back soon.

We go to the Courthouse often and have never been let down. Food and service is always great and it is a family favourite. Menu has a great choice for lunch or dinner.

The Courthouse, situated in the heart of the financial district in Douglas, is the result of a painstaking project to transform the Grade II listed former courthouse building into the most prestigious and elegant bar, restaurant and Late Bar on the Isle of Man. Open 7 days a week, join us for freshly ground coffee from 11am. 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.
