I organised a surprise 21st Birthday Meal for my daughter. Raj , Margaret and the Team were brilliant from start to finish. A 3 course meal was created with various options for £20. The food was superb and the service was brilliant. I will be going back very soon maybe even for the Valentines Special Menu. Thank you once again

Went to this restaurant with my family (husband and two toddlers) and was blown away by the food, ambiance and service! The food was unreal! Amazing dishes, especially the Sri Lankan-English fusion ones. The owners were so hospitable, even buckling in my youngest in his high chair. There's a great sky light which adds such great natural lighting to the... More

This was our first visit and it won't be our last. Nice bar area where you can enjoy a drink before eating. The dining area is light and warm with a glass roof which retracts if the weather is good. There is also a function room which seats 30 with a film screen. There was a 60th lunch while we... More

Had lunch and dinner at The Courtyard several times and always very happy with the range and quality of the food and the friendly efficient service. The space is light and airy and suitable for both couples and larger groups. The new lunch menu is excellent and good value - the hake was as good as it gets. One of... More
