“Excellent afternoon tea!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We decided to visit the Courtyard as a last minute outing to have afternoon tea yesterday (Saturday) afternoon. The website advised that booking is essential so I phoned them at 2pm and at 3pm we were sat at our table looking out at the splendid gardens.

The house champagne was served in generously large flutes. We had never heard of the brand but it tasted as good as a premium non-vintage champagne. When the food arrived it looked splendid. And it was.

The sandwiches were tasty, the scones superb and the cakes excellent. It seemed obvious that they were all home made. One thing that was slightly unusual was that the scones had already been cut and the jam and cream applied prior to serving. This was fine but if you would prefer to put your own preserves and cream on this is not ideal.

Having said that the jam was very good and the cream extremely fresh and tasty!

Overall a very nice experience in a pleasant location and good value for money.

The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient.

We plan to return to try dinner at some point.

After 22 months of planning the day had finally arrived. What can i say the service from when we booked the day to the actual day was fantastic. I cannot thank the staff enough at the courtyard for making our day so perfect in everyway!!!
The hotel rooms were fantasic and all our guests had commented on how beautiful the venue is, one of my guests even mentioned that she was gutted she did not have her wedding reception at the Courtyard!!!
The entire day went without a hitch and Hayley you are a diamond nothing was every too much and you kept the day rolling, you are an angel & i could not of wished for a better person to organise our day!!! (hope you kept the spreadsheets).
Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all at the Courtyard we cannot thank you enough!!!!!!!!! you will always be pary of our love story xxx

We had 40 guests attend a surprise birthday party and were catered for superbly. All the staff were courteous, friendly and efficient. A special thanks to Hayley for sorting everything out and helping it run smoothly on the night. I heard nothing but good comments about the food, our own meals were delicious and the conservatory restaurant itself with the garden surroundings is beautiful. Plus the lawn games kept all the youngsters happy. Best of all we have some great memories of my wife's birthday and that's what it is all about.

We have already booked this for wedding next year but chose to go to see the Frank Sinatra tribute with future parents in law. Food fantastic and served by happy waiting staff, bar staff chatty and efficient. The performer was great, the venue looked lovely, can't fault it in any way, can't wait till our wedding next year.

Excellent! The room was spacious and air conditioning effective on a warm evening. The food was well presented, warm and delicious. The hotel itself is well situated, in peaceful surroundings. Price was very reasonable. One area for improvement is waitressing staff: please make more of an effort to smile when serving food, if just occasionally. Generally, keep up the good work!

A birthday Sunday lunch. Nothing was too much trouble. Two of the guests required gluten & dairy free diets and were catered for splendidly. Although the restaurant was very busy we had excellent, attentive service from polite and helpful staff.
